AMBRIDGE, PENNSYLVANIA: On Thursday, September 11, 2014 at approximately 11:30 a.m., the administration at the Ambridge Area High School received reports that a student had a gun in his car on school property.  Upon receipt of this information the high school administration notified the school resource officer as well as the Ambridge Police Department.  The high school was immediately placed on lock down.

The student in question was secured and his car was searched. An unloaded 22 revolver was found in his car. Bullets were also found in the car.

The high school administration and local authorities are conducting a full investigation into this matter. The lock down was lifted at noon. All students and faculty are safe.

 “During the lock down the staff and students were prepared to handle a critical situation such as today’s events and cooperated fully with all officials.  We resumed all normal district activities following the lift of this lockdown”, states Dr. Zurchin. 

Safety is a number one priority in the Ambridge Area School District.

Each backpack is filled with some of the most needed school supplies, ...including child-safe scissors, pencils, pens, erasers, pocket folders, spiral notebooks, crayons, washable markers, rules, glue sticks, colored pencils, pencil boxes, and index cards. The backpacks will be confidentially distributed to Highland students through the school’s social worker, teachers and nurse to students who are in need of school supplies. A “Highland High Five” goes out to the Citizens Bank Foundation and its Ambridge Branch; thank you very much Citizens Bank for helping the students of Highland Elementary.

Congratulations to the Ambridge Area High School boys' volleyball team for being chosen as a recipient of 2014 American Volleyball Coaches Association's Team Academic Award.  Only 27 boys' high school teams from across the country were selected and honored. 

For a team to be nominated, they were required to have a cumulative team grade-point average for the entire school year of at least 3.30.  Any player who played in a varsity match must be included in the team's GPA.  The Ambridge Area High School boys' volleyball team GPA was 3.47 for the school year!

Another awesome achievement from the WPIAL AA Champion and the PIAA Runner-up.  The varsity team included Anthony Baronio, Capen Brendle, Mitch Brewer, Brandon Buck, Shawn Butter, Logan Campbell, Luke Fritz, Adam Fryer, Shelton Hilliard, Derek Kuhn, Aaron Mueller, Thomas Olexsovich, Lee Smith, and Dan Zajac.

The full list of teams may be seen at the following link:
