Carrie Fisher, current assistant principal at Renton Junior High School, has been named as the new principal at Brown Elementary.

The decision was announced Thursday afternoon in a letter sent to families in the Huron School District by Supt. Donovan Rowe.

“Mrs. Fisher has been an educator for over 18 years. She spent 14 years as an elementary education teacher in both the general education and special education classrooms. She has also spent the last 4 years as the assistant principal at Renton Jr. High School, right here in New Boston. Her work within our district has demonstrated her passion for working with students, teachers, parents, and staff. She has shown a dedication to raising student achievement, forming positive relationships, ensuring that students have a safe and productive learning environment. She understands the unique culture within the Huron School District Community, and she is committed to ensuring that Brown Elementary is a great place for students to learn and grow,” Rowe said in the letter.

The principal job was previously awarded to an elementary principal working in a neighboring district who went through the district’s application and hiring process, but decided to back-out of the job last week after previously signing a contract with the district.

After David Thompson was announced as the new principal at Brown Elementary last week, the district said Monday that he has backed out of the position just days after he was approved at an open school board meeting.

In a letter to the community, Supt. Donovan Rowe said that Thompson called the district office on Friday to inform them that he no longer planned to take the position.

Thompson’s decision comes after he signed a contract and was approved as the new principal during the Aug. 20 school board meeting.

Rowe said that the district will hire an interim principal who has decades of experience in school administration, who will lead the school during the district’s search for a new permanent principal.

Back to school reminder: don’t drive foolish around school buses

It’s back to school time for many districts in Michigan, which means the big yellow school buses will be all over the roads soon (FYI: Huron School District’s first day is Tuesday, Sept. 3).

Every year, there are a handful of national news stories reporting on school bus accidents caused by bad drivers.

Let’s take a moment to remind ourselves: don’t drive foolish around school buses.

No matter where you’re rushing to or from, it’s not worth risking the lives of school children.

An illegal passing ticket costs up to $100, with an additional $100 to $500 in fines and up to 100 hours of community service.

Here is a big list of tips from Michigan State Police for drivers as they share the roads with thousands of schools buses daily:

School Bus Safety

School buses are the safest mode of transportation for getting children back and forth to school. Riding in a school bus is safer than walking, riding a bicycle, or being driven to school in private vehicles.

Today’s school buses are built with safety in mind. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, children are protected in large school buses by compartmentalization, a passive occupant protection system.

This provides a protective envelope consisting of strong, closely-spaced seats that have energy-absorbing padded seat backs that help to distribute and reduce crash forces. Compartmentalization is most effective when occupants are fully seated within the bus seat. Seating should be provided that will allow each occupant to sit on a school bus seat without any part of his or her body extending into the aisle.

The majority of bus-related deaths and injuries involve pedestrians-mostly children-who are struck by a bus or injured when they are exiting the bus to cross traffic.

School bus safety tips for drivers:

  • Prepare to stop when a slowing bus has its overhead yellow lights flashing
  • Stop at least 20 feet away for buses when red lights are flashing, unless driving in the opposite direction on a divided highway
  • Slow down in or near school and residential areas
  • Look for clues-such as safety patrols, crossing guards, bicycles, and playgrounds-that indicate children might be in the area
  • Watch for children between parked cars and other objects

School buses are like traffic signals

  • When overhead lights are flashing yellow: Prepare to stop
  • When overhead lights are flashing red: Stop
  • When hazard warning lights are flashing: Proceed with caution

School bus safety tips for students:

  • Always stay in sight of the bus driver
  • Don’t hurry off the bus; check traffic first
  • Don’t go back to the bus after exiting

Video: Freshmen receive warm welcome at Huron High School during orientation

Wednesday was freshmen orientation at Huron High School.

Being a freshman in any school district can be nerve-racking for students.

To ease the transition and help calm some of those nerves, a special warm welcome was presented to this year’s freshman class.

During the orientation, the incoming class was welcomed by a group of their peers at the school known as the “Link Crew.”

Link Crew is a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their high school experience.

Check out a video of the crew welcoming the new students posted to Twitter by Steven Hudock, principal of Huron High School.
