The following is an important update from Superintendent Scott Salow:
Earlier this morning, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order closing all K-12 school buildings for face-to-face learning for the remainder of the school year. This means that all school buildings, student activities and events are canceled or postponed through May 29. Although this announcement was expected, it is still extremely sad and disheartening at the same time. Please know that we grieve with you over the loss of school as we know it.
But we will RISE UP. We will continue to educate our students to the absolute best of our ability. The governor announced that each school district will be creating an alternate distance learning plan. We will be working on finalizing our plan over the next few days and communicating this to you. Please continue to watch the district website for all updated information. Our goal is to have the plan in place and communicated to you by Monday, April 13.
During Spring Break and for the remainder of the school year, we will continue to provide meals to all children aged 18 and younger. We are currently offering meal pick up on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 11:00-12:00 in front of the superintendent’s office. We are also going to reopen the Chromebook request form on the school website. If your family does not have access to a device, we want to get one to you!
These are uncertain, stressful, trying and unprecedented times, and there is no roadmap to help navigate us through this event. We will get through this together. Now more than ever, we will show what it truly means to be Homer Strong!!!
Please continue to stay safe, stay healthy, stay home and as always Homer Strong!!!
