    The Primary Elementary School serves children in second and third grades.  The school building was originally constructed in 1954 and renovated in 1991. Today the facility offers more than 154,000 square feet dedicated to meeting the needs of young learners. 
     
    Young children learn by doing. Learning is sequential and children must demonstrate readiness for new understandings based on their maturation and past experiences. Children acquire information and knowledge through interaction with people and objects. They are motivated to learn through their own need to make sense of the world around them.  
    The building has a card access system and offers telephone, television and intranet access in each classroom.  Other amenities include a multi-purpose room, two cafeterias/multi-purpose room, and a gymnasium with auxiliary gym space.

  • New On-Line Food Service Payment System

    In a continuing effort to provide families with great service, DTSD’s Food Services has switched to a new online pre-payment program – SchoolCafé. All current student balances have automatically transferred and the former system has been disabled. To monitor your student’s balance or to make additional payments by credit card, you’ll need a SchoolCafé account. If you haven’t set up a SchoolCafé account yet, now’s the time; it’s quick and easy! Questions may be directed to the DTSD Food Services Office at 717-531-2233 or via email

  • Safe2Say Something Reporting System Now Available

    All schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including DTSD, have adopted use of the “Safe2Say Something” anonymous tip line as a means of improving campus safety and improving school climate. The tip line is operated and monitored 24/7 by the Office of the Attorney General where tips are reviewed, classified, and forwarded to the appropriate school district. Tips that are found to contain information that may indicate a "life safety" issue are immediately forwarded to the appropriate county emergency dispatch center.
