HJUHSD launches online reporting option for safety concerns and bullying incidents

As a District, we recognize that creating a safe learning environment is a critical part of helping each child achieve academic success. With this knowledge, we introduce Sprigeo, a new online system that students can use to report bullying incidents and school safety threats. Sprigeo will give your child another medium for communicating with our school administration when bullying or school safety incidents occur.

The number one reason why children do not report bullying or abuse is the fear of retaliation from their peers. The Sprigeo reporting form can be accessed from the privacy of a home computer or other internet equipped device, eliminating the possibility of being identified by another student. Although reports can be sent anonymously, over 90% of students include their name when using the Sprigeo system.

Submitting a report is as easy as 1-2-3.
1. Click on the link.
2. Complete the “SEND A REPORT” form.
3. Submit with the “GO” button.

Students can access the reporting form directly through a link on their school’s website, the District’s website, or they may go to All information sent through the Sprigeo system goes directly to school administrators via a secure online connection. The details are immediately sent to our school administrators in a secure e-mail.

We encourage all students to use this new resource to report bullying and help us maintain a safer learning environment.

Hanford seniors still need more than 50 community volunteers to serve as discussion leaders for the annual HJUHSD Senior Ethics Workshop April 16, 18 and 19.

The Senior Ethics Workshops are designed to help our young adults think about their decisions and actions and to help them make good choices in their lives.

Ethics Table Leaders help guide small groups of students through a series of structured activities and conversations.

The program is designed to prompt students to think about what is important to them,  how and why they make decisions, and the consequences of those decisions. The heart of the program is the interaction between community volunteers and the students at their tables as they discuss real-world scenarios and dilemmas designed to challenge their thinking.

The workshops will be 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. April 16, 18 and 19 at Koinonia Hall in Hanford.

New Table Leaders are encouraged (and returning volunteers are always welcome) to attend an orientation session April 10 at the HJUHSD District Office (823 W. Lacey Blvd., Hanford), but it is not mandatory.

To register as a Table Leader for 1, 2, or all 3 of the workshops, please complete the Table Leader Registration Form.  If you have any questions, please email:

State exit exam is March 12 and 13

HJUHSD students will take the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) March 12 and 13.

The CAHSEE is a state-mandated graduation requirement for all students. All sophomores, juniors and seniors who have not already passed it will take the test. It is very important that all students are present and prepared to give their best efforts.

As always, we encourage students to be at school on time, well-rested, and with a good breakfast and ask that you schedule any appointments outside of the school day.

If you have any questions about the CAHSEE test or schedule, please contact your school testing secretary.
