We are aware of the snow in Hesperia and the surrounding areas. Students are safely in class, all schools are currently open and will continue under their normal bell schedules; however, we are working to help keep students indoors as much as possible. The weather service predictions are that the snow will clear at midday. We will continue to monitor the situation and road conditions and respond accordingly. If any changes are made we will communicate those changes to the community. In the absence of any further announcements, schools will remain open and dismiss at their normal times. We ask parents to plan for extra time when picking students up and to be as patient as possible as we all deal with the winter weather.
All HUSD school sites will be open today Friday, February 24, 2023.

We'd like to urge all parents and students to use crosswalks at intersections and ensure everyone crosses streets the safest way possible. Our arrival and dismissal times cause heavy vehicle traffic at each school and we want to direct pedestrians to avoid walking in the roadway. Even when it is more convenient, we challenge you to cross the road the right way so we can avoid any potential disasters. Thank you and stay safe!
Parents, please be aware that some criminal drug networks are using social media and smartphone apps to flood the U.S. with deadly fentanyl and fentanyl-laced fake pills.

Brightly-colored fentanyl (referred to as rainbow fentanyl) has been identified as a new trend according to the United States (U.S.) Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). Rainbow fentanyl can be found in many forms, including pills, powder, and blocks that can resemble sidewalk chalk or candy. Any pill (regardless of its color, shape, or size) that does not come from a health care provider or pharmacist can contain fentanyl and can be deadly.

This week is National School Bus Safety Week. We'd like to remind everyone California law requires drivers to stop in both directions when a school bus has flashing red lights on. Drivers must stay stopped until the red lights are off, and children are on or off the bus and safely out of the road. Our officers along with deputies from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department will make an emphasis this week on enforcing these laws to keep our students safe. https://local.nixle.com/alert/9712281/?sub_id=0
