  • Fall school picture dates have CHANGED!!! 

    Due to our hybrid schedule, Fall Pics have been rescheduled to JANUARY 25-28.  If our schedule remains the same Strawbridge will send one photographer each day.  The four days allow us the flexibility to safely photograph all students,virtual and face to face.   Please keep in mind that all of these dates may not be utilized depending on how the school year goes. Updates will be given as we progress to the newly scheduled dates.

    The meals will be picked up at the back of the school near the cafeteria entrance.  Please use the Bus Service Entrance for the pick-up.
