Hello Camp Hill! A quick note to bring you up to date on the current state of the borough. • The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) remains open and fully staffed. All responders have adequate personal protection equipment with the exception of masks. We expect to receive a shipment of masks next week to remedy our short fall. • The EOC will be constructing a portable mask sanitizing station where used masks will be steam sanitized. • We are reviewing long term solutions for respiratory protection for our public works, EMS and parks and recreation departments. • All emergency equipment and the borough building, including the police department, have been fogged for sanitization. • We have secured sanitizing fluid for all playground equipment and we are ready to go when the time comes to re-open our parks. (And that time will come!) • The Kite Festival has been cancelled. • The Memorial Day Parade has been cancelled. • The pool will not open on Memorial Day weekend. We are being fluid (pun intended) about the opening date with regard to orders from Gov. Wolf. • The Borough of Camp Hill has not made a decision regarding summer camps. If the Borough can open our summer camps, we will do so by rolling, weekly basis dependent on federal and state guidelines. The parks and recreation director is working on ways to keep children and their families safe if the camps are able to be held. The public’s safety is the most important thing during this time and all points involving camps are being explored at this time. • Due to the long lines at the compost facility, we have extended the hours in order to allow for better social distancing. New hours are: o Monday, Wednesday, Friday 7:30am-3:00pm o Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday 7:30am-7:00pm o Sunday Closed • If you need an access card, please complete the registration form, located on our website, mail it to the borough and a card will be mailed to you. • Council will have a virtual public meeting on April 29, 2020 at 7pm. If you would like to “attend” please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the meeting ID and password. Most likely our regularly scheduled monthly meeting on May 13, 2020 will also be virtual.

Unfortunately, we are all unable to be together for the Memorial Day Holiday due to the Corona Virus. Audrey Logar contacted me and asked me to provide some of my thoughts about Memorial Day. I have lived here virtually all of my life and I would like to share some of my personal memories. As I consider all of the experiences during my lifetime in Camp Hill, I thought of what Camp Hill and Memorial Day have meant to me and my family. Camp Hill has celebrated Memorial Day for over a hundred years. I thought of our Camp Hill Cemetery which has veterans buried there going back to and including The Revolutionary War. Our beloved borough has always had many men and women willing to answer the call to serve our country. On a personal level, as a small boy during World War II, I had a cousin from Camp Hill who enlisted in The Army Air Corps who became a commissioned officer serving as a navigator and bombardier and was a combat veteran in Europe. When he came back from the war he looked like he had aged twenty years. He never really talked much about his wartime service. Sometimes we had veterans who had seen a lot of combat during the wartime who really didn't want to talk very much about it. In World War I we had another family member who was an Army Captain and Ambulance Company Commander in Europe in Combat. He and other veterans in Camp Hill founded the American Legion in Paris after World War I ended. They started the Camp Hill American Legion

PUblic Works Post 43 which has existed for over 100 years. I think of one of my Legion Colleagues who is a Navy Veteran whose ship was in the Gulf of Tonkin in Viet Nam and was exposed to Agent Orange. These are examples of how some of our people, over the years, have met the call. Duty, Honor, Country - That's what it is all about - Patriotism comes in many different ways, such as service, love of country, and loyalty. I think of the Lee Greenwood song God Bless the USA and the excerpt as follows: “And I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free and I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me.” So, on Memorial Day, I will ask you to consider doing several things: Fly your American Flag all day and, at 9:30 A.M., when the Parade would normally start, say a word of thanks to all of our Veterans for their service. At 11:00 a.m., when our Memorial Day Service would normally begin, say a prayer for all of our Veterans living and dead. God Bless Them All for their service to our country and to all of us.

