2022-2023 Back to School Message

The following message is being sent to all contacts in our mass communication system Monday, August 8, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. 

Good evening. This is Jillian Lader, Manager of Communications for Harford County Public Schools calling to welcome you to the 2022-2023 School Year! We are excited to see most of you September 6 on the first day of school. Prek students will join us September 8. We encourage parents and guardians to visit and click the link to additional Back to School information. Links to important information like the calendar, permission forms, payment options like MySchoolBucks for school meals, GoFan for athletic event tickets, and new this year, School Cash Online for all other payments can be found on In addition, if you haven’t completed the application to determine eligibility for free and reduced-cost meals, you can find the link on the website. Eligible students may also be eligible for a free device protection plan, which covers damage to devices and chargers, and free credit bearing courses at Harford Community College. Be sure to stay tuned for information on how to download the new HCPS app this year and get notices and information directly sent through notifications on your phone! We hope you’ll follow HCPS and your individual school on social media for updates throughout the year and after you review all the Back to School information on, use our new email, for any additional information throughout the school year. We know it can be overwhelming to prepare to return to school. We’ll share systemwide information on HCPS social media channels and send more information via our mass communication system phone and email. Details on school supply lists, and any events to welcome students to each school will come from your home school so be sure to tune into school communications, too. We look forward to partnering with you and your student for a successful school year!
