Concord Community Schools Newsletter
Over the next year, we will be sharing more information about each of these new structures. The commercial we share today features our engineering and robotics pathway with art on deck for next week. This pathway has undergone some change through the years but will continue to be a K-12 staple in our district. We are SO PROUD to be able to offer this opportunity for our students so they can shatter expectations.

HIGH SCHOOL REMINDERS
CURRENT 8TH-11TH GRADE STUDENTS:
A reminder that you are to get your schedule requests to Mrs. Otto ASAP. You can turn them in before or after school OR in between classes. IF Mrs. Otto is not available, you can turn it in to Mrs. Couling in the office. A reminder that it is a first come first serve basis with upperclassmen having priority in course offerings.
Please be looking for a letter in the mail regarding information about important upcoming events. If you do not receive your letter by the end of next week, please contact the office for more information.
COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION AND OPPORTUNITIES
Want to know how you can receive the COVID-19 vaccine?
We are offering vaccines by appointment only
- If you are age 16 or older, you can schedule your appointment online. (Scheduling options for ages 12–15 coming soon.)
- Patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive each dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
- While anyone over age 12 can be vaccinated, only the Pfizer vaccine is approved for ages 12–18.
- You cannot schedule a COVID-19 vaccine by calling our contact center. You also cannot schedule a COVID-19 vaccine through your regular Henry Ford doctor at your medical center.
- You may need to drive some distance to the vaccination site that has an available appointment.
- If you’re an existing Henry Ford MyChart user, please be sure to login to your MyChart once you select your appointment slot.
Know your options
Many providers are offering the vaccine, including health systems, city and county health departments, and grocery stores and pharmacy chains. The state of Michigan receives a limited supply of vaccines and then divides this supply among all of these organizations. We encourage you to explore the options and get your vaccine wherever you can.
Learn more about vaccine availability in your county at the Michigan Coronavirus Vaccine site.

CHANGING TRAFFIC PATTERNS
We were told we will be able to use the high school entrance for the remainder of the year. There will be a day in the coming future where the pavers put down a layer of topcoat asphalt. When that occurs we will do our best to notify our families as that will change traffic patterns again. If anything changes, we will do our best to make sure you know.
ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE SCHOOL SEL CORNER
As you may have already heard, we are done with new ES Trait of the Week traits and MS Good Human Skills Challenge Activities for the year (awesome job, Jackets!). So, for the remainder of the year, we will be posting weekly feedback questions for students on the K-8 Morning Announcements about the Traits we've explored, and self-care suggestions on Fridays.
To kick off your weekend, here's a self-care recommendation to try:
