Principal's Message

Hathaway Community, June brings us to the end of another successful year at Hathaway with Summer just around the corner! We still have a lot of learning left to do so please help us by encouraging students to work hard through the end of the year! The staff and I want to thank you for your continued support of Hathaway and the great job you have been doing to support students at home!

Please take a few moments to read our entire newsletter. This issue contains important information about the end of the school year and some of the chores we have to finish up

Reminder that every Wednesday of the year is an early release day. Kindergarteners dismiss at 11:56 am grades First - Fifth dismiss at 1:02 pm.

Thursday, June 1: ALL Kindergarteners will begin to dismiss daily at 11:25 am. for the remainder of the year.

Even though the end of the school year is almost here we still have a lot to learn! Please continue to support our students by:

  • Encouraging you child to read every night. 20 to 30 minutes reading everyday will help make a big difference in their learning lives.
  • Encourage your child to count, add, subtract multiply and divide. Encourage them to solve math problems and see how math is a part of our daily lives at work and at home.

Please note the changes in our daily schedule for the last month of school. If you have any questions or concerns about your child's progress or need any support at school or home, please stop by, call, email or text us!

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 be aware that the Oxnard Police Department will be in the area and may be issuing citations.

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!

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.

Dressed and Ready to GO!

Gentle reminders for dressing for success when coming to school: Please wear school appropriate clothing when at Hathaway.

Items that are not allowed:

  • gang-related insignia/graffiti on clothing, backpack or school supplies/work,

  • clothing with inappropriate writing (alcohol, drugs, weapons, disrespectful statements)

  • No clothing, hats or personal items with team/sports logos

  • Pajamas (except on celebration days)

  • sleeveless tops, see through blouses/shirts, low cut or bare midriff tops; spaghetti straps

Nothing that distracts from the learning environment is allowed.
