IMPORTANT TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION UPDATED 2:00PM

IMPORTANT TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION

Updated @ 2:00 PM on Wednesday, September 5

 

Dear MNSD Families,

 

We are continuing to work through a few outstanding issues with regard to the bus schedules, specifically, adjusting the arrival and drop-off times of each student.  However, due to the BMW Invitational Golf Tournament at Aronimink Golf Club, traffic detours and volume have imposed a significant burden on our ability to establish accurate drop-off times the first week of school.  While we have reached an agreement allowing our buses to access roads that are closed to the public, the issue remains that there is significant volume on surrounding roadways. This heavy traffic is causing our busses to be delayed as they commute from other schools and bus stops.  Unfortunately, we anticipate this situation will likely worsen when the tournament begins play on September 6...

9/29/2017 UPDATE REGARDING 9th GRADE BOYS SOCCER PLAYER’S RIGHT TO WEAR APPROPRIATE RELIGIOUS HEADWEAR

On Tuesday afternoon (09.26.17), our District’s 9th grade boys soccer team played an away match against Conestoga High School.   One of our students on this team wears religious headwear in observation of his Sikh faith.

 

Early in the match, the PIAA referee assigned by PIAA to officiate the match informed our student that he was not permitted to wear his headwear while playing. 

 

Our team’s soccer coach, Mike Snow, responded to the referee that our student wore his headwear for religious purposes.

 

Nevertheless, the referee indicated that our student needed to remove his headwear, and if he refused to do so, our student would not be permitted to play in the match.   

 

Coach Snow vociferously objected to the referee’s ruling regarding our student’s headwear.  Despite Coach Snow’s strenuous advocacy for the right of our student to appropriately wear religious headwear, the referee did not reverse his ruling. Therefore, our student was relegated to the sidelines for the match.

 

Coach Snow immediately telephoned Athletic Director Chris Gicking to alert him to this issue.  AD Gicking immediately and strenuously advocated for our student, including with his contact at PIAA, in an effort to permit our student to play in this match.  AD Gicking also communicated with the opposing team’s athletic director and his assistant, who joined with our District in strong agreement that our student should be permitted to play in the match while wearing his religious headwear.  Unfortunately, AD Gicking’s efforts were to no avail, and therefore our student remained relegated to the sidelines for the remainder of the match.

Autism Speaks Walk

We invite all district students, staff, families and friends to join us as Tigers Team Up for autism at Philadelphia’s annual Autism Speaks Walk. Our team has included over 100 participants and is one of the top fundraising teams each year! Join us as we show our TIGER PRIDE and hope to top those numbers at this year's Walk!

SPP Scores Released Today

Dear Parents/Guardians/Community Stakeholders,

Today, October 13, 2016, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) released the 2016 School Performance Profiles (SPP). With the exception of our high school, our schools did not have an SPP score last year. 

This year, 2016, reflects the first SPP scores of students using the rigorous PA Core Standards. The SPP uses a formula that is heavily dependent on standardized test scores. Pennsylvania aligned its standardized testing system to the more rigorous PA Core Standards and while the performance is still in transition, it is trending in the right direction.

Our schools remain strong in academic achievement and by next year we expect the achievement to be more fully apparent when tied to the SPP score. SPP scores can be viewed by visiting http://paschoolperformance.org/. Please contact your child’s principal if you wish further information about the SPP.

Thank you,
Dr. Cary

Important Message From Dr. Cary

To the Parents/Guardians of Marple Newtown School District Students

Our district administrators became aware of an alleged “creepy clown” incident that may have taken place during the football game on Friday, October 7th. The Newtown Township police who were on site for the game were made aware of the concern at that time. We have no knowledge about the identity of any alleged perpetrator. If you have any information about this alleged incident, please immediately report it to the Newtown Township Police Department.
 
Because the safety and security of our school community are of paramount concern, we ask that our parents and guardians partner with us in assuring that our students clearly understand that our District does not tolerate incidents of this kind.  They are not funny pranks. Instead, they can terrorize our children and expose the perpetrators themselves to the risk of serious harm.  Our District will hold any student perpetrator within our jurisdiction properly accountable in accordance with this serious level of infraction.    

MNHS Youth Night - Marple Newtown Football vs. Ridley High School, October 7, 2016

Spectators will not be allowed to bring large bags into the stadium, a practice that is currently in place at most venues across the country.  This includes, but is not limited to, book bags, drawstring bags, or oversized handbags.  Small purses or handbags are permissible.  

We would like to thank you in advance as we take the safety and security of our students, staff, and community very seriously.

INCLEMENT WEATHER UPDATE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

At last evening’s Curriculum, Instruction and Technology Committee meeting, there was a very good discussion about our 7 snow days, delayed openings and potential opportunities to making up the missed days. 

