This Week at HHS


Principal’s Message


HHS Community,

Our students did a great job with their Keystone exams last week and with navigating our special schedules. It doesn’t seem right saying so, but this is our last week of school. Please take note that on Friday we will be dismissed at noon, and we will not be serving lunch. Families with seniors, please be sure to reference the Reminders for Seniors post that I shared this past Friday.

With this being the last week of school, it is time for us to collect iPads from our Seniors and our Freshman. iPad collection information has been shared with students via Schoology. Hempfield School District leases iPads for 3 years. Seniors do not get to keep their iPad when they graduate. Freshman must return their iPad so that they can be issued a new device that they will keep for grades 10, 11, and 12. The only exception is for students that are registered for summer school. If a student needs their device for summer school, they may keep it and turn it in at the end of summer school.

We have been informed that due to unforeseen circumstances, there will be a delay in shipping the yearbook this year. The publisher moved the printing machinery to another building, and they ran into some difficulties. The projected shipping day is between Wednesday, May 29, and June 5. All books that were ordered from Balfour online will be delivered home. It can take up to 2 weeks for all books to reach their destination. Any books ordered from Mrs. Walburn will be picked up at the school. You will receive a phone call when pick-up is available. So very sorry for the delay.

            Finally, I’d like to thank our community for helping us to Raise the Bar at HHS this year and for all that you have done to support our students. We have had a wonderful school year, and we could not have done it without you.


Thank you and have a wonderful week!
