Fall 2020 Updates
THIS PAGE IS BEING REORGANIZED AND STREAMLINED. PLEASE STAY TUNED!
To help parents, staff, and older students stay up-to-date on our plans for Fall 2020, we are compiling information on this page. We are currently processing the info from the most recent executive orders and will share any updates here and via email as soon as we have them.
RETURN-TO SCHOOL UPDATE 8/31/2020
At the August 31, 2020 Board of Education Meeting, Dr. Timmis shared a slideshow showing what families chose for their students' fall learning, technology updates, current COVID numbers in the district, county, and region, and updated requirements for Return-To-School plans created by the passing of Michigan's Public Act 149 on August 20, 2020. The first requirement is that school boards must adopt specific goals by September 15, necessitating a Special Board Meeting September 14, 2020 for that purpose. (See slides 10, 11, 12 in the slideshow below for the Public Act info).
ISSUES WITH EMAILS TO FAMILIES 8/31/2020
Various software updates over the summer created a couple of issues that are impacting emails sent to some parents and guardians. We have the providers working on the issue, but it may be a few more days before it is resolved. We apologize for the inconvenience. In the meantime, we suggest downloading the DCSD app, where principals and the district posts all essential messages. Parents of Mill Creek and DHS students can also monitor their student email accounts and/or have the students forward any messages to you, because those student accounts get most of the emails you need to read and those accounts are working fine in the system. Thank you for your patience - this is a top priority for us.
The DCSD App info can be accessed on your building's Parent Resource page or the Central Office page for DHS.
