The Jim Thorpe Area School District will be on a virtual instruction day on Friday, February 25 due to the impending storm. A virtual instruction day counts as a day of school towards the 180 day requirement, and is live instruction, with attendance taken. Students should log into their online platforms (Seesaw, Google Classroom/Meet, Schoology) on their regularly scheduled class times. Student attendance is noted in the live Instruction classes and/or when they hand in their completed assignments on the next school day.
With the inclement weather predicted on Friday of this week, JTASD will be transitioning from FID Days to "Virtual Instruction Days" in the event bad weather hits the roadways of the Jim Thorpe Community. These "Virtual Instruction Days" provide an opportunity for both asynchronous (students completing assignments on their own) learning and synchronous (live teaching with the teacher) learning, whenever possible. Please check the all call system for updates on weather related decisions later in the week.

Due to a utility odor permeating the Penn-Kidder Campus this morning, February 8, emergency personnel were called to the scene to investigate the source of the odor. The students and staff of the Penn-Kidder Campus were preparing to evacuate as a precautionary measure. The fire department has determined the source of the odor, and it has determined that the building is safe and no evacuation is needed. The district wants to thank the emergency responders for their quick actions, the staff and students for following the protocols they practiced, and to assure parents that there is no danger to their students. Staff and students will be resuming their normal school day. Thank you.
