  • 2019-20 School Year Vaccinations for Grades 7 & 12

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 5/23/2019 3:00:00 PM

    The Pennsylvania Public School Code requires certain immunizations for all children attending Pennsylvania schools, unless the child has a medical or religious/philosophical exemption. Students in all grades must have at least one dose of the vaccinations listed below by the first day of school or risk exclusion when the 2019-20 school year begins.

    • 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

    Please plan ahead! The additional vaccines required for entering into grades 7 and 12 are as follows:

    Grade 7: 

    • 1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap)
    • 1 dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV) 

    Grade 12:

    • 1 dose of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV)

    (If one dose was given at 16 years of age or older, that shall count as the twelfth-grade dose.)

    Families must provide updated immunization records no later than Thursday, August 22, which is the first day of the 2019-20 school year. 

    If your family does not have a primary-care provider, Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health Physicians welcomes new patients. Two nearby practices, Family Medicine East Petersburg and Family Medicine Twin Rose – Columbia, offer priority access for Hempfield students and their families. 

    We encourage you to avoid the back-to-school rush by making an appointment today. To schedule an appointment with Family Medicine East Petersburg, please call717-569-7011. To schedule an appointment with Family Medicine Twin Rose, please call 717-684-9106. Be sure to mention that you are the parent of a Hempfield student in need of vaccination.

  • Annual Kindergarten Bus Ride: May 21

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 5/21/2019 3:15:00 PM

    On May 21, the annual Kindergarten Bus Ride was held at Centerville Elementary. The incoming kindergarteners learned about bus safety from veteran Hempfield bus driver, Marlene, followed by a brief bus ride around the Centerville area with Principal Kramer on board. Each child went home with a new book, thanks to the generosity of the Centerville PTO.

    The CES team wishes everyone a wonderful summer! We hope to see you for Sneak-a-Peek on Tuesday, August 20 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. The first day of school for Hempfield students is August 22, 2019.
