Meet Ms. Danielle Zeniecki

Ms. Zeniecki is our newest HHASD Team Member! She joined Team FLES in January and is providing reading support and coverage at FLES. Our Dolphin Leaders learned a lot while interviewing her. Here are three fun facts:


  1. Ms. Zeniecki has never had a soda ... not even a sip!
  2. Llamas (and alpacas) are her favorite animals... she loves how fuzzy they are.
  3. She has participated in pageants... as recently as two weeks ago and has two more in March! Her talent is singing and her song choice is "This is Me," from The Greatest Showman! Good luck Ms. Zeniecki!

Open Enrollment Program

Open Enrollment for the 2020-2021 School Year

The Public school open enrollment program in Wisconsin allows parents to apply for their children to attend a public school in a school district other than the one in which they reside. The regular open enrollment application period for the 2020-21 school year begins on February 3, 2020, and ends at 4:00 pm on April 30, 2020. The best way to apply is online, the online application is available at https://dpi.wi.gov/open-enrollment during the application period.


The Holy Hill Area School District Board of Education will review enrollment numbers and approve the number of open seats for the 2020-2021 school year at the January board meeting.

Action Items Approved

Illustrative Mathematics 6 - 8: This year, the district has been piloting Illustrative Mathematics at the eighth-grade level. Several site visits to area schools have been conducted, and our coaches and math specialist have been working with our staff to determine what will best meet the needs of our students. After a thorough report and much research, the Board adopted Illustrative Mathematics for grades 6 - 8. Our teachers will be trained in June and full implementation will occur in the fall.


Bridges (Mathematics) at 4K: The Board adopted Illustrative Mathematics at grades 5K - 5 (Elementary Beta) and grades 6 - 8. However, Illustrative Mathematics is not available at the 4K level. Bridges Mathematics is another series based on the conceptual learnings of math which is both interactive and inquiry-based. Bridges will provide our students with a solid foundation for their K - 8 math experience and will allow us to continue our work with the Wisconsin Math Institute.


Youth Art Month Resolution: The School Board unanimously adopted a resolution to support Youth Art Month. This resolution was granted to Ms. Pacetti who in turn sent it to the state of Wisconsin for display.

Click the button above to read about the minimum required immunizations according to the Wisconsin Student Immunization Law.

Holy Hill Area School District recently sent out letters to those parents/guardians of students currently attending the district who have immunizations that are not up to date. It is important that you contact your doctor or local health department to determine if your child needs to update their immunizations. These immunization requirements can be waived for health, religious or personal conviction reasons but the proper waiver documentation must be filled out and turned into the school to ensure the district is meeting the minimum immunization requirements for students attending the district. Below are the immunizations that are recommended for your child depending on his/her age. The district asks that you please update your child’s immunizations as soon as possible. Parents can use the student immunization record form attached https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/forms/f0/f04020l.pdf to update your child’s immunizations or complete the waiver section within this form. The district asks that you please provide a copy of your child’s most recent immunizations or complete the waiver section of the student immunization form to make certain we maintain compliance within the district. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Jodie Dietrich at 262-628-2380.
