This school year, the District's Special Education Department is going through the cyclical monitoring process. This occurs every 6 years. Parent surveys are part of the monitoring process. If you have a child with an IEP in Sharon Schools, please go to http://apps.leaderservices.com/ParentSurvey to complete the survey. Your participation in the survey is completely anonymous and very much appreciated.
Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm at each of our elementary schools. All parent-teacher conferences must be scheduled in advance through your child's teacher. Please look for conference sign-ups from your child's homeroom teacher in the near future.
ALERT: MASKS ARE NOW REQUIRED IN ALL SCHOOL BUIDLINGS Governor Wolf announced today that masks are mandated in all Pennsylvania K-12 schools by order of the Pennsylvania Department of Health. As a result, starting tomorrow morning, the Sharon City School District will require all students, teachers and staff to wear masks when inside District buildings. Our goal is to protect our students and staff and keep our students in the classroom. Again, beginning tomorrow, all staff and students are required to wear a mask in school. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support while we navigate through this pandemic.
Dear Sharon Community my name is Bill Gathers and it is both an honor and a privilege to serve as the interim superintendent for the Sharon City School District upon the retirement of Mr. Calla. Having grown up here and being a proud graduate of SHS, this is a community that I have always held close to my heart. I thank the Sharon City School Board for entrusting me with the important role of leading our cherished school district. As the interim, my main goal is to work collaboratively, efficiently, and effectively with all the administration, faculty, and staff to continue to ensure that our students receive the very best education and to provide a smooth transition as the School Board conducts the important work of searching for a permanent superintendent. There is no doubt that the last two school years have been very challenging for all educators, students, and families as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we are anticipating returning to the classroom for the start of school on August 30, 2021 with masks being optional at this time. Although there will be no virtual component of the daily classroom, we have available an at-home cyber selection in the form of the Sharon Cyber Academy should parents wish to avail themselves of this option. Please note that either choice provides a pathway to a Sharon High School Diploma. I know that most students and parents are eager to return to school with a fresh start, however, we must continue to monitor conditions both within our state, county, and community and be ready to adjust to various mandates and recommendations from the CDC, the Department of Health, and the Commonwealth should conditions worsen. We will also be continuing the cleaning protocols, the entry monitoring, and the social distancing of 3 feet for the health and safety of all. I look forward to meeting all the faculty, staff, students, and parents in the next few months and wish everyone a successful start to the 2021-22 school year here within the Sharon City School District. William D. Gathers, Ed. D. Interim Superintendent

We need your help. There are only a few days remaining before the 2021 state budget is finalized, and despite a $3 billion surplus in state funding, we’re hearing that there is currently no plan for either a massive increase in education spending or an equity supplement for the most dramatically underfunded districts in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania’s students can’t afford to go another year without anywhere close to the resources they need to access equal educational opportunities. The most underfunded districts serve a disproportionate share of the Commonwealth’s students of color, students living in poverty, students with disabilities, and English learners. And modest increases in basic education funding to all 500 districts won’t bring these districts anywhere close to adequacy for generations. But it’s not too late. If we band together to demand relief for the districts with the fewest resources to meet their students’ needs, we can make sure lawmakers give every child in Pennsylvania a chance to succeed. That’s why we’re calling for a $100 million Level Up supplement fund to accelerate resources through the Basic Education Funding Formula to the 100 most underfunded school districts in the Commonwealth. Please take five minutes today to call Governor Wolf and your state legislators and tell them you support leveling up Pennsylvania’s most underfunded districts. Together we can make a difference for Pennsylvania’s students!

Good morning from the Sharon City School District. As we end this wild and crazy school please accept our heartfelt thank you for sharing your children with us! We also want to remind our families once again, to make sure that all District owned Chromebooks, chargers and hot spots have been returned by noon tomorrow to your child's building. If all equipment is not returned, the family will be subject to any and all costs related to their collection. Have a safe and wonderful summer!
The Sharon City School District takes great offense at the article published in this morning's edition as it seeks to sensationalize what could have been a serious situation in an attempt to sell newspapers. As our stakeholders were informed Tuesday afternoon, the Middle/High School received a threatening phone call in the afternoon. The District immediately implemented it's crisis plan and immediately involved the Sharon Police Department, as is our protocol. Thankfully, the threat was unfounded. The Herald, instead, has chosen to slant their article to insinuate that District protocols were not followed. Parents are informed as soon as accurate information is available. There were many rumors on-line and sent via phone and text in the early stages of this event and to notify families without accurate information would be unethical. In addition, as an ongoing police matter, much of the information can not be released until cleared by the investigators. Finally, to notify parents and the community before we have accurate information leads to panic and to individuals coming on to the site of the schools which can take Police and School Personnel away from the students and staff, who are our first priority in any crisis situation. I encourage the Sharon community, including businesses and individuals, to let the Herald know we demand better!
Good afternoon, This is a message from Michael Calla, Superintendent of Sharon Schools. This afternoon the Sharon Middle/High School received a phone call that threatened violence against the school. The building, along with Case Avenue, C. M. Musser and West Hill Elementary were immediately put on lock down. The Sharon Police Department responded to the threat with full force and ensured the safety of all students and staff. Both the District and Police take all such threats seriously and will continue to work with the Police Department to determine the individual or individuals who chose to threaten the schools and will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. I want to thank the Sharon Police department, the Sharon City School District administrative team and staff who handled this situation effectively and appropriately.

Case Avenue, Middle School and High School parents and guardians. Please be informed that parking at Marco's Pizza Shop is no longer permitted. As I mentioned in my post from February 22, 2021, the manager of the store had asked for cooperation when parking in the lot, using only limited spots and not allowing students to run between cars etc. Unfortunately, this has not happened, and there has since been an accident and an child injured. Therefore, beginning immediately, cars parking in the lot at drop off and dismissal will be ticketed and towed. We thank the staff at Marco's for their willingness to try and resolve this issue prior to having to make this decision.

Case Avenue, Sharon Middle and Sharon High School parents and guardians. Please note that we have been informed that the managers of the Marco's Pizza site on East State Street are having issues with a number of our students playing on site and with parents/guardians parking in their lots, blocking their business. The issues are as follows: 1. Students are playing on/around the store's dumpster. This is dangerous and when asked to stop the students have not done so. NO Student is to be on the property after school unless being picked up. Disciplinary measures will be taken for those who refuse to listen. 2. They don't mind if parents use the parking lot, they just ask that they leave the front 3 spots at the building for their customers and use only the back spots to pick up students. Parents have been known to argue or ignore when they're asked to move. This business is kind enough to make their space available at pick up time but will be notifying the police should parents/guardians refuse to cooperate with this request.

The COVID-19 relief packages recently passed by the United States Congress contain numerous benefits for families financially impacted by the pandemic. Some of these benefits are available to students who are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. Even though all Sharon students are currently receiving free meals under the current Federal waiver, if you feel your child would qualify for free or reduced-price school meals under normal school circumstances, we encourage you to submit an application (if you have not already done so) as soon as possible so you may become eligible for these new benefits. Applications are available by contacting your child's school cafeteria. this application will then be used to determine which benefits your child(ren) may be eligible for. This will not impact your child's current meal status.
