High School Faculty Offers Written Pledge

A newly renovated classroom (above) awaits the return of students to Pottsgrove High School

High School Faculty Offers Written PledgePOTTSTOWN PA – It isn’t quite a contract, but it’s more than just a nod of collective heads.

Pottsgrove High School faculty, administrators and staff members all individually signed a letter (at right) last Friday (Sept. 4, 2015) which takes a head-on approach in addressing some parents’ concerns that delaying the building’s opening from today (Sept. 8) until Monday (Sept. 14) will have a detrimental effect on their students’ school experience.

The opening was postponed by Pottsgrove School District administrators because contractors needed time to finish work and clean-up of items related to the high school reconstruction project. The letter, published today by Principal Dr. Bill Ziegler, pledges the wait of a few days won’t have an impact.

Its message:

“Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

“Even though this school year will start on a delayed start, we are committed to making this the best year ever for your son/daughter. We realize that students only get one year as a 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grader and it is our tireless commitment to make sure that your son/daughter is challenged academically, engaged with the school community, and cared for by our professional faculty, staff, and principal team. We look forward to welcoming your son/daughter into school, and we are excited about partnering with you to make this the best year ever for our students.

“If you have any questions or if we can support you in anyway, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

“With Pottsgrove Pride,

“Faculty, Staff, and Principal Team of Pottsgrove High School”
