• To Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2033:

    We are so excited for your child to begin their educational journey with us this fall. While we planned to bring them into our building this spring for our Kindergarten Experience, the unexpected school closures have changed our plans. Although you will not be able to visit our buildings at this time, we still plan to host our kindergarten “Meet the Teacher” day and “Sneak-A-Peek” Days in August.

    In the meantime, we are preparing for the students to enter kindergarten in the fall, and we would like to gather some information about you and your child. Please fill out the form in one of the three ways before May 31, 2020:

    1. Click on the image below.  This will direct you to a Google form for you to be able to complete the questionnaire online:                                                                                       K Parent Questionnaire  
    2. Click on K Parent Questionnaire to print, complete, scan and send the form to either of these email addresses:  sbressi@hershey.k12.pa.us or pstoner@hershey.k12.pa.us.
    3. If you wish to US mail the questionnaire to our school, please send it to the following address:

    Hershey Early Childhood Center

    (Kindergarten Experience Information)

    P.O. Box 898, 450 Rear Homestead Road

    Hershey, PA 17033

    This information will assist us in placing your child into their kindergarten classroom and will also provide their teacher with information about them in order to provide a smooth transition to begin school next fall. Information regarding class placements will then come out at the beginning of August.

    Additionally, we will be updating our ECC website with any new information regarding kindergarten, and we encourage you to check it out throughout the summer. Here, you will find useful information like our kindergarten handbook as well as a virtual showcase of the school, which will be uploaded in the next couple of weeks.

    Please know that while we cannot physically be in the school at this time we are continuing to plan and prepare to welcome your child into kindergarten this fall, and we cannot wait for them to join our Hershey Elementary School community.

    If you have any questions please feel free to contact Lindsey Schmidt, Assistant Principal K-1, at lschmidt@hershey.k12.pa.us or 717-531-2211, ext. 6208.

    We look forward to working with you and your student.
