Universal Meals

Great news! starting this year throughout California, as a result of Education Code (EC) 49501.5, all students in grades TK–12 will be provided two meals free of charge (breakfast and lunch) during every school day regardless of their free or reduced-price meal eligibility!

Good food and nutrition are an essential part of great learning!

Start the day off right!

Hathaway community, please ensure that our students arrive to campus no later than 8:00 am. Arriving on time allows students time to walk to their line and be ready to be picked up by their teacher. Students should be in their seats by 8:05 am. Students arriving after 8:05 are marked tardy.

Safety First

Hathaway Community, one of the most important goals at Hathaway is for us to work together to keep all students, staff and educational partners safe as we enter and exit campus.

Please remember:

  • During morning drop-of and afternoon pick up, please do not park in red zones or double park on Dollie Street in front of the school.

  • Parking lots are for district staff and individuals who need accessible parking only.

  • Please remember to use crosswalks and sidewalks when walking to campus.

  • Please be respectful to staff as we work together to enforce safety for all.


Thank you in advance for your help making Hathaway a safe and excellent school!
