PHILADELPHIA — Due to the need for continued environmental testing at Francis Hopkinson School, students will be temporarily relocated to alternate learning spaces at nearby schools beginning on Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2020.
Students and staff in grades K through 2 will remain at the Little School House and modular on the Hopkinson campus. Students and staff in grades 3 through 5, including the AS Class, will relocate to unused classroom space at Roberto Clemente Middle School (122 W. Erie Ave.). Students and staff in grades 6 through 8, including the AS Class, will relocate to unused classroom space at Grover Washington Middle School (201 E. Olney Ave.).
There was no single relocation site nearby large enough to house the entire school community, so three alternate locations were identified.
Breakfast and lunch will still be served to students. In addition, bus transportation to and from Hopkinson will be provided for students. As a reminder, Feb. 5 through Feb. 7 are previously-scheduled half days for students throughout the District for Report Card Conferences. Buses for grades 3 through 8 will depart Hopkinson at 8:05 a.m. and return to Hopkinson starting at 12:15 p.m.
Report card conferences will be held at Hopkinson’s Little School House from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and specific details have been shared with families.
