Kennywood Day Rescheduled to Aug. 16

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the district’s annual Kennywood school picnic has been changed. Kennywood day was to be held May 27, 2020, but will now be held Sunday, August 16, 2020. This new picnic date also coincides with the day that the Fox Chapel Area High School Marching Band is scheduled to participate in Kennywood’s Fall Fantasy Parade.

This change was not initiated by the district, but by Kennywood Park representatives, as they are currently uncertain as to when the park will be opening.

It is important to note that Wednesday, May 27, 2020, will remain an early dismissal day for students.
