Message from the Office

Winter is here, and the season can be extreme. Students are expected to attend school every day and on time unless the district declares a e-learning day due to extreme winter weather conditions.

For more information you can access the winter weather plan here.



Parents and families, it's almost time for conferences and we look forward to seeing you and your students. Conferences are IN-PERSON ONLY, at Humboldt in your teacher's classroom. We will not have appointments so please plan accordingly if you plan to meet with all of your teachers. We will have interpreters available upon request and our staff are able to connect with on-call interpreters if someone is not available at the time of your meeting. As always, our staff and teachers will do our best to accommodate each family and make sure that you have time to meet regarding any concerns you may have. If you are not able to make it in-person on December 15, please contact your teachers and see if they have an alternative option to meet.

Help the Hawks

Most teachers spend hundreds of their own dollars each year on supplies and materials for their classrooms. This doesn't even include treats or fun opportunities for their classes. Help a teacher out by adopting their classroom.

Music Department Invites You

The Humboldt music department band and choir winter concert will be Wednesday, December 14th at 6 PM in the Humboldt auditorium.

Admission is free. We hope you can join us!

Humboldt Debate

We are pleased to share the success of our debate team. It is a small team but they are impressing not only their coaches but the leaders of the Urban Debate League! Admin received a wonderful email full of praise for our team and coaches. Here are the highlights;

Hello from the Minnesota Urban Debate League! We are writing to share the results of the UMBrooks Debate Tournament that took place this past weekend, hosted by the University of Minnesota...Coaches Zach Miller, Colman Smith, and Reies Romero are building momentum as Humboldt prepares for the final tournaments of the season.

Humboldt novices continue to show the competition they aren’t to be trifled with. Congratulations to Halina Kargar, Rawan Sulaman, and Jayda Draughn for placing 11th in the Novice A division. This is especially impressive because their scores as speakers won them a higher place than several other partnerships with the same win-loss record!"

Humboldt students continue to shine and put our school on the map. Coaches and team, we are so proud of you and your growing success!
