Parents/Guardians, emails were sent to your child re: their designated day and time for all locker clean outs, Chromebook returns, yearbook pick ups, library book returns, etc. Please have your child check their emails for their specific time slot. If you aren't able to make that time, please contact the office for a new day and time. All students must wear masks in the building. Due to the restriction of no more than 25 persons in the building at one time, we ask that all guardians/parents please wait outside to allow the maximum number of students. Thank you for your understanding.

Dear Seniors and their Parents or Guardians, This message is to help clarify the plans that are in the works for end of the year activities. First, seniors will be given a time to report to the High School on Thursday, May 14 or Friday, May 15 to pick-up their caps, gowns, cords, yearbooks, and a celebratory yard sign. These items will be distributed through a curbside pickup. On these days, seniors will also be provided a time slot to come in on Monday, May 18 to have a video taken of them walking across the stage in their caps, gowns, and cords. A professional still photo will also be taken. The videos will be added to a virtual graduation ceremony that is being created. This ceremony will include videos of all speakers, graduates walking across the stage and information about each graduate. This will be a high-quality production that Mr. Whisel, Mr. Otis and others have invested many hours in creating. The ceremony is planned to premiere on Friday, May 22 at 7:00 p.m. A link will be sent at a later time. The District and Class Officers have also selected a date of July 17 as a make-up date for the Senior Prom at the Casino in Altoona. (this activity is contingent on state regulations in place at that time) The District and Class officers have also planned a Senior get together for July 24. It is our hope that this can be a time for students to gather for a few hours, get photos with friends and staff, get yearbooks signed and do some class recognitions. (this activity is also contingent on state regulations at the time.) Finally, the District and Renaissance will be putting together a full color newsletter at the end of summer focusing on the senior class, it will contain pictures of all seniors as well as other photos and information about the class of 2020. All seniors will receive a hard copy and an electronic copy. This newsletter will also be distributed throughout the community. The Everett Area School District understands that the class of 2020 has missed out on many important and traditional activities. It is our hope to do all we can to reschedule events that we can, and to find creative ways to hold those activities that we cannot reschedule. Thank you

Dear Parents and Guardians, This message is meant to be an update on student activities which we have been receiving questions on. Each building will arrange for a procedure at the end of the school year for students and teachers to clean out lockers, classrooms, return books, return computers, finalize obligations and more. That information will be given closer to the end of May and the Process will be determined by the State restrictions at that time. Graduation will not be a typical process, as our guidelines will not allow for an event such as that. Our goal will be to provide a graduation option that will meet the needs of all students receiving their diplomas on time. This is critically important for students who are enrolled in the military or other option that requires them to leave the area. All caps and gowns have been received by the school district; in the near future you will get information for the Highschool regarding distribution. The prom is also in question. We have reserved another date for this event to occur, which is later in the summer. Again, State guidelines and the department of health restrictions will dictate if an event such as this is possible. We have also discussed options for a senior gathering later in the summer, which will also be dependent on State Guidelines for group interactions. There are many unknowns right now and we apologize for not being able to provide exact answers. We don't have those answers right now to provide. The District is moving forward with a plan to provide seniors with diplomas at or around the original scheduled time. More information will follow regarding this process. At this time, the most important thing is for families to abide by the restrictions in place and for students to complete their assignments and do their best with the programs being provided. Seniors should take this time to meet any outstanding obligations with grades, assignments, etc. As we have more information on the end of year topics, we will be sure to share that information. Thank You

Dear Parents and Guardians, As you may be aware, the Governor announced today that schools will remain closed throughout the end of this school year. Everett Area will continue to provide online learning and focus on the essential skills needed in each content area. As of now, the Everett School District will follow the original school calendar with the last student day being May 22nd. Students will be evaluated with either a Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory performance that will not impact overall grade point average but will be recorded for future reference. We encourage parents to work with our teachers to ensure students are completing assignments and continuing to grow educationally. All end of year activities are now under discussion and more information will follow, as we continue to get new information. On a separate note, we will be distributing breakfasts and lunches tomorrow, Friday April 10 at the normal times and locations. Thank you and have a nice evening.

Parents, Guardians and Students: On Thursday, April 9, 2020, teachers will close their grade books for the 3rd nine-weeks.

Any questions should be referred to your student’s building Principal. Thank you

Parents, Guardians and Students, The PA Department of Education has announced that the school closure for students has been extended until at least April 9. We have some conflicting messages on the actual return date for students, however, it is clear that the shutdown will continue beyond the initial two-week closure. To provide continuity of education for our students please prepare to begin online instruction on Monday, March 30. The Principals will be in touch with you later this week with further details and more information. Thank you.
Parents and Guardians. To help minimize the amount of trips and exposure for both parents and staff, we will be altering our lunch and breakfast distribution schedule. Starting tomorrow, Monday March 23, 2020, we will begin handing out meals on Monday, Wednesday and Friday only. We will hand out double meals on Monday and Wednesday to cover the days in between. On Friday we will hand out triple meals to cover the weekend. You can pick up the meals between 11:30 - 12:30 at the High School, Breezewood Elementary and the old Mann Monroe Elementary. Thank You.
Good Evening, It has been brought to our attention that there is some questions about the enforcement of book bags, coats/jackets, and hats. We have been policing this throughout the year and recently the issue has been brought to the forefront. In the handbook under hair and dress number 10, students are allowed to bring them but need placed in lockers in the morning. This is a safety concern. No punishments have been given yet just warnings. We have lockers available in hallways and the locker rooms and have given extra time in situations that we have deemed necessary. This is strictly informational and this is not a new rule. We encourage you to, as weather gets nicer, to review the student dress with your student. Further questions, please call the high school office at 814.652.9114.
