  • Pre-K Counts by Owl Hill Learning Academy Expansion

    Posted by Brooke Fisher on 9/19/2023 10:00:00 AM

    The Pre-K Counts program, operated by Owl Hill Learning Academy, at Hempfield School District has expanded by adding a second classroom at Landisville Intermediate Center (LIC). This expansion was made possible by increased funding awarded by the Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) for the 2023-24 school year. Pre-K Counts is a free full-day Pre-K option for income-eligible families with 3 and 4-year-olds living in the Hempfield School District. 

    Each classroom is staffed with certified teachers and CDA-certified teaching assistants and equipped to support 20 students for full-day learning. With the hopes of filling all available seats due to this expansion, applications are currently being accepted via Google Form or will be accepted in-person from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on Friday, September 22 at LIC.

    The Pre-K Counts program was established in 2007 to provide eligible children access to high-quality, publicly funded Pre-K. The program’s goal is to reduce educational disparities among children whose families are earning up to 300% or below the federal poverty level and provide a solid foundation to prepare students for the transition to Kindergarten.

  • Spectator Expectations at Extracurricular Events

    Posted by Brooke Fisher on 9/18/2023 12:00:00 PM

    As always, we look forward to the HSD community supporting the Black Knights at home extracurricular events, including this Friday’s home “gold-out” football game vs. Manheim Township. Before you head to the spectator section of the field, stadium, court, or playing area, please be sure to sport your red & black gear and remind yourselves and your student(s) of the football-specific and league expectations below:

    football game rules

    All participating schools of the Lancaster-Lebanon League advocate that coaches, players, and spectators treat their guests with equity and respect. The following list of guidelines will be enforced; offenders will be escorted from the gym/stadium/field and barred from attending any further events for the remainder of the season/year. 

      • Only cheerleaders and others authorized by school staff are permitted on the sidelines or playing surface for the purpose of leading cheers or promoting school spirit. 
      • The Lancaster-Lebanon League encourages spectators to cheer and support their respective teams in a positive manner, but not to cheer negatively against the opponent. 
      • Spectators must stay off the playing surfaces at all times unless directed by school district staff. An exception would be to form a spirit line as the team enters the event. Students are not allowed to rush any field, court, or playing area before, during, or after a game. 
      • No sirens, whistles, portable stereos, or other noise makers, which interfere with the playing of the game, will be permitted. 
      • No hand-held banners or handheld signs of any type shall be displayed. Such articles will be confiscated by the game manager. 
      • Abusive language, negative gestures or taunting directed toward players, coaches, officials, or cheerleaders is prohibited. 
      • The throwing of paper or foreign objects onto the playing surface is prohibited.

    In the event of unacceptable behavior, the administration will use a progressive discipline system that may include: removal from that event, suspension from subsequent events (in and out of the district), school detention, school suspension, or a combination of thereof. 

    Thank you for your support. Go Black Knights!

  • Reminder: Student iPad Insurance

    Posted by Brooke Fisher on 9/6/2023 7:00:00 AM

    Student iPad insurance is available for any family that wishes to purchase it for their student(s). Insurance is $20 and covers two incidents of accidental damage as long as the iPad has not been removed from its case. Accidental damage occurring at home will otherwise be billed to the student to help cover the cost of the repair, and accidental damage occurring at school may be billed following an investigation by the Technology Department and building administration. Cracked screens continue to be the most common form of damage and can range from $20 to $75 per incident to fix.

    Insurance can be purchased via SchoolCafé in the online school store or by sending a check for $20 to the Technology Office at 220 Church Street, Landisville, PA 17538. If you are paying by check, please include the student's name, ID number, and grade level with the payment. More information is available by clicking here. Please contact the Technology Department at (717) 898-5596 if you have any questions.
