WEEK 9 UPDATE FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT

This was our ninth week of the 2020-2021 school year.

As many of you know, not every school in our area is in session yet. What we have been able to accomplish is truly a team effort with everyone doing their part.


Our staff and teachers have made the impossible look easy and I need to make sure everyone understands; it's not easy.


We can currently report that we have had one staff member test positive at K.C. Elementary. We have currently, suspended face-to-face instruction for that specific classroom and are waiting for further guidance from the Health Department.


Please rest assured if there are any concerns specific to you or your children that either a building principal or myself will contact you directly.


We continue to follow our return to learn plan and guidance from the health department, the department of education, and other oversight that has been provided.


Please continue to encourage your child to utilize our free breakfast and lunch program for all; it makes your morning easier knowing that breakfast and lunch are already taken care of.


We still remain cautiously optimistic that we can continue our positive trends but need everyone to do their part by doing daily health screeners, keeping sick children home, and following the 3 W's: wear a mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance.


There continues to be a trend of more and more virtual students returning to face-to-face instruction. Our rate of face-to-face students remains relatively the same at slightly less than 90% +/-.


When available we encourage you to watch our sports teams utilizing our streaming network. Tomorrow night our undefeated Varsity Football team will be on the road against the Wolfpack of Laingsburg. Unfortunately, there is no steaming network or plans to live stream the game at this time.


Our goal is to be back in school five days a week; at this time, we continue to review our format and will continue remote Friday on October 30th.


Below is a proposed draft calendar for the remainder of 2020 (November and December).


If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 989.642.5282.


All the best,

Don Killingbeck, Supt.


The following are lessons learned from this week.

  1. All good streaks come to an end.
  2. Data is important in the decision-making process.
