If your child has a Health Management Plan (HMP), please review the letter that is linked below.

Ladd Acres campus will be closed for the summer due to construction. You can check out the progress of our new gym via the Webcam Link.

If you need help with on-line registration, you can come by the school anytime.

There are two exceptions to on line registration.

Have you had the chance to check out our new community ASTRO website? If not, check it out here: https://sites.google.com/hsd.k12.or.us/our-astro-stars/home! This website is a fun space designed to help connect us all during comprehensive distance learning. Students can send a photo or video to share a new scientific discovery, short film, creative writing, art project, Covid- friendly adventures, book or game reviews, cooking/baking recipe, funny jokes, Lego creations, musical talents, pets, athletic talent, or something else that comes to mind. Submissions to the website must be sent to Teri Dunlop at dunlopt@hsd.k12.or.us.

Note: the website is only accessible through an HSD student account. Winter break is a great time to create something to share and don’t forget to check back frequently for new submissions! We can’t wait to see what you have to share!
