Dear HGSD Parents, Staff and Community, May 14th, 2021
Thank you for your ongoing efforts to keep our school open and keep our students and staff safe. Our attendance rates across the district remain consistently strong. Please continue to watch and monitor your child(ren) for possible symptoms before sending them to school. Don’t forget that vaccines for COVID-19 are now available for 16 and 17 year olds.
There has been a lot of questions and discussion regarding the new CDC mask guidance and the Sheboygan County Health Department’s recommendations for masking. As of now, the CDC’s school guidance remains unchanged. Most students will still be unvaccinated and schools should follow CDC’s guidance for schools. Students and staff on buses should continue to follow all masking and physical distancing guidelines. The Board of Education will be discussing this topic at the regular monthly meeting on May 17th.
The Middle School has completed their State Forward Testing. We will be administering Aimsweb testing next week, May 17th-21st. The 8th grade team is finalizing details on 8th Grade Recognition which will be held on the evening of Monday, June 7th. More information will be sent in the upcoming days.
Northview Elementary School has been busy planning for an end of the year Field Day to celebrate our student’s accomplishments. We are going to have an all school cookout to kick off the festivities. Each classroom will have their designated area to play games, laugh, and have fun on the last day of school.
Howards Grove Graduation will be on June 6th at 2:00 PM. The outside ceremony will take place at our football stadium. Information regarding reserved seating, tickets, general seating and plans for inclement weather were sent via email to all senior families and students on Tuesday May 11.
The “Senior” Prom for grades 9-12 will take place on Friday June 11th from 8-11 pm at HGHS.
On Monday, the regular monthly meeting of the school board will be held at 7pm. A link to watch the meeting is available on the district website www.hgsd.k12.wi.us .
As always, thank you for your continued support of the Howards Grove School District. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us if you have questions or concerns.
