An update on the 2019-2020 Shikellamy Middle School Yearbook:

We know many of you are anxious and excited to receive the yearbook(s) that you ordered. Please be advised that the yearbooks have not yet been shipped or delivered to SMS. However, you will still receive the yearbook(s) that you ordered; we are just not sure when they will arrive. We have been in contact with Lifetouch almost weekly. Unfortunately, Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many of the plants that produce our yearbooks were closed and the ones that have reopened are currently “running on a reduced staff to adhere to social distancing mandates necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”  As a result, delivery dates have been significantly delayed. As soon as we receive shipping confirmation, we will come up with a plan for distribution. Rest assured that they are coming...we just don’t know when.  



Call the Middle School


A message from High School Football Shikellamy Braves Football Coach Jim Keiser

Guys I hope everyone is doing well and I hope you are getting some workouts in during this time.  First I want to give you the code to get on the remind app. Send text to 81010 and then text the message @46c368.

We cannot meet until July 1 per the PIAA so keep working and sign up on the remind app.  All summer meetings and workouts will involve the entire program from 7th to 12th grade.

  • The McKinney-Vento Homeless Act guarantees a free and appropriate public education for all homeless children and youth.  Federal and state laws make the school district’s responsibility clear.

    • A student whose family becomes homeless may remain in the school he/she was attending prior to becoming homeless for the duration of the school year.

    • If it is feasible, a student may transfer to a school if it is closer to his/her transitional housing.

    • The receiving school may not prevent or delay the enrollment of a homeless child by requiring proof of residency or lack of documentation such as immunization records.  

    • Transportation for homeless must begin within 5 school days, but sooner if possible.
