MI Dept. Of Education & School Closing

Dear Cros-Lex Families,

 

First I want to let everyone know we anticipate improved road conditions will be safe enough to have everyone back at school tomorrow on February 8th. It will still be quite cold in the morning so students should be dressed appropriately.

 

I also want to send everyone an update on how school cancellations can impact adding days of instruction to the end of the school year.

 

Michigan K-12 districts must provide 180 days of instruction and a minimum of 1098 hours of instruction within the minimum allotted number of days. Of those 180 days, we are allowed six days in which we can cancel school for inclement weather or conditions beyond our control. Our District calendar included an extra day of instruction to reach 181 days of instruction which allows us 7 total cancellation days.

 

As of today, we have closed our schools a total of 10 days this school year.  We are allowed to request an additional three cancellation days which would not count against us from the state, providing we have a good reason for closing. This requires a request to the state superintendent for a special waiver.

 

The Croswell-Lexington Community Schools will be asking for this waiver.  The student’s safety is our number one priority and will always be considered first and foremost.

 

If and when there is a need to make up lost time in the classroom, we will communicate with you as soon as we can on what that plan will look like.

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this winter challenge together.  We anticipate improved road conditions tomorrow, and we look forward to seeing our students' and staffs’ smiling faces on Friday!

 

Sincerely,

Daniel Gilbertson

Superintendent

House Fire Destroys Cros-Lex Family Home

A member of our Cros-Lex family had a house fire on Wednesday, January 23rd.  A school bus driver, Kelli Bishop, and her 7th-grade daughter lost everything in the fire.   Anyone wishing to help this family in their time of need can send/drop off gift cards to the Cros-Lex Bus Garage.  There is an account at Croswell Eastern Michigan Bank set up to accept monetary donations.  Any support for this family is greatly appreciated.
