INTRODUCTION

The Hanover Area School District, located in the scenic Wyoming Valley, is comprised of Hanover Township, and the boroughs of Warrior Run, Sugar Notch and Ashley. The School District encompasses approximately 30 square miles. The district consists of the Junior/Senior High School (grades 7-12), Memorial Elementary (grades 4, 5,6), Lee Park Elementary Center (grades 2,3), and Hanover Green Kindergarten Center (grades K,1).

CURRICULUM

Hanover Area is a comprehensive K-12 school district. The district offers basic and advanced placement courses in several subject areas. With the cooperation of the Wilkes-Barre Area Vocational-Technical School (WBAVTS), the district offers vocational training in building trades, power mechanics, food service, cosmetology and data processing. The curricular offerings at Hanover Area Jr./Sr. High School have been designed to provide a strong core of skills, enhanced by electives oriented towards personal interests and career goals. The district's goal is to prepare our students for post-secondary experiences, whether in further education, the armed forces or as a member of the work force.

TRANSPORTATION

Thirty school buses, owned and operated by Churnetski Transportation, transport elementary students who live beyond 1.5 miles, and secondary students who live beyond 2 miles. Other students may qualify for busing because they live along routes declared hazardous "by the PA Department of Transportation.

CAFETERIA - Great News for Parens/Guardians and Students

The Hanover Area School District Board of Education announces that we have qualified as of April 1, 2015 - to participate in a new state program, the “Community Eligibility Program” or “CEP”, for the remainder of this school year and also for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years.

This program, which was enacted with the “Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010” allows the school to provide one free breakfast AND one free lunch daily to all students, regardless of family income.

Students will still be required to enter the student cafeteria PIN number at the register keypad to allow for an accurate tally of meals served.

Parents may still place money on the student’s cafeteria account to pay for extra food or ALA Carte items. All current account balances will stay in the student account and will follow the student. If there is no money in the account, the student must pay cash for any additional food items. THERE WILL BE NO CHARGES ALLOWED TO ANY ACCOUNTS.

All student accounts that owe money as of March 31, 2015, must be paid in full.

Please contact Marcia Moore at (570) 825-5588 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. with any questions/concerns.
