An Important Message for Parents
08/26/2015
There are two areas that the District would like to update information in hopes to ease the concerns of our parents. First, Hempstead ISD would like to thank you for your patience as we work to meet the transportation needs of our students. As like many other school districts across the state, we are short bus drivers at the present time. Our drivers are running double routes, which is causing some students to arrive home at a later time than they normally would. We understand your concern and want you to know that we are working diligently to resolve this issue.
