Happy Thanksgiving! This is our 14th week of the 2020-2021 school year. It remains our goal to provide you with regular updates.
This is a shortened week with the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope everyone manages to have a good time, regardless of the format that your family chooses to celebrate.
Our team has developed a COVID-19 Dashboard with data updates in real-time and a location that brings pertinent information together into an easy to access place. We have added a new column that shows the quarantine number for an incident.
We have reviewed our data and believe the best thing to protect our face-to-face instruction is to add remote instruction for Monday, November 30th, and Tuesday, December 1st for students in grades K-8. We will remain in synchronous mode for these two additional days with students at the MS/HS meeting every hour online. This provides 48 hours from the holiday weekend for any new COVID-19 symptoms to show up for our students and staff.
Please do not send children to a school with any sickness symptoms, cough, fever, etc. Sending children sick to school places our face-to-face instruction program at risk and creates inconvenience for you when we have to send your child home before the end of the school day.
We need everyone to continue to do their part by doing daily health screeners, keeping sick children home, and following the 3 W's: wear a mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance.
We continue to follow our return to learn plan and guidance from the health department, the department of education, and other oversight that has been provided.
Please continue to encourage your child to utilize our free breakfast and lunch program for all; it makes your morning easier knowing that breakfast and lunch are already taken care of. We also have times for you to pick up free food for all students when we have remote days (989) 642-4700 for more information.
Please rest assured if there are any concerns specific to you or your children that either a building principal or myself will contact you directly.
If you should have any questions feel free to give me a call 989.642.5282.
All the best,
