COVID-19 Update to Huron Families 3/16/2020 Education Resources and Enrichment Opportunities 

Attention Huron Families,

I would like to take a moment to say thank you to all of you for your patience and cooperation during this turbulent time. Attempting to communicate during an ever-changing crisis presents us with many obstacles; nevertheless, our students, parents, and staff have pulled together in an amazing way.

I am sending this letter in order to give you some guidance pertaining to educational resources and enrichment opportunities that we are making available to help students keep their minds sharp during our school closure. In addition, I will also attempt to provide other information that may be useful to you.

Obviously, we are unable to replicate classroom instruction during a prolonged school closure, and online instruction does not provide students with a seamless option for learning. Instead, our teachers are preparing a list of resources and enrichment opportunities that will help support students as they attempt to stay engaged and maintain skills during this time. You should receive communication from your student’s classroom teacher(s) by the end of the day tomorrow, March 17 with information regarding these resources and enrichment opportunities. Teachers will be using school email addresses and other platforms, such as classroom dojo, Remind, & Google Classroom in order to communicate. Please be sure to check your usual means of communication in order to communicate with your student’s teacher(s).

We are coordinating efforts at the district level, but different grade levels will have different forms of communication. For example, High School and Jr. High School aged students may receive emails and communications directly from teachers, but elementary communications will be provided primarily between parents and teachers. Although these communications may look slightly

different, teachers and administrators are working hard to provide consistent and coordinated communications at each level. Consequently, you should expect to have weekly communication with your student’s teacher(s) during our closure. The end of the 2nd trimester was Friday, March 13, and report cards will be mailed home. You should expect to receive them at some point next week.

Some parents have medications on file in our school offices. These medications can be picked up Tuesday, March 17 and Wednesday, March 18 from the office of your student’s school.

In addition, our Elementary schools are opening their buildings in order to provide parents with an opportunity to pick up classroom materials and items from their student’s locker. In order to limit the amount of individuals in the building at one time, we are asking that only one adult individual from each family come to the school, and we are posting times for parents to arrive based on their student’s grade levels. If you have students in multiple grade levels, we are asking that you choose one of the windows to pick up all necessary items for your child.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Kindergarten – Grade 2: 9:00 – 11:00 AM, Tuesday, March 17 & Wednesday, March 18, 2020
  • Grade 3 – Grade 5: 1:00 – 3:00 PM, Tuesday, March 17 & Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. Please contact your student’s school office if you have questions pertaining to report cards, resources, or enrichment opportunities.

Sincerely,
Donovan Rowe
Superintendent of Schools
Huron School District
