A Message from the Superintendent Regarding the Reopening of Schools

August 26, 2020

Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff,

Over the course of the summer, I have sent several informational emails to all of you regarding the reopening of schools. Those messages along with any updated messages regarding the reopening of schools can be found by going to our District Website www.winslowk12.org and clicking on Health and Safety.

One of my earlier messages explained that we have been guided by three principles in developing our reopening of schools plan. The first principle was protecting the health and safety of our school and local communities.

That principal is why I am writing to you today. As you know, in order for us to safely reopen our schools we must adhere to the safety guidelines provided by MDOE and the CDC. Part of those guidelines requires that we have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our students and staff. That equipment can range from masks to certain types of sanitizing solutions and supplies. We have recently learned that some of our PPE is on back order due to the number of requests being made by all schools in the state (and country for that matter). The supplies (or an acceptable alternative) will not be available to us for another week. To that end and due to reasons beyond our control, we will delay the start of schools in Winslow until Tuesday, September 8.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause all of you. I know we are all anxiously waiting for a return to school but it is imperative that we do so with the utmost concern for the safety of our students and staff.

We will use the following schedule.

Tuesday September 8. School will begin for students with the last names beginning with Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Wednesday, September 9. School will begin for students with the last names beginning with A-La. (Cohort 1)

Thursday, September 10. Students with the last name of Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Friday, September 11. Students with the last name of A-La (Cohort 1)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday, September 14. Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Tuesday, September 15. A-La (Cohort 1)

Wednesday, September 16. Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Thursday, September 17. A-La (Cohort 1)

Friday, September 18. Staff Inservice No school for students. Time for staff to evaluate progress to date and make recommendations for future programming.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday, September 21. Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Tuesday, September 22. A-La (Cohort 1)

Wednesday, September 23. Le-Z (Cohort 2)

Thursday, September 24. A-La (Cohort 1)

Friday, September 25. Le-Z (Cohort 2).

Please note, some of you have already made special arrangements if you have children living in the same household with a different last name. Those arrangements will not change.

Please contact your building administrator with specific questions pertaining to the building your child attends.

Thank you,

Peter Thiboutot
