Procedure for Picking up your Child at School

The following procedures are ways in which you can help with the safety and security of all children within our building.  Recall that door locks and a camera system were installed in the entry way at the beginning of the school year. We ask parents and visitors to report to the office upon arriving at school. Your child will either be waiting for you in the office based upon a prior note or phone call informing the school of an appointment, or secretaries will call your child's teacher asking them to send your child to the office to meet you. Please report to the office rather than reporting directly to the classroom.
After school, the best option is waiting outside to meet your child.  The exception would be that kindergarten students are often met by parents or siblings.  Parents and siblings that are picking up students older than kindergarten are being asked to wait in the cafeteria, allowing teachers to get students ready for dismissal, and then students will walk to the cafeteria to meet you.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Cadets for a Cause
Hello Everyone,

We just wanted to start the holiday season off right by letting you know that we will be having jean week again this year.  The cost will be 10$ and you may wear jeans the week of Monday, the 16th of December until Friday, the 20th of December.  Remember, all proceeds will go to support Howard-Winn families this holiday season.

In addition to this tradition, you will notice "Cadets for a Clause" notes placed in your mailbox this week or the beginning of next week.  The note is a collaboration district-wide to collect monetary donations to assist families in our school district this year too.  This collection will be from the students and will be added to what is collected from jean week. The addition of student involvement will promote a climate of caring between students, staff, and our communities.  There will be a collection bucket at each elementary building, but at Elma and Lime Springs I will be bringing a bucket out to collect money.

Any questions please contact the Guidance Dept. or Paula Galvin (Paula and Riley are helping with collections at the Elementary, Jr. High, and High School).

Happy Holidays,
Tiffany McCabe 

From the School Nurse...

Please remember that due to students having severe allergies in our school that Crestwood Elementary/JH are NUT-FREE SCHOOLS.  This means no products that contain nuts of any kind are permitted to be sent to school. 
Cold and flu season are upon us and in full swing.  Please remember to use good handwashing, get flu shots, and stay home if you are sick.  School policy states that students must be vomit and fever free for at least 24 hours before returning to school (without using medication to lower fever).  
Thank you for keeping our kids healthy!

Giving Thanks...

  • I am thankful to live in a nation that is committed to educating every child.  In some countries, education is only for children with defined abilities or the money to pay for the education.  We live in a country that believes that everyone should have access to education, which opens the doors to success and opportunity.  
  • It is exciting to serve the Howard-Winneshiek Community School District's educational community, working with dedicated staff and students on a daily basis to provide daily opportunities for children in the district.
  • May everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving.  Take a moment to relax with those in your lives and refresh a bit during the extended weekend.
