  • To our community, In light of last night's tragic events in State College, we want to take a moment to reassure you of the safety of your children, our students, when at school. Although there is no longer any danger associated with last night's events, we know the information relayed through the news media can cause anxiety and emotional response.  Our hearts go out to the victims and their families.  Again, please know our students' safety is our primary concern. Should your child need to talk with a counselor regarding his/her feelings of this recent event, counselors are available to support him/her.
