Hello Hawk families, We have learned the governor is moving the state into green phase for state restrictions. The Administration is electing to stay in Yellow Phase according to our restart plan. This does mean we will be staying with the mask mandate. The reason we are coming to this conclusion is because our county numbers are not as good as the state numbers. We have a 14 day positivity rate that is increasing and is up to 8.72% as of yesterday. The county active case count has almost doubled since our last board meeting on January 11th. Our goal is to educate the kids the best way we can and with continuing to require the mask, it is helping us keep kids in the school. We appreciate all of you for understanding we want your kids in our schools to learn. Thank you, Administration

We need your input on the reorganization of School Districts 1 and 8. To gather your feedback, we're using a tool called Thoughtexchange. All of our voices matter, so your participation is crucial and valued. Click here to participate: https://my.thoughtexchange.com/261709430 You'll be asked to respond to one open-ended question, consider and assign stars to some of the ideas shared by others (20 to 30 is ideal), and learn what's important to the group. Your thoughts and stars are confidential. You can come back as often as you'd like to participate and, in fact, we ask that you do come back to star some of the new ideas shared since you first participated. Participation will be open until June 30th at 5 PM CDT. If you need technical help, please call Thoughtexchange at 1-800-361-9027 ext. 4 or email help@thoughtexchange.com
