Welcome to Eau Claire Area School District
Memorial Students
Memorial High School's Teen Literacy Initiative is hosting a World Book Night (WBN) event for the community on April 23rd from 3 pm - 6 pm in the Memorial Library. World Book Night is a celebration of books and reading where free books are given to people who may not have easy access to books or who are not already avid readers.  It is designed to promote the love of reading. Specially printed paperback copies of bestsellers are donated by publishers and authors to be given away at World Book Night events. The club was selected by the World Book Night Committee to be a group book donor for the Eau Claire area since their mission reinforces the motto of WBN: "Spreading the love of reading, person to person."  Read more about this initiative HERE.

Snow Day
With the utilization of four inclement weather days to this point in the school year, the District has surpassed the two allotted days built into the school year calendar for school closings due to weather- related events.  Therefore, the students’ last day of school is now scheduled for June 12th. The last day of work for teaching staff will be June 13th.
