  • Plans for Uncertain Weather on Friday, January 18

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 1/16/2019 4:20:00 PM

    Friday, January 18 is a regularly scheduled early dismissal in the Hempfield School District. Given the uncertain weather forecast, we may need to come up with alternative plans for Friday. 

    • If we experience the need for a two-hour (2 hour) delay, the Early Dismissal will be cancelled. The Early Dismissal will be rescheduled at the next opportune time, and we will notify you of the rescheduled date as soon as possible after a decision has been made.
    • In the case of a school closing on Friday, the instructional day will be added, as noted, on the district calendar for the school year. The snow make-up day will be Tuesday, February 19, 2019. If school is closed, the final day of the semester will be Tuesday, January 22.
