Transportation

Each school day students who reside in the Hempfield School District are transported to and from school. Students are bused to the 10 Hempfield public schools and 25 non-public schools. Busing is also provided for field trips and other special programs and competitions that Hempfield students, at all levels, participate in. All Hempfield buses are equipped with radios and all have the capability of using a camera to help monitor student behavior. When using Hempfield's transportation services, please keep in mind that:

  • Students must live in Hempfield School District and be assigned to a bus by the transportation department in order to ride on a Hempfield school bus

First Student Transit is the bus contractor for Hempfield School District. They can be contacted at 717-898-0067. Anyone interested in becoming a school bus driver may contact First Student Transit directly.

Safety Reminder: Motorists are required to stop for school buses when the red school bus lights are flashing. If you approach a bus with the amber lights flashing, brake and come to a stop so that children waiting to cross the street can do so safely.

December - Distracted Driving

Are you guilty of texting or talking while driving? Research has shown that distraction from cell phone use while driving – either hand-held or hands-free – delays a driver's reactions as much as having a blood alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent. Remember that Pennsylvania law prohibits sending, reading or writing text-based communication on devices such as cell phones while driving. Visit www.JustDrivePA.com for more information.
