“Research shows that many students fall more than two months behind in math over the summer, and low-income children fall behind two months in reading while middle-income kids make slight gains. Johns Hopkins University researchers recently found that 65 percent of the achievement gap between poor and more advantaged children is due to unequal summer learning experiences during elementary school years. A recent Ohio State University study shows children also gain as much weight during the summer as they do during the entire school year. The problem is worse for African-American and Hispanic kids, and for those already overweight.”

The Loyalsock Township School District is pleased to activate our new School Safety Tip Line. Students, parents and community members can provide anonymous tips to school officials via text or voicemail. All information will remain as confidential as possible. Individuals can text message or call 570-995-1TIP if concerns about bullying, drugs, alcohol or weapons are present during school or at any school event, on or off campus. Every Tip Line message is received by a school administrator and screened for urgency. As with all safety matters, we encourage everyone to respect the seriousness of this tool and to report only urgent concerns.
