9:43, 19 Sept 2008-Emergency Situation At High School
Earlier today an anonymous person called the High School office and posed a bomb threat. All of the HS students were immediately evacuated and relocated to the Middle School. The police have been notified and are currently on site. Trained canines will sweep the building in the next hour. Our first priority is the safety of our students and staff. Please do not come to the High School to pick up your student as the traffic may interfere in the police investigation. Again, the students are safe. I will update every hour to inform you of the progress of this situation.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
