Census 2020

This year, the U.S. Census Bureau will conduct the 2020 Census to count everyone living in the country. A complete and accurate count is critical to school districts, including Howland Local Schools. Census data directly affect how the federal government allocates more than $675 billion every year to communities for programs and services like Title 1, special education, school lunches, after school programs, Head Start, and more.

Updated Coronavirus Information

This is the time of year when we see an increase in children who are coughing, sneezing and exhibiting other symptoms, typical during cold and flu season.

Although we are being assured that Americans have a low risk of exposure to the virus, we are taking a number of precautions.
