Hydaburg Alaska?

My wife and I have been talking with the Hydaburg School District. We have been doing crazy research about the area. I have just found this forum and I was hoping that someone from that area or is knowledgeable of the area could give me more information about what life is like there. We have a 10 year old girl and 12 and 14 year old boys. They are excited about the possible change, but we are concerned that this will be more of a culture shock than they could possibly know.

I'm just going to post questions as they come to me. Maybe, I will get some answers. If not, no problem. So, one thing that just popped into my head is I have heard that four wheelers and boats are very handy on POW. Do I need a lawn mower?

Good luck with the search and about Hydaburg. I, personally, know nothing about it! What type of teacher are you? I think I might have seen you speaking with Mr. Burch at the MN Job Fair this past weekend.

Thank you for the reply. I teach Language Arts and Theater Arts. My wife teaches Special Education. She has spoken with Mr. Birch, but I have not. Unfortunately, we have not been able to attend a Job fair. We currently live in Tennessee, and time and finances hindered us from going.

I don't personally have any first hand knowledge about Hydaburg. Southeast is nice, and has good access to the state ferry system. I'm not sure about a lawnmower, but if you do a real estate search in Google, it'll probably give you a good idea if homes have lawns. ;-) I am pretty sure that others will be more valuable in Hydaburg research than I will.

Also, you'll get more response with specific questions than you will with "what is life like?". It's kind of tough to respond to generic inquiries. Welcome to the ATP Forum, though!
