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.

Sincerly,

Donovan Rowe
Superintendent of Schools
Huron School District

Thanks to all of Huron's teachers for doing an incredible job and to all the students and families that have shown their support this week!

2020 Teacher Appreciation Week

Posted by admin  On May 08, 2020 at 2:49 PM
  

Attention Huron Families:

In the first week of April, Governor Whitmer signed an executive order which closed all school buildings for the rest of the 20192020 school year.  This same executive order mandated that instruction take place using “remote learning” options for the remainder of the school year. Remote Learning is learning that happens outside of the traditional classroom because the student and teacher are separated by distance and/or time. Remote learning can be real-time or flexibility timed, and it may or may not involve technology. It cannot be assumed that every family or every student has access to the necessary devices and appropriate internet connection at their home.

In order to help parents and students navigate remote learning options during the school building closure, the Huron School District has developed the new Huron Learning Hub.  The Huron Learning Hub can be accessed through the Huron School District Website at huronschools.org, beginning on Monday, April 20, 2020.  Parents will be able to view weekly learning schedules based on the grade levels of their students, and parents will be able to contact teachers and link to instructional sites from this platform.  Students will find ways to connect with teachers, log-in to Google Classroom sites for instruction, and explore content and resources.

Teachers will be communicating with students and parents through our school managed student Google Suite Accounts as well as classroom text applications, such as remind.  Students without internet availability will be provided with “hard copy” packets upon request, which will allow students to work without the use of the internet.  As part of the remote learning efforts, all students are required to participate in at-home learning for the remainder of the school year. This will give students opportunities to earn credit and make steady progress in preparation for next school year.

The Huron School District has completed a “Continuity of Learning Plan” that outlines the District’s efforts to provide remote learning options to students.  The plan follows a model that is consistent with the Huron School District’s strategic plan, providing instruction that stresses rigor, relevance, and relationships for all students.  This plan has been submitted to Wayne County RESA for approval.  Once approved, this document will be posted on the Huron School District website.

We are aware that some homes are not equipped with internet connectivity and/or internet capable devices. The Huron School District is working to provide internet connectivity options for families without internet at home.  We have also developed options for parents to sign-out a device for student use at home, in households where a need is present.

I know that parents with Senior level students have questions related to graduation, prom, and other senior activities.  I want you to know that we are monitoring the Stay Home/Stay Safe guidelines carefully, and we are considering all available options in order to celebrate our Senior students. We will be publishing more information about our seniors in subsequent communications and when more information becomes available.

The remainder of this mailing contains information regarding grade level learning schedules, daily learning timelines, Google Suite log-in information, updating parent contact information in MiStar, low cost internet connectivity options, calendar updates, free internet access at Huron High School, emotional support hotline information, and student grading information.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding as we finalize our remote learning plans.  I am proud of our staff and community, and I am looking forward to our remote learning launch on April 20, 2020.  As always, feel free to contact us if you have questions.   Have a great day, and stay safe out there. 
Sincerely,

Donovan Rowe
Superintendent of Schools,
Huron School District.
