Remote Days for Inclement Weather

January 3, 2022

Parents, Guardians & Students,

We wish all of you a Happy New Year!

It is that time of year whereby our district may find itself facing weather related disruptions. We want the community to know that the Albert Gallatin Area School District will be utilizing “remote learning” when in the past our school district would normally be closed due to weather related issues. We will not have to cancel instruction for weather related issues, water main breaks, facility problems, etc. In turn, this means the District will not have to make up days.

We will provide notification on our district website, social media platforms, and news media outlets that the Albert Gallatin Area School District will be utilizing “Remote Learning” for that particular day. On these days, all students will stay home and will log in live with their teachers starting with first period following their regular schedule. Starting log in times are as follows:

7:20 AM High School

8:20 AM Middle Schools

9:00 AM Elementary Schools

Because “remote days” represent regular school days, all students are required to log in at assigned times and complete assignments as they are given during live instruction. There will be no recordings or extended time beyond the school day for completion. It is important that students take their Chromebooks home each day in the event a “remote day” is called.

Some days may only require a delayed start (typically a 2-hour delay). All students will report to their school for in-person instruction and follow the school’s delay schedule.

If you have any questions, please contact your building principal or central office administration.

Stay safe and healthy!

Important Information

District's Revised Health and Safety Plan

Colonial Students, Parents and Staff:


The Albert Gallatin Area School Board revised the District’s Health and Safety Plan during a special board meeting on Friday, December 17, 2021. The revision removes making masks an option for students, staff and visitors to requiring masks while indoors for all students, staff and visitors while in any of the District’s school buildings. This includes all indoor athletic events and extra-curricular activities. Similarly, the federal public transportation masking requirement remains in effect. All students, staff and bus drivers are required to wear masks while on district transportation.


The revised Health and Safety Plan is effective immediately. The AGASD Board of Directors will review and make any revisions to the Health and Safety Plan at the next regularly scheduled board meeting on January 19, 2022.


We are respectful of the varying opinions on masking and grateful to the number of parents, students, staff and community members that have voiced their opinions on this topic. As positive cases continue to rise, the requirement to wear a mask while indoors has greatly reduced the number of students quarantining due to the fact that when all students are masked there is no close contact under the current guidelines. As always, we appreciate your cooperation in this matter and thank you all for your continued support.


I wish all of you an enjoyable, safe and healthy Holiday Season!!





Christopher A. Pegg, Superintendent

Dear Parents/Guardians: 

Students deserve a safe environment in which to live, learn and grow. Unfortunately, the threat of violence is a concern in many communities and has grown in a number of schools across the country.  Friendship Hill Elementary School prides itself on providing a safe learning environment for our students.  

Therefore, our staff will continue to remind students of the safety procedures we have in place and our clear behavioral expectations.  Safety drills will be conducted throughout the school year.  We ask that you check your child’s book bag daily to make sure they are not bringing any unnecessary items/toys etc. to school. As always, special consideration will be given to the maturity level of our students and the sensitivity of the subject matter. 

We will conduct a STAR Drill in the month of October.  This will prepare our students and staff to respond to an intruder in the building.  Our students will be directed by their teachers before, during and after the drill.  Our teachers will speak to the students prior to the drill.  I just wanted to be sure to share this information with you so you are aware of these drills. 

As always, the safety and well-being of all students in the Albert Gallatin School District is our top priority. 

Educationally yours,  


Randy S. Wilson, Principal 


Welcome Letter for Parents

Welcome Back!

Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year at Friendship Hill Elementary.  We are excited to have all of our students back for in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 school year.   

Instruction this year will be in-person.  The first two days of school, Monday, August 30th and Tuesday, August 31st will be in-person for Kindergarten students and students that are new to our building.  All students will then report on September 1st for in-person instruction.   

The Department of Education for Pennsylvania indicates that all students should maintain a 94% attendance rate.  Therefore, students must be in school every day.  By maintaining a 94% attendance rate during the school year, data shows that students will be successful.  If your child must miss school due to illness, they must return with an excuse.  Every attempt should be made to schedule appointments after school hours. 

Student drop off will begin at 8:40 AM.  Students dismissal will begin at 3:30 PM for Parent Pick-up.   Bus dismissal will begin at 3:40 PM.   

Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher and/or me, should you have any questions or concerns.  I have included my email below for your reference.  You may also call the school’s office at 724 725-9515. 

Again, it is my pleasure to welcome you and your child to Friendship Hill Elementary this year. 



Mr. Randy Wilson, Principal
