From The Principal:

Greetings Hornet families!


Our updated self-screening process for students and staff is still an important protocol everyone is asked to follow.  Each day, before you send your child to school, we are asking you to complete the screening process for/with your child.  This is for the protection of your child, their friends at school and our dedicated UCS team.  Please screen your child daily before leaving or sending them to school.  If your child shows symptoms of COVID-19, DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL. The revised protocols can be found at this link.  If your student is a close contact of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, you will be notified and your student will be quarantined according to the CDC & Macomb County Health Department guidelines.

The safety of our students and staff is our top priority.  Lockers will not be in use at this time.  To maximize space in the classroom, please remind your student to avoid bringing unnecessary items to school.  We will continue to follow the appropriate safety guidelines and protocols.  This includes daily pre-screening for all staff and students, wearing mask/face coverings, frequent handwashing, use of hand sanitizer, alcohol wipes and other required PPE.  While in the building, we will distance students to the greatest extent possible.  Assigned seating will be enforced in the classroom and in the cafeteria for contact tracing purposes.

All the best,

Mrs. Beebe
