    Class of 2020 and Families:

    Administrators and Senior Class Officers have been meeting regularly and have discussed various options for a graduation ceremony and other year-end celebratory events.  Our primary goals are two-fold.  First, to keep everyone safe, abiding by the directives provided by the closure, and second, to hold an in-person graduation ceremony prior to the start of the next school year.  With these goals in mind, we have set May 15, 2020 as our deadline to determine if an in-person graduation ceremony can be held on May 28,2020---our original graduation date.  If that is not permitted, we will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and public health guidance to determine a permissible date.  Along with the Senior Class Officers, the Administration appreciates your patience as we try to provide the best celebration for this wonderful group of Golden Eagles!

    CHIP poster

    The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) covers uninsured kids and teens up to age 19. With more than 139,000 uninsured children in Pennsylvania, this is great news for families! CHIP provides quality, comprehensive health insurance for routine doctor visits, prescriptions, dental, eye care, eyeglasses, mental health and much more. CHIP covers uninsured kids who are not eligible for Medical Assistance. For most families, CHIP is free – for others, it is low cost.

    • 4 doses of polio
    • 2 doses of measles, mumps and rubella
    • 3 doses of hepatitis B
    • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity


    7th through 12th grade students need to meet ADDITIONAL immunization requirements for attendance:

    • 2 doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV): The 1st dose is given 11-15 years of age and the 2nd dose is required at age 16 or entry into 12th grade
