  • Welcome, 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.

  • 2020-21 Registration and Enrollment Information

    We are excited to announce that e-Registration is now open for the 2020-21 school year. While we understand that there are still many unknowns about what the upcoming school year will look like, enrolling and registering students is a crucial step in finalizing multiple details surrounding our unique return to learning this fall.

  • Return-to-Learn Update and School Start Date Considerations

    Today, Governor Kim Reynolds and the Iowa Department of Education provided additional Return-to-Learn guidance for school districts. We are currently working through this guidance to ensure that it aligns with the current direction of our Return-to-Learn work. We intend to provide an update to families and staff early next week after we are able to gather additional clarification surrounding the guidance and what, if any, impact it has on our plans.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (7/22/20)

    Our Return-to-Learn planning and preparations continued this week with a Special Board Meeting last night to discuss our next steps. As we shared last week, the decision was made to begin the school year in an off-site remote learning environment, which was followed by the Governor’s announcement that school districts must begin the school year with at least 50% of learning taking place in-person. While our plan to begin the year off-site does not align with the Governor’s announcement, we stand by our decision and continue to feel this is the safest learning model for our students and staff. Due to this, we will request a waiver from the Iowa Department of Education to begin the year in an off-site learning model. We are currently seeking guidance on the waiver requirements and will keep our families and staff updated on this process.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (7/17/20)

    This morning Governor Kim Reynolds provided new guidance for the reopening of schools in Iowa. As a District, we were surprised by the abrupt timing of this announcement. The Governor specified additional rules and restrictions that were not released in the previous Department of Education guidance that we have been working under to develop our Return-to-Learn plans.
