Welcome Back from Spring Break!!

April 11, 2021

OVEE is in session April 12, 2021

School is OPEN!

We hope you had a restful and enjoyable Spring Break! As many of our families have heard, there was a recommendation, not a mandate, to have a 2 week pause for school and youth activities.

Please read "Our Return after Spring Break Plan" by our Superintendent Jim NIelsen shared below.

At Orchard View, we continue to believe schools are one of the safest places in our community, with strict safety protocols in place at all buildings. Having said that, we plan to be in close contact with officials from Public Health throughout the upcoming weeks and we will pivot to remote learning if our COVID-19 data suggests this is in the best interest of our students and staff. Parents are encouraged to have a plan in place if this were to happen. (leaders at Public Health Muskegon are not recommending remote learning as a broad community approach but rather have each district weigh their own set of circumstances) As always, if your child is experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms, please keep your child home and contact the building principal as soon as possible.
For now, we plan to see all our Face to Face Learners Monday morning at school, as school resumes as planned after Spring Break.



Big picture

Let's do our part to help keep OV schools open!

All staff and students are required to wear masks properly while on school grounds, covering mouths and noses.

We ask that parents and visitors also please wear masks when outside of their vehicles on school property and when approaching the building.

Prior to sending your student(s) to school, please review the following questions daily and STAY HOME if the answer if "YES"

1) Has you child experienced any of the following symptoms in the past 24 hours (not caused by another known condition)?

Fever 100.4⁰F / 38°C or higher


Shortness of Breath or Difficulty Breathing



Muscle Pain or Body Aches


New Loss of Taste or Smell

Sore Throat

Congestion or Runny nose

Nausea or Vomiting


2) Has your child been in close contact with a person who has recently been confirmed to have COVID-19?

*Close contact means being within 6 feet (2 meters) of an infected person for 15 minutes or more.

3) Has your child had a positive COVID-19 test for active virus in the past 10 days?

4) Within the past 14 days, has a public health or medical professional told you that you or your child must self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine because of concerns about COVID-

We appreciate your help and cooperation. We all want to do our part to keep students, staff and our community healthy.
