High School Parent/Guardian Resources
Educational Trips for Students
Students may be excused from school attendance for up to five (5) school days per year to participate in educational tours or trips when such trips are evaluated and approved by the school principal in advance.
The trip dates may be non-contiguous but cannot be taken with the first and last ten days of the school year, nor during standardized testing windows. Print this form or pick one up at the school office and must be submitted no less than two (2) weeks prior to the trip.
There is no master supply list for high school students. Each teacher will let their students know their expectations on one of the first days that class meets.

Attention Parents: With the sunny weather and outside activities approaching please note the following message to keep our students Sun Safe. We encourage the application of sunscreen at home in the morning before the school day when extended outdoor activities are scheduled. We also encourage and allow sun protective clothing including hats. The PA School Code was recently amended to include sun protection measures for students. It now allows for the use of a non-aerosol topical sunscreen product by students in school. The sunscreen must be FDA approved. The parent/guardian must submit two forms which can be found below. The first form is for the parent/guardian to submit allowing the student to use the topical sunscreen. The second form is for the student to submit stating that they are aware of the proper use and safety precautions of the product and will handle it appropriately. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
