This summer has been busy in the Exira-EHK Community School District buildings. Thank you to all of the community members who voted for our bond last September as we have been doing many upgrades to our buildings and facilities. We will be having an open house for community members once everything is complete. The goal is to have substantial completion by August 17th . Currently, the Exira building is farther along than the Elk Horn building. It has been a process and Derek, Mitch, Kevin, Theresa and the rest of our outstanding custodial crew have done a great job of working around the construction. If you have questions about registrations, the administrative assistants at each building will start on Thursday, August 9th from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. They will be able to answer your questions.

If you need a new registration packet, please call or stop in and we will be happy to help. If you have a question about your schedule, please contact Mrs. Eischeid. Listed below are a few important dates coming up over the next month.
