Importance of School Attendance!
If your child will be absent due to an appointment, it is recommended that you attain an excuse from your provider for the date and time of the visit and return the excuse to the school office. This will ensure that the absence is noted as an excused absence or tardy. Appointment cards will NOT be accepted as an excuse.
Call to report your child's daily absence by calling the school's attendance line at 662-7990.
NEW!! Report your child's absence online here : http://forestglenhssd.weebly.com/electronic-absence-form.html
Monitor your child’s tardies and absences through the district website: http://powerschool.hssd.k12.wi.us/public/

EMERGENCY CLOSINGS AND DELAYS
Inclement weather may necessitate the closing or delay of schools. If schools are closed this will also include the cancellation of extracurricular activities and the events in the community pool unless otherwise announced. Please listen to local radio or television stations for school closings or delays. Such weather may also deter students from going outside during the school day. Please be sure that students are dressed appropriately for the weather. In addition to local radio and television, weather conditions can be checked on-line at www.hssd.k12.wi.us.
2017-2018 HSSD Calendar
School Highlights Continued
DRESS FOR THE WEATHER
Please remember to send your child with appropriate outer wear each day. This should include winter jacket, snow pants,
boots, mittens/gloves and hat. Please remember to label all items with child's name. As a rule all children go outside daily when the weather temperature, factoring in the wind chill, is at or above zero degrees. This can be a long time when you feel chilled! Some students are also walking to and from school and some may be standing at a bus stop for several minutes. We want all our children to stay healthy so they can do their best at school!

From Your School Board
Did You Know?
As the Board of Education continues to review the Community Task Force recommendations, we are reminded of their work and insight into our district. The Task Force members expressed surprise at several facts about the Howard Suamico School District. For example, did you know the HSSD tax levy remains at $9.19 per $1,000 of property value for the third straight year; this is well below the state average of $9.97 per $1,000 in 2016-17. This fact demonstrates the Board’s policy of fiscal accountability to the taxpayers of our district. For more information about the Community Task Force report, please view www.hssd.k12.wi.us/referendum. If you have any questions for the Board of Education, please reach out to your team member located in this article.
