Tulpehocken Student Art Show
The artworks shown here are from the Tulpehocken Area School District Office Art Show that was scheduled to be on display from February 21 through April 2020. Please take a few moments to see the art work and enjoy the diversity of talent demonstrated by our students at the Bethel, Penn-Bernville, and Junior-Senior High schools. We are proud of the accomplishments of our students!

Due to the stay at home order, the display remains in place and will not be taken down until the beginning of the next school year. There was a tea that was scheduled to take place in April inviting families of the students to enjoy the artwork on display, unfortunately that was cancelled and has not been rescheduled.
Also due to the stay at home order, the art shows that normally take place in April and May have been cancelled as well.
Technology Support
The Tulpehocken Technology Department will be providing Remote Support to all staff and students while buildings are still closed. Please continue to put help requests in using the Technology Support button on our website at http://www.tulpehocken.org. You can also call us at 717-900-3410 and leave a message for us. We ask that you include your name, a good call back number, and the issue you are experiencing. 

The Technology Department will also be working out of the High School Auditorium Lobby on Wednesdays from 10 AM to 5 PM for hardware repairs or swaps. We ask that you still contact us by a help request or by phone first. If you do need to come to the school for repairs, please pull up to the curb outside of the Auditorium and just stay in your vehicle. We will come out to you to get the computer or iPad.

We will also continue to hand out Student Laptops and iPads every Wednesday during those hours as well. Please just call the same number, 717-900-3410 and let us know the students name so we can make sure we have it ready for you.

If you have any questions or concerns you can always email me at [email protected].
COVID-19 Update #4 - Letter from Mr. Netznik


Monday, March 16, 2020 


As you know, under the guidance of the PA Governor schools are currently closed through Sunday, March 29th.  During this time we encourage our students to participate in enrichment activities. Elementary students brought enrichment packets home Friday and secondary students have either paper or online enrichment activities.  In addition, we have added a resource link titled “Tulpy Enrichment Activities” or on our website www.tulpehocken.org

Free Grab-and-Go bagged lunches and breakfast items will be available at Bethel and Penn-Bernville Elementary Schools for pick up from 11am-12pm on Thursday, March 19th, Monday, March 23rd, and Thursday, March 26th for all Tulpehocken Area School District students.  We would ask that you sign up via a Google Form on our district website (click here) or call 717-900-3406 if you are interested in the grab-and-go option.  Please leave the name of the students in the household, and if you will be picking up at Bethel or Penn-Bernville Elementary.  Grab-and-Go bags will be available outside cafeteria entrances.  

As we move through the next two weeks, we will continue to provide updates to everyone.  Questions about prom, graduation, end of the marking period, report cards, end of the school year, etc have yet to be answered.  This is unchartered territory that all school districts are navigating and we will answer these questions when we have more direction and information.

At this time we will plan to return back to school on Monday, March 30, 2020.  Over the next two weeks we will continue to provide updates as they become available.
