    Annual RP Enrollment Form - sharing again in case you missed it last week

    Please complete this Google form regarding your family’s plans for next year. We only need to know if you will continue to be in the RP attendance area next year and/or if you have other children who will be registering for Radio Park. Please complete this form by April 30th. Thank you!


    Picture Makeup Day - sharing again in case you missed it last week

    We wanted to let you know that the Strawbridge photographer will be back at RP on Wednesday, April 14th during the morning hours to photograph students who either missed getting their picture or who is having a retake done because the original picture was not satisfactory. If your child is having a retake picture taken, please be sure to return the entire packet to school with your child on April 14th so it can be given to the photographer in order to avoid being charged for another packet. If you would like a picture packet sent home with your child, please email your child’s teacher or call the school office at 814-231-4115. In-person students will have pictures taken from 8:15-10:30. Remote learning and Virtual Academy students who are getting pictures taken/retaken should report to school between 10:30 and 11:30.
