From The Principal

Dear Falcon Families,

We are excited to be taking the next steps with you toward greater in-person learning for our students!

  • Schedule – We will begin full day of instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday beginning the week of March 15. We will continue to follow the block schedule and Wednesday will remain a remote learning day. This schedule will continue through at least mid-April when we are targeting the full return to in-person learning for families who have chosen this option.

  • Safety Protocols – Our school will continue to follow the health and safety guidelines outlined in the MI Return to School Roadmap, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Macomb County Health Department. This includes the use of face coverings, frequent handwashing, and the use of disinfectant. Please know that with the increased number of students for in-person instruction, it will have an impact on the density within a classroom. Physical distancing will be maximized to the greatest extent possible.
  • Self-Screening – It is even more important that you take the time each morning to complete the self-screening process. If your child has any symptoms or is not feeling well, do not send them to school. This screening is for the protection of your child, their friends at school, and our dedicated staff. The updated screening protocols can be found here.
  • Transportation – We should expect changes to bus schedules. This may include additional bus stops, a change in the driver/bus number, or an adjustment to the bus pick-up/drop-off times.
  • Food Service – Breakfast and lunches will be provided at the buildings during the full in-person days, and meals will continue to be offered free of charge through federal funding. During remote days, food distribution sites will be established in the afternoon and early evening for families to access remote meals. More information will continue to be provided on the district’s food service page.

I would also encourage you to download the updated Parent Handbook at this link.

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


Go Falcons!
