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.

Meredith Bates

My name is Mrs. Meredith Bates, and I am very excited to be your child's third grade teacher for the year. I am very passionate about learning, and want to make learning fun for every child. It is my goal for every student to learn to the best of their abilities. I love being a hands on teacher, showing students how they can learn these core skills in a fun and educational way. Reading is one of my favorite things to do, and I hope that I can share and instill that love of adventure that books take us on into each child that I teach.
In my spare time, I love to read and work on puzzles. I also enjoy spending time outside with my sweet dog Ginger. I have three wonderful step children, and a little girl that is due in October. This is going to be a year full of new adventures for each child in my class, but for me as well. In conclusion, it is my goal that every child knows that all of their dreams can come true.
