Athletics Ticket Policy: Card and Mobile Payment Only with GoFan
Harford County Public Schools is pleased to announce that we will be using GoFan for mobile ticketing for athletic events. Fans can
purchase tickets online through your school GoFan page or by presenting a card or mobile payment option at the gate. All major credit
cards are accepted along with Apple Pay. The new ticketing policy allows schools and staff to operate a more efficient and professional
ticket gate while creating a safer and enhanced fan experience. Buying tickets allows fans to access and share tickets easily by email
or text without standing in line. Digital ticketing will also help promote social distancing while limiting person-to-person contact
and the physical exchange of cash.
Fans are encouraged to buy tickets online prior to reaching the facility. This process will also help fans know if spectator seats have
been filled prior to arriving at the facility. For your convenience, signage will be set up at the venue to help fans navigate an
online purchase quickly and easily.

There has been an increase in unaccompanied students younger than high school age
attending high school football games that
has resulted in safety and security issues and concerns. In the interest of providing a
and secure environment for all sporting event attendees, for the 2018-2019 and all
school years, we will require that elementary and middle school students be accompanied
supervised by a responsible adult for all football games. Unaccompanied children who are
younger than high school age will not be admitted to the football games. Thank you for

Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) is pleased to announce Joppatowne High School has been approved by the Department of the Army to establish a U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC) program, effective February 1, 2023. Students currently in eighth grade throughout the county will be able to apply to join JROTC at Joppatowne High. Applications will be available Tuesday, January 17, 2023, through Friday, February 10, 2023, on hcps.org and in all middle school counseling offices.
Click here to watch a Parent Academy Real Talk about JROTC in HCPS!
In May 2016, the Board of Education of Harford County approved the submission of the JROTC application and the establishment of the program at Joppatowne High School. Strong support was provided from the Military Officers Association of America; Susquehanna Chapter; and numerous local, state, and federal leaders for instituting a program at Joppatowne High. Joppatowne High was the first school in the nation to offer a high school curriculum program for Homeland Security. The Homeland Security Emergency Preparedness Program is a signature curriculum that is affiliated with internships and instruction from area colleges and civil defense agencies. JROTC is an excellent addition to the program.
Harford County is the proud home of Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG). APG is the largest employer in the county and is a critical US Army research, development, test, and evaluation installation. In 2017, APG and the surrounding community celebrated the 100th anniversary of APG as a national military garrison. This year, Harford County celebrates a 250-year anniversary. Launching the JROTC program in Harford County is a great addition and way to continue to celebrate Harford County’s legacy.

The following message is being sent to all contacts in our mass notification system via phone, email, and text message at 5:00 p.m., Thursday, December 8, 2022:
The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) approved the HCPS application to conduct asynchronous virtual instruction on up to 3 inclement weather days. HCPS staff are diligently working to prepare a “practice” of what this will look like. That practice is scheduled for the evening of Monday, January 9, 2023. Prekindergarten students will receive a bag of supplies when the bags are delivered. Students in kindergarten through grade 12 will bring their device home January 9, 2023; as part of their homework, they must log into their inclement weather tile, which will appear on Canvas, and send a confirmation message to the teacher. The HCPS curriculum offices is creating the assignment that every single student will do that will be a quick confirmation that they were able to get in.
If your school needs to adjust the systemwide asynchronous virtual instruction plan, they will reach out to your directly with additional information.
Please note, if there is a need to close HCPS for inclement weather PRIOR to January 9, we will NOT utilize virtual instruction. Following the practice on the evening of January 9, HCPS plans to conduct asynchronous virtual instruction on the first 3 closures for inclement weather.
Families can expect additional details to be available on hcps.org, including information about where to access asynchronous virtual instruction, what time it will be available, as well as a Parent Academy video with additional details. This will be available prior to the January 9, 2022 scheduled "practice."
Again, MSDE approved the HCPS application for asynchronous virtual instruction on inclement weather days and we look forward to having a very brief systemwide “practice” after school on Monday, January 9, 2023. Additional details will be made available as soon as possible.
