Additionally, Huron administrators sent an email to the Huron community explaining the outage. 

 

We acknowledge that facing unexpected difficulties right at the start of the school year can be trying for both students and families,” the communication said. “We want to assure you that the well-being and safety of our students, staff, and families remain our top priority.” 

 

The communication from Swift reported the damage from the severe storm on Thursday night caused unsafe conditions to the community, making the schools, Forsythe and Wines taking greater damage, unable to open.
