See Message from the School Counselor

At the beginning of a new school year, it is important to gather pertinent information so that we follow all court orders appropriately. 

  • Please send to my attention the most current Court Order regarding custody of your child. These documents are placed in the student’s permanent file. This information is confidential and only information that is necessary for transportation and/or a child’s safety is shared with the appropriate professionals.  

If there is no Court Order, please call me at 724-443-1541 extension 3650 to advise me of the custody status of your child. Our concern is always for the safety and security of children.  

  • Information/Communications: Almost all school information is available online by registering for the “E-News” and “Community Web Portal”. E-News keeps parents current on all school events and the Community Web Portal allows parents to view progress reports (“report cards”), assessments, and bus information.  
  • To sign up, go to the “Hance Elementary homepage” scroll down on the right column under “Site Shortcuts”, and click on “E-News” and “Home Access” to register.
  • According to your legal status, you may want to ask your child’s classroom teacher to include you in his or her email list.  

Thank you for your attention to this important matter. I hope that your children have had a great start to the school year!


Best regards,
