News and Announcements

HBCSD Schools closed Monday, March 16 - Friday, March 27

HBCSD's Board of Education met in an Emergency Board Meeting on Friday, March 13, 2020 and unanimously voted to temporarily close all HBCSD schools and offices effective Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27 out of an abundance of caution for student, staff, and community safety. The public health crisis created by COVID-19 has put our institutions, including K-12 school districts, in uncharted territory and we must take steps to prevent the spread of the illness. In addition to proactive actions taken by HBCSD, we will continue to follow the guidance of public health experts to protect our students, families, staff and the community. Students will not be provided work to complete, but rather a list of activities to do at home will be posted on our website to keep students active.
This is a stressful time for families and everyone involved so we thank you for your understanding of the many unique considerations of K-12 school districts in serving our diverse population and needs.

COVID19 Update #1

Our main priority is the safety of our students, staff, and community. As a district we have been on weekly calls with OC HCA, OCDE, and the OC Emergency Management Operational Area to stay informed on the current guidance on the novel coronavirus or COVID19.

Last night (3/11), Governor Newsom announced that California public health officials issued an updated policy on gatherings to protect public health and slow the spread of COVID-19. The state’s public health experts have determined that gatherings should be postponed or canceled across the state until at least the end of March.

As a result of this announcement and with an abundance of caution events occurring across the district today have been cancelled including but not limited to: Community Connections Meeting at Peterson ES, the Grand Opening of the Dwyer Gym, and Roots of Rock concert.


HBCSD will continue to follow the guidance from the CA Department of Public Health, the OC Health Care Agency and the Orange County Department of Education as it relates to school operations. All schools are still in session and will operate normally while practicing continued prevention strategies that include: handwashing, covering of sneezes/coughs, and avoiding touching your face and mouth. The district will provide additional information to the community shortly.
