Hello and welcome to Hoover Elementary! We are a Kindergarten – 5th Grade Elementary School in Corvallis, Oregon. Please explore our website to find information about our school and the Corvallis School District.
We are back! The Hoover Office is open for the 2019/2020 school year. Hours are posted below. We are looking forward to the start of another great school year!
Welcome Back to School BBQ
Our September “Welcome Back” All-School BBQ is Friday, September 13th, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. This event is sponsored by your HPTO and is free to our Hoover families. More information will be coming soon!
Parent Curriculum Night
Each September we hold a Curriculum Night for parents to come learn about what their students will be studying during the school year. Curriculum Night this year will be Thursday, September 19th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Mark your calendar and plan to attend!
Hoover Office Summer Schedule
- August summer hours begin Monday, August 5th, and run through the month of August. The office will be open to the public from 9am – 12pm and 1pm – 3pm.
- The office will be closed Tuesday, August 27th for our building professional development and Wednesday, August 28th for district professional development.
New School Hours
Starting in the 2019-20 school year, all elementary schools will start the school day at 8:05 am and end at 2:30 pm.
All buses will arrive at elementary schools no earlier than 7:30 am and no later than 7:50 am. We are committed to having all students at school with ample time to eat breakfast and arrive in class by 8:05 am. This change will assist in scheduling buses and increase on-time school arrivals for middle school students
Breakfast will be available for students in the cafeteria/gym each morning at 7:30 am until the tardy bell rings at 8:05 am. Once the tardy bell rings, front office staff will have breakfast to go available to make sure that every student has a meal and does not miss classroom instruction time.
The morning start time change will facilitate all classes starting the day together in a morning meeting and ensures that the instructional day is consistent for all elementary students in the Corvallis School District. There is no change to the Franklin School daily schedule.

Hoover 2019-2020 Supply List
In order to reduce the back-to-school financial burden for families, all general classroom supplies (items such as pencils, glue, spiral notebooks, & crayons) are purchased in bulk and paid for by our district. We have a list of personal student supplies we suggest you have your student bring to school. We also have a wish list of items the school always needs.
Please be sure to label personal student supplies. Please contact the office for confidential assistance with personal student supplies or if you have any questions, 541-757-5958.
