05/18/2020 Community Update

May 18, 2020 

Dear Hatboro-Horsham Families, 

We hope this finds you healthy and coping with the circumstances as best you are able. We have a few reminders to share with you today. 

Families of eighth grade students, please check your email for an important request from Mr. Ewerth that went home last Friday. This relates to our planning for the grade 8 promotion ceremony. Be sure to review this time-sensitive information soon! 

We are preparing our school buildings to be used as polling places for the June 2 primary elections. While the polls will be open, we want to remind our community that anyone who is concerned about voting onsite, Pennsylvania is offering a mail-in ballot system, available to any registered Pennsylvania voter. For students and others looking to register to vote, you must do so by May 18 (today) and can find more information at voter registration. If you wish to vote by mail, you must request a mail-in ballot by May 26. For information and to request a mail-in ballot, you can visit  PA mail-in ballot request 

Students who need to apply for a working permit can do so virtually. Information is on the high school webpage and can be accessed through the “student” tab, or directly at https://www.hatboro-horsham.org/domain/825. 

HHSD Technology will be performing routine server maintenance on Saturday, May 23, 2020 from 9:00 PM until 2:00 AM.  Some systems may not be available during this time. For technology support, our help desk can be reached by sending an email to support@hatboro-horsham.org, through the web at https://hhsd.sherpadesk.com, or by phone 215-420-5600. Our technology staff take calls from 7:30-3:30, Monday through Friday, and will respond to support requests made at other times during those hours. A lot of technical issues can be resolved simply by powering down and restarting your device so please try this before reaching out to our technology team for support. 

With the arrival of nice weather, we remind you to please help to keep our community safe by remembering that under the current directive issued by the governor to stay-at-home ALL HHSD facilities, including schools, district buildings, athletic fields, stadiums, playgrounds, and properties are closed indefinitely. Our schools will be closed to students through June 16, 2020, our last student day. For the rest of the 2019-20 academic year we will deliver planned instruction online to students in their homesWhile we look forward to when we can reopen for students and for our entire community, we appreciate your staying home at this time. Our next update will be Wednesday, May 20. 

 

Thank You,