Currently, with three snow days built into our calendar for K-11 and the option to use two Act 80 professional development days, we will likely only be required to make up two snow days, if there is no more inclement weather.  For seniors, there are no snow days in the calendar, as they graduate almost a week earlier.  We will have to make up five missed days for seniors.

There was a sentiment amongst the audience and Board of School Directors to make up the missed days over spring break.  This would provide a positive instructional experience for our students, rather than adding days at the end of the year in June.

All 500 Pennsylvania Superintendents are awaiting guidance and clarification from the Pennsylvania Department of Education as to options for making up missed days using instructional hours versus 180 required school days.  We are hopeful for information this week.

There will be further discussion and recommendations at the February 25 School Board meeting at 7:30 p.m. at the Administration Building.

School closed for students, Two hour delay for Administration and Support Staff 2/14/2014

STATEMENT OF MARPLE NEWTOWN SCHOOL DISTRICT RELATING TO BUS NO. 82

The safety of all children entrusted to the District's care is its paramount concern.  At the same time, the District must recognize that criminal charges, especially those involving non-work-related conduct, are only allegations and that people who are criminally charged must be presumed innocent unless proven guilty in court.  In addition, the District must respect the privacy concerns of its employees.

In light of all of these concerns, the District can assure the community that it has taken prompt and appropriate steps to ensure that this particular employee is not performing any functions for the District during the pendency of the criminal charges.

Message from Dr. Cary regarding PSSA/Keystone

Dear Parents,

This week begins our journey through the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA). We begin with the PSSA and end with the Keystone Exams in May. The assessment was developed to reflect the PA Core Standards which were adopted in 2013. The PA Core Standards are more rigorous than those that had been previously adopted in Pennsylvania. The PA Core Standards challenge students to think deeply about their learning and require a level of knowledge and skill needed for students to be successful beyond the K-12 years.

New PA Immunization Regulations as of August 1, 2017

Parents will have a much shorter time to provide proof of immunization due to these new regulations.  Previously, families had 8 months to provide proof of immunization to the school.  The regulations require most proof of immunization to be provided on or before the first day of school or risk their child’s exclusion from school.  The goal is to ensure that children in school are adequately protected from preventable diseases.

Children in ALL grades (K-12) need the following immunizations for attendance:

  • 4 doses of tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis
  • 4 doses of polio (4th dose on or after 4th birthday AND at least 6 months after previous dose
  • 2 doses of measles, mumps, rubella
  • 3 doses of hepatitis B
  • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity

7th grade ADDITIONAL requirements:

  • 1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap)
  • 1 dose meningococcal vaccine (MCV)

12th grade ADDITIONAL requirements:

  • 2nd dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV)  If the first dose was given at 16 years of age or older, only one dose is required.

Exemptions to school law for immunizations:

  • Medical reasons
  • Religious beliefs
  • Philosophical/strong moral or ethical conviction

If a child is exempt, he or she may be removed from school during an outbreak/health emergency

Additional information regarding immunization requirements may be found by visiting the PA Department of Health website at www.health.pa.gov.

MARPLE NEWTOWN SCHOOL DISTRICT PROVIDES UPDATE REGARDING ONGOING TEACHER CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS

The Marple Newtown School District has been negotiating a successor labor agreement with its teacher’s union (“MNEA”) since January 9, 2015.  The District takes this bargaining process very seriously, including most recently by releasing union representatives from their work day on October 12, 2015 in order to focus a full day toward reaching a settlement.  Members of the District’s bargaining team with full authority to recommend an agreement for Board approval have attended each bargaining session and have worked – both during and in between bargaining sessions – to incorporate aspects of the union’s requests into the district’s proposals.  The District has carefully reviewed market conditions and its own internal and community needs, and offered MNEA a comprehensive compensation package that raises starting salaries and includes salary increases for current teachers that far exceed the current cost of living increase.  The District greatly appreciates the work that our teachers do, and will continue to work in good faith to reach a settlement that is fair to all parties affected.

At the regularly scheduled Board Meeting on June 26, 2018, the Marple Newtown Board of School Directors approved the 2018-2019 General Operating Budget.  This budget included funds for enhancing the district safety and security initiatives with the creation of two  positions.  The new Director of School Safety will be a professionally trained individual who will strengthen district security systems and manage the district safety programs, as well as, security personnel.  This individual, along with the newly created police officer position, will provide an increased level of security presence and response to the existing security team.   The addition of these new personnel in the area of security  are the first of several steps being taken by the district to improve the overall safety of the school district... 

An Important Message from Dr. Cary

Very recently, some information has appeared on social media concerning highly disturbing communications and on-line posts apparently made by a now-deceased resident of Hazelton, PA to randomly-targeted and innocent school students and their families throughout the United States, including two families within our District.  This now-deceased Hazelton resident has no other connection with our District.   

 

At the recommendation of the Executive Director of our Delaware County Intermediate Unit, we are sharing with you updated information that she received yesterday afternoon from the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office....

