    Cold weather is right around the corner!
    With colder weather coming, 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 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.
