September 28, 2020

Last Friday, September 25, 2020, Governor Whitmer issued an Executive Order (2020-185) that requires all Michigan students in grades K-12 wear protective face coverings (masks) throughout the school day, except during meal times.  As a result, beginning Monday, October 5, we will support all students in doing so.  In the meantime, we plan to introduce mask wearing for longer periods of time each day leading up to October 5, in order to help students develop a routine of mask wearing throughout the day.  We are optimistic that students will transition easily to the increased requirement.  They’ve been doing a great job with what has been required of them to date.

El viernes pasado, 25 de septiembre de 2020, el gobernador Whitmer emitió una Orden Ejecutiva (2020-185) que requiere que todos los estudiantes de Michigan en los grados K-12 usen máscaras protectoras durante el día escolar, excepto durante las comidas. Como resultado, a partir del lunes 5 de octubre, apoyaremos a todos los estudiantes para que lo hagan. Mientras tanto, planeamos introducir el uso de mascarillas durante períodos más largos cada día antes del 5 de octubre, para ayudar a los estudiantes a desarrollar una rutina de uso de mascarillas durante el día. Somos optimistas de que los estudiantes pasarán fácilmente al aumento de requisitos. Han estado haciendo un gran trabajo con lo que se les ha pedido hasta la fecha.

COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan

Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2020-142  “provides a structure to support all schools in Michigan as they plan for a return of pre-K-12 education in the fall. Under the order, school districts must adopt a COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan laying out how they will cope with the disease across the various phases of the Michigan Safe Start Plan.

In turn, the accompanying Michigan Return to School Roadmap offers a guide to the types of safety protocols appropriate during each phase. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. Each district (public, public school academy (PSA), nonpublic, and intermediate school district (ISD) that educates pre-K-12 students) shall submit a single completed Assurance Document and Preparedness Plan to its Board in time for approval by August 15 or seven days before the first day of school, whichever comes first.  This template, when completed, serves as a single Assurance Document and Preparedness Plan.
