Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information(Posted March 13, 2020)

Roller Families,

As many of you may already know, Governor Wolf has ordered the closure of all Pennsylvania schools for a period of two weeks.  This will be in effect through 3/29/2020.  Since we had the opportunity to plan in the event of a closure, an educational plan has been put in place.  All elementary students were sent home with a packet of educational materials to complete during these two weeks.  Secondary students were sent home with Chromebooks to access and complete coursework during these two weeks.  We highly recommend that students complete this material to continue academic momentum within their subjects.  More communication will be coming if your child was absent today.  Please be on the lookout for future communications during the closure.  Please remember all official communication from the Steelton-Highspire School District will be posted at www.shsd.k12.pa.us.
