• To access student schedules by phone in ParentVue:
    As for the schedule, here are the steps:
    1.  Click on your student's name
    2. Click on "Class Schedule". (note- it will say "Today with an arrow pointing down to the right, and it looks blank). Click on the arrow down and select "MP1" where they can see homeroom and the schedule. 
    For buses, click "Student Info" (at the same menu where "Class Schedule" was)
    At the very bottom right, click "Additional Information" 
    this gives access to Schlow Library Card number, Gender ID and Preferred Pronouns, and under all that is the bus information.
    To access student schedules on a computer, the "Student Info" shows it all without having to click "Additional Information" 
    To find your child's Team, please go to Student Info on the left hand side and scroll down to House/Team Section. There you will find the abbreviation for your child's team.

    Wanted: School Bus Drivers

    Mirroring a national trend, the State College Area School District is starting the school year in need of more school bus drivers. The shortage has prompted SCASD to eliminate five bus runs through consolidation, leading to longer travel times and late arrivals in some cases.

    Easterly Parkway International Garden

    As stillness blanketed Easterly Parkway Elementary over summer break, one corner of the school grounds still bustled with activity. Easterly families from Guatemala spent the muggy months planting and tending a vegetable garden, reviving a disused plot with the district’s blessing.
