Facility Use Requests Now Made Online

The use of paper forms to make Southern Columbia Area School District facility use requests has been eliminated with all requests now being made online, using a community facility use request software known as MasterLibrary ML Schedules. A resource page with links to ML Schedules has been created on the District's website. The page also contains videos and other helpful step-by-step instructions.

New Traffic Patterns Now in Effect

Effective with the new year, the driveway located near the District marquee will allow for two-way traffic. Because the driveway provides access directly to a State highway, the District was required to submit a Highway Occupancy Permit with PennDOT.  A goal for altering the driveway is to help improve traffic flow especially at dismissal.

Season's Greetings from SCA!
