• Report Card Distribution - Wednesday, April 15th, we distributed a paper copy of the report card to all students. The report cards continue to be available on the Home Access Center. We do so for two reasons:

    1. It is an important document that gives students and parents/guardians feedback on progress.
    2. Our current student software system does not allow us to run a report indicating how many students and parents/guardians have accessed the electronic report card, so we are not sure if this important document is being viewed in a timely fashion.

    Along with the report cards, the students received a “Report Card Verification” signature sheet. We are asking a parent/guardian to sign indicating their students’ report card has been seen. Students are required to return the “Report Card Verification” sheet by next Friday, April 24th.  Failure to return the sheet will result in a detention for the student.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Please contact me with any questions.

  • Report Card Signature Card - I want to remind you that the deadline for returning report card signature cards is Friday, April 24th. We will also accept a parent note in the event that the signature card gets lost. Students who do not return the signature card by the Friday deadline will receive a detention.

    We appreciate your support. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.

  • Cell Phones During the PSSA Exams

    This is a good time to remind everyone that cell phones are not permitted to be in testing rooms during PSSA testing. We have received this direction from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Students with cell phones may be removed from the testing room, be required to retake the test, and face disciplinary action. This is the same policy as last year. Students are advised to secure their phones in their lockers at all times during the PSSA testing.

  • Morning Drop-off Procedures - We are having some problems with our morning drop-off procedures. I am asking everyone to work together for the safety of our students. I have attached a map to help everyone understand how they should drop-off their children.

    I appreciate everyone's help with this.

    Greg Galtere, JHS West Principal 

    Morning Drop-off Procedures - Please enter through the entrance across from Boyertown Park. Drive all the way to the back parking lot, turn around and then drop your children off on the sidewalk. If your child is here for a study session, he or she can enter the building early through the 80s or 90s hallway entrance.We have a lot of traffic here in the morning during a small window of time. We appreciate everyone’s help in keeping our students safe.
