We have been experiencing intermittent outages with the District's voicemail system which is resulting in the auto-attendant not answering inbound calls. We are working to resolve the issue.
With the potential inclement weather approaching on Monday, we wanted to remind parents to check the District's cable stations and website for information regarding delays or cancellations. A SchoolMessenger call will also be initiated as well.

This year the Wissahickon School District is implementing a new school volunteer policy, WSD Board Policy #902. School volunteers are now categorized into two contact categories, Limited Contact Volunteer and Substantial Contact Volunteer.
Limited Contact Volunteers are individuals who are volunteering in the school setting and there is no time when the volunteer is alone with a student or in a secluded, isolated or remote area with a student without a school district employee being present. Limited Contact Volunteers must complete a disclosure statement.
Substantial Contact Volunteers are individuals who are likely to have direct contact with a student while performing volunteer service without direct supervision by a school district employee. Direct contact time may include, but is not limited to, coaching and/or assisting with an athletic team, advising an extracurricular activity, chaperoning an overnight field trip or competition, and/or providing supplemental assistance to a student, without direct supervision by a school district employee.
If you plan to be a school volunteer and will be participating in activities/events that are defined by the Substantial Contact Volunteer description, you will be required to be board approved after obtaining the appropriate security clearances. For information regarding clearances, please click the headline above.
Any questions regarding Policy #902, should be directed to the appropriate school Principal or Director of Personnel.
Individual Student Reports from the spring PSSA and Keystone Exam test administrations will be mailed home between September 16, 2013 and September 18, 2013. For more information about these assessments and the reports, please click here.
