Superintendent's Message

    Greetings Hood River County School District families and welcome to a new school year!  


    As I write to you, many of your children are practicing on sports fields with their coaches, participating in one or more of our varied and comprehensive Community Education programs, or learning in a district summer school session; and, hopefully everyone is taking advantage of all that there is to enjoy throughout beautiful Hood River County.  


    The first day of school is just around the corner (on September 8) and your children will soon be stepping onto school buses, walking through our school doors and into our classrooms, gyms, auditoriums and cafeterias. Here in the school district, support staff have been working hard to get our curriculum organized, buses tuned up, and our schools and classrooms cleaned and ready for students.  


    As I reflect on the 2014-15 school year, I feel so proud of the work accomplished between educators and students. Last year,
