Latest Academic Update

WE have been working hard to ensure ACCESS and OPPORTUNITY for all of our students through our device deployment and review of concepts over the past two weeks. Over 7,000 students have logged into Schoology and we are averaging around 6,500 students using Colonial devices on a daily basis. We have definitely shifted into LEADERSHIP and LEARNING. 

As of  Monday, 4/27/20, our staff will shift into delivering new content to students, which makes it more important than ever for students to make their best effort to engage with their teachers via Zoom and through Schoology. At the Elementary and Middle School levels, we are still not grading at this point. However, all of our classes at William Penn HS and Wallace Wallin will begin grading assignments for credit that will contribute to students’ final grades.

We recognize that this is a special time in the lives of our Seniors and are still working on plans for celebrating our students and modifying graduation as we cannot use the Bob Carpenter Center. Read Mrs. Brewington’s, WPHS Principal, Letter to Seniors

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or principal.
