Dear Parents and Guardians,

Athletic Cooperative Agreement Announcement:

Cornell Families:

The Cornell School District is happy to report that we have entered into a cooperative athletic agreement with our neighboring school district, Moon Area School District. Cornell will still keep fielding the teams that we currently offer, but now Cornell High School students can participate in sports at Moon not offered at Cornell. The athletic teams that this cooperative agreement covers are:

Boys and Girls Cross Country
Boys and Girls Golf
Girls Soccer
Boys and Girls Tennis
Boys Volleyball
Boys and Girls Rugby
Boys and Girls Lacrosse

If any family has any questions they can contact Coach Sacco, Cornell School District Athletic Director, at 412-264-5010 ext. 126.

Important: Any student who is interested in playing a cooperative agreement sport at Moon, must be registered online at the athletics registration website:

Sports sign-ups, and physical packets must be completed online before student-athletes can participate. Coach Sacco has physical forms as well. After registration, each student-athlete must undergo a physical exam by a doctor and have the physical form that is current for the school year turned in to the athletic office in addition to the current baseline concussion test on file in order to participate.

Cornell is excited to bring these opportunities to our students, and everyone is looking forward to this partnership!

Dr. Aaron Thomas
