Hello #PowerUpMMS families:
I hope you are safe, well, and healthy!
If you or your students have social media accounts, this is a great way to stay connected to their school and teachers. Follow #PowerUpMMS on Facebook and Twitter, "like" Milan Middle School on Facebook for the latest updates and resources, or follow Milan_Middle_School on Instagram for some pictures of staff. We have been and will continue to post videos, pictures, and udates. Teachers are also sending emails and sharing resources, collaborating opportunities, and enrichment work through their Google classrooms. Your students can check their emails or online classrooms through their Google accounts on any device connected to the internet.
This week's academic work links, activities, and guidance are listed below.
Above all, it is important that our students' basic needs are being met. Having a sense of routine and schedule can be a big support and ease the tranisiton from and back to school. Having time for reading, problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, and fitness are important. In addition, there's always time for students to learn about teamwork, work ethic, and responsiblity, so coming up with chores and ways they can help out around the house will be mutually benefical (and you can always blame the chores on me).
Stay safe, well, and healthy.
Missing my staff and students,
Shanna Spickard, Proud (and lonely) MMS Principal
As a result of COVID-19 and the closing of school buildings for the 2019-2020 School Year, school districts must submit a Continuity of Learning and COVID-19 Response Plan (“Plan”) in order to continue to receive state aid for operations. Although schools are closed and not providing in-person instruction, teaching and learning must continue. Michigan educators have been called to provide our students with continued learning.
The following documents have been approved by the Washtenaw Intermediate School District and have been submitted to the State of Michigan:
District Continuity of Learning and COVID Response Plan
District Continuity of Learning Instructional Plan
Milan Area Schools is a community committed to achieving academic excellence for all learners through research, collaboration, and continuous improvement.
Michigan law requires that every 7th Grader and every new student entering school be immunized against specific diseases. Parents/guardians that choose to waive these requirements, must follow these rules. The requirements state that parents seeking a non-medical waiver for school-required immunizations must go to the local health department for a discussion regarding vaccines. Then the health department will issue a non-medical waiver. The original waiver needs to be delivered to Milan Middle School in order to be fullly compliant with the law.
Medical waiver forms can be obtained from school and must be signed by your student’s physician. They can also be found at www.michigan.gov/immunize.
The Washtenaw County Health Department number is 734-544-6700.
The Monroe County Health Department number is 734-240-7800.
