Please see our COVID-19 Updates page for the latest news from the district.  Latest update: 3/30/2020 (Prom Information)
 

 

The Beaver County School Districts and the Career and Technology Center continue to work together as we receive guidance from our state and federal leaders. Today, Governor Wolf announced that all schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year.  Therefore, all Beaver County school facilities are closed and events cancelled through the end of the school year.  While much uncertainty still exists, this announcement will allow families to plan for their needs in the coming months.  All schools will continue to provide continuity of education and meals through the last regularly scheduled day of school.  We understand that this is heartbreaking for the Class of 2020, but please be patient as we seek additional guidance from our state leaders regarding graduation and other special events.  We appreciate your patience and support during this closure and we will continue to provide updates as we move forward together.

The breakfast and lunch pickups are still on-going at the Junior High and Independence Elementary School between 11-1 each weekday. 

 

Device Pickup Information: 

 If a Hopewell student is still in need of a device for continuity of instruction, please let your child’s teacher know.

Message from HASD Board of School Directors

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.  

 

Sincerely,

 

The Hopewell Area School District Board of School Directors

Hopewell High School has partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts Inc.) to produce our new Hopewell High School alumni directory.

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.

Safe2Say Tip Update from March 6, 2019

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. 

This information can also be found on the District’s website at www.hopewellarea.org
