 IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

Health and Safety Protocols

Our school continues to work to maintain an in-person learning for all students through the entire year. The health and safety protocols used by our school are available on the UCS website.

At this time, there has been no change in the protocols used in our school, including our strong recommendation that families consider the use of face coverings. As Mr. Monroe’s recent letter indicated, we may need to make adjustments in our mitigation strategies for specific programs, classrooms or the entire school. If those adjustments are necessary, you will hear that directly from me.

 

All of us have a level of control over the health and safety of our school community. It is important that our families self-screen students every morning as outlined on the health and safety protocols. 

Thank you for your continued partnership.

Quarantine Information

We have had a great start to the school year with the return of full, in-person learning in our classrooms. It is our school’s goal and the goal of Utica Community Schools to maintain face-to-face instruction throughout the year for families who have chosen this option. I know we share this common goal and it is critical that we work in partnership through the layered approach to mitigation strategies in our schools.

The self-screening process every morning is an important way to keep our students in school, particularly when it comes to quarantines for students who are identified as being in close contact to an individual who has been diagnosed as a probable or confirmed case of COVID-19, as required by the Macomb County Health Department.

Our district’s quarantine information page (see link here) will continue to be updated. If your student has been placed on a quarantine, it is important that you are communicating with your teachers and sharing any questions you may have directly with them or our office.

We can avoid the need for quarantines if all of us work together. If your student is not feeling well, do not send them to school. Thank you for your continued partnership and support.

 

By setting expectations and encouraging lifelong learning for all students, we create collaborative team members, knowledgeable thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and respectful, responsible citizens.
