Hornet Families,

To combat COVID-19 and the upcoming flu season,  there may be a need to move students to alternative classrooms to clean certain areas throughout the school day.  Due to lower numbers of students in our brick and mortar schools, we have empty classrooms available.  This is just another step in making sure we are taking every precaution to make sure students and staff stay healthy.  Just a reminder, if the Citrus County Health Department determines your child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you will be contacted by the Citrus County Health Department with further instructions.

About our school

Hernando Elementary School is beginning its thirty-seventh year.  It is a pre-kindergarten through fifth grade elementary school.  The campus sits on thirty-five beautifully wooded acres.  The original Hernando Elementary School was built in 1939 and is located in the town of Hernando.  Hernando students attended school at that site until 1983 when the present building opened its doors.  The original school is now a historical landmark.

Mission Statement

We recognize that all individuals can learn at different times, at different rates, and in different ways.  In doing so, we provide an opportunity for life long learning.

We Believe

A safe and caring environment is essential for the learning and well being of all individuals.  High expectations and challenging standards promote continuous improvement and high achievement.  To be responsible learners, students require discipline and direction.

We must be learners who engage in continuous inquiry about teaching.
We must be positive role models for children and adults.
We must come from the perspective that asks, "What is best for our students?"
