Hynes Elementary School believes in an inclusive environment that promotes equality, values diversity and enhances learning, and a social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected.

The traditions at Hynes are grounded in the school's value of supporting and educating the whole child. Engaging families and others in supporting students is the foundation for our students' success. Showcasing our students' work in academic areas brings our families together as partners. These opportunities include Open House, parent-teacher conferences, Science and Art Expos, Kids Can Code evening series, and the annual English Language Learner Family Night. Building partnerships is always based on addressing the needs of students and improving learning outcomes.

Our administration and staff take a personalized interest in each member of the Hynes community. They demonstrate respect and camaraderie in their interactions, and they show genuine care and concern to each student, parent, and visitor. A culture and climate of kindness and positivity is valued. Safety is a top priority; the vigilance of staff and parents allows our students to feel safe and comfortable at school and focused on their academics, social needs and emotional growth.

Communication and engagement are priorities at Hynes. Information is easily accessible on the district website and online parent portal. Phone calls, notes and meetings keep parents informed of their children’s achievements and challenges.

Hynes is truly a place of learning and growing in an environment that values and recognizes each child's potential.
