Greetings FLICS Village,


Scholars will complete iReady and Performance Matters testing this week. As discussed in the Prevention Retention meetings, parents who opted for in-person iReady diagnostic 3 must arrive at 7:45 am and complete the COVID safety protocol. Scholars must wear a mask and should bring a water bottle to school. Scholars will test from 8:00-10:20 am in the media center. Scholars need to be picked up immediately after testing.


Please view the schedule below by grade level.

We need 250 families to complete the survey. At this time, we have 108/655 who have completed the survey. The family needs and assessment surveys are out. Please check your scholar's email for access. Please take some time to complete the 10-minute survey. Families can access the survey using this link: surveys.panoramaed.com/detroit. They should log in using lowercase f + student's ID number (e.g., f12345). No other password is needed.


We will continue with the Saliva tests, Wednesday, June 9, 2021, from 8:15 -10:15 am. Parents must complete a consent form and pre-register for scholars to participate. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the main office.


Next school year DPSCD will have a virtual school for K-8 and high school. If you decide that virtual learning is the best option for your scholar, they will NO longer attend FLICS. They will be enrolled in the district's new virtual school. FLICS will only offer F2F in the fall. Again, this is the most recent decision. If you have any questions, please join me at my weekly office hours (Wednesday at 11:00 am https://bit.ly/35EIOJ0) to discuss further.


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to your scholars' teachers. The Summer learning experience begins July 12- August 5, 2021, 8:30- 12:30 pm. FLICS scholars will attend Bethune Academy for the Summer Learning experience. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Scholars will also have the option to participate in afternoon enrichment from 1:00- 5:00 pm. To learn more about the summer learning opportunity, please visit detroitk12.org.
