Summer Work to Limit School Access
Beginning on June 15, both K.D. Markley and Great Valley Middle School will have limited access to the public. During the summer months, only those parents with appointments made through the main offices should plan to visit either school. At Great Valley Middle School, access for scheduled visitors will be via a door down the ramp adjacent to the turf field (to the left of the building in the classroom wing). Construction projects are also scheduled at Charlestown and Sugartown Elementary schools where we will be doing partial roof replacements. Affected areas will be closed, but those schools will remain open throughout the summer. Additionally, we will be refurbishing tennis courts at the high school.
