As we approach the upcoming Spring Break, we would like to remind you that there will be no classes from March 27th to March 31rd. We hope that this break will provide our students with an opportunity to recharge and come back to school refreshed and ready to learn. Please note that classes will resume on April 3.

Kindergarten Enrollment

We had a great Kindergarten Information Night, and would like to remind you that kindergarten enrollment is still happening at our school. If you have a child who will be turning five years old by September 1st, 2023, they are eligible to enroll in kindergarten for the upcoming academic year. If you have not already done so, we encourage you to submit your child's enrollment application as soon as possible to secure their spot in our kindergarten class.

Measure J Bond

The Hope Elementary School District Planning and Construction Management oversees new construction and modernization of all district facilities. The department is responsible for the district’s short and long-term facility needs, including enrollment and staffing projections to identify facility needs.

Through careful planning and support from the community, Hope Elementary School District has prepared well to accommodate the current needs of our students, staff, and community.  In March 2020, the Hope School District community voters passed Measure J. This $47.4 million bond will provide funding for the modernization of our facilities, including new construction at Hope Elementary School, Monte Vista Elementary School, and Vieja Valley Elementary School.

The first series of $12 million was sold in May 2020, received in June 2020, and deposited in Fund 22 (Bonds). The district must spend 85% of those proceeds within three years. Staff predicts all $47.4 million proceeds will be spent by 2025. Closing out the bond program requirements by June 2026.
