Huron Valley Superintendent Says District Will Remain Open
Huron Valley Schools Superintendent Jim Baker said safety of staff and students is the district's highest priority and the district is closely monitoring the schools.
Huron Valley Schools Superintendent Jim Baker just released the following message regarding classes this week. The message is in response to concerns from parents about neighboring districts canceling classes and school activities.
Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members –
Like you, we as a school district, are anxious over recent events that have involved school safety. Please know, the safety of students and staff is our highest priority. We are aware that the Genesee County schools made the decision to close all schools. Their news release states that rumors multiplied as a result of social media and the decision was made to close their schools due to their inability to control the rumors. In Huron Valley we have been closely monitoring the situation with Oakland Schools and other county school districts. As of this morning, every Oakland County school district, every Wayne County school district and every (to the best of my knowledge) Macomb County school district has made the decision to remain open.
We have had no credible threats at this time and therefore will remain open. As always, threats and rumors will be thoroughly investigated. We will remain diligent in protecting our students and we will investigate every situation that is brought to our attention. Rest assured, we will follow district policies and procedures in regards to prosecuting any party who is causing public unrest as it relates to our school environments.
Jim Baker, Superintendent
