Safely keeping our schools open for in-person learning as consistently as possible is essential for our students’ health and well-being. There will be times when we will need to temporarily shift schools to 100% virtual learning due to COVID-related staffing challenges.
Ongoing updates and full list of schools HERE. Grab-and-Go Meals HERE.

*1/19 6:30 p.m. UPDATE: At this time, no additional schools will shift to virtual learning for students today due to staffing challenges.

Austin Meehan School [8140] 2021-2022 School Plan


Meehan School Closure,

The Mayfair section of the Northeast has been expanding for many years.  All school in the region are facing overcrowding.  The School District of Philadelphia, in partnership with the City of Philadelphia and the surrounding community of the Mayfair area, is constructing a New School on Ryan Avenue to address the K-8 overflow in the neighborhood schools.  To make way for the new school, Austin Meehan Middle School will be closing down, after 50 years of dedicated service to the community.  Here are the details:
This school year Meehan will have both 7th and 8th grade.  In June the 8th grade will graduate from Meehan and go on to 9th Grade.  The 7th grade will promote to 8th grade.

Next school year (2021-2022) Meehan will only have 8th grade.  No new 7th grade students will be admitted.  In June, 2022, the 8th grade will be the last class to graduate from Meehan and go on to 9th Grade.

In the fall of 2022 Meehan will be decommissioned.

On Tuesday, October 13th, during our first School Advisory Council (SAC) Meeting we shared a presentation with parents detailing the specifics of the Austin Meehan Middle School Closure, including a map of the new elementary school boundaries for the surrounding area (slide 5 of the presentation).  Here is the link to that presentation for your review: Austin Meehan MS Closure Information.