NATIONAL NIGHT OUT CANCELED We have appreciated your participation in Camp Hill’s National Night Out activities in previous years. National Night Out has been a great opportunity for community members to gather, visit, have some snacks and refreshments, and allow us to help promote crime prevention and personal safety. National Night Out is one of the many events which makes Camp Hill a great community!! Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 Pandemic situation we are all facing, and the uncertainty about its progression, we are cancelling the 2020 Camp Hill National Night Out. Although we hope the situation would improve enough by August 4th to hold the event, we cannot be sure of that. Public Safety is our main concern. Since the planning for National Night Out would need to start now, and this pandemic has already caused disruption and financial challenges to so many, we feel it would be best to err on the side of caution at this point in time. We certainly appreciate the support and participation in previous National Night Out events. We plan on making the 2021 National Night Out bigger and better than ever!! We hope to see you there!!

S t o r m wa t e r B I l l NEW STORMWATER PROGRAM FEE TO BE BILLED IN JULY
A stormwater program fee will appear on the sewer/trash bill for the July billing period. The stormwater fee is based on the amount of impervious area on a property. Typical residential properties will fall into Tier 2, having Impervious Area (IA) between 2500 and 5000 square feet (sf). These properties will have a fee of $10 per month. Other properties will have a smaller or larger fees based on the Tier resulting from their actual impervious area. Properties with larger amounts of IA (greater than 7500 sf of IA) will fall into Tier 4 and pay $2.90 per 1000 sf of IA. The fee is based on how much impervi-
ous area is on a property. This is more equitable than property taxes, because the program cost is connected to the amount of stormwater runoff generated by properties. Tax exempt properties will pay a fee. The average residential property would pay 40% more if the program costs was paid through property taxes. The development of a stormwater fee resulted from needed improvements to the Please remember to support your local businesses now and when the stores reopen with new guidelines for safety. We need everyone to do their part in making Camp Hill strong. Downtown events will return when we are able to gather in large groups once again.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection requires certain operating efforts be completed annually and sediment pollution be reduced by 2023 through various projects. If the Borough ignores this mandate, it will end up having to do the same work but also face a large fine.

All Storm Water Authority documents can be found on the Borough’s website in the public works section.

