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,

Thankfully, our community is safe. After 10 days of evacuation, we understand families are anxious to get their lives back to normal. Please know our school staff is here to support all of you. Although our evacuation orders are voluntary, our school staff will be on-site on Monday to distribute learning materials and supplies. Please look for a message from your child's teacher with further information. We miss our students and families. And, we wish you continued good health.

My best,

Dr. Janet Tufts
