Spring Break Begins
Weekly Update From Mr. Killingbeck
This week is our 28th week for the 2020-2021 school year.
Many schools around the state of Michigan are still struggling to find a way to provide a minimum amount of face-to-face instruction to their students. Our fantastic staff and students have been exceeding these benchmarks since our 3rd week of school. Our families' level of cooperation and commitment to our return to learn plan has made this possible as we have worked through daily health screeners, sanitizing spaces, social distancing, and other protocols.
Over this last year, we have all learned a lot and have been stretched and grown. Our students have been our focus, and it shows, not only in the classrooms, in extracurricular activities, and in learning growth measurements. However, we know that some students need to catch up academically. With that in mind, we are developing a robust learning program offering for our students and families to help all children achieve at their personal best.
At this time, we do not have any new COVID-19 school-related cases to report. However, we have two students in quarantine this week due to COVID-19 close contact (not school-related). Click here to review our COVID-19 Dashboard with data updates in real-time. This link brings pertinent information together into one easy-to-access place.
As you look ahead at the calendar for the next month, we only have one remote learning day that remains for the month, which is Friday, March 26th. That day will be asynchronous learning as well to provide everyone flexibility as we head into spring break. Please see the calendar below through Friday, April 23rd.
As mentioned previously, we will start to work on version 3.0 of the district's strategic plan this spring and will be seeking input from our stakeholders. Click here to view our current plan.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know.
All the best,