Clubs and Events MESSAGE FROM PENN WASTE
I am writing to inform you that, although we are still working with a depleted work force, we would like to resume yard waste and bulk item collection. We understand that there is a need for these materials to be collected and we appreciate your understanding while we worked through the difficult circumstances that led to us delaying those services for a time. We will be resuming Yard Waste collections beginning on May 2nd. The yard waste collections will follow your regularly scheduled collection schedule for May. We understand that customers may have yard waste ready to be collected, but we ask that residents hold until their next regularly scheduled collection day and place a reasonable amount of yard waste curbside. We will not be able to collect an unlimited amount of yard waste from each home, so by asking residents to place a reasonable amount curbside, it will ensure that the entire route is completed. Bulk item collection will resume on Monday, May 4th on your next regularly scheduled collection day. We will be collecting one bulk item per week per residence. We will strive to clean up any back log over the next two months. This is in order to make sure our crews are able to finish routes in a timely manner. We ask that residents bundle any excess cardboard in order to allow our crews to collect this material in an efficient manner. Thank you for your understanding during this crisis. Ed Ward, District Manager
As the rest of the state, country and world, the Camp Hill Lions Club is in "Lock Down" and unable to conduct business, as usual. However, we were fortunate to achieve several activities before this terrible virus hit. The first being our annual pancake jamboree. Once again, with the support of the community, it was a success. Once we are out of quarantine, we will be meeting and will determine what charities will receive this money. In addition, we managed to take advantage of a nice day and cleaned our assigned section of Trindle Road. It was an interesting day and the highway looked really good. As there are fewer cars on the highway, perhaps it will stay that way a bit longer. As always, we are still looking for new members and even though we are not active at this time, we would be more than happy to hear from any interested person and we will forward information regarding what we do and what we stand for. If you feel so inclined, please contact me - Jo Bailey (717) 761-8129. Please stay safe, stay well and stay home.
The Camp Hill Woman’s Club, established in 1950, is a philanthropic and social organization of women from Camp Hill and the surrounding area. Our goal is to raise money through various fundraisers to donate to local charities. In light of the pandemic, this year we gave only to local food banks: West Shore Meals on Wheels, Bethesda Missions, Saint Francis Soup Kitchen, and Downtown Daily Bread to support the meaningful and courageous work they are doing.
The Club’s only goal is to try to preserve /improve Camp Hill’s water, air, land, flora and fauna for our children & grandchildren. We are always looking for new members who share our interests in the environment and to energize our organization. Membership dues are $10 for students and $20 for adults with a maximum of $50 per family. Applications for membership can be picked up in the Recreation Office, calling 737-4548, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or at a CHEC meeting. Depending upon the coronavirus situation, our next business/breakfast meetings are scheduled for Saturdays, May 9, July 11 and October 12, 7:30 AM at the West Shore Plaza Restaurant. Come join us! As we are able, CHEC intends to continue our efforts to recycle at the Siebert Park athletic events and Little League Baseball games. We have adopted Market Street in the Borough and clean it four times a year and also clean litter in other areas of the Borough throughout the warmer weather months. In addition, we help clean out sections of the Conodoguinet Creek every 3rd Saturday, May – September. The 2020 dates are 5/16; 6/20; 7/18; 8/15; 9/19. These are all weather dependent events. Volunteers will walk upstream in a line picking up trash and getting it to the bank for municipal pick up. At the beginning of each month an event link will be sent out for you to register for that month’s event. We hope to see you at this fun filled event! Has anyone been spending extra time walking the streets of Camp Hill lately? If so, you may have noticed ivy growing up the trunks of some of our trees. English ivy is one of many non-native species introduced in the United States for its decorative appeal. Like many innocently imported species, English ivy can be invasive, damaging trees and structures with extended growth. It is best used in a controlled environment or completely removed, according to numerous internet sources, including Davey.com “A bit of ivy can look nice on a tree, and some people really love the look. Regardless, once too much ivy is growing on your tree, you should remove it. Typically, that’s when ivy is starting to grow into the tree’s canopy,” said Kevin Sheehan of Davey’s Long Island, New York office. At that point, ivy can begin to harm trees, especially English ivy since its fast growing and hard to control. Here’s why. • Trees and ivy rely on the same supply of water and nutrients. Because ivy can be more aggressive, there’s a chance your tree isn’t getting its fair share of nutrition. • Ivy growth crowds tree branches, blocking sunlight trees need to make food. • Vines can weigh a tree branch down, putting it at a higher risk of breaking in a storm. • Over time, an ivy invasion weakens a tree, making it a target for opportunistic pests. According to Davey, there are two ways to stop ivy from harming your tree: 1) cut the vines at the base, (everything above the cut will die but make sure not to pull the ivy off the trunk so you don’t damage the bark); or 2) drench it in vinegar. Either way, getting rid of the roots is the most important thing, so the vines won’t pop up again. Please visit the Borough website for more information on the Environmental Club. www.camphillborough.com For additional information or to suggest future program ideas, call Paul Garrett at 717- 514-3546 or email@example.com
Clubs and Events You are cordially invited to attend our meetings, the 2nd Tuesday of each month from September-April at the Borough Hall at 7:00 p.m. Our meetings include a guest speaker and refreshments. Be on the lookout for information on our Lasagna Dinner to be held in October at the Borough Hall, probably just for take-out this year to be safe. Visit our website www.chwclub.com and Facebook.
JUNIOR CIVIC CLUB
The activities of the Camp Hill Junior Civic Club have been halted for March and April . The Club is still planning to prepare dinner for the residents at the Ronald McDonald House on May 19. This is an event that the clubmembers have enjoyed for a few years. The Memorial Day Dash has been postponed and once a date has been confirmed, information will be made available on our site www.gfwccamphill.org. Stay Tune! The club is hoping that this will be an event that brings out many runners. Walkers are also welcome to participate. The club is always interested in having new members to participate in the various community activities of the club. Many members have found working for an evening at the Central Penn Food Bank to be a lot of fun, as well as rewarding!
The Historical Society Camp Hill’s Own “Doc” Lawton
Henry Cuthbert Lawton, born in 1872, was raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. In 1903 he received a medical degree from the Medico-Chirurgical College, signed by James M Anders of the Medical Society of Philadelphia. He had been appalled that doctors weren’t taught enough about medicines, so following medical school, he obtained his Ph.G at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. His Thesis was “Vaccine Virus”. The Prothonotary of Cumberland County signed papers on February 23, 1909 registering Henry Cuthbert Lawton as a practitioner of Medicine in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Doc Lawton had come to the U.S. in 1893, and became a naturalized citizen in 1897. He was remembered as saving many lives during
the vicious 1917-18 flu epidemic with his innovative fresh air and cleanliness techniques. It is told that he threw a shoe through a sick room window when he discovered that his instructions for “open window for fresh air” were not adhered to that his instructions for “open window for fresh air” were not adhered to. He was an early conservationist even in his personal life; for example, after boiling water for a soft-boiled egg, he made coffee with that same water. His home at 2300 Market Street, contained not only his office for patients, but a room with a pool table where the youth were always welcome. On Memorial Days, hundreds of homemade doughnuts were given to people who came to sit in his yard to watch the parade. During the school year in the 40’s and 50’s, he would visit classrooms all over town – sometimes he was invited to “lecture” on the topic of the day! We students loved his cheerful interruptions. Perhaps the most amusing detail of his sartorial splendor was the huge ever-changing colorful bow-tie that he wore. His “ties” came directly from floral arrangements left in the cemetery up the street from his home -- where he was subsequently buried in 1959 at 87 years of age. We hope he enjoyed his life as much as we did!

