Principal's Message

DSC00226.JPGStudents aren’t the only ones in a digital transformation;  so are parents, teachers, and our school office.  Only a few years ago we send home a weekly paper newsletter, paper report cards, and we send 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 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 middle@hssdbv.

Wisconsin Public School Observance Day

Dress for the Weather!

WINDYCOLD.jpgStudents are required to go outside for part of their lunch, therefore, they need to have the proper outdoor clothing for the weather.  Students that are dropped off at school in the morning are required to wait outside until the bell rings. Students will be allowed to wait inside if the temperature is at zero or below or the wind chill is minus 10 or more. A staff member will let students know when they are able to wait inside.

1. As a general rule, students will remain indoors if the air temperature is below zero Fahrenheit or the wind-chill factor is 10 degrees below zero or less.

2. Some below zero wind-chill factors may be tolerable when air temperatures are moderate and the wind is not continuously sustained; this may be deemed tolerable by the administration if the wind is fluctuating in bright sunlight.

3. Brief exposure to tolerable below-degree temperatures may occur if the students have been confined to the indoors for more than a few days in succession-for example, children may be allowed to go outside for 5 to 10 minutes during part of the noon hour.
