    Secret Santa/Holiday Gift Shoppe and Craft Fair 
    Don’t miss the Community First Secret Santa/Holiday Gift Shoppe and Craft Fair on Saturday, December 7th, from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM, or until supplies last, at Hudson Middle School.  Parents can browse the craft fair, featuring over 25 vendors, while their children secretly holiday shop for their family members.  Proceeds benefit Community First Youth Programs.  The shop is sponsored by Primrose and open to ages pre-school through 12 years old.  Elves will accompany the children through the shop.  Everything is wrapped and tagged. Hope to see you there!  For more information, please call 330-807-1517.

    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 McDowell's homepage and clicking on "Final Forms.


    SCHOOL CLOSINGS: Making the Decision and Notifying Parents
    Hudson City Schools use a variety of resources, including television and radio alert stations, Blackboard Mass Notifications (direct calls to parents), our website,, 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.
