Hello Members of the HBSD Learning Community!


We are excited to share a DRAFT of the 2016-2017 school year calendar with you. You will notice a few significant differences between the draft calendar and our 2015-2016 calendar:

  • the start date for students is later;
  • 8 inservice days are scheduled, because we will not continue the Thursday early releases;
  • the October inservice dates are scheduled to allow us to be gracious hosts for the Southeast Alaska Honor Music Festival;

Please feel free to forward thoughts/comments to Principal, Rene’ Martin at rmartin@hbsd.net.


Finally, thank you to everyone for completing the survey about our daily bell schedule. If you did comment about the school year calendar - we will add your comments to that discussion. We will go back to an appx. 8:25 start time and 3:15 end time (3:00 for kindergarten). We will not have the early release day. There are so many pieces to our puzzle that have to be considered to meet our student needs. Thank you again for working with us as we develop a calendar and schedule that is best for our learning community!
