HESD School Closures
Hanford Elementary Schools will be closed starting Monday, March 16 through Friday, May 1st with classes tentatively resuming Monday, May 4th. This is a difficult decision, but necessary, as we try to slow the spread of the virus. This closure is intended to protect the health of our students and staff members.
HESD will continue to provide meal service during the closure of our schools. Meals are served Monday – Friday from 11:00 – 12:30 p.m. at the following HESD school sites: Lincoln Elementary, MLK Elementary, Monroe Elementary & JFK Junior High School. Any child ages 0 – 18 may get a meal at any of our sites. Children must be present to receive the meal. The only days meal service will not be provide is Friday, April 10th and Monday, April 13th.
Distance learning is underway for our HESD students. Laptops for students in grades 3 – 8 are in the process of being handed out. Schools sites will be communicating their schedules for laptop distribution to their families. Work packets will continue and new ones will be available after Spring Break. Communication will come out when those new packets will be available. Additionally, teachers may be reaching out to students by phone, please consider answering an unknown number.
Once again, please refer to our website at www.hanfordesd.org for updates. Thank you for your understanding and support during this challenging time in our State and Nation.
