PowerSchoolStarting with the 19-20 school year, PowerSchool will be Hempfield's student information system, gradebook, and special education management system. It is replacing Sapphire for all of these systems. As a result of these changes, parents will need to reestablish their portal account to access student information and reports online. Sapphire accounts will not work and are no longer available.

These codes are used to gain access to your child's information online and should only be shared with individuals who are entitled to view such information.
