Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region (BBBSCR) has launched a new “Bigs in Blue” partnership with the Derry Township Police Department and Derry Township School District. Police officers participating in the “Bigs in Blue” program spend quality time as mentors to students at Hershey Intermediate Elementary School.
The district is posting important beginning-of-the-year documents via Zippslip, a portal-based form solution that allows parents/guardians to receive and approve forms electronically. If you have a student enrolled in the district, please take a moment to sign into your ZippSlip account if you haven’t already done so this week. If you have difficulty signing in, are unable to view material, or have a general question about your account, please email Kaitlyn Keller at email@example.com.
