School District Eliminates Abington Heights High School Rifle Team in Pennsylvania

Friday, September 25, 2009

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

On Wednesday, September 16, the Abington Heights School District voted 4-3 to eliminate funding for the Abington Heights High School Rifle Team.

Unfortunately, the Abington Heights School District is choosing to balance the budget on the backs of tomorrow’s shooters.  Rifle teams, such as these, help foster the future of our Second Amendment freedoms, shooting sports, and safe firearms training.   

The Abington Journal even reported that coaches, team members, and parents were not given advance notice that funding for the team was in jeopardy at the school district’s meeting last week.  Because no prior notice was given, the public and the team’s members did not have the opportunity to voice their concerns and support for the program.

Please contact the Superintendent of Schools, Michael Mahon, and the School Board Directors TODAY and respectfully urge them to reconsider the decision to eliminate the Abington Heights High School Rifle Team by allowing open, public discussion on the issue.  Youth rifle teams are an American tradition that must be preserved.

Superintendent Mahon and the School Board can be reached by phone at (570) 585-8251, (570) 585-8275 or (570) 586-2511. 

To contact the Superintendent and School Board via U.S. Mail, please send correspondence to 200 East Grove Street, Clarks Summit, PA 18411.  A list of School Board members can be found below.
