HOME OF THE TIGERS
The mission of the Hayden School District is to promote continuous growth in student achievement by providing the support and tools to create a safe, motivating and enriching academic program which meets diverse educational needs.
Please visit the Food Service Page for information on the Free and Reduced Program and Application.
Kids Eat Free! The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture announced the extension of the free meals for kids aged 0-18 through as late as December 31, 2020. The flexibility allows Hayden School
District to operate the summer food service program, which makes free meals available to all children through the fall months. This unprecedented move will help ensure – no matter what the
situation is on-the-ground – children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic. We began making free meals available to all students who are doing
in-person learning as of August 24th. However, it is still important to complete your free and reduced lunch form that was sent out last week as these forms help provide us with grant funding.
Football! We are excited to be moving forward with our fall football season. Practice officially started on September 24th. CHSAA created our schedules and we have 3 home games and 3
away games scheduled with a potential fourth game in late November. Our first home game is on October 16th. We are still working on ticketing and confirming the number of spectators
allowed. JV and middle school games are still being scheduled. All games will be posted on our district calendar.
Townhall Meeting: We will be hosting our second parent/Community Town Hall meeting on
October 5th. The purpose of these meetings is to have an open discussion, answer any questions that people have, and share information. There is not a set agenda; this will be open dialogue. At this point, we are still needing to offer these meetings via Zoom. Our third meeting is scheduled on Monday, November 2nd.

A huge thank you to all the parents who completed the Marzano Level 1 Survey. We had 97 responses compared to 12 last fall. We have some celebrations and some areas we need to work
on and address. Without your feedback, we can’t reach the desired level of commitment and service to our students and community. At parent teacher conferences, we will be highlighting
areas that will be addressed and will continue to share information through ClassTag which has received positive feedback. Again, thank you!
As we look toward the end of the month, we will be moving into our new building. We are so excited for this opportunity and feel fortunate to have the community support for this. The last
day in our current building will be October 22nd for our students. Students will have the following week off of school as the staff will be working to transition over. School will resume for students on Monday, November 2nd. We are working on details to orient the students to the new building, celebrate the opening, and make sure all safety components are in place. At this point, we are limited on having an open house or ribbon cutting ceremony but are being creative with some other ideas. If you have any thoughts to share, please reach out.
It is such a pleasure to see our students on a daily basis and the dedication of all our staff. We are fortunate to live in such a caring and supporting community.
