Welcome incoming Hoover students and parents! It is my pleasure to help create a new Hoover community. It is exciting to have students come together from many different schools. We will celebrate our commonalities and learn about what makes us all unique individuals and learners. The current Hoover staff have been planning for this move since hearing of our change. We know we face challenges ahead, but the opportunities are many and our future is bright. We look forward to meeting all our new Hoover Hawks. There will be opportunities coming up before the end of the current school year for us all to meet and plan. As opportunities arise, they will be posted to this page, so stay tuned.

The Iowa City Community School District is proud to present an online tool through which anyone can lookup attendance areas. To determine school attendance areas for a particular location, type that address into the search box in the top left corner. The system will auto-complete possible addresses. When you see the address you are searching for, click it. The map will update to show the elementary, junior high, and high school that location is assigned to. Each school will show a phone number and a link to the school's webpage where you can find more information about that school.
District teacher librarians have compiled a great list of resources for summer reading! From recommended book lists by grade level and links to online books, to area library reading programs, free bus ride to the library, and the current location of the bookmobile, this newsletter has it all.

It goes without saying that this winter has delivered its fair share of inclement weather for our area. It has been quite some time since we have experienced a winter of this magnitude. With that being said, we understand that many of you have questions about how the multiple cancellations, late starts, and early dismissals will impact the end of the school year.
