The vision of the Penn Hills School District is to engage our entire community to inspire individual students to their highest levels of reading and academic achievement while instilling a commitment to service, respect, and life-long learning.
***Viewing Student Grades***
Parents with students in 1st through 12th grade are able to view their child’s grades on Edline. The grades for Marking Period 2 will be posted to Edline on Monday morning, January 26th.
***Determining Weather-Related Schedule Changes***
The Penn Hills Schools District views safety as a top priority. We also try to be most respectful of hectic family schedules and overlapping obligations. In this regard and during bouts of inclement weather, the following are monitored and reviewed throughout the evening, night, and morning: reported road conditions, up-to-date forecasts, time of day, and projected traffic patterns. Assisting us in the consideration of school delays and/or cancellations are staff from the Penn Hills Police Department, Penn Hills Municipality, and Penn DOT who are actually on the roads most times and have first-hand information.
We ask for your patience when forecasts change, when storm fronts take an unexpected turn, and especially when conditions change drastically after our high school buses have already left the garage and are on their way to our local bus stops. In most cases, it is not safe to change plans after students are already being picked up, as most parents/guardians have already made their plans for the day and older siblings who may help with supervising younger children have already left for school.
Please trust that we attempt to assess present conditions and those that are predicted by various weather forecasting sources as quickly and as accurately as possible. Equally important, please trust that we will reach out to families via local media and mass communication tools as soon as that final decision is made.
