Dear Huron Families:

Early last week, legislators in Lansing released a proposal outlining suggested “Return to Learn guidelines for next school year. In addition, the Governor’s Educational Advisory Council will be releasing their “Return to Learn” planning guidelines on June 30, 2020.

We are pleased to see lawmakers in Lansing actively working to advocate for much-needed school funding, and a commitment to a safe reopening in the fall. The legislation released last week is a good start, and we are looking forward to seeing further details of the Governor’s plan this week.

As I have stated in previous communications, the Huron School District is planning for various educational scenarios and situations that we might face in the fall. Our plans include provisions for inperson instruction as well as remote learning options for students. We are committed to providing our students with a safe and purposeful learning environment for the 2020-2021 school year.

We are continuing to monitor communications shared with us from the CDC and Wayne County Health Department related to our return to learning in the fall. We will be keeping a close eye on the “Return to Learn” planning information coming out of Lansing, and we will be adjusting our plan based on provisions outlined in the new guidelines.

Thank you for your support as we work on our plans for next school year. Enjoy the summer.

A 2020-2021 Huron School District Calendar is now available on the district's calendar page. Events will also be posted directly to the district's calendar and available in upcoming events. The print calendar and a PDF of version will be available prior to the start of the school year.

Correction: The calendar previosuly listed June 11th as the last school day by mistake. The last school day is June 10. We apoligize for any confusion.

The 2019-2020 instructional year is drawing to a close. This has been one of the strangest school years I have seen in my 21 years in education. Nonetheless, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your patience and cooperation during our school closure and during the implementation of our Continuity of Learning Plan. I love the way our community pulls together and works as a team, and I am proud of our students, parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff.

We are entering our last week of learning in the 2019-2020 school year, and our summer break is about to begin. Teachers and students are wrapping up our learning activities, and buildings have put together plans to collect the remaining Chromebook devices before the summer break. As summer approaches, we have begun to see some of the governmental restrictions lifted, including the lifting of the stay home/stay safe order and the resumption of commerce for some restaurants and businesses. On June 1, 2020 Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-110. Under this order, we were provided guidelines relevant to summer programs and athletic training for fall. Executive Order 2020-110 permits indoor gatherings and events of fewer than 10 people, and outdoor gatherings and events are permitted so long as people maintain six feet of distance from one another and the assemblage consists of no more than 100 people.

As we begin to think about summer, I wanted to remind you that the Huron School District has already started thinking about, and planning for, next school year. Our first day with students for the 2020-2021 school year is scheduled for August 31, 2020. Please keep this in mind as you are planning for the summer. The full calendar is available on the school district website.

Although there are still many questions in the state pertaining to the 2020-2021 school year, the Huron School District has begun planning for different scenarios and situations that we may face in the fall. As always, health and safety are our primary concern. We have purchased new sanitation stations and equipment that we are installing within all of our school buildings that will help to ensure a clean and safe environment. We have also created the Huron School District Re-Entry Task Force, focused on planning for the student and staff return in the fall. The task force is working on plans to ensure safe, efficient, and purposeful operations in the fall. The task force is focused on planning and designing models for health and safety protocols, cleaning and sanitation, student instructional delivery, facilities and operations, transportation, sports and extracurricular activities, communication, and budgetary considerations. We continue to closely monitor the recommendations from the CDC, Wayne County Health Department, the Michigan Department of Education, and the Governor’s Office. No matter what situation we are faced with, we will be ready to provide our students with a safe and purposeful learning environment for the 2020-2021 school year.

In addition to our Huron task force, Downriver districts and others across Wayne County are collaborating to share ideas and develop consistency in programming. As you can imagine, this is a challenging task, and we will continue to work hard to develop a safe, flexible plan to address the collective needs of our students. You are worth our best efforts.

You may have also noticed that we have begun construction on our athletic field renovation and track/event area replacement. We are also poised to begin the renovations at Renton Jr. High School, as well as to start the construction on the new Early Childhood Center. Check out our bond issue update page on our school website to view renderings of the projects and to view updates about the construction process.

Thank you for your support as we work through this challenging situation. Enjoy the final week of “school” and have a safe, happy summer.
