School Closure

Dear Hawthorne School District Families,

I hope you are all doing well during these challenging times. Student, staff and family safety is our number one priority. State health officials have made it clear that the safest place to be is home during the COVID-19 pandemic. With that in mind, our campuses will remain physically closed for the remainder of the school year. Our decision aligns with the recommendation from Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools Debra Duardo that schools remain physically closed for the rest of the academic year. 

Importantly, while campuses are closed, school is still in session and instruction will continue. We recognize that this decision comes with many challenges. Remote learning is a new experience for all of us. The California Department of Education, the Los Angeles County Office of Education and our leadership teams work each day to identify solutions to support this new learning environment. 

Remember, after April 21st, it is important for your child to connect with his/her teachers and classmates daily. We need to keep our lines of communication and collaboration open. We know this situation can be stressful. It is a new experience for all of us.

I am proud of how our school community has come together and found creative solutions to an unprecedented challenge. I feel confident that working together we will rise to the challenge. 


Helen E. Morgan, Ed.D.
