We Are... Wildcats!

1/3/2021

A Message from the Principal

2021... I completely understand that It's just a number and everything doesn't change by the clock striking midnight. However, this new number, 2021, symbolizes a change. This change is like entering a new chapter in a book. It creates hope for what we might find in front of us. For many of us, that last chapter (I will not be referring to the previous year... haha) wasn't the best. However, that previous chapter taught us many lessons about being flexible, adaptable, resilient, and how to innovate under challenging circumstances. These are all lessons that we will carry with us going forward. In this new year, I fully expect that our school will continue to create the best environment (academically, socially, and emotionally) for our students and families no matter what the world looks like around us. That confidence comes from how much our school has accomplished together this past year. 2021... I have no clue what you will bring but I look forward to seeing what you have to offer and know our Wildcats will thrive no matter what because of our great community!


Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

Mr. Bezeau

COVID and Close Contact Reporting

Throughout this entire school year, our ability to maintain safe and effective in-person instruction has been reliant on our dedicated instructional staff, strong mitigation practices, and open and consistent communications between home and school. As we enter 2021 and the first week of remote learning, we want to again stress that it is imperative that positive cases, close contact quarantines, and students awaiting test results are reported to Mr. Bezeau immediately. If you need to notify the school that your child is a close contact, potential close contact, awaiting a test result, or received a positive test result, please email me at:


Derek Bezeau - bezeaud@gibdist.net

or

Call the School Office at 734-379-7060


The school MUST be notified and students should NOT be sent to school if:

  • Anyone in your household is waiting on a COVID test or has tested positive for COVID.

  • If your child has been in close contact with a person waiting on a COVID test or who has tested positive for COVID.

  • If your child is awaiting COVID test results or has tested positive for COVID.


Beyond these scenarios, if your child does not pass any element of the home screener, he or she MUST stay home, and the school must be notified.


Thank you so much for your continued partnership and helping our school stay open for in-person learning.
