Dear Huron Families,
Per the direction of Governor Whitmer, ALL SCHOOLS IN THE HURON SCHOOL DISTRICT WILL BE CLOSED, STARTING MONDAY, MARCH 16. SCHOOLS IN THE HURON SCHOOL DISTRICT WILL REMAIN CLOSED THROUGH OUR SPRING RECESS, FRIDAY, APRIL 10, with classes scheduled to resume on Monday, April 13.
In the coming days, as we receive guidance from the governor and the Michigan Department of Education, I will be working with our staff on plans for continuation of various services, to the best of our ability. You can expect continued communications from the District in the days and weeks ahead.
I have met with our food service director, and we are coordinating our efforts with the Michigan Department of Education pertaining to food service.
Going forward, we will continue to make decisions regarding school and school-related activities based on the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Wayne County Health Department, and the Michigan Department of Education.
As always, I thank you for your support of the Huron School District. Together, we will continue to do our best to provide for safe and secure learning.
