Dear Reading Parents/Guardians:

It is an exciting time to be a Blue Devil! Over the summer, we demolished Reading High School and five houses along Columbia to make way for the construction of our new PK-12 school, which will open in 2019. The next two years will be challenging as we make the best of our temporary locations. We ask for your patience as we work through these situations; knowing a new state-of-the-art facility is around the corner!


Final Forms is our new online form and data management service enabling parents/guardians to complete their child’s forms online. On July 28, an email with a link and login instructions for FinalForms was sent to parent/guardians to the current email addresses we have on file. From this one link, parents will be able to manage all of their children’s forms.

If you did not receive an email link from FinalForms, please fill out the data collection form found on the homepage of our website at www.readingschools.org. This data is needed to generate the link for enrollment for your student(s).

Parking/Drop Off – High School/Middle School

  • Drop off/pick up for Reading High School students will be on Bonnell and students can enter one of the two front doors.
  • Reading Middle School students will follow the same drop-off procedure as last year. Students should be dropped off/picked up along Halker. 
  • Administrators and staff will be present during the first week to help direct traffic. Please allow extra time and be patient as we work through a new routine in a tight space.
  • During drop off and pick up, do not enter the parking lot on Halker, which is designated for staff and high school parking permit holders. Visitor parking spots will be available after 8 a.m. in this lot.