Message from Dr. Cary

March 19, 2018


Dear Parents and Students,

 

It will be spring in just a few days! The winter will soon be behind us and we can look forward to warmer days ahead. Over the last few months while I was recuperating, I heard of the many good things happening in the district and I was so pleased.

 

I’d like to thank the School Board, Mr. Joe Driscoll, the cabinet, administrators, teachers, and staff for their efforts during my absence.

 

I’d like to thank our students for making us proud each day. I was especially proud of our high school students on the day of the Walk for our Lives event.

 

I wish you a warm spring recess and joyful holidays.

Sincerely,


Dr. Carol Cary

Make-up Days during Spring Break

Dear Marple Newtown Families,


I know that this winter has been difficult for both families and school operations.


As we continue through the month of March, the district must reassess the academic calendar.  Meeting student instructional days is a priority. As indicated on the school calendar, days over spring break will be used for make-up days.


To meet the required 180 days of school set by the state, our schools will be in session on Monday, March 26, Tuesday, March 27 and Wednesday, March 28, 2018. If there are additional school closures, the district will reevaluate the school calendar at that time.


Having the additional days of instruction prior to the PSSA testing is a benefit for students.  We know that this change may effect prior plans for families.  If your child or children will be absent during those three days, please speak with your child’s principal.

 

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.

 

Regards,


Joseph Driscoll
Substitute Superintendent

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - GRADES 1-12 REGISTRATION

MNSD Email Communications

The Marple Newtown School District employs multiple methods of technology to communicate with its students, families, and community members.  Email has proven to be a highly effective and efficient form of communication for the district however, it has come to our attention that not all our email communications have been received.  This is most likely due to the safeguards that your internet and or email provider has put into place specifically, Anti-SPAM filters. 

 

To ensure the proper and timely delivery of district email messages, we are asking that you “whitelist” or “allow” the mnsd.org domain and donotreply@mnsd.org email address in your email account.  Thank you for your assistance in this matter and helping us serve our community.

Academic Calendar 2018-2019

Our Academic Calendar for School Year 2018-2019 is on the website (under the header ‘News, Events and Calendar’). It was recommended by district administration and approved last evening at the Regular Board Meeting.

 

You will notice that the calendar has 183 school days for all students K-12.  Our make-up days are listed in the lower left corner.  It is our intention to use these make-up days in the order listed on the calendar as school closures occur, barring any unanticipated considerations.

 

The district also has adopted a modified spring break schedule for next year.  After careful consideration, administration recommended this calendar version, which includes a shorter spring break and an earlier year end, because it has several benefits.  These benefits include allowing for more meaningful instructional time and more flexibility in scheduling of PSSA’s, with the goal of improving student achievement and reducing student stress relating to testing. 

 

For example, the calendar allows the district to utilize the days before and after Spring Break for testing, giving the students a rest between testing sessions, and therefore a less stressful testing schedule. Please note that the testing schedule is specific to the individual school as long as it falls within the window from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

Summer Reading Lists 2018

Dear MNSD Families-

 

The purpose of summer reading this year is to promote student choice. In an effort to support our students’ development of critical reading, thinking, and writing skills, students must be given the opportunity to take ownership of their reading choices. There are suggested titles that provide choice, as well as, opportunity for exposure to interact with texts that will assist in developing their understanding, perspective, and appreciation for the people, places, and ideas that comprise their world. 

 

The MNHS link provides both required titles and the opportunity for choice. Please note that this list also contains titles for all content areas and the related assignments.

The PHMS links include the rubrics which will be used to score the summer reading assignments so students can use them as a guide for completion.

Superintendent’s Welcome Back Message to Students and Parents

Dear Students and Parents,

As we begin School Year 2016-2017, we share our K-12 vision for a district united by its mascot, colors, vision, and community spirit. We mark this new school year by all schools using the tiger mascot and all schools using the district colors of orange and black (with white and grey as accent colors). While we know each school has its own culture and unique tradition, and we do not want to lose that, we also know that our students need to be part of a K-12 process that begins with students entering the district in kindergarten or first grade and staying with us through high school graduation...

Mini-THON 2018 MINI-THON 2018

The inaugural MNHS Mini-THON concluded as an enormous success on Friday, March 16.  MNHS students and advisors formed many lasting partnerships within the community during the last few months.  These relationships undoubtedly contributed to exceeding the organization's initial goal of raising $10,000.00 toward childhood cancer research.  A cumulative sum of $22,191.01 was raised to contribute to Four Diamonds, an organization that has helped nearly 4,000 children and families and supported a diverse platform of cancer research at Penn State Children's Hospital.  The philanthropic efforts of our students, staff, and community coincide with the additional 90,000 student volunteers and 265 schools across the nation who are bringing hope to families in need and giving back to their community.  We are proud to be part of such an awesome and inspiring cause!
