    Grades K, 3, 6, 9, and 12

    iPads and chargers are being collected from students currently in grades K, 3, 6, 9, and 12. These iPads are being replaced over the summer and must be turned in. If you have a student in one of these grades, please know that these devices and chargers are being collected throughout this week. Apple iPads, charging blocks, charging cables and iPad cases in these grade levels must be turned in. (Students in ESY or Summer School do NOT need to turn in their iPad until the program is completed in August.)

    Grade 12 Collection: Tuesday, May 21, 7:30am-9am – PAC Lobby

    Grade 9 Collection: Wednesday, May 22 through Friday, May 24 – HHS Commons and PAC Lobby

    Students in these grade levels have the option to turn in their iPad or keep it at home for use this summer. The district will collect iPads from students who wish to turn them in for summer storage this week (May 22-May 24). Chargers should remain at home for use next school year and will NOT be collected if a student is turning in their iPad for the summer. Students who turn in the iPad for the summer will receive the iPad in their new homeroom at the start of the 2024-2025 school year.

  • Growth and Development Program

    Posted by Kelly Burkholder on 5/9/2024 8:00:00 AM

    Each spring, the Hempfield School District provides a program on growth and development for fifth grade boys and girls. The program is presented in gender-alike groups during the school day. The program uses the videos linked below.

    Always Changing and Growing Up – Boys
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XF0awGRTWs

    Always Changing and Growing Up – Girls
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gv21b3ZpSLg&t=4s

    We encourage you to view these brief videos before the school program so that you are aware of the content and can discuss with your son or daughter at home after the program.

    We understand that some parents or guardians may choose to provide this education for their child on their own. If you have a significant objection to your child participating in this program at school, please contact your child’s teacher prior to the presentation. An alternate activity will then be provided for your child during the time of the growth and development program.

    FES fifth grade students will participate in the program on Tuesday, May 14 at 11:15 a.m.

    If you have questions about the program, please contact your child’s classroom teacher or the nurse at your child’s school.
