Welcome to the Manchester-Shortsville Central School District Recruitment Website!

We'd like to share some information about our district:

Manchester-Shortsville Central School District Known As: Red Jacket 

Our school nickname, Red Jacket, is named in honor of Native American Seneca Chief Red Jacket (1750-1830) who, in his early years as a Chief was known as Sagoyewatha (Keeper Awake). Chief Red Jacket, Chief of the Wolf Clan, was a famous orator who spoke for the rights of his people. He took his name Red Jacket for the red coat he wore that was given to him by the British for his wartime services. In 1794, Red Jacket signed the Pickering Treaty in Canandaigua, which he negotiated to help to secure Seneca territory for his people.

School Colors: Red and White
