Illness Guidelines: It's that time of year when children are coming down with various illnesses. We encourage parents to review proper handwashing procedures with your students. Additionally, if your student has a temperature above 100 degrees and/or has vomiting or intestinal illness, please wait to send your student to school until he/she has been symptom-free for 24 hours. For fevers, your student must be fever-free for 24 hours without the help of medication. Please review the When Should I Stay Home? flyer in Peachjar for more information. We appreciate your assistance in reducing the spread of germs.

Strategic Planning Online Survey
Parent and community engagement is an important part of the Hudson City School District strategic planning process. This process happens every three to four years. The plan serves as a roadmap for student achievement, academic excellence, social and emotional services and programs, staff development, finances, communications, safety, facilities, technology, and Hudson Community Education and Recreation.
Throughout October and November, the District worked with Impact Group, a local company that specializes in school, Prek-12, strategic planning, to conduct 18 focus groups that included parents, community members, community leaders, and staff members. This phase of the process is nearly complete, and we hope to engage even more parents through our strategic planning online survey.
We sincerely want your input. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey. The survey results, as well as a summary of the feedback from the focus groups, will be made available once completed.
Because it is important to our District that you feel comfortable participating in the survey, your responses are anonymous. The Impact Group is conducting the online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/
The survey will remain open through January 24, 2020.
Thank you so much for taking a few minutes of your time to give us your valuable input!

The Hudson City School District is excited to announce a potential new community partnership. We need your input!!!
The Hudson Community Foundation, in partnership with the Hudson Library, Hudson City Schools, the Hudson Ministerial Association, and the City of Hudson, is considering launching a speaker series that would attract recognized leaders, experts, and innovators to Hudson. These entities working together are called the Hudson Chautauqua Collaborative.
The mission of the Hudson Chautauqua Collaborative would be to positively affect lifelong learning and heighten the quality of life in Hudson. This mission will be accomplished by establishing a speaker series and supporting selected community events grounded in local authenticity that embrace the following SIX pillars: Education, Family, Faith, Art and Culture, Science and Technology, and Civility. This meaningful community endeavor would be supported by an endowment established and maintained within the Hudson Community Foundation.
Although the concept is still in the planning phase and many details must still be worked out, it is the hope of the committee to host the first speaker series event in autumn of 2020.
We are seeking community input regarding this concept. Please take a few moments to complete the brief survey by clicking on the link provided below.
Student fees for all Kindergarten and 1st Grade students have been assigned. Parents can pay their student's fees online through mypaymentsplus.com. For All-Day Kindergarten students, please review your tuition contract for payment due dates. As a reminder, final tuition payments for All-Day Kindergarten are now due.
Cold Weather is Here!With colder weather here, please make sure your child comes to school dressed appropriately for outdoor recess. The children will be going outside almost daily during cold weather season, so snow-pants and boots are a necessity. Children will be asked to remain on the blacktop if they are dressed inappropriately. Also, we discourage the sharing of hats, scarves and hair brushes.
School Closings: Making the Decision and Notifying ParentsHudson City Schools use a variety of resources, including television and radio alert stations, Blackboard Mass Notifications (direct calls to parents), our website, www.hudson.k12.oh.us, emails, Facebook and Twitter, to notify parents of school closings, most commonly due to severe weather. With Ohio weather, it is often difficult to know exactly when weather conditions may warrant school closings. We want to prepare you as early as possible. We hope you will familiarize yourself with the School Closing Information so you know what is needed to prepare for a cancellation or a delayed start of school. We will use our automated calling system as the first means of communication.
If you have not done so, please go online and fill out your student's FINAL FORMS. These contain important information including emergency medical forms, etc. The forms can be accessed by going to "Quick Links" at the top of Evamere's homepage and clicking on "Final Forms".
