Our school offices have fielded numerous questions regarding snow make-up days, so we are providing the following information as clarification.
Due to the preparations and outside presenters involved in planning professional development sessions for 500 or more faculty and staff, Friday, March 17 remains an in-service day. Students will not be in school on Friday.
Due to the recent snowstorm, the Centerville Superintendent Chat has been rescheduled to Thursday, March 30 from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the Centerville Middle School Library.
In celebration of Youth Art Month, Hempfield students presented their artwork to School Board Directors and school administrators at the Tuesday, March 7 School Board Meeting. The student artwork will be on display for the next year in the board members’ and administrators’ and offices and homes.
Please note that a letter is being sent home today with impacted students regarding Spring 2017 PSSA testing. This letter includes the following testing dates for Hempfield School District students:
Also included in the letter is important information regarding electronic devices as well as the State’s Code of Conduct for Test Takers. We ask that you please review this information with your child prior to the first testing window.
If you have any questions about the purpose, contents, or assessment process related to the PSSA testing that will occur in April and May, please contact the school principal.
Given the weather forecast for significant snow to fall Monday night into Tuesday, please begin to consider possible childcare arrangements for your student(s). In the worst case scenario, schools may be closed Tuesday and Wednesday, if high winds arrive and cause drifting, as predicted. Depending on how much snow we ultimately get, it’s possible school may be impacted on Thursday as well.
Please know that we are committed to making decisions based on the best available information at the time an inclement weather call must be made. For more information on the processes and resources utilized to help make inclement weather calls, watch this 2-Minute Talk.
Please monitor the communication channels that work best for you to learn the latest on potential changes to our school schedule.
Due to the potential for severe weather, the following events have been rescheduled to the following dates and times:
Students, families, and Hempfield School District staff members responded to the call to help those in need within the Hempfield community. Our 7th Annual Districtwide Food Drive was another great success with 6,191 pounds of food donated to the Hempfield Area Food Pantry!
Each month, more than 160 households utilize the Hempfield Area Food Pantry, many visiting on a weekly basis. In addition, the pantry operates solely by volunteers who contribute about 625 hours each month to sort, stock, and distribute food items.
Thank you to all who donated non-perishable food items during this drive! Special thanks to J.K. Mechanical for providing service vehicles to collect and transport donations from our schools to the pantry. Also, thank you to Market Street Sports Group and the Hempfield Foundation for their support and assistance in helping us to collect food donations on Friday, March 3.
Congratulations to our February Super Friends!
The March PTO meeting has been rescheduled to Tuesday, March 21 at 9:15 a.m. Join us as we plan for upcoming spring events.
