From The Principal

Dear Falcon Families,

A special reminder regarding communication with our teachers...

The Ford Staff works very hard for our students. We realize that some students are on quarantine and worried about getting responses from their teachers regarding schoolwork. However, please remember that teachers are not going to be able to respond to students' messages immediately, especially if they receive these messages in the evening or on the weekends. They will respond as soon as they can, but it may not be until the next morning.

Changes to Quarantine Process

As Mr. Monroe’s September 30 letter indicated, there has been a series of adjustments in required quarantine guidelines. These adjustments from the Macomb County Health Department are for students who may have been identified as a close contact. The changes are the result of discussions between our district leadership and the health department and are based on concerns shared by our parents.

Our goal remains to keep our students in-person throughout the year. The new guidelines provide an avenue that families can take to return quarantined students to classrooms earlier if they meet certain conditions, such as a vaccination, a distance of more than three feet from the contact or testing daily over seven days through either a clinic or using an at-home kit. If you choose to pursue the at-home or clinic tests, our school will provide you a form to record the results.

In the event your student is a close contact, we will notify you via phone call, email and a text message. (If you do not receive regular updates from our school, please call the office to verify we have accurate information for you).

For more information, you may visit our district’s website regarding the required quarantine process and our school’s layered mitigation strategies. If you have any questions regarding the process or the learning plan for your child if a quarantine is necessary, please speak to your teacher or call our office directly.

If  your student is quarantined and not COVID-positive, it is expected that they will be completing and turning in work in real-time. It is imperative that you check Schoology and and contact your teachers regarding help that you may need. Upon your return from quarantine, it will be expected that your work will be up to date. If you have questions about this, please contact your teachers.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me at 586-797-1600.

Go Falcons!
