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.
