Dear Chicora Elementary Families,
We look forward to welcoming our elementary students back to school tomorrow morning.
At Chicora Elementary School, buses will enter from Kittanning Street from 8:10 AM until approximately 8:30 AM and drop students off at the left side of the school building. We ask that no cars enter the roadway during this time.
Parent drop-offs can begin at approximately 8:30 AM after the buses have arrived. Once you have dropped your child off, all vehicles will go around the back of the building and follow the road down to Spring Street to exit the campus.
We ask that you follow the time restrictions for the safety of the students.
Afternoon pick-up will occur at the side door after the buses depart the bus lane at approximately 3:30 PM. If you need to pick your child up during the school day, please send a note with your child or call the school in advance. You will pick your child up at the side door.
CHIP covers uninsured kids up to age 19 in Pennsylvania. It doesn’t matter why your kids don’t have health coverage right now; CHIP may be able to help. Most kids receive CHIP for free. Others can get the same benefits at a low cost. CHIP is brought to you by leading health insurance companies who offer quality, comprehensive coverage.
Dear Karns City Families,
We hope you are enjoying your summer! As we continue to prepare for the upcoming school year, we want to share a few important updates with you. We hope you find this information helpful!
During the summer, construction began on renovating and enlarging Chicora Elementary School. The project is progressing and work will continue throughout the school year. As we prepare for the start of the 2023-2024 school year, it has become necessary to delay the start of school for both our elementary schools by one week. The high school will start as scheduled, with the first student day on August 23, 2023 for secondary students. The new start day for the elementary students at both Chicora and Sugarcreek Elementary School will be August 30, 2023. The one-week delay for the elementary schools will permit contractors to complete items necessary to start the new school year.
High School students who wish to request a schedule change can do so by completing our change request form.
