Hoover Families,

Watch your Friday Folders! Your student will be receiving a Hoover ID card that will work as a Student Asset Card at the Palo Alto City Libraries if you opted in. Hoover Kindergarten through third grade students will be receiving their ID cards in their Friday Folders, along with instructions for activation. Fourth and Fifth Grade students will receive their ID cards during their Library Class visit this Thursday. We will activate these cards together in the Hoover Library.