DIFFICULTY PAYING YOUR SEWER BILL? Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Borough has decided to waive penalties for residents who make late payments during the next billing quarter. The Borough understands that some residents may have been financially impacted by this situation and the Borough does not want to add additional fees due to late payments. Bills were mailed out April 25, 2020 and due May 25, 2020. Bills that are paid after the May 25th date will not be charged penalties. In order to receive this waiver, residents must fill out this form and mail it to the Borough office or take a picture of the filled out form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms can also be placed in the drop box outside of the Camp Hill Borough Office.

APPLICATION FOR WAIVER OF FINES & PENALTIES FOR SEWER SERVICE
Section I. Explanation of Temporary Fine and Penalty Waiver On March 6, 2020, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf declared a Disaster Emergency (the â€œDeclarationâ€?) in response to the spread of coronavirus, now known as COVID-19. In light of the temporary financial hardship presented to certain sewer customers of Camp Hill Borough, the Borough is implementing a temporary program allowing for the waiver of certain fines and penalties assessed against delinquent sewer accounts for residential property owners who apply and are approved for a waiver. By submitting this Application, the Applicant is certifying that he or she is the owner of a residential property receiving sewer service from Camp Hill Borough and that due to the Declaration is experiencing a short-term financial hardship. The Borough may in its discretion request additional information to evaluate the request including, but not limited to proof of current monthly household expenses or a recent hardship claim approved by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania or a local agency. No waiver will be granted unless or until this Application is approved in writing. Upon approval of this Application, any fines, interest, and/or other penalty assessed against the base amount of any sewer utility bill issued to the Applicant, the payment for which comes due during the period subject to the Declaration or within thirty days immediately following the date of the termination or expiration thereof, shall be waived. To be eligible for approval, the Applicant must not have had an outstanding balance of $100.00 or more on his/her account or have been more than three months delinquent on any account as of the date of the Declaration. If granted, the waiver shall not be construed as a waiver of any other charge, fine, interest, or penalty assessable by the Borough for any service period other than as expressly provided for herein. Section II. Property/Owner Information & Waiver Request Property Address: Account Number: Owner/Applicant: Mailing Address: Describe the financial hardship (e.g., loss of employment, furlough, non-essential business owner, etc.): Applicant submits this Application and certifies that he or she is experiencing a short-term financial hardship due solely to the Declaration resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Owner further certifies that he/she has read and understands this document, and has provided correct information on this Application.

