Welcome to Cros-Lex Community Schools
March 19, 2019
Dear Cros-Lex Families:
The purpose of this message is to communicate to all families and employees of the Croswell-Lexington Community School District updates related to the Michigan Department of Education’s decision on make-up days due winter school closings, and share with you next year’s school calendar.
Over the past couple of months, the Croswell-Lexington Education Association worked together with the District Administrative Leadership Team reviewing the input from the community and employees prior to reaching an agreement on the school calendar for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year. At the March 18th Regular School Board Meeting, the Croswell-Lexington Community Schools Board of Education officially approved the 2019-2020 school calendar. Please see attached calendar HERE.
I want to thank everyone who took the time to provide us input leading to the development of the school calendar, and assure you the final outcome was impacted by the rationale and input shared from our parents, community members, and employees.
Recently, the Michigan Department of Education waived for our school district (along with many others) three additional days of instruction beyond the total allotted number of days of six, to reach nine total days of school that are not required to be made up. Since our previous calendar built in an additional day of instruction beyond 180 days (181), the district is required to only make up 2 additional days of instruction.
As long as there are no additional days of school canceled due to unforeseen emergencies, the 2018-19 school calendar will be extended with the last day of school scheduled on Tuesday, June 18th. Since the district still meets the required 1098 hours of instruction, the last three days of the school year will be scheduled ½ days of instruction.
I personally want to express to everyone my gratefulness for your understanding of the difficult decision it is to close school when dangerous weather conditions arise, and assure you that student and employee safety will always be the most important priority before deciding to close our schools.
I hope you will join me in welcoming the Spring Season, and again I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve your students here at Cros-Lex!
