Principal's Message


Students aren’t the only ones in a digital transformation; so are parents, teachers, and our school office.  Only a few years ago we sent home a weekly paper newsletter, paper report cards, and we sent home flyers or alerts with students or put them on TV or the radio.  Now we have our Bay View Webpage, our on-line newsletter, Bay View News which is updated instantly, emailed daily announcements, PowerSchool, our on-line grade book, phone alerts, and more recently Schoology, Facebook, and Twitter.  You can support your child best if you are digitally transforming with him/her.  Be sure to take advantage of all of these resources to stay informed and stay connected.  Like us on Facebook at Howard-Suamico School District and follow us on Twitter at @hssdbv and me personally at @principalmeyers  #the principal’slearningtoo.

Your Child's Attendance

Did you know

Good attendance shows potential employers that your child is reliable. Research suggests that children who attend school regularly could also be at less risk of getting involved in antisocial behavior or crime.
