Hopewell High School

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:

Viking Connect

With the school year approaching, the district is ready to begin to deploy devices for our Viking Connect initiative.  This means that the district will supply a Chromebook and charger for all students in grades 3-12 and an iPad for students in grades K-2. These devices will be used for students who are attending school in the hybrid model, as well as those who will be attending our cyber program.  Our pick up plan will follow the same drive-thru set up that was used in March.  We will use the driveway at the HS with device pick up at the auditorium doors.  Parents will be asked to stay in their cars and staff will deliver your devices, with proper PPE. 

Prior to your arrival, you will need to complete several online forms including a student responsibility form, a parent responsibility form, a student acceptable use policy, a device monitoring acknowledgment, and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) form.  You will also need to pay a $25 technology fee to cover the damage or repair of your child’s device.  Families who are on free or reduced lunch will have a reduced fee of $15.  The forms and payment must be submitted prior to your device pick up.  

District staff will be checking on these items prior to distributing a device to you.  If these are not in order upon your arrival, we will ask you to pull into the HS parking lot and complete your paperwork at that time.


IMPORTANT-Devices for the Junior High and Kindergarten students at Margaret Ross are not yet scheduled for pick up.  We will notify you when these devices are ready.


Devices deployment will begin on Monday, August 17th and run through Friday, August 21st  between the hours of 9am-2pm.  Evening pick up times are also available.  Please review the assigned days below:

Monday 8/17 9 am-2 pm   High School Students Only (last names A-K)

Tuesday 8/18 9 am-2 pm  High School Students Only (last names L-Z) 

Tuesday 8/18 4pm-6 pm   Open to any families with multiple children/multi-devices

Wednesday 8/19 9-2 pm   Cyber families only (K-12)

Wednesday 8/19 4-6 pm   Open to any families with multiple children/multi-devices

Thursday 8/20 9 am-2 pm  Elementary Students Only (last names A-K)  

Thursday 8/20 4-6 pm         Open to any families not able to make their scheduled time 

Friday 8/21 9-2pm               Elementary only students (last names L-Z)


Viking Connect Devices
The District is equipped to provide uniform devices to every student so that learning can be accessed at home and at school.  While parents may have devices at home, we would encourage you to participate in the Viking Connect initiative.  Should you choose to opt out of this program, please contact your school principal.
Why opting out is discouraged:
A parent/guardian may choose to decline a 1:1 device for their child(ren) ONLY if they decide to provide a personally purchased device to their student. 

An important consideration: Should your child opt-out and choose to use a personally owned device instead, please understand that software (apps) purchased by the District may not be available or distributed to personally owned devices. Students who opt-out will not receive technical support of any kind for any personally owned devices. It will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian & student to ensure the device is working properly and effectively every day.

If you have any questions regarding the pick-up schedule, please contact Dr. Maslyk maslykj@hopewellarea.org. If there are any issues accessing the electronic forms or payment system, please contact Mr. Nelson nelsond@hopewellarea.orgTechnology Coordinator at the HS.
