• Comments, Concerns, & Questions

    Office hours are 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
    The Methacton School District encourages parents and guardians to communicate with the district regarding their child or related district operations. When a question or concern occurs, the parent or guardian should attempt to resolve it at the local school level if it is about their child or through the appropriate department if it is a general inquiry or question. Any questions or concerns directed to district administration or the board shall be referred to the local level for resolution.
    If you would like to ask a question or share a concern about your child, speak to your child's teacher first. Additional contact can be made with the elementary building principal, or at the secondary level the appropriate grade level administrator, after first speaking with your child's teacher. Building principals can be reached by dialing 610-489-5000 and entering the appropriate extensions as listed below, or by e-mail as indicated.
