An early dismissal is scheduled for Thursday, November 8th at 12:45 (elementary) and 1:00 (MS/HS) for conferences.  There is no school for students on Friday, November 9th.

Final Threat Update

As the investigation concludes in this morning's threat, we wanted to provide an update regarding the nature of the threat and the action taken.  A note was discovered containing a possible bomb threat and reference to a weapon.  Upon notification to the State Police, our high school administration and school police officer quickly identified the suspect and confirmed there was no imminent danger to our students, faculty, and staff.  Given the information that we had and no immediate threat, a lock-in was issued for both the middle and high school for the purpose of isolating the area and keeping our students and staff safe.  As a secondary precaution, a bomb dog was brought in to conduct a sweep.  Other details of the investigation cannot be released due to criminal charges that are pending, and we do not want to jeopardize the criminal process.  Throughout the investigation, the State Police provided direction for us to release information and actions to take, including the staggered lifting of the lock-in.  We wanted to keep our Warrior Run Community updated as best as possible and to assure that our students, faculty, and staff were safe at all times.   

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these complex situations.   

Important Update

As you know the State Police have been handling the situation here at Warrior Run.  A suspect has been identified, and the investigation continues.  While there was no imminent danger, the bomb dog has been brought in as a secondary precautionary measure for the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff.  A final message will be sent out once the State Police have completed the sweep which should be expected within the hour.  We appreciate your patience and understanding as we release information and address concerns you may have for your child.


Lock-in Lifted - Middle School

The situation at the MS/HS Complex is under control thanks to the high school administration and law enforcement.  The lock-in at the middle school has been lifted, however, the high school will remain in lock-in for a brief period of time.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.  


The Warrior Run Middle/High School is currently on lock-in for a possible threat.  Law enforcement is currently on site working on the situation. At this time, however, we believe there is no imminent danger.  Please refrain from calling the the school or coming to the school at this time. More information will be shared as it become available.  Please all WRSD staff and law enforcement to do the work that needs to be done that leads to the best possible outcome.

Safety Drills Safety Drills

Dear Parents/Guardians & Faculty/Staff:

As part of our commitment to safety and security preparedness at Warrior Run, we will be conducting a safety drill in each school later this week.  Act 44 now requires school districts to conduct a safety drill within the first 90 days of school.  This is not a new practice for Warrior Run, as our District annually conducts a number of safety drills throughout the year to ensure our students and faculty know how to respond in the event that an intruder would enter our building.  

As you may know, all of our faculty and staff were trained in the ALICE protocol prior to the start of this school year.  ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate.  Please visit the ALICE training website to learn more https://www.alicetraining.com.  We will be implementing this protocol as we conduct our drills in the coming months.

The safety drill will occur at Turbotville Elementary School tomorrow, October 17th and in our Middle/High School Complex on Friday, October 19th.  

We continually strive to provide a safe and secure learning environment for all students and staff in our school buildings.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding these drills, please feel free to contact your respective building administrator.

Blood Drive

On Wednesday December 16, 2015 Warrior Run Student Council held a semi annual blood drive and the opportunity to earn funding for scholarships!

Due to Geisinger's efficiency, Warrior Run was able to donate 65 pints of blood from 75 presenting donors, which means were able to support 3 times as many lives locally. Thank you!!
The High School Scholarship Program (HSSP) offered by the Geisinger Blood Center (GBC) focuses primarily on blood donations from a high school's community (students, faculty, staff) to support the life of local area patients.  As such, it is an opportunity for high school students as young adults to make a significant commitment with a lifetime impact for patients.  GBC recognizes this commitment by helping the high school earn funding to offer as scholarships to graduating seniors.
Our next drive is on Wednesday, March 2, 2016.

Transportation Update

Thank you for your flexibility and patience the first few days of school as we ensure all students are on the correct buses and arrive home safely.  Please note that pick-up and drop-off times are dependent on the number of stops and students assigned to the bus as well as the flow of traffic.  We recognize that many parents/guardians pick up and drop off their children while other students may stay for after school activities.  As a result, please be mindful that scheduled times may vary slightly from day to day.  Each day will undoubtedly become smoother, and pick-up / drop-off times will become more consistent.  We have had a few questions regarding Bus #1 - on a normal day, Bus #1 is scheduled to leave between 2:40-2:45pm from the elementary school and return to the middle/high school complex for a second run at approximately 3:15pm.  On Friday, August 19th, the bus left the elementary school approximately 10 minutes early causing the elementary school students to arrive at their stops early.  We are working to correct this problem for next week.  If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Business Office.

2016 Tax Bills

The 2016 real estate and per capita tax bills were mailed out by our third party vendor on July 1st.  We were made aware that taxpayers in Watsontown Borough Ward 1 & 2 received duplicate real estate tax bills.  If you feel you received a duplicate bill, please verify the bill number, parcel number, and the amount.  If all of these items are the same on both bills please disregard one of the bills and pay the other bill.  If you do not receive your per capita or real estate bills by July 7th, please contact the business office at 570-649-5138 x5007.

Warrior Run Youth in Philanthropy (click for more info!)

The Warrior Run High School Youth in Philanthropy (YiP) is a group of student leaders that seeds to improve our community by promoting the art of giving, by partnering with local service organizations, and by granting money to people and programs that aim to help our community's youth.  After conducting a survey of needs in our community and analyzing the results, we are specifically trying to address needs among youth that were identified by students and adults in the Warrior Run community. Some of the top issues identified were stress, pressure to succeed and fit in, and a lack of an abundance of activities for youth in our community.  If your group or organization supports youth in our community and/or addresses any of these important issues, you are encouraged to apply. Because the Youth in Philanthropy program is funded by the Warrior Run Education Fund, all grant requests must support services provided to youth residing in the Warrior Run School District service area.

K- 4 Teachers Experiencing the Hybrid Learning Model

On January 18th, during our professional development, teachers K-4 were able to experience first-hand the hybrid learning model.  Our teachers in 1st grade at Turbotville and 3rd grade at Watsontown who are currently using the hybrid learning model were the instructors for the three stations.  Teachers were divided into three groups and spent twenty minutes in each station before rotating through all three stations.  The teachers spent time at the direct station, where the teacher led them through instruction on what hybrid learning looks like and the purpose behind it.  They also had an opportunity to work together in teams at the collaborative station to accomplish a task and take a learning survey at the independent station on iPads.  This model for learning provides our students with individualized learning and allows for differentiation for all students.  Warrior Run is looking to continue to expand this model and this experience was the first in a series related to the hybrid learning model. Warrior Run believes it is important that all teachers receive time, training, and coaching in the Hybrid model.  Those three elements are essential to the success of the expansion!

Honors English

Ninth Grade Honors English has just finished reading Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. In the novel, Miss Havisham is an eccentric old woman who is left at the alter, and literally stops time due to a broken heart. She never changes out of her wedding dress, and locks herself up in a single room, shutting out all sunlight. Miss Havisham’s wedding cake sits on a long table in the middle of this room, and rots until it is covered with cobwebs and overrun by mice.

Students were challenged to create a cake that would best represent the one described in the novel. Pictured you will see the winners who were voted to be the creators of the most realistic cake based upon the description.
