Daily Schedule:  The school day at Hazen Union School begins promptly at 7:50 AM and ends at 2:35 PM. Students are expected to be on time and prepared for the academic day.

Student and Parent Handbook:  Every Hazen student received a copy of the new Hazen Union School Student and Parent Handbook on the first day of school  Parents are also asked to review the student handbook with their child to insure that there is an understanding of student expectations and school policies.  Questions about the student handbook may be directed to John Craig, Associate Principal.
