ANNOUNCEMENTS
New Student Orientation

Thank you to all of the parents and new band students who attended the New Student Orientation.  A lot of information was covered, so if you missed the meeting, click here to download the 2015-2016 Band Handbook

Volunteer Background Check Information

Many of you may already be aware from attending meetings that the District has a new policy on Volunteers, effective July 1st of this year. This is a new State regulation, and is only being enforced by the District. 

Starting July 1st, ALL adults who have consistent contact with students will need to have all three clearances on file with the district.  This includes the Criminal Background Check, Child Abuse Check and FBI Fingerprints.  The first two are $10 each and the FBI Fingerprint is $27; however, effective July 25, 2015, Governor Wolf has waived the fee for the Criminal Background Check and Child Abuse Check.  You may sign an affidavit form to be exempt from the FBI clearance if you have lived in Pennsylvanin for more than 10 years.  Once you have obtained the necessary paperwork, you must schedule an appointment at the Administration building (717)545-4703.
