  • Connecting to HSD for the 2020-2021 School Year

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 6/29/2020 2:00:00 PM

    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.

  • More Community Walk & Talk Dates Added

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 6/24/2020 1:30:00 PM

    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, June 25 at 2:00 p.m.
    • Monday, June 29 at 10:30 a.m.

  • Information About the P-EBT Program

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 6/24/2020 11:45:00 AM

    The Food Service Office has received calls with regards to Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) Supplemental Payments. The P-EBT program will provide additional funding for families of children who normally receive free or reduced-price meals at school through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Program funds will be distributed in three phases: 

    • Phase 1: The first week of June; Funds went to participants already known to the Department of Human Services (DHS) through DHS programs (like SNAP or TANF). 
    • Phase 2: Mid-June; Funds will go to National School Lunch Program (NSLP) participants who don’t use DHS programs.
    • Phase 3: Late-June; Funds will go to families that had not previously participated in the NSLP, but recently applied for and were deemed eligible for meal benefits e.g., free & reduced priced meals. 

    To learn more about P-EBT visit this link.

    Hempfield School District’s Food Service Office does not handle the P-EBT cards and/or distributing funds. This is all handled through the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services.
