    Graduate/Parent Advisory
    With all the excitement and celebrations pertaining to graduation, we must be careful that student behavior does not disrupt Huron's school climate for the remainder of its students. Inappropriate behavior and student pranks will not be tolerated. Students in violation could lose the privilege of participating in senior activities, including walking at graduation, attending prom, or the all-night party. Parents, please discuss this with your students.
