This number is for NON-EMERGENCY calls.  If you have an emergency, call 911. 
In an ongoing effort to promote a safe learning environment, the district is providing the community with an anonymous tip line phone number. The purpose of the tip line is to allow the community the ability to share information anonymously regarding issues that may put others’ safety in danger.  Community members can report information about drugs, weapons, alcohol, violence or any threat to safety.  While this can be done anonymously, the more information given (including one’s name), the greater the ability the district has to do a complete investigation and resolve the situation quickly.

STEAM in Kindergarten

Our kindergarten classes completed a Halloween STEAM lesson in their classrooms!!!  The students designed and built houses for a ghost.  The rules were that it had to stand up and the paper ghost had to fit inside.  They LOVED it and used a lot of good problem solving during the lesson.

road work ahead

Road Work on Shenango Road

We wanted to reach out to be as proactive as possible in regards to the construction on Shenango Road. Columbia Gas is replacing nearly 6000 feet of underground pipe. It is anticipated that this work will continue all school year from 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. with temporary lane restrictions.  Construction will occur along Shenango Road. While we can not change the road work, we can create a transportation plan to help expedite the travel of buses through the construction during dismissal and arrival time for our students at BIS and HMS. We appreciate the time McCarter’s staff has spent to create plans for dismissal and arrival time that we feel may lessen the congestion. At this time, with the roadwork, our transportation is running about ten minutes behind schedule. We ask for your patience as we work through this together to ensure the safe transport of all of our students to and from school. We will continue to meet with McCarter’s Transit Inc. to work together and be as proactive as possible. As the congestion increases, we will be informing you of any changes to our dismissal process to help to alleviate the congestion on Shenango Road.
