Weather Notice

Huntsville City Schools will operate on a 2-hour delay on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.  The two-hour delay will also apply to all HCS employees, unless otherwise directed by your supervisor.  The current forecast does not call for accumulations of winter-like precipitation, but does include a significant wind chill.  The delay will allow time for conditional improvements to ensure safe travel and improved conditions for our buses, students, and staff. 


All elementary, middle, and junior high classes will begin at 10:00am.  All high school classes will begin at 10:30am.  Buses will also run on a two-hour delayed schedule. 


The HCS Weather Safety Team will work in conjunction with the EMA and other local agencies to monitor conditions and send out updates should any additional changes be necessary.  For more information about the weather safety decision process, please select the more information link below.

Ms. Shelia Crutcher-Stewart, Curriculum Specialist

I’m from Huntsville, Alabama. I started teaching in 1994. The last ten of those years were spent here in Huntsville City Schools at McDonnell Elementary School. I have taught first through eighth grades in Alabama and Tennessee. I have two sons Lorenzo-Rashad and Ja’Kel. I enjoy traveling, cooking, and spending time with my family and friends. I'm excited to join the Highlands family. My goal for this year is to assess varied resources that will have a positive and lasting impact on teaching and learning.
