Dear Tekonsha Parents and Families,
Both buildings and all grade levels including Prekindergarten through twelfth grade will be closed beginning Wednesday November 18th through December 8th . We are tentatively scheduled to return on December 9th .
The closure is due to the Governor's order to close all Michigan High Schools yesterday evening. It is a local school districts option as to whether or not to continue face to face instruction in grades PK thru 8. For the safety of all of our students, faculty, and staff, the Tekonsha Board of Education has decided to close our entire school district during the time issued by the Governor. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
All students have a Chromebook that will be brought home tonight and is to be left at home tomorrow (Tuesday). Online instruction will begin on Wednesday. It's imperative that all students check their school emails every morning. Our younger students may need assistance with this. And older students, perhaps a reminder each day. Participation is mandatory. Students that are already working from home nothing changes, everything stays the same. For students in grades 6-12, that are beginning on
Wednesday, they will be using Google Classroom at home, while continuing with the E2020 courses that they are already taking. Elementary students will be using a combination of Dojo and/or Google Classroom. Those that do not participate will not earn academic credit which could mean failing grades and/or not advancing to the next grade level. Unlike the spring closure last year, students WILL NOT be automatically advanced to the next grade level. Non participation is the equivalent of being absent from school and could result in a truancy report being filed with the CISC). Please make certain that your student is working Monday through Friday, five days a week.
During the closure all sports are considered "on pause" until school resumes. Which means that there will be no practice or games during this time frame.
Beginning this Wednesday, lunch will be served outside the gym doors from 11:00 am until 12:30 pm. Please do not enter the building. Our outstanding food service ladies will bring the food out to you.
Please communicate with your child's teacher(s) during the closure as needed. Emails can be found on our website at www.tekonshaschools.org. Questions may also be directed to my administrative assistant Trisha Blashfield at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or via the phone 517-767-4121 extension 100. Additional information can be found on our Tekonsha Community Schools Facebook page.
On behalf of our Board of Education, faculty, and staff we wish you the best during the difficult times and for the health and safety to you, your family, and friends.
