We have experienced an apparent software glitch in our active shooter alarm system resulting in a lockdown sequence. All is well and there is no threat. We are currently in contact with the software company to work on correcting and/or preventing another occurrence.

Current weather forecasts indicate potential for lowland flooding tomorrow. Please be alert to weather conditions and the possible disruption of the school schedule to ensure buses can deliver students home safely before roadways become impassable. Remember, a bus is not allowed to drive through a roadway under water even if it is only an inch deep. Hang in there- spring is just around the corner!

Huntington will be hosting an open cornhole tournament immediately following the varsity boys basketball game on Saturday, February 15 vs. Adena. The tournament will be held in the Huntington Middle School Gym. The tournament is open to high school students and adults from either community. Entry for the tournament is $10.00 per player ($20.00 per team). If you do not have a teammate to sign up with please let the organizers know at the time you sign up. Every effort will be made to find you a partner to play with. There will be a prize cash amount for the winners of the tournament. The prize amount will be determined the night of the tournament. The proceeds from tournament entry will be donated to the Smith family to help cover rising medical costs or family needs while both boys (Brandon and Jacob) are hospitalized.

A short while ago a student reported a brief message written on a stall wall with word bombs written under it. As mandated, we followed protocol and notified law enforcement immediately. Dogs were brought over to sweep the building. Nothing was found. Students are now free to go about their day as usual. We appreciate the prompt response from our Sheriff’s department. Also, thanks to Pickaway County Sheriff for their assistance as well! It was great to see our students knowing to report a potential threat- well done! We want to remind all students our counseling services are available to everyone. If you feel frustrated, isolated or hopeless there is help right here in the building for you. Just ask. Parents- your children and their safety are always of highest priority for us. Let’s continue to work together to help our kids grow up healthy, happy and strong! John Balzer, Superintendent

Due to a scheduling error earlier in the season, the Adena Lady Warriors must forfeit the game with Westfall that was to be played this evening, February 10th. Although Adena listed the game as a scrimmage, I want to apologize to the young ladies who have played valiantly this season as well as their families. Measures will be implemented to make sure this does not happen in the future. Any presale tickets purchased under the Adena name will be reimbursed electronically.

Adena local schools will be open tomorrow morning. As we are in the peak of the flu season, We have taken the necessary steps to stop the spread of the flu. We have canceled classes and closed the building in order to completely disinfect our classrooms. Here’s how you can help! • Please do not send your child to school if they currently have symptoms of the flu. These include nausea, vomiting, body aches, cough, and fever. If they do need to miss for this reason, please notify the office so that you may be counted as a medical absence. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
