February Update

February 4, 2021

Dear SCS Eagle Family,

Good evening!  I wanted to take this opportunity to address a couple items:

  • Snow Days - Recently I have had a few questions on this topic of snow days.  Yes, we could have snow days.  Currently most of our elementary students do not have a virtual component as part of their education.  For that reason, we aren’t able to make a snow day a virtual day across the district.  We strive to do things together and want to be equitable with our staff and students.  So students, you can do the “snow day” dance and you just might get your wishes.

  • Vaccine Shots - Most staff have received their first Covid vaccine shots.  The second round of shots for our staff are Wednesday, February 24th and Thursday, February 25th.  For a number of reasons, we are going to have those days be virtual for all students.  On Monday, February 22nd, we are going to make that a face-to-face day.  A friendly reminder that Mid-Winter break is Friday, February 26th.  

(FACE-TO-FACE - FEBRUARY 22 & 23) and (VIRTUAL DAYS - FEBRUARY 24 & 25) 

NO SCHOOL ON FEBRUARY 26

  • Extended Learning Plan - Each month the administrative team needs to recommend the educational platform until the next school board meeting.  Here is a LINK to our February Report.  We will present this at next Monday’s School Board meeting.  

You won’t find any changes to our current programming.  We are tasking the Elementary staff to look at options on how we can have our students get more face-to-face instruction from their respective teachers.  We will report on this at a later time.  

  • MHSAA Winter Sports - The Governor and MDHHS had a press conference this afternoon and reinstated winter sports.  When we know more about the specifics we will share them.  Thank you to those that advocated on behalf of our athletes to Let Them Play.  

As always, thank you for your continued support in teaching our children.  It truly is a special community and district.  It is great to see our schools closer to normal with students in the hallways, classrooms, lunchrooms and extra-curriculars.  If you have any questions, please contact me at stittr@schoolcraftcs.org.
