Guide for families about when to keep your child home from school. As members of the Hiawatha community, we are all responsible for the health and safety of our students.

If students do not have boots and snow pants, they will need to stay on paved areas of the playground during recess. This is done to keep them dry.
Also, please pack shoes for your student to wear inside the school building. Wearing wet snow boots is not only uncomfortable but makes for wet floors, which can lead to injury.
A steering committee was formed in the fall of 2016 called Voices for Education (VFE). Made up of students, teachers, school administrators, community members, and school board representatives, VFE is in the process of being actively involved in helping to facilitate dialogue and other engagement opportunities to help the EWSD. Learn more about VFE and the activities that they are taking part in.
Nearly 80 participants came together to share their experiences and perspectives around the community that they live in.
