  • News From The Hempfield Foundation

    Posted by Cheryl Irwin-Bass on 5/3/2022 10:00:00 AM

    Hello Hempfield families! The Hempfield Foundation is about to engage on a strategic planning process that we hope will guide through the next couple of years. We created a quick survey to help inform our thinking on our next strategic plan. If you would be willing to take a couple of minutes between now and May 15 to share your thoughts, we would greatly appreciate it!

     

    Also, if you like chasing a little white ball in support of a terrific cause, the annual Hempfield Foundation Golf Tournament will be held on Monday, June 27, at Conestoga Country Club. The entry fee is $100, and it includes lunch, golf, and post-round reception among other things!

     

    Finally, If you haven’t done so already, we would love to have you follow the Hempfield Foundation on Facebook and Instagram. Our goal is to get to 800+ Facebook followers (where at 600) and 165 Instagram followers (we’re at 142) by the end of the summer.

  • Message to Parents/Guardians

    Posted by Cheryl Irwin-Bass on 4/29/2022 3:00:00 PM

    The Hempfield School District administration was made aware of a serious situation that took place at the high school on Monday, April 25, after school hours. Administration was notified of a concerning social media post and photo, and later videos, of a performance that occurred during an after-school event for GSA (Gay Sexuality Alliance) Club students. Immediately following the notification, an investigation into the incident began.

    First and foremost, the administration team apologizes to students, parents, and the community on behalf of those involved in this event. We are appalled at what took place and in no way condone this type of activity in our schools. Neither the dress of the invited guests nor the performance was appropriate in our school setting. 

    We are taking the incident seriously in our ongoing investigation and follow-up actions. It is important to district administrators that the district has the trust and confidence of the community, and we realize that an incident such as this completely undermines that trust. We commit to completing a thorough investigation and holding those involved accountable, up to and including disciplinary action that is commensurate with any findings. Currently, an individual has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. Since this is a personnel issue, there will be certain information the district is unable to share with the public.

    We respectfully request that while the appropriate district personnel investigate and address this serious matter, individuals refrain from speculation and furthering currently circulating misinformation that can get in the way of a thorough and accurate investigation.  

     

    Board Statement:

    The Hempfield School Board is deeply concerned about recent allegations regarding a performance during Monday's meeting of the GSA Club.  District administration is investigating these allegations and will provide the Board with a thorough report once the investigation has concluded.  The Board will take appropriate action, as needed, based on these findings and any additional information received.

  • LPC Announcements, April 27

    Posted by Cheryl Irwin-Bass on 4/27/2022 3:00:00 PM

    THANK YOU for your generous donations towards our classroom baskets for our Basket Auction to help raise funds for the PTO. A special thank you to the tireless efforts of our PTO Board for their creativity and perseverance through continued planning to once again bring a Festival back to Landisville. We will be using a new vendor and things may look a little different, but the reason this Festival is possible is due to the tireless effort of current PTO Members, former PTO Members who remain involved, and Basket Auction Coordinators like Liz Djaraher, Carolyn Hernandez, and Stacey Gregory. Mr. Daecher and I can’t thank them enough!!! If you have an interest in potentially being a PTO Community Leader on the Board, please reach out to any Board Member. Thanks for continuing to support the Landisville PTO.

     

    THE FUN FESTIVAL IS COMING SOON!

    Our PTO Fun Festival is two weeks away and we need many, many helpers for this day to be successful. We continue to seek interested volunteers!!! The sign-up has mostly one-hour blocks, but if you could spare any extra time, feel free to sign up for a few blocks. Many hands make light work; thanks for your consideration and participation by volunteering.

    You can sign up on our main link to help:

    State Assessments Continue:

    We are proud of the effort of our third graders given their focus and perseverance on this week’s ELA assessments for the state. Next week, they will prepare to take two days of Math assessments. Once again, please make certain your child gets a good night’s sleep, a healthy breakfast, and arrives on time ready to offer their best. ***Once the testing sessions begin in each classroom, we are not permitted to allow students arriving late to take the assessment with their classmates. They would need to wait for a make-up session. Thanks for planning in advance to have your students here by the 9AM bell.

     

     

    THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR PROACTIVE PREPARATION TO HAVE YOUR LICENSE/ID READY TO DISPLAY IN THE OFFICE AND AT PICK UP TIME. ALSO, THANKS FOR HAVING CONVERSATIONS WITH YOUR CHILDREN REGARDING SAFETY AND PROPER ETIQUETTE WITH THEIR WORDS AND ACTIONS.

    With our effort to improve safety and security for all students across the entire district, we continue to seek safe practices and policies adopted by national schools rated the safest in America. Common practice for all adults picking up a child for any reason is to have their photo identification prepared to show staff whether in the office, or at the car riding line loop during dismissal. Furthermore, emotional safety is every bit as important as physical safety. Please remind your children not to use threats or gestures which can intimidate or upset others. iPads and iPhones should be used for learning and communication. They are not to be used to take photos or video of anyone as this can breach confidentiality of others and create unnecessary conflict. Thanks again for addressing these issues with your children and preparing them for success.

     

    Parents, please remember to send notes or emails to the classroom teacher and/or the office secretaries when your child is out of school to avoid unlawful/unexcused absence letters from the state when your son/daughter is out ill. If you are going on a planned trip or your child is missing a day of school for a reason other than illness, you will need to submit a pre-approved absence form.

     

    STA Bus Stacking:

    We have received several phone calls from families asking how often their child’s bus will be delayed due to double runs with our buses. Please know we have no control over this. We are thankful and grateful to work with Student Transportation of America and appreciate their flexibility to create complicated schedules that keep our student safety a top priority. Their qualified drivers continue to be flexible to adjust trip schedules to cover for vacant routes and routes unfilled by substitutes. I recently read in a supermarket a sign with the words: “The Whole World is short staffed, BE KIND to those who show up!” We are grateful and thankful for the drivers who are not only showing up but doing double time to get our students to and from school safely. Please know you will receive a robocall to the first phone number contact listed in Power School if/when your child’s bus will be delayed. You may want to edit/update your contacts and phone number to receive that message quickly if/when your child’s bus will be delayed. If you plan to change the mode of your child’s transportation from riding the bus to being a car rider, please send this communication to the classroom teacher and office secretaries at barbara_grier@hempfieldsd.org and bettylou_seitz@hempfieldsd.org to ensure one of our team members gets the message and relays it to your child/ren. Thanks for your patience, understanding, flexibility, and ongoing communication to prepare for your child’s safety and success.

     

     

    There are a few items that Mrs. Beidler is collecting for the Art room:

     - Plastic shopping bags to pack up student projects

     - Blank CDs or CDs you're looking to recycle to make a sculpture next year

    Thank you so much for sending these in with your student if you have some extras!
