Family Resources

Notes from the Nurse

Hello Hawks! A little over a week ago our health office sent home notices to families if their student/s were not compliant with shots. This means your child is missing one or more required vaccination. For the required vaccinations, you have until 10/27 to get these taken care of before the students will not be allowed to re-enter school. These are regular vaccinations that they receive throughout their schooling, NOT COVID-19 related. Below are some locations where you can get the vaccinations taken care of for free or a sliding fee. Please also see the list of locations in the attachment below.

Please call Ms. Lena with questions, 651-888-7637.



1. Student Placement center 651-632-3763 call for appointments

Nutrition Services Update

Last week we explained that all students must have their iUpdate portal completed and this includes the Free and Reduced Meal Application "FRAM". Currently ALL of our students are receiving FREE lunch but filling out the form is still a requirement. Our school is at risk of losing this invaluable service if we cannot get the forms filled out. PLEASE take the time to update your student's portal and make sure you have filled out the form for this year.


Updating your information in iUpdate will ensure that you receive proper services, eligible transportation and important communications by U.S. mail, phone, email or text. Families will receive phone calls and text message reminders to complete iUpdate. One parent or guardian from each primary household is expected to complete iUpdate. If your phone, email or address have changed you can login and update this information from your home phone or computer. If you need assistance or just want to update personal information feel free to contact our office and we will gladly assist you. We want to make sure as parents and family members you are getting all of our communications and you know what's happening in school.


If you prefer a paper version, it is available below and can be printed. If you cannot print at home, we can make this available and your student can request it.

Parent Teacher Organization and Site Council

Humboldt PTO will be holding a special meeting tomorrow to discuss FUNDRAISING and ways to grow our parent support. Currently PTO is responsible for the majority of the fundraising and materials that are used for our Senior All-Night event. There are many generous companies that have helped in the past but we have been unable to hold the event for TWO years due to covid and donors have not reached out to us. WE NEED YOUR HELP. Humboldt is seeking more parents, especially SENIOR parents that want to help us for the remainder of the year to prepare for this party.


We will discuss ideas and make a plan of action. If you know of any businesses that would like to donate or you have a business that is able to help us, please let us know as soon as possible. We are open to any ideas and would like to hear from all of you! Please join us tomorrow, Monday October 18th at 6PM. Let's work to give our school and seniors THE BEST.

Monday, Oct. 18th, 6-7pm

30 Baker Street East

H Town!

Humboldt Football has experienced some growing pains over the last few years but it's safe to say, the PATIENCE and hard work paid off! This year our Hawks merged with Harding whose program was also struggling to have enough players and we combined to create the emerging powerhouse that is H TOWN and affectionately known by players and school staff as KnightHawks! Although the name is not "Official" it's what the team refers to themself as and it's a symbol of a great combination of two great programs. They will play their last home game this week at home, Bakken Field. Click below to see a great piece about the teams coming together.
