WE are Preparing for the Safe Return to School

As a result of feedback from the work groups, permission from our school board, and to ensure a safer and smoother beginning of the school year, Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Menzer announced a change in the school calendar.  This decision DOES NOT change the previous announcement to allow Pk-8 families to select remote or face to face learning and the decision to go remote at William Penn to start the school year.

THE NEW 1st day for 10 month instructional staff will be August 24, 2020.

THE NEW 1st day for students will be September 8, 2020

While the new first day is September 8, 2020, not all students will begin at the same time.  Whether in the remote learning model or in the face to face model, a staggered start will be implemented.  Please see the schedule below to determine when your student will officially begin school. 

Students with the last name beginning with A to L
9/8/20-1st Day

Students with the last name beginning with M to Z
