Today is the first day of classes for students in the Mifflin County School District. Students in the Juniata County, Huntingdon and Mount Union Area, and Midd-West School Districts returned to classes prior to Labor Day. The general masking requirements in effect for Mifflin County schools are the same requirements that were in place for last school year. The only exception is students are now not required to wear face coverings during Phys Ed classes, sporting events, or outside of the school building.
To honor the 2,977 innocent lives lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks nearly 20 years ago, Senator Jake Corman (R-Bellefonte) is hosting a special “Run to Remember” community event at Bellefonte Middle School on September 11th beginning at 8:00 am. The event is open to all members of the community and will include an opening ceremony, followed by an untimed 9.11k run through the area. On-site registration is available for runners beginning at 7:00 am. The first 150 runners to register will receive a free t-shirt. Prior to the run, each participant will be given a remembrance card with information about one of the individuals who was lost in the 9/11 terrorist attacks so they can run in their honor. Volunteers are asked to RSVP by September 3rd. The RSVP page for the event is available at www.senatorcorman.com/R2R.
