Hanford Elementary has partnered with Big Smiles to offer in-school dental care.  Simply complete the permission form or go to to sign up your child.

There may be no cost to you if your child is insured with Medi-Cal.  Private insurance and self-pay options are also available.  

Our in-school dental program saves you time and provides a safe and comfortable place for your child to receive gentle dental care from licensed, local professionals.  Dental care includes a complete dental exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride and sealants when necessary, and in some cases, restorative care such as fillings.

By having your child see the in-school dentist, you can help reduce the risk of:

  • Early tooth loss caused by dental decay
  • Gum disease
  • Heart disease
  • Impaired speech development

Taking care of your child's teeth is an important part of keeping them healthy.

Permission Form for service can be completed at



Principal's Message

Class lists will be posted outside the front office on August 9th after 4:30pm.

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 13th beginning at 8:00am.
Parents are welcome to walk their students to their classrooms on the first day and to their class lines. We will hold a Kinder and SDC Meet and Greet on August 12th from 3-4pm so our littlest Patriots have an opportunity to meet their teachers and see their new classrooms prior to the first day.

Learn from Home Resources

Learn from Home Resources are posted on our HESD website. You will notice that resources are organized by grade level spans: TK-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 6th-8th. Please check out the resources to support continued learning for your child!
Thank you for your support!


Please have all students enter through the kindergarten gate, north of the kindergarten classrooms. We hope this will alleviate traffic congestion in the parking lot area.  Remember: in consideration of others, please pull all the way forward when dropping off your students.


Change in Dismissal Information

To provide optimal safety, security and consistency for all students, any changes to your child's dismissal instructions will only be accepted until 11:00 a.m. each morning. Exceptions will be made for extreme emergencies only. Please help us  keep your child safe and secure by adhering to this policy on a daily basis.
