  • Community Meeting: Walk & Talk August 13

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 8/7/2020 9:00:00 AM

    The Hempfield Community is invited to join us for a small group discussion during this added Walk and Talk event happening on August 13, 2020 from 3:00-4:00 p.m.

    This session will begin at the Administration Building, 200 Church Street, Landisville. To maintain small group settings for robust conversations and to promote a safer gathering, you must RSVP by emailing kathy_miller@hempfieldsd.org or calling 717-898-5564. Group sizes will be limited to a total of 10 participants.

    Please come prepared to share what you believe is working well within the district, what you believe need​s to be addressed, and how we can best support our students and families. Working together, we can ensure the mission of the Hempfield School District is achieved for every student!

    The Hempfield School District Board of Directors, administration, and staff take pride in our students ​and communities that compose our district. Racism and violence in schools run counter to our mission of providing safe environments, experiences, and opportunities that inspire all students to become lifelong learners and contributing citizens in all aspects of their lives. While we strive to meet this mission in everything we do, we recognize the need for continuous growth.


    Upcoming fall dates for more Walk & Talk events will be coming soon.

    • Option #4 = Home Education: family establishes learning goals and objectives and uses a curriculum of their choosing while adhering to Department of Education parameters.

     

    We’ve also added a Frequently Asked Questions area to the following pages:

    Hempfield School District is focused on “Safely ReuKNIGHTing” for the 2020-21 school year. Click here to review information, presentations, and video recordings related to our reopening planning process.

    Deciding how your student returns to school on August 25, 2020 is a very personal decision, and we want families to make the best choice for them and their children. We ask that you consider the following questions carefully prior to submitting your responses. Please complete one student information form, linked below, for each student who will attend Hempfield School District for the 2020-21 school year.  

    Your responses will be used to develop our final plan for the 2020-21 school year. For example, we will build our busing rosters based on your response, and your student will be removed from the bus roster if you note that you will self-transport.

    Click here for the HSD 2020-21 Reopening: Student Information Form. Please complete the survey by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, August 5.

    We will continue providing updates through our normal communications channels and additional presentations will be delivered to the School Board on Tuesday, August 4 and Tuesday, August 11.

  • Connecting to HSD for the 2020-2021 School Year

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 7/27/2020 10:30:00 AM

    The re-opening of Hempfield School District is on the minds of our community. The best way to receive reliable information is by using our district communication channels. This includes:

    2020-2021 Dismissals & Delays

    Outside of our district communication channels, we contact only the television and radio stations listed here. Other stations may report Hempfield School District closings and delays but we are not responsible for providing them with information.

    In the event of an unplanned early dismissal, we will use our automated calling system to inform you of the dismissal. Phone numbers designated as emergency contacts #1 and #2 will be called, in addition to the student’s home number. Notifications will also be posted to the normal Hempfield School District communication channels.

    The Hempfield School District Board of Directors, administration, and staff take pride in our students and communities that compose our district. Racism and violence in schools run counter to our mission of providing safe environments, experiences, and opportunities that inspire all students to become lifelong learners and contributing citizens in all aspects of their lives. While we strive to meet this mission in everything we do, we recognize the need for continuous growth. 

    As a result, this summer and throughout the school year, we are inviting our entire community to join us as we walk and talk around our campuses and buildings. We will hold small group “Walk and Talk” meetings every week, at various times throughout the day. Upcoming dates are as follows:

    • Thursday, July 30 at 12:00 p.m.
    • Monday, August 3 at 1:00 p.m.
    • Wednesday, August 12 at 10:00 a.m.

     

    These sessions will begin at the Administration Building, 200 Church Street, Landisville. To maintain small group settings for robust conversations and to promote a safer gathering, you must RSVP by emailing kathy_miller@hempfieldsd.org or calling 717-898-5564. Group sizes will be limited to a total of 10 participants.

    Please come prepared to share what you believe is working well within the district, what you believe needs to be addressed, and how we can best support our students and families. Working together, we can ensure the mission of the Hempfield School District is achieved for every student!
