Superintendent's Message

HSD students return to classrooms implementing all Los Angeles County safety protocols.  

Welcome Back!

We are well into the 2021-2022 school year. It has been especially fulfilling to see the start of this school year. After having students and staff working from home for a full year and then a hybrid return, it is wonderful to have all of our students back to a full-day of instruction. While many families have determined that it is best for them to continue in a virtual environment, more than eighty-five percent of our students and all of our staff have returned to campus.

Life in a worldwide pandemic is a new experience for all of us and we have had to learn to navigate daily experiences in a whole new way. Wearing a mask has become the new normal. Keeping our distance and washing our hands many times a day is just what we do now. I am so proud of our students and staff. Everyone is doing what is expected without complaints. I think we are all so happy to be back together in person, that these little inconveniences are just that. . . a little inconvenience.

We have implemented measures to keep our schools clean and safe.  Classrooms are misted to kill germs that may cause illness. Ionization systems have been installed to provide healthy air quality at all schools. New furniture has been purchased to assist in distancing students. We are following all protocols recommended by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. We will continue to work collaboratively to ensure the safest environment for our students and staff. We strive to do all we can to keep our staff and students on campus. I, for one, would be happy to never have experienced a worldwide pandemic. Unfortunately, that is not the reality today. I have come to appreciate many of the things I took for granted before March 2020, especially, seeing our students engaged, laughing, learning, and thriving at school.

I look forward to an exceptional year!
