November Attendance Update
We believe in positive school attendance, knowing that attending school has a huge impact on a student's academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school.  Parents/Caregivers/Guardians play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and on the job.  Research proves that if a student is not in school (excused or unexcused), these absences have a major impact on their educational progress. 

We appreciate your support encouraging regular attendance at school.  

This year we have been tracking monthly attendance data and comparing to the previous year.   We will share this in the update each month.

Our average daily attendance rate is consistent when compared to this time last year. 

We do, however, have 3 more students enrolled in grades 7-12 than we did a year ago at this time.

Weather Alerts, School Delays, and Closures
As we move into the winter weather season, keeping informed about weather conditions and school closures is a priority. If road conditions are in question, we will always start with a 2-hour delay. The two-hour late start gives us time to completely evaluate the situation. The goal is to have "2 hour late starts" announced prior to 6:00 a.m.  

How will this be communicated? You have several options:
Twitter at #2020HowardWinn (Instantly know!)
School Messenger: This is an option you can subscribe to in PowerSchool. It will give you the option to receive an email, text message or voice mail to your phone. You may call the office at the high school office if you have questions (563-547-2764).

IOWA SCHOOL ALERTS HAS CHANGED: If you used to receive notification in the past please sign up with the new system 

Go to: to subscribe.

NICC Classes:

If classes are canceled at Howard-Winn they are also canceled at NICC - Cresco Center.

If we have a 2-hour delay, NICC classes that are scheduled to start before 10:00 AM will be canceled.  Those classes that are scheduled to start after 10:00 AM will be held as scheduled.

Area TV and Radio stations will also be notified. Please note that if you use a text service from a TV station it may be as much as 30 minutes lag time from when they post it and when it is announced on Social Media.
