The CDC guidance for vaccinated Americans came as a surprise last week. The alignment to the guidelines for Michigan's population was also a surprise. While our vaccinated staff members certainly would like to take advantage of being in the classrooms maskless, Holly Academy protocol will call for all staff members to wear masks while inside the buildings. Until our students can be educated in a maskless environment, we will all wear masks in solidarity. Power of the Pack!

Healthy Huskies

We want the fourth term to be as safe and healthy as possible. To achieve this it is imperative that you are symptom-checking your Husky each morning. Should your student/s display any symptoms of sickness, please keep them home. Power of the Pack!
If you or your Husky receives a positive COVID result, please contact the school as soon as possible. On a weekend or in the evening, you can email any of the administrators. There are measures that we have to take immediately, including contacting the health department if a student tests positive. Thank you.
