District Decision and Appeals Process
Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community,
The District Administration has developed a District Decision and Appeals Process that we believe will help all of us strengthen our communication, and help students, staff, parents, and community navigate the District's system more easily.  The process was initially developed by your District Leadership Team, and then reviewed and endorsed by the Board of Education.  The District Leadership Team will continue to update the Process periodically.   A few, brief notes about the Process are in order.
  • Attached, you will find the Purposes and Guide for the Process.
  • Next, you will find the District Decision and Appeals Process.  The far left column, Areas, lists the items about which you may need to make a contact.  The remaining columns (Initial Contact, First Level Appeal, etc.) are the people you should contact - in order from left to right - to help you.  Please follow the order given.
  • The last page is the list of Descriptors/Definitions which define the terms used in the Areas (far left) column of the Process.  That should help, too.
Please let us know your thoughts and suggestions about how to improve the Process.  You should communicate with your Principal, Dan Dobner, or you may contact me directly...
Thank you for the support of our students and staff. 
Attila J. Weninger, Ph.D., Superintendent

Health Minute
The end of the year is fast approaching and some parents may be starting to think of next year already with sports physicals or other doctor exams over the summer.  If your child has a health condition that the school needs to know about such as asthma, severe allergies, etc., please click on the link and print the form for an Individualized Healthcare Plan and take it with you if you have an upcoming appointment.  Every student who carries an inhaler or an Epi-Pen, needs a Healthcare Plan on file signed by the parents and doctor, these need to be done on a yearly basis.  I have also added links for the prescription medication card for the parents and doctor to sign.  Students can carry over-the-counter medications at school with a signed permission slip from their parents and with the medication in the original packaging (no pills in bags.)  These forms will be collected on the registration days in August or can be mailed or faxed back to my office by the first day of school.  fax  262-673-8943

Some News from Activities & Athletics
Hartford Union Wins Chippy Match vs. Slinger
Slinger called upon bench players and a couple of junior varsity players Thursday To say the Owls girls were shorthanded would be an understatement, if one asked coach Ryan Desmond.  Slinger fell to rival Hartford Union on the pitch, 3-1, during a Wisconsin Little Ten match. It was a game that saw 25 fouls called, with 16 against the Orioles, and handful of Slinger players leave with various injuries. "That's a lot of fouls," Hartford coach Kevin Martin said, adding that his team has never been called for that many. "But it was because everyone was battling for the ball."  No Hartford players left the game with known injuries.  "There's no way to compete in a game when the safety of the players is not taken into consideration," Desmond said.  The Orioles (12-5-1, 5-1 WLT) got on the scoreboard first with a goal in the 13th minute. In a crowd, Megan Zickert found Madeline Hoxworth in the middle of the field, and Hoxworth sent a shot around Slinger goalkeeper Lexi Bullis.  "(Madeline) was working so hard and was able to come off the ball,"  Martin said.

Track & Field - Hartford Invite Results 
The Hartford boys were led by Jack Johnson and Quinn Meinerz. Johnson won the pole vault (14-1), while Meinerz placed first in the shot put (49-7). Meinerz also placed third in the discus (129-3).  CJ Chiefe was second in the 100 (11.67) and 200 dash (23.4), while Ryan Zuern placed second in the triple jump (39-3).  The Orioles took third in the 800 (1:37.97) and 3,200 relay (9:39.1).  For the girls, Alyx Evans second in the 800 run (2:28.95) and Courtney Kind placed second in the 1,600 run (5:38.08).

Boys Tennis Results 
Comeback kids: Hartford tennis beats West, 4-3
A smile crept across Andy Tiefenthaler's face. The senior chuckled. "It was so stressful," Tiefenthaler said. "Kevin (Kreuser) always wins ... he wears out his opponent - that match was probably three hours long. "Leave it to Kevin to pull out a win like that. He just wears down an opponent until they are done, and it's great." Kreuser's three-set victory Tuesday at No. 4 singles helped Hartford Union erase a one-match deficit and claim a 4-3 Wisconsin Little Ten victory at West Bend West. The Orioles (4-2 in WLT duals, 22-20 in total scores) saw the No. 2 doubles team of Kris Bender and Tiefenthaler also collect a three-set win to knot the contest at 3-3 as Kreuser's match played out. "We needed them both, definitely," coach Andy Andress said. "And we still might not be seeded higher than fifth (in the final conference standings)."  Click  here to read full article

Wisconsin Little Ten Match:
The fourth time was the charm Friday for both teams - the Wisconsin Little Ten match was postponed three previous times. Tanner Brault and Matt Melsheimer won at No. 1 doubles won, 7-5, 6-3 to collect one of the Orioles' two wins. Kevin Kreuser also won his No. 4 singles match, 6-2, 6-3. Coach Andy Andress noted those wins pulled Hartford within a 3-2 team score, and Michael Fulop (No. 3 singles) was up 2-1 in the third set. Fulop fell, 6-4, in the third and lost the match, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. The No. 3 doubles team of Gabe Hoffmann and Nathan Melsheimer were up 5-2 in the second set, but lost 7-5. They lost the match, 6-4, 7-5, "After playing a hard fought match yesterday we couldn't quite come up with the necessary shots on a consistent basis to secure a victory," Hartford coach Andy Andress said. "Unfortunately neither spot was able to hold their lead and we dropped a difficult loss. "Our fight wasn't bad, we just couldn't land the knockout punch when and where we needed to.".

Boys Baseball Beats Catholic Memorial 5-2
Signature wins often do much for teams. Coach Eric Vanden Acker hopes  Wednesday's aids his heading into the postseason.
Trailing 2-1, the Orioles (7-12) opened the bottom of the sixth with a Scott Savage single.
Vanden Acker had both Griff Lukes and Jake Savana lay down consecutive sacrifice bunts, and both reached base on throwing errors to load the bases.
Nick Vogel's single drove in Savage for a 2-2 tie.
Garrett Thomas followed with an eight-pitch walk that drove in Lukes for a 3-2 lead.
Then Jacob Bickert smacked a two-run single to plate Savana and Vogel for the three-run edge. Hartford's excellence continued in the top of the seventh, as Austin Brewer shut the Crusaders down to earn the complete-game victory. He scattered five hits and two earned runs, and struck out three.
Savage was 2 for 3 with a run, while Vogel (1 for 2, RBI, R, BB), Bickert (1 for 3, 2 RBI) and Cody Guetzke (1 for 3, R, BB) all singled.
