Juniata County School District has made a few changes this 2018-2019 school year regarding the staff. The students were forced to say goodbye to some of their teachers. Mr. Gunkle, a former history teacher, is now teaching at MiddWest. Mr. Reinhold, a former math teacher, is currently deployed but holds a position at Juniata.
