Hopewell City Public Schools' Communications department's  mission is to inform the families of HCPS and public of what is going on within our school division while maintaining the highest level of integrity in all that we do for our students and staff. 

Hopewell City Public Schools wants to keep you informed and alerted to important information! We use several different ways to communicate with families and interested citizens.

SchoolMessenger: A mass notification service used by individual schools and the school system’s central office to communicate important news and information. These messages are only available to employees and student households, and they come in three forms: robocalls, emails and texts. Families are automatically signed up for emails and robocalls during registration or when back-to-school forms are submitted. During registration, families also have the option to receive text messages.

Robocalls will go to the home phone number listed for Contact 1 and Contact 2 in PowerSchool

Text messages will go to the cell phone number listed for Contact 1 and Contact 2 in PowerSchool

If you are an employee of Hopewell Public Schools, text messages are sent to the “personal cell” number 

Emails will go to the email address listed for Contact 1 and Contact 2 in PowerSchool.



SchoolMessenger app: The SchoolMessenger app allows you to set preferences and keep track of communications from the school division, specific schools and individual teachers who use SchoolMessenger. Search for “SchoolMessenger” wherever you download apps, or visit the website for information on how to sign up. Please note that the app will only work with the email address that you have on file with your school. Once you’ve created an account, you can then:

  • Review the last 30 days’ worth of messages from the school system or your student(s) schools.
  • View your contact information and set preferences for how you would like to receive notifications.
  • Receive classroom communications if your child’s teacher uses SchoolMessenger.

School websites: Each of our schools and program centers has its own website, updated by a web editor based at the school. School websites typically post updates that are intended specifically for students and families of that school. If you’re looking for your school’s website, star
