Positivity Project Starts this coming week
Message from Katie, Health Aide
While we are beginning the school year remotely, we would like to start collecting any medications your student might need for when we return to school. Having it now will allow the clinic to be ready to go when we do return in person. Please print out the forms on the district website for you and the doctors to fill out. The doctor can then fax the form back to our office at 586-723-5201. Due to Covid-19 school protocols, nebulizer machines are not allowed in the school for use. Should your student need them, please advise your doctor of this change, and inquire about an emergency inhaler.
If you have any questions, you can reach Katie (Health Aide) at 586-723-5206 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Many of you have already received laptops from the district. However, there are still some families out there who have not. The goal of the district is to provide a laptop for each student who needs one for remote learning, but we know that at this time, the requests outnumber our available computers. The district has ordered new computers, but they will not arrive for several weeks. For those families still in need of technology, please sign-up by visiting: Technology Wait List.
Until we can have more computers available to distribute, we ask that if you have a personal device available for remote learning for a few weeks while you wait to check out a district device. If you can share devices until we have more accessible, it will help us meet the demands of our families in the most need.
Windows computers, Mac computers, Chromebooks, iPads, and Android tablets are all devices that will work with the district’s remote learning programs.

Morley Candy Fundraiser
Unfortunately, as of right now, PTO will not be able to hold many of the events that they did last year. I can tell you that we had already begun some of the planning work over the summer. The goal was to give our Clinton Valley students some of the opportunities that other schools have, and just because we are in shutdown mode with not being able to host the many events that we had, doesn't mean we can't find other ways to make things happen for our students.
This year we found another way to raise funds for our kids, and it sounds like a pretty great way to raise funds. Dan Morley from Morley Candy came in a couple of weeks ago to go over this new touchless fundraiser. We are asking our families to participate in selling Otis Spunkmeyer and Winter Wishes (Morley Candy). I have included the Fundraiser letter below. Please click on the image, and it will open it up to a PDF. Once it opens into a PDF, the clickable links will work. Please register and share the fundraisers with five or more supports. Everyone who sells five or more items will receive a candy bar with either $1, $5, or $10 attached. There is a video embedded in the letter that goes over how the fundraiser work. Please review it, and let's get excited about what this fundraiser can do.

Food Service & Meal Benefits
Over the past months, we understand families may have experienced economic hardship. At this time, CVS will be providing FREE meals to students up to 18 years old as we transition back into remote learning.
This FREE meal service will continue until further notice. However, we highly encourage families to complete a meal benefits application by visiting: www.lunchapp.com so benefits can continue once the FREE meal service is discontinued.
If your children received meal benefits (free/reduced lunch) during the 2019-2020 school year, your family must reapply for support to continue service during the 2020-2021 school year. Please complete your application by October 16th as soon as possible to ensure the continuation of support.
Meal Service will take place from 9 – 11 am Monday – Friday on days that school is in session. Click to view Meal Distribution Locations
