Welcome To Huron City Schools School Year 2013-2014!
News & Events
Ms. Schwiefert is the current interim treasurer for Norwalk City Schools and former treasurer for North Point. She will serve in Huron at least two days a week while maintaining her role in Norwalk. Huron is fortunate to have someone with Ms. Schwiefert’s knowledge of school finance and experience serve as interim while the board completes their search for a permanent treasurer. The Huron School Board intends to hire a permanent treasurer during their May 28th board meeting.
Dear Parents and Guardians:
As we transition to spring the discussion begins to focus on make-up days. The winter of 2014 was like no other. A majority of school districts around the state closed due to inclement weather well beyond the five allotted days. Huron City Schools used a total of fourteen calamity days.The governor recently signed House Bill 416, providing school districts with allowable options for make-up days.
A joint conference committee made up of members from the Ohio House of Representatives and Ohio Senate agreed to provide school districts with four additional calamity days, only after districts have used four of their required contingency plan days. The three Blizzard Bag days we recently implemented meet three of the four contingency days required by law. The end result is Huron City Schools will have two additional days at the end of the year. Our two make-up days will occur on Friday, May 30, 2014 and Monday, June 2, 2014.
The entire Huron City Schools faculty and staff appreciate your patience throughout this challenging winter. If you have any questions regarding make up days, feel free to contact my office, 419-433-1234, ext 5000 or email me at email@example.com.

A Message From Huron City Schools Superintendent Dennis Muratori:
One of the great things about living in Northern Ohio is the changing of the seasons. We live in a region with four distinctive seasons; it is part of the beauty of our great community. One of the realities of Ohio winters is traveling in winter weather. From a superintendent’s perspective the early morning winter decisions are not a delightful aspect of Ohio weather.
School delays and closing for winter weather are a reality for transportation departments and superintendents in our area. We take the responsibility for the safety of our students very seriously. In the Huron City School District we have personnel on the roads as early as 2:30 a.m. assessing the conditions. We are in communication with city, county and neighboring school districts as part of the decision making process. Advances in radar and weather forecasts provide us with additional tools when making decisions about the status of school. We will only close school when it is a necessity. We understand that changes in school schedules create a tremendous burden for our families. Our goal is to safely transport our children to and from school so that learning can take place.
We encourage parents, and our students that drive, to keep an eye on weather forecasts. There will be mornings that require a little extra time and a little more cautious driving. This is simply part of winter in Ohio. For parents with new student drivers in the home, please know we are always willing to transport students on our school busses. Driving in winter weather is a developed skill; a slippery morning on the way to school may not be the best time to practice driving in these conditions.
We are committed to making the best possible decision with the information we have in the early morning hours. My goal is to reach a decision about closing by 5:30 a.m.
