Start Of Class For Shaler High School Delayed - News Story - WPXI Pittsburgh Students in grades 11-12 will report on Wednesday, September 10 and not on Friday, September 5 for orientation.Shaler's new football coach, Coach Gordon, formerly of Penn Hills, has called for an extended pre-season football camp. So, the school district has delayed the start of school to give its football team a leg up.
Students in grades 9-10 will report on Thursday, September 11 and not on Monday, September 8 for their orientation.
The first full day for everyone at the high school is Friday, September 12.
In a letter sent home to parent Superintendent Donald Lee wrote, 'the main reason for this change isn't construction as much it is giving our custodial staff extra time to clean and our teachers extra time to unpack their stored supplies.'
Shaler won its first game. Meanwhile, Penn Hills lost its first game.
Way to go Coach Gordon. The school board in Penn Hills made a huge blunder.
