District News




We're looking forward to the start of the school year on August 14th! We will be transitioning to a new website in August, but we will continue to update this one until we're ready to change. Some important announcements for the start of the school year:


  • Early Releases - Early releases will occur two times per month beginning in September. On the first and third Wednesday of each month, we will dismiss 5th-8th grade students at 1:15 pm and PK-4th grade students at 1:45 pm. Teachers will use this time for staff meetings, curriculum meetings and data analysis meetings. These early releases are crucial to our student achievement improvement.
  • Students in 5th-8th grade who are interested in Co-ed Soccer or Girls' Volleyball will begin practices after school on August 15th. Practice will end at 5:00 pm, and parents can pick up their children at the main entrance. Co-ed cross country practice will begin Monday, August 19th. If you have questions, please email Dr. Wings at swings@hsd36.org.
  • Parent-Teacher Conferences will be September 26-27. This is much earlier than usual, as we would like to meet with parents in the middle of the first trimester to establish the positive home-school relationship.
  • If you have paperwork to turn into the main office, we will be open from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm until school begins. Once school begins, we will be open 7:30 am - 4:00 pm.
