Emergency Schedule Changes
Weather conditions, the loss of utilities or other emergencies may cause Hopewell Valley schools to be closed, opened late, or dismissed early. Emergency schedule changes and related information will be sent to parents and guardians via the AlertNow communication system (see below) using the contact information listed in Infinite Campus. In addition, information will be placed on the district website (www.hvrsd.org), on cable television HV-TV Channels 19 (Comcast) and 32 (Verizon), and on the district's emergency telephone system, 609.737.8449. The school district will also communicate emergency schedule changes via Facebook and Twitter.
