Welcome to the 2012-2013 School Year!

The first day of classes is THURSDAY, AUGUST 16! School starts at 7:45 a.m.

The 2012-2013 school year has brought leadership changes to all three of our comprehensive high schools this year: Michelle Borges is the new Principal at Sierra Pacific High School, Scott Pickle is the new Principal of Hanford High School, and former Learning Director Darin Parson is taking over as Principal of Hanford West High School. Gary Marr continues to serve as Principal of Earl F. Johnson High School and Hanford Adult School. All of our administrators will out-and-about on campus this week, greeting students, meeting with parents, and visiting classes. Be sure to give them a warm welcome, if you see them!
