School Board Meeting Information:
The next Board meeting is scheduled for June 8. Click here for more information regarding the meeting, and for instructions to join.
In lieu of the originally planned registration process, we will be posting an online form for parents of students who will need to enroll in Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year that have not yet registered. If you have a student who will be of school age to begin Kindergarten this Fall, or if you know of someone who will have a child that is ready to enroll, please check out the link below to begin the registration process. This will better assist us in communicating with those families and plan more effectively for the upcoming school year. Additional details about finalizing your child's enrollment and potential screening dates will be forthcoming. We are looking forward to meeting our littlest Vikings in the coming months. Until then, be safe and healthy! We look forward to welcoming our littlest Hopewell Vikings in August!
Dear District Resident,
As many of you are aware, over the past several months the Hopewell Area School District has been considering a proposal that would involve relocating the Fourth Grade to the Hopewell Memorial Junior High Building. The primary reason behind this proposal has been the projected size of next year's kindergarten class, as well as the projected size of the kindergarten classes in subsequent years. Based on these projections, the proposal has highlighted potential issues related to lack of classroom space and the negative impact on certain educational programs throughout the district's elementary buildings.
Recently, the Hopewell Area School District Board of School Directors has been made aware of the inaccuracy of these future class-size projections. Accordingly, a vote on the potential relocation of Fourth Grade to the Junior High Building will NOT take place during the March 9, 2020, Board Meeting. Furthermore, the Hopewell Area School District Board of School Directors will no longer consider relocating the Fourth Grade to the Junior High Building to take effect for the 2020-21 school year.
The Board will address this in more detail during the March 9, 2020 Board Meeting, scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Hopewell Memorial Junior High Cafeteria.

Hopewell High School has partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts Inc.) to produce our new Hopewell High School alumni directory. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities, and military organizations across the nation. This project will allow Alumni the opportunity to purchase an Alumni directory to interact and reconnect with their peers and classmates. We previously produced Alumni directories in 1999 and 2009. If you receive mailings or phone calls regarding this project it is legitimate and not a hoax. A frequently asked questions document is available by clicking "MORE" below.
Last night, several of our students used the new Safe2Say Something anonymous reporting system to alert school administration and law enforcement of a potential threat made toward the Junior High on XBox. Because of our students’ willingness to report a concern using Safe2Say, law enforcement was able to address the matter very quickly with the student and family last night. As a precaution, the administration partnered with law enforcement this morning to ensure the safety of students and staff upon arrival. Police and administration also interviewed several students this morning. Law enforcement was able to confirm that the reported threat described in the Safe2Say App was not credible.
The Safe2Say Something system provides an anonymous
reporting system for students, parents, or community members. Should you
know of a student or situation that causes concern, please Say something so
that we help keep our students, schools, and community safe.
