The following is a message from Jason Watkins, Principal of E.W. Beattie:
Prior to the decision made by Governor Wolf on Friday March 13, we had put together a plan to communicate to students through their Beattie email. We will be using their Beattie email as the mode of delivery for the enrichment lessons. As most of our curriculum is hands on and competency based, this does pose unique challenges. However, through discussions with our teachers, they have come up with meaningful and creative alternatives for enrichment lessons.
Additionally, we have very little information about NOCTI testing. The written exam was to occur March 30-April 3 and the performance exam shortly following on April 29 and 30. We will send out information to our districts, students and parents as soon as it is available.

In the occasion that Kennywood does not proceed with its current operating schedule, they will be in contact with the district to reschedule our picnic date currently scheduled for June 16.
