Hazen Highlights


Message from Principal Landes 
Welcome back after our short Thanksgiving break! We hope you all enjoyed the break with your loved ones and that you enjoyed some great food. I am very thankful to be a part of our community because of its investment in our children and the future. Not only did we pass a bond that will fund upgrades to Hazen but we also raised over 20,000 for families in our community that needed some help for Thanksgiving (see me getting egged below- it was a great hair day). I am proud to call myself a Highlander and have even more pride to be part of this phenomenal, supportive community.  
Thank you all!  

Thanksgiving fun

If inclement weather—like snow or ice—makes a school schedule change necessary, the decision will be made by the Superintendent and communicated by phone and email to families and staff by 5 a.m. Families should ensure their school has their most current contact information. Update contact information (phone/email) through Skyward Family Access

We also communicate school closures or changes on: 
· Renton School District website and all school websites 
· District Facebook page 
· District Twitter page 
· District Instagram page 
· Local media outlets (TV, radio)
