Welcome to HHES

  • Hermon Hutchens Elementary School serves approximately 300 students in preschool through fifth grade and is located in Valdez, Alaska on beautiful Prince William Sound.  Our school offers great educational opportunities for every student with curriculum-based best practices.  All students also attend "pull out" classes in physical education, art + tech, music, and library.

    For the 2022-2023 school year, the Child Nutrition Program will be required to charge for meals. For the past two years, the USDA granted waivers that allowed students to eat at no charge. Those waivers have expired. Please click HERE to fill out the required application for your student to receive Free or Reduced lunches.
