I hope things are going well and your family is enjoying the summer. This letter is to inform you that Tekonsha Community Schools is on schedule to begin on August 26th. Our 2020-2021 school calendar is on our website at www.tekonshaschools.org. We update our website on a regular basis so I encourage you to check it out for current events and happenings at our schools. We also have a Tekonsha Community Schools Facebook site that you are invited to join for current events in our school district. You can access from our website by clicking on the Facebook logo.
This school year we will be offering two choices in regards to your student’s education. The first choice is attending school all day every day, five days a week. The second choice is stay at home virtual learning. Enclosed is a questionnaire, where you can indicate your choice, with a return envelope. You may also complete the questionnaire on our website (Learning Commitment Form). Students that choose virtual must commit for at least the first semester. Students that choose the virtual option will be provided a Chromebook and internet, if needed and available in your area. The curriculum for virtual learning has a highly qualified teacher instructing the courses online. For the younger students (K-5), virtual or online learning requires the ability to communicate effectively using technological skills. Parent involvement to assist your student in navigating and communicating with online teachers is very important. The curriculum we are offering is very good. However, it doesn’t replace face to face classroom instruction. Whatever option you choose, please let us know no later than Friday, August 14th.
Also on our website is our Return to School Plan. The majority of the plan is required by the Governor and the Michigan Department of Education. We seek your cooperation in working together to help ensure everyone’s health and safety. The Calhoun County Health Department has established protocol that we must follow in regards to Covid-19 if students or staff become ill or show symptoms of the virus. There is also protocol in regards to family members outside of school that become ill and have students in school. I encourage you to read the plan so that you have a good understanding of what we are required to do. Whether you agree or disagree I respect your opinion. I don’t think anyone enjoys wearing a mask, I know I don’t. But I will have one on.
There will be more information coming soon; it seems like things change every day. As of today, open house is scheduled for August 24th from 5:30 pm until 7:00 pm. If something changes you will be notified immediately.
Looking forward to getting back to school! Stay safe and healthy!
