Dear Paw Paw Families,
Please be reminded that the week of January 4-8 will be a remote learning week for all PPPS students. There are a very small number of classrooms that will have some students in on a limited number of days during that week. Parents of those students impacted have already been contacted and provided with the necessary information.
Please keep in mind that during the remote learning week there is still a possibility that a "snow day" could be called in response to severe weather conditions. Many of our teachers need to have access to their classrooms in order to deliver their instruction on remote learning days. If road conditions are so poor on a given day that they prevent safe travel for staff members, then a "snow day" may be called. If this were to happen, we would utilize our normal modes for communicating with families, including School Messenger phone calls, to inform everyone of the closure. Calls would be sent out by 6:00 a.m. If a snow day is called, all buildings and programs will be closed for the day, including the Paw Paw Home eLearning program.
On January 11, in-person instruction will resume for all grade levels, including grades 9-12. High school students will return to their normal red and white day schedules at that time.
I also want to remind parents of the importance of performing daily health checks on their children before sending them to school. Please see THIS FLOWCHART on the PPPS website for guidance. In addition, I want to make sure that all our parents and staff members are aware that our local Health Department mandates that anyone who travels out of the country adheres to a 14-day quarantine upon their return. This mandate applies to students as well as adults.
I sincerely hope that our students and their families have been enjoying this holiday season, and I wish all of you a very Happy New Year!
