District News


NO EARLY RELEASE ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 2

Wednesday, June 2, will be a full school day, NOT an early release day. School will dismiss at 3:43 p.m. on Wednesday, June 2.


LOST & FOUND ITEMS! 

The school’s Lost & Found is getting full again! You are always welcome to come in and look for your son or daughter’s items. We just ask that you stop in the office first. The last day to go through Lost & Found items prior to the end of the school year is Friday, May 28th.

Also, keep these handy tips in mind: Be sure to label your son or daughter’s items.  As we pack up items, we never donate anything that has been labeled.


END-OF-YEAR MEDICATION PICK UP

If your student has medication in the Health Office (i.e. Inhaler, Epi-Pen, prescription or over-the-counter medication), please make arrangements with the Health Office to pick up.  Policy dictates that we cannot send medication(s) home with students, so we ask that medication(s) be picked up by a parent/legal guardian the last week of school.  If you haven’t already done so, please call Mrs. Fenner at 715-377-3885 or email at fennerja@hudsonraiders.org to discuss.  Any unclaimed medication(s) will be discarded if not picked up by the end of day on June 4th.  Thank you!


INDIVIDUAL DISTANCE LEARNING (IDL) DEVICE RETURN

Students who have returned to school from individual distance learning (IDL) at home and who checked out a District Chromebook or Mobile Hot Spot should return those items to the school office as soon as possible. 

Students who are still participating in IDL learning are asked to return their devices on Friday, June 4, 2021.

Families will be billed for any devices not returned by Wednesday, June 9.  If you have any questions, call 715-377-3880, ext 2620.
