Dear Parents and Guardians,

School has been a busy place. The 100th day of school has recently been celebrated throughout our elementary classrooms and Read Across America activities are beginning next week. Our teachers and staff have been earnestly preparing our students for the standardized tests that are scheduled to begin soon for reading, math, science, and writing. Yet despite everything presently taking place now, this is the time that we begin to prepare our students for the next school year. All middle and high school students will be choosing their courses and career pathways with their guidance counselors and teachers as they continue their road in education. Please take some time to discuss this important event with your child that they may be prepared for their future. If you have any concerns about your son or daughter’s schooling, contact the building principal, teachers, or school counselor.

Your input is welcomed and valued.

Let’s keep making good things happen!

The Shamokin Area School District is looking into refinancing a $4.5 million loan – a move that could save taxpayers money over the next 20 years.

Vulnerability Assessment Team Surveys
Please take a few moments to complete one of the following Vulnerability Assessment Team surveys, a component of our Safety Committee.  Please choose a survey based on your relationship with the school district.  You may complete multiple surveys if they apply to you (for example, you are both a staff member AND a parent with children enrolled in the school district), but please only complete each survey once. Your perception of the safety in our buildings is very important to us.  Any information received from these surveys will be shared with the Vulnerability Assessment Team and the Safety Committee during their meetings as they review building reports, identify the top five district safety issues, and develop recommendations for changes to the Comprehensive Safe School Plan.  Thank you in advance for the consideration given to participating in these surveys.


  • Shamokin Area Elementary School will be registering children for the 2017 - 2018 kindergarten program.  Children must be 5 years old by the first day of school, which is tentatively set for Tuesday, September 5, 2017.
