Upcoming Events

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. If possible, we will also send an email.

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

Re-Enrollment Information will be sent this week

It’s that time of year! Re-enrollment information packets will be sent home later this week.

Tennis Interest Meeting this Friday at 3:15 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 on Friday, January 22, 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. Experienced players (intermediate and expert level) need not attend this meeting, rather, they should contact Coach Lehman directly at codylehman@hamptonpark.org.

Open House is Jan. 26-28

Come see what’s happening here at HPCS! Open House is Tuesday-Thursday, January 26-28, from 8:45-11:00 a.m. each day. We encourage you to register online for open house so we know you’re coming. Don’t forget about our Two-Way Referral Discount – available to you when you refer a new family and they enroll by the end of Open House. Invite someone to come with you!

Volunteers Needed for Open House

With open house around the corner, we need many volunteers to staff our classroom buildings. Volunteers will serve as hosts and hostesses from 8:45-11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (Jan. 26-28). If you would like to volunteer, please contact Mrs. Emily Barney (emilybarney@hamptonpark.org) and let her know which day you can help and whether you prefer to serve in the Brown, Collins, or Main Building. Thank you!
