New Teacher In-Service Bus Tour

A bus tour of Pottstown was part of the Pottstown School District's new teacher in service program. Teachers got to see the buildings they will teach in and some of the many sights in our community that give us reason to say, “Proud to be from Pottstown.” We welcome them to our community and look forward to them being part of a Trojan team that makes a difference in the lives of students.

Parent Newsletter August 2017

Dear Partners in Pottstown Education:

I hope you are enjoying your summer. Preparations continue throughout the summer to ensure that our students and staff will have a successful transition into the 2017–2018 school year. Below are some important information items for you to know before the school year gets underway.

Immunization Requirements Change This Year - Please be aware that the grace period has been removed regarding immunizations of all students who attend public schools. Before the first day of school, current immunizations must be at least started, if not complete. Please see the details for immunization requirements for all students on our website, and in a separate attachment at the end of this email.

Student Insurance - The school district offers students health insurance through a third party in the beginning of each school year. The state also offers an insurance policy for children called CHIP. Details about the CHIP program are also available in a separate attachment at the end of this email. The district does not endorse or administer these programs, but rather passes on information as a service to our students and families.

Walk – Bike Pottstown – One of the many advantages of living in Pottstown are the walkable and bikeable pathways to school and other neighborhood venues. This year, the school district will highlight different opportunities to safely walk and bike to school and other locations in the borough. I will be leading by example by using a bike as much as possible in the Borough. More information will be provided throughout the year.

The School Uniform Policy does not change for the 2017–2018 school year. Please note that while the school board has been debating potential changes to the dress code policy, no changes have yet been made. Dress code expectations from last year will remain the same in the 2017 2018 school year.

High School Schedules – As we transition to a new updated software on our student information system, and complete the scheduling process, high school schedules for students should be open on Eschool during the week of August 14.

Class Lists – Class lists should be available to all elementary and middle school parents during the week of August 14. Please check the website at that time or log into your eschool portal.

Report Cards - As we explore the options of electronic communication, report cards will be available electronically this year. We will also provide a printed copy as in the past. As we move into the age of digital records, you will have quicker and long lasting access to your student’s grades.

Save the Lights – Please join us on September 8, 2017 at 7 PM in Grigg Memorial Stadium for a celebration ceremony during the football game “under the lights”. Thank you to everyone who supported and gave to the "Save the Lights" campaign!

Social Media- In addition to phone calls and emails, don't forget to follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook! We continue to use social media to keep you informed about the great things going on in our schools!

The first day of school is August 28, 2017. Please enjoy the rest of your summer and stay safe!

Immunization Rule Back to School

CHIP Insurance
 

Great News!

Pottstown School District has been awarded a grant from Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts that will allow us to offer a full day pre-k counts classroom at Franklin, Lincoln and Rupert, in addition to the Barth pre-K classroom that started last year. The grant funding, combined with district funds, allows us the unique ability to offer a full day pre-K classroom experience to all families of 4 year old children regardless of income, as long as they reside in Pottstown School District and fill out the proper paperwork.

This pre-K expansion in Rupert, Franklin, & Lincoln elementary schools allows more children the opportunity to a brighter future and greater success! This also means we now have a Full day pre-K classroom in ALL of our Elementary Schools!

Families interested in this opportunity should call 610-718-8635 or visit our website at www.pottstownschools.org to register or obtain more information.  

Immunize...In 2017 It's the Rule for Back to School!


PA Law mandates that every child K-12 be immunized on the 1st day of school.
