The West Hempstead School District recently released a mobile app for the community to access important information such as documents, news updates and emergency notifications. 

“As a district, we are always looking for the most efficient ways to communicate with the community and district,” Superintendent Dan Rehman said. “This past year has come with a lot of changes and updates, and we hope this app will help streamline the communication moving forward.” 

The app also includes a staff directory and calendar of events and is available for download on Google Play and the Apple App Store.

West Hempstead High School honored new members of the National Tri-M Music, Art, STEM, Spanish and Italian honor societies at an induction ceremony on April 26. The school invited parents to watch virtually and Principal James DeTommaso delivered the opening remarks.    

“West Hempstead High School prides itself on providing all students with the opportunity to make a mark academically, athletically and socially,” Mr. DeTomasso said.

Each student then ascended onto the stage to collect special certificates and be acknowledged by their peers and families tuning in from home. The district commends each student for their scholarly accomplishments and this impressive recognition. 


K-6 Return to School

The district will be moving towards a return to school. We are working with transportation, facilities, food service, etc. to ensure a smooth transition. We send a start date after we have confirmed the logistics. We will use this as a case study for September.

Our current thinking is that we will all be returning in September unless otherwise directed by the Governor.

The secondary plant, grades 7-12, will remain for the balance of the year. We will be requesting information from parents, K-6, of their intent for the remainder of the year. There will be no further changes. As a reminder, there are three options which are full in, hybrid, or fully remote.

Please complete the survey that can be found below or under each schools main page. It is due Friday.
