CASD Concern Hotline
The Chambersburg Area School District is now offering a Concern Hotline for parents/guardians.
Messages can be left 24 hour a day, seven days a week, and will be returned Monday-Friday during normal business hours by a member of the CASD administration.
The hotline is NOT for emergency purposes.
Instant Notification System
School Messenger is an essential tool for notification and communication. Within minutes of emergency, school officials can use School Messenger to deliver a single, clear message to parents or guardians by way of an automated telephone message. School Messenger can also be used to notify you of school closings or delays due to inclement weather, and other major events. Information will continue to be communicated through our district web page, local radio/television stations, Twitter and Facebook.
This system will only work effectively if the contact information on file for your family is accurate. To verify your contact information, please call your child's school. To change the contact information, you must visit the school office and request a student information update form.
Important announcements pertaining to district events are available by telephone 24-hours a day.

The Chambersburg Area School District (CASD) is currently closed consistent with the Governor’s Emergency Declaration issued in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. During this mandated closure, CASD may not be able to respond to requests for public records under the Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law. The Office of Open Records (OOR) has advised that when a public entity is closed, that day is not a “business day” and does not count toward the five business days referenced in Section 901 of the RTKL, which governs the time period under which an agency must respond to a request. Consequently, CASD will process requests once it reopens. Further, unless you have an urgent need to access public records, please do not file any new RTKL requests at this time. If a submitting a request is necessary, please seek copies of records (preferably electronic) rather than in-person inspection. In-person inspection of records will not be possible during the current closure. Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time.
In compliance with Pennsylvania's Right-to-Know Law , effective January 1, 2009, the CASD adopted the following policies and established clear procedures for our community members to obtain public records of interest. If you would like to request a public record, please use the following form, or contact the open records officer listed below for assistance.
