District News

Important Policies

  •  IDs Required for All Visitors to Main Offices as Part of Security Update

    As of the new year, the district upgraded each school's security system to continue to ensure a safe environment for all students, staff, and visitors. As part of this update, all visitors to district schools will be required to provide a driver's license or Pennsylvania ID to be scanned into the updated system. This procedure also applies to visitors whose IDs were scanned PRIOR to the update to ensure the reestablishment of these individuals in the upgraded system. Thank you for your patience and cooperation in our efforts to keep our schools safe and secure. Ithan's main office recommends parents come in at their earliest convenience to have their licenses scanned for the new system so that there are not long lines during large grade level events later in the year. THANK YOU!
