  • 2022-2023 Free and Reduced Lunch Applications

    Online applications will be available Aug 1st.

  • Good afternoon,
    Beginning July 1, 2022 Hanover Community School Corporation will no longer take credit card payments over the phone or in person from parents.
    The policy change is due to changes in Cyber Liability Insurance. This is to ensure the safety of you and your credit card information.
    All credit card payments will need to be paid online by the parent through their parent Powerschool account. All bookkeepers may continue to accept cash and checks for fees.

  • Dear Hanover Community School families,


    We have become aware of a troubling post that has been shared widely this week on TikTok, a popular social media platform. The post refers to a threat to school “for every school in the USA, even elementary,” on Friday, December 17th. The post appears to be part of a national TikTok trend and did not originate in our school district. 


    We have heard from surrounding schools that the same post is circulating in their schools, as well. We do not believe this post to be credible, however, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking it very seriously.


    The district has been in contact with the Cedar Lake police department regarding the post and we have increased police presence on Friday, December 17th. We will also be closely monitoring the students in all schools.

    This situation is a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts that refer to school safety threats. Those that are not credible threats still cause a great deal of stress to the students, families, and staff. We ask that you monitor what your children are doing online and discuss safe behavior on the Internet. 


    If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted on social media or anywhere else, we ask that you notify a school staff member right away.


    As always, thank you for your cooperation as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment at Hanover for our students.

  • As school food service programs are returning to normal service and menus, we are facing unprecedented issues with the supply chain that will cause us to alter our posted menus with little to no notice.  We are working closely with our distributors and manufacturers to secure both the food and supply items needed to support our program.

    While it is our intention to serve the posted menu each day at every school, supply issues will not make this possible throughout the school year until supply chain issues are rectified.  We will always attempt to substitute the scheduled menu item with another that is as similar as possible to the extent we are able to do so.
    Please know that we will always provide wholesome meals each and every day.  
    You may contact me, Michelle Philipp, with any questions or concerns 219-374-3921 or
    Thank you for understanding.
