The Chicora fifth grade recently celebrated Pancake Day, inspired by the theme of their first Inspire Science module, which concentrated on matter, mixtures, and physical and chemical changes.
On Friday, November 4, 2022, an elementary teacher at Chicora Elementary found a hunting knife within the classroom. The teacher notified the principal of the situation, who then coordinated an investigation with the school police. The state police were notified and the principal, school police, and state police determined that there did not appear to be a threat to the students or staff.
Late Saturday night, were made aware of a threat to a member of our high school community. The Pennsylvania State Police were contacted and assisted in addressing the threat.
The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Our school police officers will increase patrols and are working cooperatively with local law enforcement. At this time, we will continue to operate on a normal schedule on Monday, October 24, 2022. If law enforcement feels additional actions are needed at any point, we will follow their recommendations and you will be informed.
