Tennis Interest Meeting this Thursday at 3:30 p.m. in M-209

Students (ages 6-18) who are interested in beginner level tennis (and their parents) are invited to an interest meeting this Thursday, January 28, from 3:30-4:15 p.m. in room M-209. In this short meeting, Coach Lehman will discuss the opportunities there are to play tennis. Please RSVP to Coach Lehman (codylehman@hamptonpark.org) if you or your student plan to attend. Experienced players (intermediate and expert level) need not attend this meeting, rather, they should talk to Coach Lehman directly at for information.

Inclement Weather Policy

Hampton Park follows Greenville County Schools (GCS) on the first day of any cancellation, delay, or early closing due to inclement weather. After the first day of an inclement weather event, our plan may differ from GCS. We will post closings and delays on WYFF News 4, Facebook, Twitter, and our website.

In the event of an early closing, parents should pick up their children as quickly as possible.
