Alannah Fritchey and Leah Dangler

Congratulations to seniors Katie Ptaszynski and Brianna Bingaman for being selected to exhibit with Mr. Wagner at the 2024 “Master Grasshopper Art Exhibition” at Mansfield University, Loomis Gallery.  The exhibit had over 50 works on display showcasing both students and their teacher’s art together.  

In addition, Alannah Fritchey and Leah Dangler have a piece of art selected for permanent installation at the CSIU in Montandon.  They were able to enjoy an evening reception with parents and art faculty this week as well as a $300.00 payment each for their artwork. Leah submitted a ceramic teapot set and Alannah a fresco painting.


Student Transportation

Stopfinder is an easy to use app that will allow you to view your student’s transportation schedule from your mobile device. It works with your district’s transportation software, RoutefinderPlus, to provide you the most accurate schedule information.

Stopfinder is secure and only for registered users. The registered user, at their own discretion, may share their student’s transportation schedule by extending invitations to caregivers/family members (sub-subscribers). The Stopfinder app is available for download in the App Store as well as Google Play. An email invitation will be sent to activate your Stopfinder account.

If your child utilizes district transportation, you recently received an email from Stopfinder, an easy-to-use app that works with the district’s transportation software. If you have not already done so, please click the link from the email invitation that was already sent to you to activate your Stopfinder account and download the app.

You will be able to view your student’s transportation schedule from the app. This will eliminate the distribution of bus cards at the beginning of the school year for those that are able to download the app. Please contact the Transportation Department with any questions at 570-758-2640 ext. 6018.

Mental Health and Crisis Management

With all the conversation surrounding COVID-19, we understand that it can cause students to feel nervous and anxious. It is important to help your student manage and cope with these feelings. The following link outlines how parents can help their child(ren) during this uncertain time. 

Mental Health Resources

As a parent, you may be aware of changes in your teen’s behavior but may not know how to proceed. Crisis Clinic has put out Helpful Advice For Parents to help with communicating with your child.


Virus Prevention

The Superintendent’s Advisory Council recently met at the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit 16 for their monthly meeting.

Line Mountain Cyber School

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. Its goal is to have the educational process continue as uninterrupted as possible while the children are in homeless situations. 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.  Click Here To Read More….
