International Walk to School Day- October 10th

  • Daily physical activity
  • Teaching safe pedestrian and bicycling skills to children
  • Awareness of how walkable and bikeable a community is and where improvements could be made
  • Concern for the environment
  • Reducing traffic congestion, pollution, and speed near schools
  • Sharing time with community leaders, parents, and children

You may pay fees for all of your children who attend the Howard-Suamico School District. You will need to know your child's Student I.D. number. Student IDs were listed on your child's placement email. If you prefer to pay by cash or check, you can remit payment to school with your child.

Importance of School Attendance

If your child will be absent due to an appointment, it is recommended that you attain an excuse from your provider for the date and time of the visit and return the excuse to the school office. This will ensure that the absence is noted as an excused absence or tardy. Appointment cards will NOT be accepted as an excuse.
