spring scavenger hunt: Outdoor Adventures

Home and School is putting together a spring scavenger hunt on the nature trail. The theme is outdoor adventures. Think anything that can be done outside - camping, gardening, playing sports (baseball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, lacrosse, swimming, etc.), picnicking, hiking, bicycling, etc.


If you have anything we could use for the scavenger hunt - anything that could survive being outside - that you would like to lend (or give), please email volunteer@salfordhillshsa.org. This would be a perfect place to get rid of your broken or dilapititated or unused equipment or sporting goods.


Once confirming your items via email, you can drop off your items to three of our Home & School board members over the weekend or Monday, April 26th.


2440 Josie Lane 19438 (Lisa James) 215-470-4351

315 Meadow Lane 18969 (Trish May) 610-999-8798

822 Salford Station Rd 19473 (Danielle Moyer) 215-264-8408


Thanks for partnering together to offer our kids another way to enjoy a brain break outside during the school day.

In compliance with the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSE), the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) requires all public school districts in the Commonwealth to administer the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) in English language arts, mathematics, and science. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates of the testing window for the 2020-2021 school year were expanded by PDE to provide schools with more flexibility regarding when to administer the assessment. All testing, including for SAOA students, must occur in-person and schools "are expected to make a good faith effort to test all eligible students within the parameters of local health and safety plans."

We appreciate your continued vigilance regarding COVID-19 health and safety guidelines. As inconvenient as it may be, please carefully consider your interactions with the extended community, including large gatherings, multi-family engagements, sleepovers, and neighborhood interactions between children, whether they be playing outside or inside. Given national guidance regarding interactions with individuals who are not part of the family unit, mask-wearing is imperative.


Stay home if you:
Please keep your child home if he/she has been in close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19.

  • Have one or more symptoms in Group A OR
  • Have two or more symptoms in Group B OR
  • Are taking fever reducing medication.

If your child’s symptoms meet the criteria for keeping them home from school, please contact your healthcare provider, inform them of your child’s symptoms, and follow their advice.

If a household member has tested positive for COVID-19, it is necessary for all members of the family residing with that person to quarantine. The District is strictly following household contact quarantine guidelines. Also, please be sure to adhere to the athletic spectator guidelines provided by your school and limit carpooling.

Additional reminders:

Please keep your child home if he/she is:
*NOTE: If you have questions about your child’s quarantine, please call your school’s nurse before sending your child back to school.

  • Feeling sick
  • Experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. For a list of symptoms and school exclusion guidelines, please see the COVID-19 School Exclusion Requirements found on our Illness Indicators/Sick Day Guidelines Web page
  • Awaiting a COVID-19 test result and has not yet been cleared to return
  • Quarantined due to a recent close contact with an individual with COVID-19
  • Traveled internationally

These practices are a critical part of limiting the spread of this disease in our school community and keeping our schools open. For information regarding COVID-19 cases in SASD, visit the District's COVID-19 Dashboard.
