Welcome to Hansen School!
What an exciting school year 2020-21 is shaping up to be! My name is Nicole Fischer and I am honored to serve as the principal of Hansen Elementary School. Parents, teachers, support staff, community and administration all play a part in helping our students meet and exceed our expectations of them.
Hansen School's Reopening Through Distance Learning
Welcome to Hansen School! Based on the Governor’s July 17 Order, we will begin the 2020-21 school year with 100% Distance Learning through the end of the first trimester for all students. The first trimester ends on Friday, October 30. If Orange County is removed from the state’s COVID-19 monitoring list sooner than the end of the first trimester, the district will begin a transition process to shift to on-campus instruction. Even though this year is starting differently than we had expected, I am excited to see everyone through our on-line learning platforms and see learning continue.
Please know that our District is committed to ensuring that our Distance Learning Program is meaningful and representative of the high caliber of education that Savanna School District is known for. Students will be expected to attend daily to take full advantage of daily live standards-based lessons, rigorous and engaging pre-recorded lessons, small group instruction, and grade-appropriate assignments. Students will be graded on the assignments they submit; grades with progress toward their grade level standards will be issued. Please see sample learning model below. Each teacher will reach out to families with specific classroom times and expectations.
We will continue to monitor health and safety guidelines from our state and local agencies. If you have any questions or need support, our school office staff will be available from 7:45- 3:00 on all school days. We hope you and your family stay healthy and safe. Hansen Huskies are AMAZING!!!

Hansen School's Instructional Program
Our instructional strategies and practices are aligned with the Common Core State Standards as our dedicated staff members provide our students with a high caliber learning experiences in caring and nurturing environments. Our goal is that all of our students develop and maintain a love for learning! We are continuing our focus on Benchmark Advance, including working with students toward mastering academic vocabulary, becoming fluent readers, and using their writing skills for effective communication. These are critical to a student’s continued success in their educational journey! These skills will be stressed through Distance Learning at all grade levels as we continue to equip our students to build for their future success.
We are continuing to see tremendous academic and community improvements at Hansen School; we can't help but let our PRIDE show in the tremendous progress of our students! We continue to witness an even higher standard of excellence this year, and are continuing to provide the support and leadership needed to meet these goals. It is our goal to provide our students with the necessary skills to become proficient 21st Century Learners. Teachers are excited to continue to implement our Common Core aligned comprehensive ELA/ELD curriculum in addition to the iReady intervention program.
