Dear Huskie Students and Families,
It's my sincerest hope all of you are at home, staying safe and healthy! To the parents and relatives of our Huskie students working on the frontlines during this time of emergency, please know we truly appreciate all of you and the services you're providing all of us in these very challenging times.
Earlier today, Governor Whitmer held a press conference communicating the continuance of our school year. The details of her message were to close all school buildings for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year delivering face-to-face instruction. Although this is emotionally straining on many levels, we are empowered to provide support and educational opportunities for our students. We are working diligently at this time to create those plans of action as we learn more about the requirements of the Executive Order.
Please know we are working collaboratively as a staff to prepare a new model of the delivery of instruction.
Please be assured Breckenridge Schools will continue to work to support families who don't have the connection or devices required to complete online learning or when an online approach is not appropriate. We will make sure your students are provided quality educational experiences.
Breckenridge Schools continues to work with our regional partners within Gratiot-Isabella RESD. Our regional team ackowledges that "together we can achieve more!" Consequently, please understand many meetings are taking place to provide support and educational services for your child. Please be patient and provide us additional time to complete our plans moving forward. More detailed information will be coming to you.
Please take a moment to complete the survey we are sending so we know your capabilities and needs.
Kimberly Thompson, Superintendent
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH OPPORTUNITY: Due to school not being in session, Breckenridge Schools will provide free breakfasts and lunches to students age 18 and under. Meals can be picked up in front of the Elementary School on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. until noon. Bus drivers will also be driving their normal bus routes on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays delivering meals to student's homes. The busses will depart the school between 8:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and when the bus pulls in front of each house they will honk their horn letting you know they have arrived and we ask that you please come to the bus to collect the meals. If you have any questions please email Michele Collins at firstname.lastname@example.org
BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION: The Elementary and Middle/High School are enrolled in the Box Tops for Education program. Download the ALL-NEW Box Tops app from the Play Store, shop as you normally would, then simply scan your store receipts to find participating products. The app will automatically credit your school's Box Tops earnings online. Physical box tops clips are being phased out of production but may continue to be found on many products throughout the store. Send your clipped Box Tops, along with any unexpired clips you may have at home, with your student or you can drop them off at the Elementary or Middle/High School offices.
