Dear ISD 300 families and students, In response to the quickly escalating number of Covid-19 related student and staff absences, La Crescent-Hokah Public Schools (Pre-K through 12th grade) will “pause” in-person instruction effective tomorrow, Friday, January 7, 2022, through Friday, January 14, 2022. Tomorrow, Friday, January 7, will be a non-instructional day for students while all staff report to the buildings to prepare for distance learning for Monday, January 10th-Friday, January 14th. Administration considered a shorter amount of time, but ultimately with the health and safety of students and staff in mind, the decision is to “pause” for a full week. During this “pause,” there will be no activities, practices, childcare, or outside group facility usage. We are extremely hopeful that this six-day pause will enable us to resume in-person learning and regular activities. Health and safety continue to be our top priority, and we understand the hardship this may place on families. Please continue to report your child(ren)’s symptoms and/or Covid-19 test results to the respective school attendance line (507-895-4484, follow prompts). There will be limited testing appointments available for ANY PreK-12th student (free of charge) at the secondary school location during school hours. Please call the secondary attendance line to check availability and get scheduled. Building and/or grade level communication will follow regarding student expectations for this “pause” time period. We appreciate your continued support. Gary Kuphal, Acting Superintendent Steve Smith, Secondary School Principal Josh Mallicoat, Secondary School Assistant Principal/Activities Director Jeff Copp, Elementary School Principal Beth Theede, Community Education Director

Students in AP Stats put theory into practice with a blind taste test project! Using what they've learned about experimental designs, students paired up name-brand and off-brand food items and assessed whether doing the taste test "blind" or not blind had an effect on which item was preferred. This included different brands of soda, cereal, crackers, cookies, and gummy bears!
Last night, the La Crescent Lions Club held a dinner to celebrate their Peace Poster Contest. There were 64 total entries, and the winners were selected by Mr. Phil Addis, local photographer.
