April 3, 2020
Due to the recent announcement from our governor regarding our stay at home order, the following information is important as we navigate through these challenging times. Just in case you didn’t hear the new order, schools have been shut down until May 1, 2020. That puts an estimated return date of Monday May 4, 2020. However, as we all have seen over the past month, many uncertainties still exist and we certainly can’t predict the future. Our goal here at Huntington hasn’t changed, providing your child with quality educational opportunities and nutritional meals will remain our focus as a staff. There isn’t enough gratitude we can give to our staff for their ability to adapt and serve you from home. As a coworker in this district, I cannot be more proud of the way our team has responded. Thank you staff for your continued efforts to provide. Once again, thank you to our community and students for your patience during this time and your work completed at home. We believe these opportunities provided will continue to enrich your education and strengthen your foundational skills.
