Our teachers are hard at work to create a great learning experience at home for you and your child.  We understand that some families may not have internet or enough devices for all children to learn from home.

  • Any district student that needs a device at home in order to learn online, we are lending out district Chromebooks.
  • To pick up, just email TASDCOVID-19@gorockets.org or call (814) 827-2715 ext. 3400 to schedule to pick up a Chromebook.  All Chromebooks will be handed out in the lunch drive through at our Middle School.
