Welcome to Hoover Elementary

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.

 

Before School Supervision Opens at 7:40 a.m.

Before School Supervision starts each morning at 7:40 a.m. As a courtesy to our families, this no-cost childcare is available in the Hoover gym.  Please do NOT drop your child off at Hoover School prior to 7:40 a.m.  We do not have any one on staff to supervise your child before this time.

Any students arriving on campus after 7:40 a.m. but prior to classroom doors opening at 8:10 a.m. are required to report to the gym for supervision.

2018 – 2019 Enrollment for Returning Students

Last week we sent home an Enrollment Forecasting Sheet (on yellow paper) for all current Kdg-4th grade students.  These sheets help us determine which students are planning to return for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year. 

 

These forecasting sheets are due back by next Wednesday, April 25th.  For those who have turned in their forms, thank you so much!  For those who have not returned their forms, please send them in as quickly as possible. We appreciate your assistance.

School Facilities Bond Information

Based on the recommendation of a community-based Long Range Facilities Planning Committee, the Corvallis School Board has placed a bond measure on the May 15th ballot to address the aging infrastructure of Corvallis School District facilities.  Details about bond projects are available on the school district website at www.corvallisbond.org.

 

The 2018 Corvallis School District Bond would address safety and security, relieve crowded schools by replacing 21 portable classrooms with permanent spaces, expanding vocational learning spaces, and providing renovation and repairs in every school in our system.
