Attention Huron Families,

As you have probably heard, two (2) cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in the State of Michigan. As a preventative measure, Governor Whitmer has also declared a “state of emergency.” This declaration includes the release of “Community Mitigation Strategies,” coming from the Governor’s office. In relation to this, the Governor has issued the following statement.

“Community mitigation strategies are designed to be implemented at the individual, organizational, and community levels. They apply to businesses, workplaces, schools, community organizations, health care institutions, and individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and health profiles; everyone has an important role to play. These strategies provide essential protections to individuals at risk of severe illness and to health care and other critical infrastructure workforces.”

“’Michiganders have been preparing for COVID-19 for weeks, including by taking basic measures such as washing their hands often, covering their mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing, and staying home when they are sick,’ said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health. ‘However, Michigan must take further action to avoid a rapid increase of cases in the state. Community mitigation strategies are crucial to slowing the transmission of the virus in Michigan, particularly before a vaccine or treatment becomes available.’”

In addition, I met today with representatives from the Wayne County Department of Health, Wayne County RESA, and Wayne County Superintendents. The Health Department made it clear that, at this time, they are NOT recommending the closure of schools, nor the cancelation of school events. Although this situation continues to change rapidly, Health Department officials are continuing to monitor the situation and to work closely with the CDC.

Obviously, these announcements have raised many questions within our community related to how this may impact our schools.

The Huron School District is continuing to follow the recommendations and guidelines issued by the CDC and the Wayne County Department of Health. In addition, we will continue to monitor the “State of Emergency” and “Community Mitigation Strategies” issued by the Governor. The Huron School District has also increased cleaning and disinfecting efforts within the district classrooms and school buses. As always, student safety is our primary concern. I thank you for your support of our school district, especially during this time. As the situation changes, we will continue to provide you with information and updates.

Sincerely, Donovan Rowe

Dear Huron Families,

Many of you have been following the news from around the world and within the United States regarding COVID-19 (formerly known as the Novel Coronavirus 2019), and these new reports have sparked questions and concerns around the country.  It is our goal to share the most current information we have regarding COVID-19 and to provide resources to help you stay informed.

Please know that The Huron School District is working closely with the Wayne County Health Department (www.waynecounty.com), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www.cdc.gov) so that we can stay current with the latest information regarding COVID-19.

While there is currently no vaccine to protect against COVID-19, experts advise that the best way to prevent infection and avoid being exposed is through everyday best practices:

  • Remain at home if you are sick, avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve
  • Frequent hand washing with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds
  • When soap and water is not available, use alcohol based hand sanitizer to wash hands
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • If feeling ill, seek medical care immediately

As state, county, and local agencies begin to formulate plans to address the possibility of a potential widespread outbreak, our administrative team is also monitoring developments related to COVID-19.  We have been in contact with other educational agencies such as the Michigan Department of Education, Wayne County Department of Health, Wayne RESA, the Michigan Association of School Administrators, and others in developing protocols and procedures that will prepare our school district in the event of a widespread outbreak in our community. 

This communication is not meant to induce panic; it is simply meant to assure you that we are closely monitoring this serious topic, following the recommendations of the community health agencies, and serve as a reminder to continue to employ best practices for prevention. The Huron School District is continuing to follow our cleaning and disinfecting protocols within our school buildings.  As needed, we will continue to provide you with information and updates as they develop.

Sincerely,

Donovan Rowe
