Please note the district will not get credit on toys, household goods, shoes and books, although Community Aid still accepts donations of these goods. All the district’s proceeds go towards our Needy Family fund. Thank You again for your support of the Line Mountain SD.
Face Coverings & Identification of COVID-19 Cases
Face covering requirements were revised from a July 28th, 2020 release by the Pennsylvania Department of Education release on Monday, August 17, 2020; which now require face coverings be worn by students. PDE approved face coverings include: disposable surgical masks, cloth mask, neck gaiters, and face shields. Detailed clarification regarding approved face coverings can be found on our web-site.
Protocol for an identified case or cases of Covid-19 can be found HERE. When referencing the protocol on our web-site it is important to know that Northumberland County is currently categorized as a moderate level of Transmission County.
The district cannot stress and encourage parents and guardians enough to follow the symptom monitor checklist everyone received last week in the mail. This checklist can be found on our web-site. Strict daily adherence to the checklist is the single most proactive step for the maximum safety of our students and community.

Superintendents representing 15 Schools in the CSIU 16 region reach out to local newspaper for help regarding Cyber School tuition rates.
Click Here for more facts when speaking to your legislatures about House Bill 526 and Senate Bill 34 regarding funding reform for Cyber Schools
Proposed House Bill (526) and Senate Bill (34) could save Line Mountain taxpayers more than a half-million dollars. A full presentation regarding the continued concerns with local tax payer funding of Cyber Schools can be found by clicking HERE. While there is nothing definitive to report currently, there has been a lot of discussion on the bills introduced by Rep. Sonney (House Bill 526) and Sen. Schwank (Senate Bill 34) that would require parents to pay that tuition if the school district of residence offers a full-time cyber program. Although there is a lot of momentum and discussion about cyber charter tuition, many don’t think either bill will make it across the finish line. Please talk to your legislators about bills introduced by Rep. Sonney and Sen. Schwank and support for those bills.
Line Mountain SD Homeless information
Pennsylvania’s Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program was established to make sure homeless youth have access to a free and appropriate public education while removing barriers that homeless children face.

Some of the other main objectives of Pennsylvania’s Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program are to inform local school districts of their responsibilities to homeless children and youth, to increase awareness about the needs of homeless children, explain current laws and policies, and provide practical tips for working with homeless children.
