Important Update - 4/2/2020

homer rise up

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.  

 

Access to Technology - Available Again!

During the mandatory school closure from March 11 though the end of the school year, we want your student to stay academically challenged and engaged during this difficult time. Many teachers are communicating regularly through email, Remind, Google Classroom, and their teacher web pages. Assignments posted are an opportunity for your student to participate in learning and stay connected with their teacher and classroom content. This will allow for the best transition when we return to school.

Many internet service providers are now offering FREE internet during the next two months. If your family is in need of a Chromebook for your students to use during this time period, please fill out the form below. You will be contacted via email when we have a device ready for pick up.
