127 Best Positive Quotes of All Time (Updated 2020)

Dear Families,

I hope this finds you well. Our team has been working diligently to ensure an effective learning plan is in place to meet the needs of all of our learners. There is a specific process outlined by the state of Michigan that we must follow in order to gain approval of our plan through Wayne RESA, our intermediate school district. It has been a work in progress and we are close to being ready for implementation of continuing our learning outside of what many teachers have already been providing students with.

You will be contacted directly by your child’s teacher to check in and determine which mode of delivery will best suit the needs of your family. We are looking forward to working closely as your educational partner in the coming months to ensure students are successful during this time.  

Please read below for updates and answers to questions you might have.  We miss all of our student and families. If you have not had the chance, check out our photo message here. As always, reach out to me directly with any questions.

Stay Safe,

Erin Eaton

Locker clean out will be scheduled when safe to do so!

Building Access

At this time, we are not allowing families into the building to gather belongings that may be in desks and lockers.  The process for this will be determined after the Governor’s stay at home order which has now been extended through April, is lifted. I can assure you that your child will be able to access the building when it is safe to gather materials left behind.  We will communicate this information to you when we have a plan in place.

In addition, we are also working with Lifetouch to determine the process for distributing pictures and yearbooks.  We will communicate this information to you as well when we have it.  It seems likely that these will be distributed when lockers are cleaned out.

April 2, 2020 Update

Image in Quotes ❤️ collection by Street But Sweet

Dear Families,

As I sat and watched Governor Whitmer make the announcement to close public schools for the remainder of the year, I was heartbroken for students, families and school staff.  Although I was hopeful we would be back together learning this school year, I do understand that this decision was not made lightly, and the health and safety of our staff, students and families is a priority during this time.

Our staff, in coordination with the district, is developing a plan for learning that is equitable for all of our students.  Please be patient with us as we continue to develop this plan.  We are navigating through uncharted waters and will do everything in our power to ensure the best learning possible is provided to our students for the remainder of the year.

I know that you have a lot of questions.  I promise you we WILL get through this together.  We might not have all the answers right now, but it is going to be okay and we will be here to support you and your student the best we possibly can.  Please give us time to process this new information and develop a plan for the remainder of the year.  Our next steps will be communicated very soon.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Sheppard or myself directly with any questions you may have.  Our contact information can be found below.

Sincerely,

Erin Eaton

Letter from Interim Superintendent, Jill Simmons

We Miss our Students!

If you have not had the chance to check out our video, please do!  We miss you and hope you are staying healthy and positive during this time!  This should bring a smile to your face!

At-Home Suggestions for the School Closure

While on this break from school, we have some suggestions that will make the time at home with your student a bit easier and will help the transition when we return to school next month. 

  1. Encourage your child to read twenty minutes in the morning and twenty minutes before bed. Find books that are relative to their interest and their grade level. Consider checking out books electronically through our public library to read on your device. Westland Library Link
  2. Limit phone use during the day. Students are not on their phone during the school day, so do your best to restrict phone access while we have this time off from school. This also means monitoring their use of social media. 
  3. Do your best to monitor your child’s media exposure. With the current events that are going on right now, some of the information may be too complex for children to understand and may cause some anxiety for children. Discuss what is going on in age appropriate terms, answer questions, but do not overwhelm your child with information.
  4. There are many online resources available to parents and teachers during this school shut down. Please look at the link for access to many online resources to help assist with the educational process during this time.  Online Resources
  5. For those families who do not have internet access in their home, Comcast is providing internet essentials for those in need. Please check their website for more information. Comcast Internet Essentials
  6. Your child can access Compass Learning from home to continue working at his or her math and reading level.  Your child should be able to log-in, but if not, here is a link on how to log-in.
