Attention families: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, requires that a school with certain exceptions obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from your child’s education records. However, a school may disclose appropriately designated “directory information” without written consent, unless you have advised the school to the contrary in accordance with school district procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow schools to include information from your child’s education records in certain school publications.
Parents who wish to opt their students out of directory information releases must complete an Opt-Out Form for each of their students, and must return each form to the school at which each student is enrolled by November 6, 2023.

Limited hours and times and increased safety protocols apply.
Beginning May 11th, the District is introducing an additional mental health support for students and families. We have partnered with Uplift The Center for Grieving Children to create a mental health support helpline for students and families. We are calling the helpline, The Philly HopeLine. This service will be available Monday- Friday from 12:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday- Sunday from 12:00pm- 4:00pm. Support will be available by phone at 1-833-PHL-HOPE (1-833-745-4673) and by text at the same number. The service will allow students and families to speak with clinicians by video and by phone. If students and families call outside the window of operation, they will have the option of leaving a message and will be provided with a crisis phone number in case of an emergency. All messages will be returned the next day.
