Back-to-School Annual Notifications

Under various state and federal laws, as well as district practice, the Elizabethtown Area School District is required annually to share various notifications with parents and guardians that relate to different elements of our operations. In lieu of sending home multiple pieces of paper with your child that tally a combined total of over 40,000 pages for all our students, in addition to the countless staff hours to print the forms, we publish this handbook. Please review this information carefully as it applies directly to you and your child’s participation in our educational programs.

The Elizabethtown Area School District trusts that you appreciate its attempt to be fiscally responsible and at the same time transparent in our communication that is user friendly to our families. We feel this online system of communication accomplishes both goals. If you do not have access to the Internet and need a paper packet sent home with your children or if you have questions about a the District’s annual notifications, feel free to contact Troy Portser, Director of School and Community Information for the Elizabethtown Area School District, by phone at (717) 367-1521, ext. 10024 or by email at troy_portser@etownschools.org.
