Hello Milan Community,
REQUIRED Survey at the end of this message.
At the August 5th Special Meeting of the Board of Education, the Board approved two very important documents. The 2020-2021 Instructional Model Plan and the 2020-2021 Preparedness and Response Plan.
The following Instructional Model Plan was approved:
Phases 1-3: Full Virtual
Phase 4: Hybrid
Phase 5-6: Full Face-to-Face
Phases 1-6: Full Virtual Option with Semester Commitment (Moves May be Limited at Semester Time)
Further, the following model was approved for the start of the school year:
Phase 4: Hybrid with Full Virtual Option with Semester Commitment (Moves May be Limited at Semester Time)
This approval was made after hearing comments from the public and receiving a presentation from Superintendent Girbach.

The Preparedness and Response Plan is a document required by the State of Michigan. It details Milan Area School’s compliance with the Governor’s Return to School Roadmap. The plan answers many of the questions you might have about PPE, hygiene, spacing, movement, access, screening of students & staff, testing protocols for students & staff, responding to positive cases among staff and students, food service, gatherings, extracurriculars, athletics, cleaning, busing, and medically vulnerable students & staff.

These two documents will be helpful as you make a decision regarding the educational model for each of your students for the 2020-2021 school year. I understand that some questions have not been answered. Many of those questions cannot be answered until we know how many students select each option.
There will be a parent/guardian Zoom information session on Monday (8-10-20) at 5:00 PM. (see details below)

Welcome! This is Sean DeSarbo, Principal of Paddock Elementary School.
Due to the COVID-19 closure, we will not be able to host our annual Kindergarten Orientation Night in person. This is very sad for us, because we love to meet our newest families in person to begin to develop the important school/home relationships. While we will not be able to meet you in person, we fully understand the importance of learning about our school, so we have created a slide show that will provide you with a virtual Orientation presentation. You can click through the slides and watch the videos at your own pace.
Please take the time to view the orientation slide show here: Kindergarten Orientation Slide Show
We will also not be able to conduct traditional paper and pencil registration processes for next year's Kindergarteners and Young 5 students. In order to get to know you better, we have created a preliminary survey that will allow us to gain some basic information about your student. Completed paperwork and necessary documentation will be collected at a later time.
Please complete this survey: Preliminary Kindergarten Registration Survey
