'Twisted' Board Meeting, 9-22-16

Well if you were not at last night's School Board meeting you missed out on the Save The Lights report and hearing about a plan that may save the taxpayers a million dollars. Your biggest loss may have been the opportunity to see the support effort to raise awareness of childhood cancer.

Attention! PMS Car and Bus Line Procedures

Drop off and pick up traffic patterns are about to change for Pottstown Middle School.  

 

CHANGES TO TAKE EFFECT ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26TH, 2016

 

In cooperation with the Pottstown Police Department, we have developed new drop off and pick up procedures in an effort to increase the safety around the Middle School campus.    

 

All local non school related traffic will be diverted off Franklin Street onto Nightingale Street. All traffic coming down Franklin which passes by Nightingale Street will be directed into our carline.   No pick-ups or drop-offs will be allowed in front of the school or on the neighboring streets. Traffic patterns will be modified on school days in the morning from 7:15 to 7:45 AM and in the afternoon from 2:15 to 2:45 PM. 

 

In an effort to help clarify the patterns, two maps have been attached. One shows the patterns directly around the school while the other shows streets and patterns in the community surrounding the Middle School. A video will follow shortly to help explain the process.

 

We appreciate your support in keeping our students and staff safe.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

2016-17 School Year Update

July 14, 2016

Dear Partners In Pottstown Education:

As we begin the 2016-17 school year I am excited to support the school district as Acting Superintendent.  Many of you may know me as the former principal at Pottstown High School.  The past three years I have served in the central office recruiting talented teachers and support staff as well as supporting the education programs throughout the district.  During this transitional time we will continue in the district’s mission to "prepare each student by name for success at every level”. We believe our students are the future leaders of tomorrow, and the entire PSD staff looks forward to partnering with you to ensure their success!

 

Important information for the 2016-2017 school year:

 

NEW HOURS OF OPERATION- Based on concerns expressed by parents about dropping off students in multiple schools, we modified our Hours Of Operations to support the needs of our families.  Please see below for the changes at the elementary, middle, and high schools.

 

Schools

Hours of Operation for Students

2016-2017

Middle School Grades 5/6/7/8

7:50 AM – 2:25 PM

High School Grades 9-12

7:55 AM – 2:40 PM

Elementary

8:40 AM – 3:10 PM

 

RECORDS UPDATE- In case of an emergency, and  in order to provide effective communication it is vital that you update and return the student information forms.  Please be sure to include a cell phone number if you wish to receive text message updates.  Also, please be sure to include a current email address.  Providing  an email address is the only way you may gain access to your child’s grades and attendance information online.

Enjoy the rest of your summer, and we look forward to seeing you on the first day of school for students, August 29, 2016!   “Proud to be from Pottstown.”

 

Stephen Rodriguez

Acting Superintendent
