From Our Superintendent

Dr. David Hornak

Welcome to Holt Public Schools

It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I write to welcome you to Holt Public Schools and our amazing learning community! The Holt Public School District encompasses 32 square miles which include the Village of Dimondale, most of Delhi Township, small portions of Windsor Township, Delta Township and the City of Lansing. The district is comprised of 11 schools: one early learning childhood center, five K-4 elementary schools, two 5-6 schools, one 7-8 junior high school, a 9-12th grade senior high complex with a separate North Campus. Two of our elementary schools operate on a bond calendar. The rest operate on a blended calendar with designated week long breaks approximately every six weeks. Our Early Learning Center offers programs and care for children from infant to preschool age, and Holt Community Education offers child care for K-6 students and enrichment programs for school-aged students through senior citizens.  The faculty and staff of Holt Public Schools are ready to connect with you!

In May of 2021, our voters passed a $148 million bond proposal. Our projects will be phased in over the next eight to nine years ending with a grade reconfiguration.

I have lived and worked in our amazing community for the past 30 years.  My partner Anne and our two children have truly enjoyed the Holt and Dimondale communities and all they have to offer.

I continue to welcome the entire community to our Holt Public Schools family by way of our comprehensive communication plan.  Some of you may access information about our schools through my weekly Peek at the Week email, while others may prefer accessing it via our website, listening to our weekly podcast, or receiving updates via Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Again, I hope you will connect with us using any and all of these means.

Thank you for your interest in Holt Public Schools! I encourage you to tour our website and our schools. I am driven to maximize student learning by promoting positive behaviors.  I am most honored to serve you and embrace the opportunity to celebrate the past and Innovate, Educate, Inspire the future of Holt Public Schools.
