It's Going to be a GREAT YEAR at Hoover!

A Note from the Principal

I am so excited to be starting another year at Hoover. For those of you who are not familiar, my name is Marci Galinowski and this will be my 5th year as the Hoover School Principal and 16th year with Crawfordsville Community Schools. I have been working as an educator since 2001. In addition to serving in administration, I have been a classroom teacher, Media Specialist, and grant coordinator.

I look forward to getting to know your students and working with all of our Hoover families this school year. If at any time, you have questions or I may be of service to you, please contact me at: or 362-2691 x4201.

Looking forward to seeing you all very soon!

Marci Galinowski, Principal

The First Day of School

The first day of school will be on Monday, August 10, 2020. Bus drivers will be making phone calls with your student's pick-up and drop-off times. Please be patient and allow for up to 10 minutes before or after your child's scheduled time at the bus stop. On the first few days of school, it can take longer for the bus to arrive as we have many new students learning the process and figuring out which bus to get on, etc...

  • Doors open at 7:30, car riders and walkers should enter through Door 12 on Elm St. by the cafeteria. Bus riders will enter through the south parking lot doors.
  • The tardy bell rings at 8:05. Students who arrive to school after 8:05 must enter through door 1 by the office to receive a pass to class. Students who arrive after 8:05 will be counted as tardy.
  • Dismissal is at 2:05. Car riders and walkers will exit through Door 1 by the office.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Recess!

Breakfast is FREE for all students at Hoover. New to Hoover this year, breakfast will be served in the classroom every day.

Lunch & Recess

This year all classes will have recess before lunch. After recess, students will have a 30-minute lunch break. For the health and safety of our students, lunch will be eaten in the classroom this year.

Masks, Water Bottles, and Supplies - Oh My!

Students should bring their supplies and backpacks on the first day of school. If they cannot carry all of their supplies, they may bring them over the course of a few days. All supplies must fit in the backpack of bus riders.

All students must have a face mask with them at all times. If students do not have a face mask, one will be provided for them on the first day of school.

Every student needs to bring a water bottle to school and take it home nightly to be washed. Disposable bottles are acceptable. If students forget to bring a water bottle, one will be provided. If your student is a big drinker, consider sending two bottles of water to limit trips to the bottle filling stations.

Information for Car Riders and Walkers

Drop-off and Pick-up for Car Riders and Walkers

**Please view our welcome video for more detailed car rider information and visual.**


Car riders and walkers can be dropped off as early as 7:30 AM at Door 12 facing Elm St. For everyone's safety - Do NOT drop off students along the bus lane behind the school in the south parking lot. Cars should pull up to the school along the sidewalk facing south along Elm St. You may release your car rider anywhere along the sidewalk to walk to Door 12 by the cafeteria. Once your car rider is a safe distance from the car, please proceed to South St. by the PT Building and turn left or right to continue on your morning route. For everyone's safety please do not make a U-turn on Elm St. or drive through the South Parking lot where bus riders are being released from buses.

Students who arrive after 8:05 must enter through the school office at Door 1 and receive a tardy pass to class. Door 12 will be locked promptly at 8:05.


Dismissal begins at 2:05. Car riders and walkers will be released from classes out Door 1 by the office.

Drivers should approach Hoover School heading east on Hughes St. Once drivers reach the corner of Hughes St. and Elm St., they should turn right and pull into a parking space in front of the school. DO NOT PARK IN THE SOUTH PARKING LOT TO PICK UP YOUR STUDENT. This creates a dangerous situation for our students and bus drivers. Car riders should only be picked up on Elm St. or the portion of Hughes St. close to the corner. Drivers may park in the marked parking spaces in front of Hoover School to wait for their car riders to come outside. Please do NOT PARK in any of the handicap accessible spaces or unmarked bus lane space in front of Door 12. We have several buses and parents who transport students with exceptional needs who need to use those spaces daily and they appreciate your consideration.
