Welcome! The Newcomer Services Team supports newly arrived students and families who have arrived to the U.S. in the last six years. We serve asylees, refugees, children of migrant families and unaccompanied immigrant minors. Our program is dedicated to providing Hayward Unified School District Newcomer students and families with the tools and resources they need to succeed.
