Information on school cancellations, cold weather, and delayed start
Cold weather is HERE!
With cold 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 and scarves during the cold weather season. And with cold weather looming, there is always the possibility of school being canceled due to inclement weather. Please see below for school closing information.
School Closings: Making the Decision and Notifying Parents
Hudson City Schools use a variety of resources, including television and radio alert stations, Blackboard Mass Notification (direct calls to parents), our website, emails, Facebook and Twitter, to notify parents of school closings, most commonly due to severe weather. Learn more about how the decision is made by watching Superintendent Phil Herman and Derek Cluse's video about weather-related school closings.
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. In addition, we will post the information on our website at www.hudson.k12.oh.us, and on other weather alert media.
Two-hour delay information:
A 2-hour delayed start for schools may be used when appropriate. The decision will be made based on the extended forecast for the day and police/city road advisories. By allowing snow crews extra time for clearing roads, the District may decide to hold a shortened school day, which does not count as a calamity day.
The school district will use the same notification system for the 2-hour delayed start as is used to cancel school; this includes the Alert Now (school phone system), and TV and radio station announcements. We will also post the information on our website.
Should school be delayed by 2 hours, elementary school students, K-3, will be served a no-choice lunch due to limited preparation and reduced delivery time. Students with allergies will receive the appropriate foods.
