  • HSD App To Be Replaced by Text Messaging System

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 7/22/2021 2:00:00 PM

    As previously communicated in our 2021 Spring Roundtable publication, our district has moved away from using a mobile app. You will no longer be able to find this app for download. If you had previously downloaded it, it will likely not function and should be removed from your tablet or phone.

    The app will be replaced with a text message system! This new system will require a sign-up for emergency information and critical reminders. To opt in, users will need to text the building’s keyword to subscribe. You may subscribe to as many buildings as desired and should subscribe to any building where you have a current student. Keywords will be available one per building. 

    Watch for additional information on this change including building keywords and full opt in instructions coming in August.

    About Hempfield Virtual Academy

    Hempfield Virtual Academy (HVA) is a comprehensive K-12 online learning option for families, but it is not the synchronous virtual programming offered this school year.

    At the K-6 level, HVA teachers will have students from across the district’s elementary buildings. Teachers of these classes will have only virtual students, and they will plan and teach some synchronous sessions each week.

    • Most of the student’s learning tasks will be asynchronous and include screen recordings from the teacher, assignments, small group instruction, and online collaboration opportunities.
    • K-6 classes will be grade level based and likely include a span of grades, dependent upon enrollment. For example, classes could be structured as K-1, then 2-3, and a 4-5-6 class. 


    HVA teachers will use Hempfield curriculum and assessments. Registrations for HVA for the 2021-22 school year will be accepted throughout the summer. Families must commit to a full semester in the program.

    If you have a question about our online learning program, please e-mail Brendan Cregan, Hempfield Virtual Academy Coordinator at brendan_cregan@hempfieldsd.org.

  • Immunizations Required for Attendance During the 2021-2022 School Year

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 7/13/2021 10:00:00 AM

    For the 2021-22 school year, we are asking parents/guardians to plan ahead for the following health documents and immunizations. Being prepared allows our Hempfield School District nurses to best serve our students.

    The following exams must be conducted for the listed incoming grades, as required by PA Public School Code. Printable forms can be found at https://www.hempfieldsd.org/healthservices

     

    Certain immunizations are also required for all children attending Pennsylvania schools, in accordance with PA Public School Code. The Immunization Law in Pennsylvania requires that all students have required immunizations by the first day of school unless the child has a medical or religious/philosophical exemption. All students must have at least one dose of the vaccinations listed below or risk exclusion.

    For attendance in all grades, students need the following:

    • 4 doses of tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis
    • 4 doses of polio
    • 2 doses of measles, mumps, and rubella
    • 3 doses of hepatitis B
    • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity

     

    If a child does not have all of the doses listed above, needs additional doses of the next dose, and the next dose is not medically appropriate, the child must provide an alternative medical plan within the first five days of school for obtaining the required immunizations or risk exclusion.

    In addition, the vaccines required for entrance into grades 7 and 12 are as follows:

    Grade 7 Students

    • 1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap) on the first day of 7th grade
    • 1 dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV) on the first day of 7th grade

     

    Grade 12 Students

    • 1 dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV) on the first day of 12th grade. If one dose was given at 16 years of age or older, that shall count as the twelfth grade dose.


    Please send updated immunization records with your student as soon as possible or no later than Tuesday, August 24, 2021.

    For incoming Kindergarten students, please be sure that any immunization records have been provided to the building school nurse prior to entrance in August. Private physical exam forms and dental forms can be completed and returned to the nurse as well.

    Any student who does not have the required vaccinations will receive additional personal communication. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your school office.
