Hillsboro Students, Parents, and Community, Missouri Governor Mike Parson just announced in the Thursday, April 9th press briefing that all Missouri public and charter schools shall remain closed through this school year due to the COVID-19 virus. While we anticipated that this day may come, we held out hope that our students would be able to return to their school buildings again during the 2019-2020 school year, unfortunately, that will not be a reality. The buildings will be closed for the remainder of the year; however, the district will continue to proceed as we planned by staying connected to our students and community. We are committed to continue to provide services such as much-needed meals to the students and additional educational opportunities. The administration, teachers, and staff are committed to continuing our important work with and for our students through the last day of school, May 27, 2020. Your child’s school will be reaching out next week to share our plan for continued learning through the end of May. We know that the Governor’s announcement will create a number of new questions about specific issues such as: grading, graduation, prom, athletics, and summer school. The district will be working to continue to navigate those issues and will provide information and details when they have been finalized. We would like to thank the entire Hillsboro School Community for your patience and hardwork during the last few weeks and for what is to come in the foreseeable future. Together - we will all get through this. We are #hawkstrong. Stay safe and healthy, Dr. Jon Isaacson Superintendent https://5il.co/exs9

On March 23, 2018 twenty-three students from the Elementary and twenty-one students from the Intermediate attended a special reward field trip to Hannibal, Missouri. In order to be eligible to attend the field trip, students had to read at least four of this year’s Mark Twain Nominees (students in grades 4-6) or four of this year’s Truman Nominees (students in grades 6). While in Hannibal, the students visited many educational sites. They took a self-guided tour of the Mark Twain Boyhood Home & Museum Complex where they learned about the friends who inspired the characters in some of Twain’s books. They went on a guided tour on the Hannibal Trolley where they were treated to a history of Hannibal. They took a guided tour of the Mark Twain Cave – the oldest show cave in Missouri. Lastly, they visited the Hannibal History Museum where they were able to see many interactive exhibits and view several dioramas depicting different scenes from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Although it was cold and windy, everyone had a wonderful time. The books winning the Mark Twain Award and the Truman Award are chosen by students throughout the state of Missouri who read the minimum number required. Winners will be announced on April 16, 2018.

January 29, 2018 Dear elementary parents and guardians, As many of you already know, we are having an especially bad influenza season this year. The warmer weather we’ve had in the past few days has been nice, but it doesn’t mean that flu season is over. We are still hearing about many cases of influenza in the community, including some of our students. We are writing today to ask you to please monitor your child for signs and symptoms and if you think they might be getting ill, PLEASE keep them at home. Symptoms of the flu include upper respiratory type symptoms, including a cough, headache, fever, body ache, runny/stuffy nose with a sudden onset. We want your children to be here at school; happy, healthy and ready to learn! Thank you for your cooperation in the matter. Sincerely, Jessica Mayer RN, BSN Elementary School Nurse 636-789-0048 The following is from the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/... Person to Person People with flu can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away. Most experts think that flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Less often, a person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose. To avoid this, people should stay away from sick people and stay home if sick. It also is important to wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub. Linens, eating utensils, and dishes belonging to those who are sick should not be shared without washing thoroughly first. Eating utensils can be washed either in a dishwasher or by hand with water and soap and do not need to be cleaned separately. Further, frequently touched surfaces should be cleaned and disinfected at home, work and school, especially if someone is ill. The Flu Is Contagious Most healthy adults may be able to infect other people beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. Children may pass the virus for longer than 7 days. Symptoms start 1 to 4 days after the virus enters the body. That means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. Some people can be infected with the flu virus but have no symptoms. During this time, those persons may still spread the virus to others.
