At Huron, all students in grades 9 and 10 participate in the IB Middle Years Programme, which focuses more on inquiry learning, critical thinking, and student collaboration. We are very excited to continue the IB Diploma Programme at Huron for enrolled 11th and 12th grade students. We are also equally excited to continue to offer the IB Career-related Programme for 11th and 12th graders.
The first day of school for students is Tuesday, September 3, 2019. At Huron, the school day begins at 7:45 AM and ends at 2:36 PM. Students are asked to arrive on time for classes and to promptly leave the building at dismissal time unless they are in an after school activity supervised by a staff member. I encourage all students to become actively involved at Huron High School and enjoy all the opportunities that a comprehensive high school offers. There will be a variety of co-curricular/sports activities offered after school. Information about after school activities, start dates, and meeting times will be provided to students via our daily school bulletin, which is also available in PowerSchool, and on our message kiosks. Sports and co-curricular information is posted on our school website.
Our goal is for all students to achieve academic success. This is only possible if students and parents share with us the responsibility for student achievement. I encourage students to be prepared for class each day, actively participate, become involved in our school, and stay organized. At Huron, interacting in a respectful manner is an expectation for everyone. I ask that students treat each other as they would like to be treated, respecting others and their personal belongings. At the beginning of the school year, administrators will review our school’s behavioral expectations with all students. Please take some time to review the Huron High School Guide for Parents and Students, which will be provided to you and posted on our school website.
I encourage you as parents/guardians to stay involved with your child’s education program, teachers and school during the academic year. Communication is a critical component of a truly successful school/parent partnership. Establish early positive communication with your child’s teachers and counselor. Huron’s Capsule Night (meet your child’s teachers) is scheduled on Monday, September 16th starting at 6:30 PM. Please mark your calendars. I also encourage parents to log into PowerSchool regularly to review your child’s academic progress and attendance. There is a link to PowerSchool on our school website. Whenever your child is absent from school, please call the attendance number at 994-4327 and follow the prompts. If you have attendance questions please contact your Class Office. Mr. Edmondson will be the Assistant Principal for grades 11 with the last names (A-K) and 12th grade (A-Z). He can be reached at 994-2061. Mr. Sumerton will be the Assistant Principal for grades 10 (A-Z) and grade 11 with the last names (L-Z). His office number is 994-2045. Ms. Stevenson is the 9th grade Dean (A-Z) and can be reached at 994-2045. Please feel free to contact the school at any time should you have any questions or concerns. Your feedback is important to us and we will assist you in any way that we can. I will again be hosting monthly informal Parent/Principal Coffee Hours during the school year. Parent/Principal Coffees will give you an opportunity to provide feedback and have an informal conversation with me. The first Parent/Principal Coffee Hour is scheduled for Thursday, September 26th from 9:00-10:00 AM in the Principal’s Conference Room. I hope you will stop by.
To continue to maintain our school’s security protocol, all exterior doors are locked and will remain locked during the day. When visiting Huron please only use our main entrance to enter our school and to follow our security protocol at our main entrance security station. Also, please leave via the main entrance and sign out at the main door security station when you are leaving. I greatly appreciate your cooperation with these safety procedures.
Similar to last year, Huron’s lunch option will include two lunch periods Monday through Friday and a closed campus during each lunch period, with the exception of an open campus for lunch on Fridays only for seniors. All other students should remain on campus each day.
I hope that you have been enjoying the summer. I am delighted that your child is attending Huron High School. It is truly a privilege to work with you and your child during what I am certain will be both an exciting and rewarding 2019-2020 school year! I look forward to seeing you soon at many of the Huron activities and events.
Dr. Janet Schwamb, Principal
