Driver’s Ed Update
When the state DMV centers open, students interested in taking their permit tests are permitted to do so. However, the available stations are typically going to be cut in half to provide for proper social distancing. In short, they can give permit tests, but the lines will be long, so please be patient. Remember, you must have a physical completed (found on the back of the application) in advance of your permit test as part of the permitting process.
Behind-the-Wheel training and testing will not begin again at the High School until we go to “Green” and are able to secure the safety of students and instructors. When the district has put into place an adequate system we will notify our students and families through all available media contacts. In the meantime, if you have a student driver be sure to give them as many opportunities to practice their skills as possible. The parallel parking area behind the HS will remain open and available.
Questions should be directed to Mr. McNitt at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late. With Safe2Say Something, it’s easy and confidential to report safety concerns to help prevent violence and tragedies.
Here’s how it works:
- Submit an anonymous tip report through the Safe2SaySomething system
- Crisis center reviews, assesses and processes all submissions
- Crisis center sends all submissions to school administration and/or law enforcement for intervention
- If needed, crisis center may contact tipster anonymously through the app

ATTENTION TYRONE AREA HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS:
Official high school transcripts are no longer sent through the high school guidance office. The high school has teamed with Parchment.com to send official transcript electronically to colleges and other post-secondary institutions.
Invitations to create an account with Parchment.com were sent to all students via their .tasd email accounts. Each student has been assigned a registration code that is included in the email invitation.

If you have questions, can’t find your email invitation or need a copy of your new registration code, please call or visit the high school guidance office.
