Communications Department

The Hollister R-V School District is committed to open, honest, and ongoing communication with our school community. We understand that maintaining a two-way conversation is essential for building relationships.

These relations are the foundation of a strong school system. The district desires to foster strong relationships with district stakeholders.

Statistics consistently show that schools are among the safest places to be due to the strong commitment of educators, families, and our community to our students and schools. We strive to be proactive rather than reactive. In the event of an emergency situation, the Hollister R-V School District has developed a guide that outlines the key elements of our state of preparedness. We hope it will answer questions you have concerning our actions and intentions in the event of an emergency.
