April 6, 2021

Dear Huntington Parents and Guardians,

On April 12th we will begin our 4th quarter and a new start for many students we are welcoming back to Huntington PK8 School in person.  The following is information to remind students and families of the expectations and changes that are in place for this school year.   We are committed to the health, safety, and well-being of your child.  COVID has changed our way of life, but not our goal of providing the best learning experience for your child. 

For the remainder of the school year our top priority is to help all students adjust to returning to school in person, and 5 days of school for elementary students, and 4 days for middle school students.  It is our goal to keep class sizes equal in all rooms and to make sure that we have the proper distance for students to be in a safe learning environment. 

Here are some changes that are in place starting Monday, April 12th for all students, either in person or at home virtually:
  • School hours for elementary students are: 8:00 am – 2:00 pm.  Hours are the same for those working in school and those working from home.
  • Hours for middle school students in-person are 8:45 am -12:45 pm, lunch is still Grab & Go, and all specials (Art, Music, and Phys. Ed) are virtual in the afternoon for ALL students.   Wednesdays will be a full remote day for middle school students; students are expected to go online and complete posted assignments on Canvas.
  • Fully remote elementary students will have specials virtually (Art, Music, Health, Physical Ed.); they will view videos on WCNY and will be expected to complete assignments on Seesaw.
  • In-person elementary students will go to the gym for PE, to the art room for Art, and to the music room for Music.  Elementary Health will be delivered in the classroom.
  • Middle school students will still have all specials virtually, until 3:40 pm (this has not changed).
  • Lunch for elementary students will remain in the classroom. 
  • Students who are in person are expected to be in school every day.
  • All students will have their temperatures taken before they enter the building.
For those returning to Huntington for the first time please see the arrival and dismissal procedures below:
Arrival Procedures:
  • Parents/Guardians will NOT be allowed entry in the building. Staff will greet your child and escort them to their classrooms.
  • All students and families are expected to wear masks on school grounds at all times. This includes outside when dropping off or picking up.
  • All students will have their temperatures taken before they enter the building.
Dismissal Procedures:
  • PreK and Kindergarten students will be picked up at the Pool Door.
  • All other grade level students will be escorted and dismissed through the front entrance.
  • Bus students will be escorted to their buses by their teachers.
We can’t wait to see so many of our students back in the building.  It is going to be a great end of the school year!
Mrs. Harlow, Principal
