Spring Break, April 11th-15th
Best wishes for a safe and enjoyable break to our students, staff, and families! After spending time with extended family and friends please remain as diligent as you have been in screening for Covid symptoms and keep children who are symptomatic or awaiting test results home. This simple measure has proven to be effective in controlling the spread in our schools.

"The district is excited to share our focus on the needs of each student through a multi-tiered system of support. ARP ESSER funding is allowing us the opportunity to provide training as well as staff to implement our strategic plan which bolsters the success of our students," said Superintendent Dr. Maureen Reusche.

Feeding School Kids Program
Through the new Feeding School Kids initiative, the School District of Haverford Township was awarded $19,855 from the Giant Company.
Whether rounding up their grocery purchase to the nearest dollar or converting their Choice points into a donation, our community came together to support the kids. The Giant Company was proud to match the first $250K donated by customers. The Giant Company and its customers have raised more than $1.4M to address the issue of childhood hunger throughout local public school districts in the communities they serve.
