Elementary Back To School Night

Back To School night activities were held for the District's elementary schools on Thursday September 24. Despite being given notice that picketing is not permitted on school property, once again members of the NFT violated the law by picketing at the entrances to our school buildings. On a night that is meant to foster positive parent-teacher relationships, instead many parents were forced to "walk the gauntlet" through dozens of staff members wearing picket signs and handing out literature. The NFT's proclaimed concerns about "fair" negotiating ring hollow in light of their insistence on breaking the law in order to publicize their views.

The District's final Back to School Night activities for the year will be held next Wednesday, September 30 at Neshaminy High School. Once again the Board asks the NFT to respect State law and refrain from picketing on school property.
