Principal's Message

With the current health crisis, the high school campus is closed.  Please see my Parent Letter with important details as we move forward with online learning.


Due to the closure of school, the production of

Footloose has been postponed until further notice. 


Parking Passes

After thoroughly reviewing our parking lots, it has been determined by Administration that we are at full capacity and we can no longer issue additional parking passes for the remainder of the school year.  Parking spaces will remain open for daily guests and visitors in the gold lot. 

 The Warrior Center lot is open to the public, and students may park there if there is a need.  There is a bus that passes through at 7:15 am and it will bring students up to the campus. Students need to be standing at the shuttle sign, not at their cars. This is one of the tech buses so it will stop/pass once.  

 If there is a need for students to ride down to the Warrior Center in the afternoon, they will need to board bus #17, which is parked near the common door by Nurse’s office (Door#31) along curb, that bus will stop to let them off at the Warrior Center.  We ask that those students sit in front seats to make unloading smoother. 

 Student parking is a privilege and follows the rules in the student handbook.


Student Emergency Card

PTSD is now completing online registration for Penn-Trafford School District’s Student Emergency Information. In the past, students have been given Emergency Cards to take home and have their parents complete and then return. This new FamilyID registration process will take the place of the Emergency Cards. 

ALL Student Families MUST complete this Emergency Information Registration, using the link below.

For example, you may wish to report acts of violence, potential threats, bullying, harassment, theft, drugs, weapons, or any other dangers that may cause harm.