CAMP HILL BOROUGH IS STRONGER TOGETHER EVEN WHEN WE ARE APART!
A Message From the Director... I hope you are all doing well as we go through this difficult time in our community and country. I miss seeing you all in our parks and at special events. Although we are unable to have our Kite Festival and Memorial Day events in May, we are working on plans for our future events. I canâ€™t wait to celebrate the Grand Opening of Schaeffer Park sometime in the near future. That is it going to be a great celebration of community! In the meantime, at least we are all giving the new grass an opportunity to grow (just trying to find something positive). We do have information about our Box Lunch Review in this newsletter as we await additional guidelines so we can enjoy it safely. We have received numerous questions about our programs and camps this summer. The last thing we want to do is cancel programs and camps. We are taking as much time as needed so we can have the most up-to-date information to make a decision on how best to serve our community and do it safely. Information will be available
on website, blackboard alert and Facebook as it becomes available. Please remember that each Newsletter covers approximately 3 months of activities and events. As with all Camp Hill Recreation programs, registration is on a first come first served basis. Please read over all registration procedures for each program carefully, so you do not miss any important deadlines. If you have any questions, concerns or ideas for new programs, please contact the recreation office by phone at (717)737-4548 or by email email@example.com. I am a one person office, so I am not always able to answer my phone when it rings. If I am not available to answer your call, please leave a detailed message and I will return your call as soon as possible (usually within one business day). Thank you,

GRAND OPENING OF SCHAEFFER PARK
We were unable to hold our Grand Opening of Schaeffer Park in March due to COVID-19. We will hold this celebration in the future, just not sure when. Information will be available on our website, through Blackboard Alert and Facebook once available.
KITE FESTIVAL AND MEMORIAL DAY EVENTS CANCELED
As we work through the impacts of COVID-19 and determine ways to recreate safely, we must make some very difficult decisions. There is nothing we would like to do more than hold our annual Kite Festival, where kids make a kite and run freely around with smiles on their faces and watch Grandpop Bubbles make bub-
bles. Additionally, we would like to hold our Memorial Day Parade and Ceremonial Festivities where we gather along our streets, in our parks, and in our cemetery to honor our veterans. It is with heavy hearts, we need to cancel both events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
THE FOUNDATION FOR ENHANCING COMMUNITIES GRANT RECEIVED
Camp Hill Recreation received a $1,072.00 donation from the Harry and Nancy Preis Siebert Park Fund of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities to be used in Siebert Park.

Our Children, Our Community, Our Future
WE Are because YOU Give… I want to thank The Lion Foundation’s board members, who volunteer their time so freely to help support programs and projects that would otherwise not be funded in our schools. Because of them, our donors and our many other volunteers and staff, we are able to have such a positive impact on our students and community. This Spring, we have several board members whose terms are ending. I would like to thank Paul Bruder, John Brosius, Jaime Novinger-Toigo, Jennifer Hoover and Sen. Mike Regan for their many hours and years of service supporting our schools. They have all brought amazing talents to our board that will be missed. I also want to thank outgoing President Jennifer Branstetter for her outstanding leadership over the past two years, and congratulate Lisa Reeves, who will be taking over the helm as The Lion Foundation’s president in May. While this Spring has been unsettling with the closure of our schools and businesses, it is in times like these that small communities can really shine. I am grateful to be part of The Lion Foundation and our Camp Hill community, and I know that whatever is asked of us, we will pull together and support each other! This is what we are all about.
Robin Jones, Executive Director
The Earl Besch Project
In 2015, the Besch family established a memorial fund to continue the legacy of Extending a Helping Hand to Our Community caring that Earl Besch had inspired. The Earl Besch Fund at The Lion Foundation provides an opportunity to help those less fortunate in our community. In 2018, various groups joined with school principals to create The Earl Besch Project, which supports our students and their families who need a helping hand through funding for food programs, school supplies and participation fees. With the recent school closures, the support of the Earl Besch Project has never been more needed and appreciated. Our community has stepped up and increased food pantry box deliveries so that the 35 area families that depend on this support will not go without needed food during this time. We want to thank all those who helped organize, donate and deliver the boxes, including the Camp Hill Little League. We especially want to thank Camp Hill schools for donating food from the cafeteria that would have otherwise expired during the school closures; the West Shore School District for partnering with Camp Hill to offer carry-out lunches to our students; Al’s of Hampden and Hershey’s Ice Cream for donations of food; and Liberti Church and Trinity Lutheran Church for their financial support of the project. You can support The Earl Besch Project in a number of ways. To make a monetary donation online, visit our website at thelionfoundation.org and click the “Donate Now” button. Be sure to identify The Earl Besch Fund in the comments box. In addition, you can donate your time or make contributions by contacting organizers at TheEarlBeschProject@gmail.com.

