Central Huron Secondary School supports the Safe Schools Act which recognizes that safety is a fundamental part of the education system. When we have a safe and caring school environment students and staff are free to work and learn in a positive environment that "fosters responsibility, respect and academic excellence." (Ontario Ministry of Education)
This year we are seeking parent, community, staff and student volunteers who would like to be part of an active Safe Schools Team. The Safe Schools Team will play an active role in discussing concerns about safety in our building and our community, and will help develop programs, activities and procedures to support our school community. If you are interested in being a member of this team please contact Vice-Principal, Jana Bayer-Smith at the school or through email, firstname.lastname@example.org.

As the weather continues to change, it won't be long before we have our first inclement weather event in the CHSS community. When poor weather threatens and we might decide to cancel buses and/or close the school, you'll find all of the information you need at www.ourschoolbuses.ca, www.yourschools.ca, @CentralHuronSS (on Twitter), and local radio stations. We will try to get our information to all of those places before 6:45 am.
Thursday evening is a perfect time to visit CHSS. Parents will have an opportunity from 6:00 - 8:00 to speak with their child's teachers. Students should be signing up for an appointment slot with their individual teachers.
There will also be the frst meeting this school year of the School Council at 7:30 in the library. All parents are welcome to attend for the opportunity to find out more about what is happening at CHSS and to have a voice in school matters.
Parents, please remember to send in $35.00 student fee with your son/daughter, along with the signed Emergency Contact Form and In-town Walking Permission Form (for field trips in Clinton). Your son/daughter should have received these forms on the first day of school.
