  • Thanks to our Homework/Study Time Program Volunteers

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 5/31/2018 11:35:00 AM

    A special thank you to our Morning Homework/Study Time Program volunteers. We are fortunate to have three to five awesome volunteers each day to work with our students. Many of the primary students reread their guided leveled books, practice spelling patterns and skills, and build sight word automaticity. Basic math facts are drilled, as time allows. Any student is welcome to catch up on homework, make up tests or work, study for tests, and more. We could not offer this morning support without you! The CES staff and students cannot say "thanks enough" to our fabulous Morning Homework Team!

  • Reminder: iPad Summer Insurance Fee Due Friday

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 5/24/2018 3:40:00 PM

    Families that would like their child to keep their iPad over the summer will be required to pay a $15 insurance fee prior to Friday, May 25. Use over the summer is completely optional and not required in any way. Students not taking their iPad home will turn them in at the end of the school year and get them back on the first day of school next year. The summer insurance fee covers up to $100 in damage occurring while school is not in session under the same terms as insurance during the school year and in the iPad Usage Agreement. Summer use is not part of Hempfield’s educational program and as a result, the Economic Hardship status waiver and optional insurance do not apply.

    Payments can be made immediately via MySchoolBucks (find under School Store> Browse All Items> 1:1 iPad Summer Insurance)

    Screenshot of My School Bucks Page and Navigation.

    You can also pay by mailing cash or check to the address below. Payments can also be made in person at the address below between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. PLEASE DO NOT SEND PAYMENTS WITH YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL. PLEASE MAKE CHECKS PAYABLE TO THE HEMPFIELD SCHOOL DISTRICT.