YOUR DONATIONS AT WORK! LET’S READ TOGETHER…
IN CASE YOU WONDERED ABOUT THE IMPACT OF YOUR DONATIONS…
In an effort to get families reading together, The Lion Foundation recently supported a grant for the One School One Book Program, where all elementary students and their families were asked to read the same book. During the month of March, each student was given a copy of The Adventures of a South Pole Pig by Chris Kurtz. It’s a fantastic book that touches on the themes of friendship, determination, dreams and adventure! The program began with school-wide assemblies, during which teachers announced the book and a dog musher visited with his dogs and sled to get the kids excited. Each day during Spirit Week, the kids wore items related to the book. Our teachers led discussions to encourage reading together. If you know elementary students, ask them about the book!
A note from a teacher… I wanted … to reiterate how grateful I am for all of the time, long hours, and dedication you put into The Lion Foundation in order to assist and support our teachers in educating our children. For me, it is difficult to ask for help because I know so many projects need funding; and unless you know the population of students that we work with, finding a list of toys as teaching materials may not have seemed like a necessity. Thank you for listening, considering, and approving our Pineapple Room sensory tools and toy grant for our students and school team. I will be placing the order this week. I PROMISE to capture and share out the joy your grant will bring to our children through videos and pictures. And as I shared with you on Saturday evening, you are always welcome to come and visit with us whenever you are free to share in the joy of play and communication with our remarkable Pineapple Room kids. With great appreciation, Stacey L. Zangle, Speech/Language Therapist K-12 Students recently cashed in on their Winter Celebration silent auction experience, spending time with 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Carricato and making pizza.
A REPORT FROM CAMP HILL ARCHERY
Over the years, The Foundation has helped support the creation of a Middle School High School Archery Club, which has held over 25 practices and competed in three tournaments. Congratulations to Kristhian Acevedo-Cuevas, who qualified for the PA State Tournament this year by shooting a 281/300.
SENIOR ATHLETIC BANNERS
DO YOU KNOW CAMP HILL ALUMNI OR STAFF MEMBERS WHO YOU WOULD LIKE TO NOMINATE FOR THE CAMP HILL ALUMNI AND STAFF WALL OF HONOR?
We replaced our Senior Athletic Banner program with yard signs featuring our senior spring athletes. We felt it was more important than ever to acknowledge these athletes, who unfortunately did not get to enjoy their last season on the playing field because of the mandatory school shutdown. The yard signs were first placed in front of the Middle/High School for two weeks, and then moved to the front yard of each senior being recognized.
Please go to thelionfoundation.org, click on the alumni page, and then the Wall of Honor page to fill out a nomination form. Nominations are due by August 31.

