Hello Milan Community,
On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, Governor Whitmer rolled out Executive Order 2020-142: Provision of PreK-12 Education for the 2020-2021 School Year and the MI Safe Schools: Michigan’s 2020-2021 Return to School Roadmap.
The administrative team and staff of Milan Area Schools have been working diligently to develop a local plan for the return to school. Now that we have verified that our plan is in compliance with the Governor’s guidance, we want to share an infographic that details the plan for MAS.
While the infographic does not include all of the operational details, it does provide information about our intended method of instruction under each of the MI Safe Start Plan phases. You will notice that Phase 4 can be addressed using the Hybrid Model or Face-to-Face instruction. The district intends to operate under the Face-to-Face scenario if at all possible.
The district will continue to work closely with the Michigan Department of Education, state health officials, the local government, community leaders, families, and teachers to develop a Preparedness Plan that considers all aspects of how our school community might be affected by COVID-19 and the Governor’s guidelines. Our scenarios must be flexible and able to be scaled up or down depending on local conditions. No matter our particular context or scenario, our mission is to prepare individual learners to realize the best version of themselves.
Over the summer, MAS teams will be reflecting on what best practices and lessons learned can be carried forward as we plan for the 2020-2021 school year. These teams will be working to provide details for each scenario. More fully detailed plans will be available in early to mid August.

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
