Annual Leader in Me - Measurable Results Survey

As a Leader in Me Lighthouse school we are always working to understand how we can improve. Our annual Measurable Results Survey will be open to all parents beginning Monday, May 3 through Monday, May 24th. This survey is used to collect, analyze, and report school-level outcomes as they relate to improving leadership, culture, and academics. It helps us identify our strengths and weaknesses, develop improvement plans, and monitor progress. Staff and students in grades 4-5 will be surveyed, as well. All of your responses are completely anonymous.


The survey should take you approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. Thank you!

Supporting the 7 Habits at home!

We will be working on Habit 6: Synergize this entire month.


Habit #6: Synergize


What this means: Working together is better. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.


“I get along well with other people and work well in groups.”

“I value the strengths of others and allow myself to learn from them.”

“I know that working together as a team we can get more done and come up with better solutions than we could alone.”

“I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems.”


How can I do this in my life?

With your children, choose a problem you may have (like curfew or completing tasks). Use the Synergy Action Plan to summarize your child's solution and your solution: (1) define the problem, (2) share your views, (3) think of solutions, (4) choose the best solution together. See if you can reach a better solution (The High Way) than either of you could come up with alone.

Covid - 19 Updates

CLOSE CONTACT QUARANTINE UPDATE

As you may be aware, there has been a significant increase in the number of COVID cases in our community, and across Michigan over the course of the past several weeks. Citing the increasing case rates and variant spread in Michigan, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has reinstated a standard 14-day quarantine for close contacts of COVID-19 cases effective immediately.


Parents should continue to monitor their child for symptoms and not send them to school where symptoms are present. Additionally, if your child has had COVID-19 in the past 5 months (evidenced by a positive PCR), quarantine is not required. We began following these new requirements immediately and notified all families where an identified close contact quarantine could be shortened under these new rules.


**REMINDER** INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS

The Wayne County Health Department, as indicated on the COVID-19 Daily STUDENT Symptom Screening Tool (2.16.2021), requires that students stay home to quarantine for 7 days from the date they return to the U.S. No earlier than the 7th day of return, a student must have a COVID-10 PCR test and have a negative result before returning to school.



SCREENING FORM UPDATED

Please remember to use the Wayne County Health Department COVID-19 Daily STUDENT Symptom Screening Tool (2.16.2021) each morning to determine if your child can come to school. If your child is a close contact to a positive case, please plan on a 10 day quarantine as the 14 day quarantine will only be required in circumstances where symptoms are present or as required by the health dept or your child's medical care provider.
