Welcome

Howell Mountain Elementary School District (HMESD) is a small, rural, single-school district located in Angwin, California. For more than 125 years, Howell Mountain School has provided students with an exceptional public education from the early years in transitional kindergarten through eighth grade. We are a small school with a personal touch. Serving just over 90 students, our small size affords us the opportunity to understand and accommodate the individual needs of every single student in our care. 

A Message from Our Superintendent and Principal

Hello Families,

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. As you know we have spent over 40 days preparing a safe plan for the reopening of our school. This plan requires guidance from our health care leaders. Thank you for participating in our reopening parent surveys and thank you for reaching out to me directly to convey your desires and/or concerns. This information has been very helpful in our planning process. We are working on plans for starting school on August 19, 2020. I wanted to share information about what we know as of now with the knowledge that these decisions could change as circumstances continue to evolve. For more information, please read the re-opening letter in its entirety. 

Queridas Familias, 

Gracias pro su paciencia y comprensión durante estos tiempos sin precedentes. Como saben, hemos pasado más de 40 días preparando un plan seguro para la reapertura de nuestra escuela. Este plan requiere orientación de nuestros líderes de atención médica.

Esta información ha sido muy útil en nuestro proceso de planificación. Estamos trabajando en planes para comenzar la escuela el 19 de agosto de 2020. Quería compartir información sobre lo que sabemos a partir de ahora con el conocimiento de que estas decisiones podrianían cambiar a medida que las circunstancias continúen evolucionando. Para obtener más información, lea la carta de reapertura en su totalidad.
