Welcome to February!

The month started with a lot of snow! It was so nice to see the kids enjoy a couple of snow days last week. They had great stories to share on Friday about sledding, skiing, playing outside and warming up inside afterward. Then the weather turned cold and we were stuck inside for Friday recess. We are looking forward to the more normal temperatures this week and getting outside for winter recess!

 

PTO Heart Sale: The Morgan Volunteers PTO is hosting a sale of candy hearts for the Valentine holiday. Students should receive a flyer home today or tomorrow with order forms for the candy. A copy of the order form is also listed below.

 

Next PTO Meeting: Tuesday, February 15, starting at 6:30 pm. The PTO will be reviewing initial plans for a Daddy/Daughter Dance this spring; potential color run in late May; Mother/Son even in late spring; and much more! Join in person or online to get the information early and contribute to the organization of these events.

Alternate Entry Until Further Notice: The ice and snow are not leaving anytime soon. To keep our kids safe on the way into and out of school, we will be moving to an alternate entry system starting tomorrow.

 

Grades 3 - 6 enter through the main entrance doors

 

Grades K-2 enter through Door 7

 

These grades will exit the same way. There is no reason to walk around the building with the snow/ice in the way. Until the weather improves, students will enter and exit Morgan like this each day.

 

Teachers will no longer be at their outside doors, but will be in their classrooms and/or greeting in the hallway at their classroom doors. This will also stop the tracking in of ice/snow/water into the classrooms.

 

Reminder of No School: Week of February 21 - 25. This is mid-winter break. School will resume on Monday, February 28.

 

COVID Reminders: If your child tests positive for COVID, the MCHD starts quarantine on the day symptoms start and/or the date of positive test. This can be a positive home test. Quarantine is for 5 days from start of symptoms and/or positive test. Students can return to school on day 6 if they wear a mask for days 6 - 10.

 

Your child can stream live at various times throughout the school day (check with your child's teacher) if they are feeling well enough to do so. Only COVID related absences are provided the option to stream live. Streaming requires a positive COVID test, and/or direct contact with a positive family member that results in symptoms developing for a student.

 

You can reach out to the Morgan Office with questions on quarantine.

 

Macomb County Health Department Rules on Fever/Vomiting/Diarrhea (repeat from last week):

The health department has always had the rule of: 24-hours fever, vomit, diarrhea free before returning to work/school. If your child vomits at school, they must remain home until they have stopped vomiting without the help of medication for 24-hours. The same applies to fever. Students must be fever free for 24-hours without the use of medication.

 

Have a good week!
