District Communication COVID-19 March 24, 2020

Dear Cros-Lex Families:

 

Yesterday Governor Gretchen Whitmer held a press conference addressing the most recent Michigan developments and directives in the COVID-19 pandemic.  She has ordered a “Stay Home. Stay Safe. Save Lives” directive. Click HERE to view the document. 

 

Schools along with all non-essential businesses are now directed to stay closed until April 13, 2020. What this means for Cros-Lex Schools is the soonest we can return is Tuesday April 14th. You can read the press release here which also links to the executive order to gain further details on how the order may relate to you and your family: Click HERE to view the Executive Order issued March 23, 2020. 

 

The Cros-Lex Free Food for Kids program is considered to be essential and will continue providing nourishment to children in need.  Please note, beginning on Tuesday, March 31st, meal distribution will only take place on Tuesdays for the remainder of the school closure. Take-home bags will include breakfast and lunch meals for seven days.

 

Locations and times of take-home meal distributions are:

  • Curbside at Croswell-Lexington  High School at the front south entrance from 10:30 am-  1:30 pm
  • Mobile delivery will continue at Grant Park on Wildcat Rd - 10:30 am -1:30 pm.

 

When coming to pick up meal bags, PLEASE stay in your vehicle and if possible pop your trunk so our staff can place the bags inside for you. It is vitally important we abide by the recommendations not to congregate and to avoid contact with one another to mitigate any possible COVID-19 exposure.

 

Additionally, in order to prevent the spread of the disease, all Croswell-Lexington Community Schools property will be off-limits to guests for the safety of our community. As of yesterday, Michigan is in the top five states in the nation in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

 

On the educational legislative side of the Covid-19 crisis, the annual M-STEP state assessment will likely be waived for this school year. The State of Michigan applied for a waiver to be released from those assessment tests this year and it was granted by the federal government. Also, the College Board's AP Program has announced a new, at-home testing option for Advanced Placement (AP) students. Students will be allowed to take a 45-minute online exam at home for this school year only. We will be working with students that do not have online access at home. More information to come before testing.

 

I want to thank our custodial staff for thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting our school buildings. Also, I want to thank our cafeteria staff, maintenance & grounds employees, food service director Ms. Peters, and the professional/support staff who continue to play an essential role to distribute food to our families during Free Breakfast/Lunch Pick-Up. In addition, I want to thank our teachers and administrators for making the best out of a difficult situation by providing students with enrichment learning options. 

 

To date, our professional instructional staff are continuously working hard behind the scenes adjusting their lessons and preparing instructional resources for students/parents to access in the coming days for students to be working on. We anticipate the next round of instructional lessons and resources to be available online Monday, April 6th or pick-up on Tuesday, April 7th. 

 

Finally, I want to thank all parents for doing your best in difficult circumstances and working with your children to complete the distributed educational resources and activities. Together, we will all get through this crisis. 

 

On behalf of the Croswell-Lexington Community School District, I want everyone to know how much we miss all of our students and look forward to welcoming everyone back together again, healthy, revived, and united to build upon the amazing Pioneer spirit!

 

Stay safe, healthy, and positive!

Daniel Gilbertson

Covid-19 Update

Dear Cros-Lex Families:

 

Your Croswell Lexington School District wants to support and take care of any and all families needing assistance as we face the current unprecedented challenges that this school closure brings. We are all in this together.

 

Since the news came that we would be closing our schools, district staff and school board members have come together to plan how we can best serve our community. Please continue to check our website for updates. This is a time of rapidly changing information.

 

We want to continue to feed our children - Starting this week.

  • The Cros-Lex Food service department will provide cold breakfasts and sack lunches at no charge for all students.
  • We will have food pickup for all students at these locations on Tuesday, March 17 and Friday, March 20:  Grant Township Park (7942 Wildcat Rd. Grant Twp. MI. 48032) at 10:30-1:00 pm  and also at  Cros-Lex H.S. parking lot at 10:30-1:00 p.m.
  • Beginning on Monday March 23, we will do food distributions three times a week,  Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the same times and locations...
  • On Fridays we will provide three breakfasts & three lunches to include Saturday and Sunday.

 

Free Meals are available to children 18 years of age and under or persons up to age 26 who are enrolled in an educational program for the mentally or physically disabled that is recognized by a State or local public educational agency.

 

By now, many of us have become knowledgeable about the facts as we know them on COVID-19, so please continue to follow the CDC and MDHHS guidelines to mitigate and reduce the spread of this very dangerous virus.  

 

Last, our teachers and administrators have been working on our plan for supplemental/enrichment learning for students and we will be sharing that information tomorrow.

 

Hopeful everyone is staying safe and healthy!
