PTO Survey

Two years ago, the Hudson PTO surveyed parents on meeting times, days, and ideas to promote attendance. We’ve made changes to meet that feedback and wanted to take the opportunity to check in with our parent community again. We have decided to cover a variety of topics in this survey and are always open to improving PTO for our school.  Find the survey here: https://forms.gle/FJkv5WtiMxVnuCAt5

Redistricting Process

Please see the information below from the District regarding the boundary changes:

Over the last several weeks, groups of community members have met with Cooperative Strategies, the district’s consultant for the redistricting process, to provide their thoughts and opinions about how best to redraw elementary school boundary lines. Our next step, as we work through this process, includes a community survey. Please take a moment to complete this important online survey, at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WGSDbounds2021.

The survey will be available until Feb. 9 and is open to all.

Here is the informational presentation about redistricting made to the Board of Education on Saturday: http://www.dejongrichter.com/WGSD/wp-content/uploads/sites/35/2020/01/WGSD_ES_Boundary_Presentation.pdf.

In addition, the public is invited to attend one of the community open house sessions Tues., Jan. 28 and Wed., Jan. 29, where you can view and discuss the preliminary options with the consultants, district administrators, School Board members and members of the community advisory group supporting the redistricting process.

The open houses are scheduled as follows, all of which will be held at the WGSD Service Center, 3232 S. Brentwood Blvd.:

Tuesday, January 28: 7:30 - 9:30 a.m.

Tuesday, January 28: 11:30 - 1:30 p.m.

Tuesday, January 28: 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

 Wednesday, January 29: 7:30 - 9:30 a.m.

Wednesday, January 29: 11:30 - 1:30 p.m.

Wednesday, January 29: 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

 Please plan to attend one of these information sessions and contribute to our decision-making process.
