Tips for Summer Screen Time: What Parents Need to Know
With summer fast approaching, it’s essential for students to balance screen time with other healthy activities. Screen time is the amount of time spent in front of computers, tablets, and smartphones.  

While there are many benefits to using technology, too much screen time can have adverse effects on children’s well being. Physically, students can suffer from headaches, neck and shoulder pain, sleep irregularities, and vision issues. Their posture can be affected as well as changes in behavior and attitude. Too much screen time can affect students’ relationships and socialization with their peers.

Safety & Security Update
Two major concerns at Hudson High School have been addressed with the following enhancements.

  • Changing Door G (on the way to the senior parking lot) to an "emergency exit only" is proving to be effective in preventing exterior doors from being propped open. Plans are also being made to expand this change to other more remote entrances.
  • Seven strobes have been installed around the exterior of the building that will be illuminated during a lockdown, in order to alert those outside of the building that a lockdown is happening. During a lockdown, there is no admittance into the building.
