School Makeup Days - February 18 and March 26
Over the course of the last few weeks we have cancelled school on three days. There have been many questions about what the school will be doing in regards to make up days.
Due to extra hours built into our school day, students will only be making up 1 of the two days. According to the school calendar the established makeup days will be February 18 and March 26.

Building Bond Referendum, Operating Levy and School Board Results
On November 6th, 2018, residents voted to allow Holdingford Public Schools to issue building bonds to address space needs, aging infrastructure, safety, security, and site-related needs as well as improvements for our technology equipment and infrastructure. Holdingford Public Schools would like to thank our residents for supporting our students, staff, and schools by passing this referendum. This project will allow our District to address physical facility needs and better meet the changing needs of educational and instructional programs through updated technology.
Now that the referendum has been approved, we will begin the design process and set construction timelines with the input of our community. We thank everyone that was actively involved throughout this important process for the needs of our Holdingford students, and we look forward to the future of our District with your support.
