We hope everyone received the robo call with this reminder. Make sure to have a moment of discussion with your child about their grades. They will be able to show you grades on Student Connect or you can open your Parent Connect. Report cards will be mailed home within two weeks.
The Board of Education approved a plan to return to in-person learning once COVID conditions improve in the community. The district can start bringing kindergarten through elementary students back two weeks after the Wayne County Health Department safety rating for the district improves to at least a D and the seven-day average positivity rate for Wayne County outside of Detroit is below 5 percent for at least two weeks. The county’s safe school matrix is based on the infection rate for that community (number of cases per 100,000 people), if the infection rate is increasing or decreasing, and the county’s positivity rate (number of COVID tests that come back positive).
Two weeks after kindergarten to second grades restart, grades 3 to five could then return to school. Preschool would then follow. The earliest middle and high school students could return would be with the start of the second semester in January. For more details, read the full article on the First Bell site.
