HSD Text Messaging System Now Available

As previously communicated in our 2021 Spring Roundtable publication, Hempfield School District has retired the mobile app previously used for messaging. In its place, the district has launched a new text messaging/alert notification system.

This new system requires a sign-up for emergency information and critical reminders. You may subscribe to as many buildings as desired and should subscribe to any building where you have a current student. Specific keywords/codes are required for access to each building’s messaging. To opt in, text one of the codes below to 888777:


  • HSDHHS - Hempfield High School 
  • HSDCMS - Centerville Middle School
  • HSDLMS - Landisville Middle School
  • HSDCES - Centerville Elementary School
  • HSDEPES - East Petersburg Elementary School
  • HSDFES - Farmdale Elementary School
  • HSDLIC  - Landisville Intermediate Center
  • HSDLPC - Landisville Primary Center
  • HSDMES - Mountville Elementary School
  • HSDRES - Rohrerstown Elementary School

Types of communications that may be sent out through our new text messaging system, Everbridge, include:

  • School closings, delays, or early dismissals
  • Emergency information
  • Technology or maintenance problems impacting staff and students
  • Last minute reminders or updates for building or district events


We will continue to use other district communication channels such as updates to our district website, school building web pages, automated calls, PowerSchool, Schoology, and social media, for every day/general announcements and reminders.  Read about ways you can connect with us here.