CAMP HILL SCHOOL DISTRICT Educational Excellence
A MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT PATRICIA S. CRAIG
Dear Community Members,
Can you picture where you were and what you were doing the afternoon of March 13, 2020? At approximately 3:00 p.m. that day Pennsylvania Superintendents received a press release from the Governor ’s office announcing the closure of all public schools due to the escalating number of cases of COVID-19. On March 13, 2020, the world of public education across the commonwealth was turned upside down. Despite the fact that many of us were anticipating some type of announcement earlier that morning, it was certainly a difficult one to read and to act upon. Prior to dismissal, an announcement was hastily made in our schools asking students and staff to take their educational resources and any personal belongings home with them. “Why?” many students and staff members asked. We could not have predicted at that time that March 13, 2020 would be the last time many of us would walk into our learning and working spaces for the remainder of the school year. The subsequent and final closure announcements were equally difficult and especially disappointing to the Class of 2020. Our hearts go out to this class who has not been able to fully participate in and enjoy the culminating milestones of senior year. I believe I can speak for our entire staff that we are mourning the daily personal interactions that are critical to the work we do ever y day for our students. Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking take on a whole new look and feel in a remote learning and working environment. We truly miss our students, our families and each other. In the days following the March 13 announcement, District staff worked diligently to successfully implement a structured remote learning plan by grade level, subject or course. On April 6, teachers began posting Learn at Home plans that can be accessed on our District website through teacher webpages. The plans offer review and enrichment activities as well as essential new learning for all of our K-12 students. Because our Learn at Home plans include the use of digital platforms and educational resources, it was critical for the District to sur vey families to determine their level of access to devices and ensure equity. After reviewing the data, we were able to schedule multiple Chromebook distribution dates from two of our buildings based on the needs assessment. Despite the challenges of implementing a new and unfamiliar model of learning within a ver y short period of time, the CHSD staff has not wavered from their ongoing commitment to doing the ver y best for our students. The bottom line is that we are all learning. Teachers and staff have embraced and ramped up their own professional learning in order to utilize effective digital tools, coupled with best practices, to ensure that our students are engaged in meaningful learning activities during this last marking period. continued on next page

A MESSAGE FROM SUPERINTENDENT PATRICIA S. CRAIG (CONT.) During this pandemic, the Camp Hill Community has come together in unprecedented ways to support each other, spread joy, and demonstrate that the sense of belonging in our community is second to none. I am confident that we are going to continue to do great things in the Camp Hill School District. I know that we will push through to the other side of this experience where we can look back at March 13, 2020 and see that we have become stronger, wiser and closer as a community. On behalf of the entire District and the Camp Hill Board of Directors, we extend our best wishes for the health of our entire community. We thank you for your continued support, for partnering with us to empower our students to achieve their full potential, and for helping us to make ever y day a great day to have Lion PRIDE!
SENIOR STRONG The announcement that Pennsylvania schools would be closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year was difficult to hear but especially for our Senior Class. In an effort to recognize the Class of 2020, High School Principal, Mark Ziegler, and Athletic Director, Sarah Fanus, coordinated a senior signs project. Yard signs were made and distributed to each student in the Class of 2020 to display at their house. Principal Mark Ziegler commented that this is a hardworking and creative group of students and this is one way that we can show our support. To view a video with details about the project, visit https://youtu.be/ceIiHlyZtrE. Yard signs were also placed near the Middle/High School along Chestnut Street for each senior athlete involved in a spring sport. In addition, Senior Spotlights were posted on the Camp Hill Athletics Twitter page (@GoCHAthletics) to recognize these students. Thank you to Sara Kaplaniak , Alison Goodwin, Haas Printing, the Lion Foundation, and the volunteers who made this project possible! To the Class of 2020, thank you for your hard work , dedication, and perseverance. We are proud of you and appreciate your contributions to the Camp Hill Community!

TECH DEPARTMENT COORDINATES CHROMEBOOK DISTRIBUTION FOR CAMP HILL STUDENTS Camp Hill School District’s small but mighty Technology Department worked diligently following the announcement of school closures in March to identify access needs for students. With the introduction of Learn at Home plans and increased use of digital platforms, it was crucial to ensure students had access to digital educational resources. The Technology Department began collecting information through parent sur veys for students in grades 6-12 and, as the school closures were extended, for students in grades K-5. Building administrative assistants helped with the process by contacting families who were not able to complete the sur vey. Following a review of the data collected from the sur veys, they scheduled dates for families to p i c k u p C h ro m e b o o k s . B y m i d - A p r i l a p p ro x i m a t e l y 1 5 0 Chromebooks were distributed to Camp Hill students. In addition to Chromebooks, the Technology Department provided information about Free/Low-Cost Internet Options for Camp Hill families which may be found at www.camphillsd.k12.pa.us under Coronavirus Updates and Resources. Thank you to the Technology Department and district staff who coordinated these efforts!
