The following was released on Monday, November 11, 2019:
Huntington County Community School Corporation announces that classes will be canceled on Tuesday, November 19, 2019. HCCSC has had more than 115 educators request personal leave to attend the Red for Ed Action Day in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Please know that while we fully support our teachers and staff attending this event, we also have an obligation to our students to provide quality instruction with a safe and secure learning environment.
The root cause for the Red for Ed Action Day is inadequate public education funding from state elected leaders. The unfortunate result is the need for Indiana educators to gather in Indianapolis to remind elected leaders of the legislator’s recent public educating funding failures.
We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause our families. Our hope is that by giving as much advanced notice as possible, they are able to make alternate arrangements.
HCCSC will make the canceled day up on Monday, February 17, 2020. Administration offices will remain open on November 19, 2019.
