District Announcements
National Merit Scholar
What do Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s; Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft; Elena Kagan, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court; Ben Bernanke, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve; and South Side senior Tyler Chiccarello have in common?  They were all named National Merit scholars during their senior years in high school.
 
The journey for Tyler began in 2013 when he took the PSAT at South Side High School.  When his results were returned, we learned he would be recognized as a student whose scores placed him in the top one percent of our nation.  Only 15,000 are chosen nationwide to be honored as a National Merit Finalist.  Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.  They must demonstrate leadership abilities, participate in school and community activities, and reflect academic honors and distinctions.  After completing a rigorous application process, Finalists are chosen for this unique award.  Congratulations Tyler!

School Delay or Cancellation
The South Side Area School District takes many factors into account before delaying or cancelling school.  Factors such as visibility, traction, temperature, wind chill and timing of a storm are often considered.  In the event of a school delay or closing, parents will receive a phone call from the One Call Now system.  Delay and cancellation information will also be posted on our district website as well as on local media sources.  (WPXI, KDKA, WTAE, Froggy Radio, WBVP)  Ultimately the safety of our students and staff is at the core of all weather related decisions.   A special thank you to South Side Garage and our townships who assist in promoting safety for all.
