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.

I am so excited to be at Ridgecrest this year! This is my 8th year teaching, and first in Huntsville City Schools. I love continuing to learn, spending time with my family, playing soccer and traveling. I have two kids, a now Kindergarten student and a second grader. They grow up so fast. Each child is unique and has qualities others don't. I believe in the whole student and work to find out how to help each individual be successful in school and leaders of our future.
