COVID-19 GRADING UPDATESMontoursville Area High School will be concluding the graded portion of the 2019-20 academic school year on April 17th.  THE 3RD 9-WEEKS WILL END ON APRIL 17TH.  There will be no grades for the 4th marking period.  The following changes to our grading policies, class rank, GPA, and credits can be found below.  Credit Recovery opportunities will be available during the month of May for students that did not pass.  Enrichment and Review will continue for everyone else.  Further guidance will be coming on Enrichment and Review.  THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BASED ON STATE GOVERNMENT DECISIONS.

  • CREDITS For the 19-20 school year, full credit will be awarded with a grade of 70% or higher or P(Pass) in courses based on a 3 9-weeks average of grades.  For example, a course that was originally 1 credit, will be awarded as such.  Credits will be awarded as if we had a full school year. 
  • GRADES Grades will be determined on the first 3 nine-weeks.  Mid-Terms will not be factored into the grades unless it helped a student.  Teachers have the ultimate decision on how to use the mid-term to help a student’s grade.  There are no free passes under the pandemic for the 19-20 school year.
  • CLASS RANK AND GPAClass rank and GPA calculations will not change due to the pandemic for the 19-20 school year.
  • GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS No graduation requirements have been suspended or waived due to the pandemic for the 2019-20 school year.  Freshmen who did not complete one of the rotation classes(Financial Literacy or Information Literacy) will not be required to take that course.  A new version of Financial Literacy will be available to all Juniors(11th Grade) beginning in the 2020-21 school year.
  • ENRICHMENT AND REVIEWEnrichment and review will not be used in the calculation of grades.  Therefore, the 4th 9 weeks will not have grades associated with it.  Students are encouraged to complete Enrichment and Review.  Much of this work will better prepare students for next school year.  For example, students in Honors Biology will need some information not yet covered to be better prepared for AP Biology.  The Enrichment activities will include these missed concepts.  Parents are encouraged to continue to promote the Enrichment and Review activities to better prepare students for next school year.  For seniors, this experience will help with any remote learning that may take place at the collegiate level for future closings due to pandemics or weather-related closings.

SCHOOLS CLOSED Pennsylvania schools will remain closed through their academic year.  Montoursville Area High School will end its school year on June 5, 2020.  Seniors will conclude their year on May 29, 2020.  The graduation date for seniors will be June 5, 2020 for reporting purposes and as printed on transcripts.  Please follow the regular school calendar.

2020 KEYSTONE EXAMSThe Keystone Exams in Biology, Algebra, and English Literature have been cancelled by the Pennsylvania Department of Education for the 2019-20 school year.  Further direction and guidance will be needed from the Department of Education.

2020 GRADUATION No decision has been made to postpone or cancel the graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020.  The ceremony has NOT been canceled or postponed to date.  Watch this site for updates.  Seniors may want to watch my message found below on this page.  FOR REPORTING PURPOSES, TRANSCRIPTS WILL BE PRINTED WITH A GRADUATION DATE OF JUNE 5, 2020.

2020 PROM –  No decision has been made to postpone or cancel the 2020 Prom.  It has NOT been cancelled or postponed at this time.  Continue to watch this site for updates.

ATHLETIC NOTICE from PIAA As of Monday, March 30, the PIAA Board of Directors met and continues to only postpone spring sports.  That is good news.  There is still hope.  Any informal practices or “captain’s” practices are against the rules at this point.  Please pay attention to the Governor’s warnings.  The best thing you can do now is stay home.  Continued gathering will only prolong this through community spread.  The sooner this slows down, the sooner we get our student-athletes back to competition.  Don’t force the PIAA to cancel the season by not complying.  Also, do not hop the fence of the stadium or use any district athletic facilities.  All district property is closed.  Failure to comply could result in having to self-report informal practices.

DISTRICT-WIDE ART CELEBRATION CANCELEDThis event will not be rescheduled for the 2019-20 school year.

MAY SAT CANCELEDThe May SAT has been canceled.  The June testing is still scheduled.  Check collegeboard.org for more details.

“Some days, doing ‘the best we can’ may still fall short of what we would like to be able to do, but life isn’t perfect on any front-and doing what we can with what we have is the most we should expect of ourselves or anyone else.”
