Updated Information:
Parent/Guardian Questions:
Hopewell's 2020-2021 school year will look very different for students, staff, parents and families. We know that families are needing to make decisions regarding child care, health and safety of family members, and what is in the best interest of each child.
With so much unknown and new, please use this form to send the District questions. The administrative team will respond as soon as possible. We will try our very best to provide you any available information that can assist you in your decision-making.
We will collect some of these questions and responses in order to create a FAQ for parents that will be posted on the website.
Hopewell's Health and Safety Plan
This Plan was approved by the School Board on August 10, 2020, and sent to the Pennsylvania Department of Education for approval.  Please reference this for the most current school reopening plans:
