Status of Activity Fee Refunds

Due to the mandated state closure of in-person school and the cancellation of district athletics and extracurricular music and dramatic performance activities, this is an update on Activity Fee Refunds. The following activities are in the process of being refunded:

  • Hempfield High School Dance Theatre 
  • Hempfield High School Indoor Guard
  • Hempfield High School Chamber Singers
  • Hempfield High School Jazz Band
  • Spring Sports


At this time, the Middle School Musical will not be refunded as advisers hope this performance may go on in the fall. This activity fee will be refunded if the performance is ultimately cancelled.

Additionally, refunds will occur for the following district activities:

  • Hempfield Preschool Program
  • FBLA state championship fees
  • Middle School musical cast photos
  • Jump-4-Minithon (elementary schools)

How will families be refunded?

  • If parents/guardians paid by check
    • At this time, HSD is returning checks that were not deposited. The district is mailing these checks to the address printed on the check.
    • For checks that were already deposited, the district will issue a refund check. These will be mailed after Wednesday, May 13.
  • If parents/guardians paid by credit card
    • All charges will be reversed on that card, if the card number is still valid. Otherwise, families will be refunded by check.
    • If a student turned in an Extracurricular Activity Fee Form, the charge has already been reversed.  
  • If parents/guardians paid by cash:
    • Families will receive a refund by check.
    • These will be mailed after Wednesday, May 13.
