    Dear Hood River County School District Students and Families,

    Welcome to a new school year! It really is our privilege to partner with you in the intellectual, social and healthy development of your children. Education is indeed a partnership: together can we make certain that your children get the most out of the excellent educational experiences planned for the upcoming school year and that they are prepared for the world awaiting them after high school graduation. Thank you for putting your trust in the Hood River County School District and allowing us to be your partner in your child’s academic journey.

    Since the adoption of our strategic plan in 2014, we have been highly focused on achieving one powerful, overarching goal: Every student graduates with the knowledge and courage to learn, serve, and pursue their dreams. We are making steady progress towards this lofty goal and the full implementation of the high-leverage, research-based strategies outlined in the enclosed “20/20 Vision.”  Please take some time to read through this comprehensive plan and visit our webpage at to review our progress. I know you’ll be excited about our commitment to continuous improvement, the opportunities for your involvement, and our focus on your child’s success.

  • 10-20-2017 - HRMS Domestic Water Certified Safe To Drink

    The domestic water supply in the main (historic) part of Hood River Middle School has been tested  and certified as safe to drink.  Multiple water samples were collected and evaluated by a third-party laboratory.  The testing results were also shared with the Hood River County Health Department.   

    We will turn on the domestic water system this weekend and students will be able to drink and use the water throughout the Hood River Middle School campus on Monday.  We appreciate your patience as the School District conducted a thorough remediation and water certification process to ensure student and staff safety.  Please contact 541-387-5013 if you have specific questions.  

    El suministro de agua doméstica en la parte principal (histórica) de la Escuela Secundaria de Hood River ha sido probado y certificado como seguro para beber. Múltiples muestras de agua fueron recolectadas y evaluadas por un laboratorio externo. Los resultados de las pruebas también se compartieron con el Departamento de Salud del Condado de Hood River.

    Vamos a encender el sistema de agua doméstico este fin de semana y los estudiantes podrán beber y usar el agua en todo el campus de la Escuela Secundaria de Hood River el lunes. Agradecemos su paciencia mientras que el Distrito Escolar llevó a cabo un proceso completo de remediación y certificación de agua para asegurar la seguridad de los estudiantes y el personal.
