    March 27, 2020 Update

    “Reset your baseline. We're all operating in the shadow of a global pandemic, and it is disorienting and limiting. Business as usual is unrealistic.” - Stephen Merrill (Teaching Through a Pandemic: A Mindset for This Moment: edutopia.org. March 19, 2020)


    These are wise words during a time when we are all seeking some sense of normalcy. These are unprecedented times, and there simply was no experience or specific training that could prepare us for what we are now facing. We continue, however, to use all of our resources to support ongoing student learning. We understand that this is not “business as usual” and appreciate your continued patience as we navigate forward. Hang in there. I am sure that everyone is doing the best they can.

    Information from State Senator Kim LaSata’s office was shared with area superintendents yesterday that an announcement was forthcoming early next week that would bring clarity to the length of the school closure. In a radio interview this morning, the Governor responded to the question, “Will it be the end of the school year right now?”

    March 25 - Frequently Asked Questions

    Our preparation for a possible pandemic began weeks ago when the Center of Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) asked that schools create Pandemic Response Plans. Utilizing resources gathered from many sources, we developed a comprehensive plan that included strategies for mitigating the spread of illness. Even with this preparation, the situation continues to evolve quickly. In order to give you the most recent information we have, we have developed a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Please be patient with us as we continue to update this list. The information provided could change quickly.

    Superintendent Freeman March 22 Update

    I have stated often over the past several days that we are faced with more questions than answers during these unprecedented times. I wish that I had easy answers (or, at times, any answers at all) to the questions that I receive. Friday’s flurry of communications from the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) and the Governor’s Office did little more than to add to the confusion surrounding remote learning, instructional time, and “forgiven” days. This has raised one BIG question:

    “Why should we do remote learning if it doesn’t count?”

    Below, I have prepared two responses. The first is a simple answer. The second is a bit more complicated.
