Please pay close attention to announcements because, in some cases, information may change as the situation changes. Additionally, look at the following information to tell you exactly what to do in the event of a delay or cancellation:

  1. For student drivers: If a student’s public school district is on a 2-hour delay and

Serra is on time, students should arrive when it is safe to do so (the same applies if the public school district is closed and Serra is only delayed).

  1. If students rely on busing provided by their district, they should follow the district

delay, arriving at Serra by 10 a.m.

  1. If students rely on busing provided by their district, and the district is closed,

students will be issued a Transportation Absence.

  1. Plum, Franklin Regional, Kiski, Clairton, Ringgold, and Bell Vernon are to follow Serra’s status.
  2. Any individual delayed by weather conditions resulting in late arrivals must

report to the Main Office upon arrival and sign in.

  1. Students may be required to attend classes via the internet using their

Chromebooks on days when the building is closed.  Students and Parents will be notified if this occurs.

SC Athletic Training (


There are 4 options to complete your paperwork:


  1. If you have not played a sport at Serra yet this school year, please go to the tab that says "full physical" in its title. Your physical has to have been done after June 1, 2023 to work for this school year.


  1. If you have just played soccer, football, volleyball, golf, cross country, or cheerleading and were not injured, go to the "parent-guardian recertification form" tab.No medical provider signature is needed....just a parent/guardian and a student signature.

SC Athletic Training - Parent / Guardian Recertification Form (


  1. If you played something this fall and were unfortunately sick or injured, go to the medical provider re-certification form. The medical provider that took care of you has to fill this out.(If you were injured and returned to your fall sport as per doctor's orders, then you need the "parent-guardian re-certification form" for winter.)

RaiseRight (Gift Cards)

Christmas is coming … If you are planning on purchasing gift cards for presents, consider buying them from our RaiseRight Program and earn money towards tuition.  Gift Cards have a certain percentage (i.e. Giant Eagle earns 4%, Panera earns 8%, etc.) that will go towards your child's tuition less a small administrative fee.  For questions, please contact Mrs. Carr in the main office.




To continue our tradition of excellence in athletics, we require all families of student athletes to pay an athletic fee based on how many sports are played, according to the following schedule:


One Sport: $100.00

Two Sports: $125.00

Three Sports: $150.00


Please note that this is a mandatory school fee and is in addition to any team’s booster club’s activity fee. Please submit your payment to the main office by Friday, March 1st. Please indicate on the envelope your child’s name, grade, and the sport(s) they are participating in. If you have already paid for your fall sport, you only need to pay for your winter sport. If you have yet to pay your fall sports fee, we ask that you please pay it at this time. If you have already paid this fee for the year, thank you very much and you may disregard this message. If you have any questions concerning your child’s sports fee, please contact Ms. Cassie Fedor at [email protected].
