It’s Time to Check on the Status of Volunteer Clearances!

If you have clearances on file to volunteer with the Hempfield School District, please check to see when your clearances are due to expire. Clearances are valid for five years from the earliest date on your three clearances. To do so, contact the building secretary where you volunteer before Monday, June 17 or contact our HR Office during the summer months.

If your clearances are due to expire between now and December 31, 2020, please plan ahead due to the expected increase in individuals requiring fingerprinting. During the next 18 months, it is estimated that roughly 500,000 people in Pennsylvania will need to be fingerprinted.
