We Are... Wildcats!
October 4th, 2020
It has been great partnering with all of you during this first month of the year. The Wildcats have settled into their classroom routines, and although I cannot see their smiles, their eyes say it all- they are happy to be in school! Thank you for your continued support as parents. As always, if you ever have a question or concern, please feel free to send me an email. We are in this together, because we are WILDCATS.
Executive Order- Face Mask
On Friday, September 25, 2020, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Executive Order
2020-185, requiring that all students in kindergarten and up wear facial coverings while in classrooms for the 2020-2021 school year. This order officially goes into effect on Monday, October 5, 2020. While our students in grade K-5 already have been wearing masks indoors based on our GSD plan, this will create a small change in our day-to-day operations. Prior to this new Executive Order, our procedure was that all students in K-5 would wear their masks while in their cohorted classroom unless instructed by their teacher to remove it for instructional activities such as a phonics lesson or guided reading. Going forward our students will have to keep their mask on while they are in school with the exception of while they are eating and at recess when socially distanced. We feel this will be an easy transition for our students since they have already developed a level of comfort in wearing their mask for the majority of the day. As always, we will continue to keep our families informed about any changes involving our school processes.
