Parent information regarding continuity of instruction:

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.

Water Bottles

Hopewell Memorial Junior High School will allow students to have water bottles in the classrooms with the following considerations:

• The container must contain water only. No juice, soda, energy drinks, etc.
• The container must have a closeable lid.
• The student will be responsible to fill the bottle between classes. A student may not leave class to fill a bottle.
• Bottles are not to be in close proximity to ANY technology whether in the classroom, lab or library.
• Water bottles are not to be played with on school grounds or on district transportation.

Any failure to follow the above will result in the student losing the privilege of having water in the classrooms.

Important Reminders to Parents/Guardians

Doors to the Junior High School open daily at 7:30 AM.

Parents/guardians dropping off students in the morning are asked to adjust schedules so as to prevent any child from being unsupervised on school grounds until the time (7:30 AM) when the doors officially open.

To prevent being marked tardy, students are expected to be in their assigned homeroom by the start of school (8:00 AM).

Any visitor to the Jr. High MUST have identification available upon entering the building. This will prevent delays with an early dismissal or during a health related emergency. Students will not be released to any individual that does not have identification available or is not noted on the emergency contact document.

Throughout the year, parents/guardians MUST contact the Jr. High office if there is a change of address, phone number or emergency contact information. Accurate, up-to-date information is essential to prevent any delays when faced with an emergency situation.

Additionally, it is never too early for families to devise a plan with their child should school be delayed, cancel or an unexpected early dismissal occurs.

All student cell phones MUST BE POWERED OFF completely before entering the Jr. High school each day. Headphones, earbuds, etc. ARE NOT to be visible at any point during the school day, except during teacher-approved in-class instructional times. Cell phones may be POWERED ON following dismissal (2:55 PM). At no time are students permitted to use their cell phone during the school day, to include contacting parents/guardians when feeling ill. When ill, students will report to the nurse. The school nurse will then contact the child’s parent/guardian. Parents/Guardians are asked to remind their child of these expectations in order to prevent disciplinary consequences that will also require parents/guardians to retrieve a confiscated device from the Jr. High Office.

Thank you for your cooperation and support of our efforts to keep all students safe and secure within the Jr. High learning environment.
