Safety in Our Circle Drive
Please be reminded that students should not be dropped off or picked up in the Circle Drive in front of school unless they have an injury or disability. The circle is too small to accommodate more than a few cars, and it is dangerous to have cars drive through the parking lots as students are arriving or dismissing.
All drop off and pick up of students should either be on Cardinal Lane or Woodale Avenue. Thank you for your cooperation.

Tax Levy – A Long Term Investment
At this time of year our property tax bills begin to arrive. During the budget process each year, there are things the School Board can control, and things the Board cannot control.
The Howard-Suamico School District is driven to work with families and the community to ensure that our students have the knowledge and skills to succeed in a changing world. This objective is something we can control, and our budgets are created not only for the needs of today but also for future use. There is a continuous focus on making sure that the long-term per pupil expenditure is fiscally responsible (ex., limited open enrollment, adjustments to benefits, and increasing partnerships with members of the business community). Another factor in our control is the levy rate. Since the 2011-12 school year, this rate has decreased from 9.73 to the 9.19 rate that we have maintained for 4 years.
The information on our tax bills that the District does not control is the total property value within our area, as well as the increase or decrease to individual parcels of property. When the stable tax rate of 9.19 is applied to changing valuation amounts, the result changes from year to year. As taxpayers in our District, the Board of Education focuses on ensuring effective stewardship of the tax revenue we receive, not only for today but for the long term. If you have questions for the Board of Education, please reach out to your Board member located in this article.
Emergency School 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.
