All offices of Deckerville Community Schools will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, August 20th from 8:30am to 11:30am. This includes the administrative office, the elementary and high school offices, and the athletic office. All employees, including office staff, will be involved in ALICE Active Shooter Response Training during this time, facilitated by the Sanilac County Sheriff Department. This is part of several safety initiatives that will take place throughout the school year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
It is with much sorrow that I have accepted the resignation of Yvonne O’Connor as Elementary Principal of Deckerville Community Schools, to be finalized at a special Board meeting on Tuesday, August 13th at 7:00pm. Her final day of employment will be Thursday, August 22nd. Mrs. O’Connor is a dedicated professional educator who has contributed to increased instructional rigor and encouraged the use of best instructional practices among our teaching and paraprofessional staff. During her five years of service to our district, this has led to a tremendous positive influence on the educational outcomes of our students. She will be sorely missed! Though we regret her departure, we congratulate Mrs. O’Connor in her new position as Elementary Principal of Ubly Community Schools. We wish her well, and are confident of her success in her latest professional endeavors. In addition to finalizing Mrs. O’Connor’s resignation, we will discuss ideas and options of replacing her position at a special Board meeting next Tuesday, August 13th at 7:00pm.

Dear Deckerville Community Schools Family and Community, This update addresses continued concerns over student safety, as well as providing important information in regard to ongoing criminal activity in our community and the District’s disposition in regard to Deckerville students who may have been involved in these activities. In recent days and weeks there have been several incidents of illegal activity in Deckerville and its surroundings. Some of these activities have involved current and former students either directly or indirectly. None of these incidents have occurred on District property. Law enforcement officials are continuing to investigate. Unfortunately, things that occur outside of District facilities can often have an adverse effect during the school day, as was the case on Monday, April 15th, when our facility was placed on lockdown. This was in response to an altercation that took place between two students in the high school. Law enforcement was notified and responded immediately. The district remained on lockdown until searches were conducted and until both parties were confirmed to be secure. At no point in time was a direct threat made to students or staff, and there was no “physical” altercation. In light of all of this, during the school day, I am asking our staff to remain on a heightened state of alert for the remainder of the week. Outdoor recess is cancelled until Monday and the pre-school field trip will now be transported by bus, rather than on foot as originally planned. After school activities and sporting events are not being cancelled, however, if a parent or guardian chooses to withhold their student from a practice or event this week, there will be no athletic penalty. Sincerely, Michael S. Hugan Superintendent Deckerville Community Schools
April 15th, 2019 Dear Deckerville Community Schools Family and Community, At approximately 10:30am, Monday, April 15th, Deckerville Community Schools was placed on secure lock down. This was in response to an altercation that took place between two students in the high school. Law enforcement was notified and responded immediately. The district remained on lock-down until searches were conducted and until both parties were confirmed to be secure. The situation is now safe and stable, and students are attending their regular classes. Rest assured, nothing is more important than the safety of our students. Sincerely, Michael S. Hugan Superintendent Deckerville Community Schools

March 21st, 2019 Inclement Weather Make Up Days Dear Deckerville Community School Members, As you know, we experienced particularly harsh winter weather conditions during the months of January and February this year, bringing our total number of school cancellations to 11 days. Normally, the State allows for up to six cancellations per calendar year. In addition, school districts may apply for a waiver that grants up to an additional three days to be forgiven. Deckerville Community Schools has already applied for and received this waiver, so we have been forgiven 9 days total. This leaves two days that we will have to make up. In reviewing all options, I have decided that the least disruptive option for families will be to hold our first make-up day on, Monday, April 22nd, which is the day after Easter Sunday. On Monday, April 22nd, school will be in session from 8:05am until 2:57pm. The Tech Center will also be open on that day. Our second make-up day will be held on Thursday, June 13th. On Thursday, June 13th, school will be in session from 8:05 until 11:30am. I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause Deckerville families. There has been much talk of granting schools two additional days due to the two days that Michigan was declared to be under emergency. However, as of today, no decision has been made by the legislature. If the State legislature ends up granting us two more days, then we will revert back to our normal school calendar and not have to make up any days. Sincerely, Michael S. Hugan Superintendent Deckerville Community Schools

To: All Staff/Parents From: Michal S. Hugan RE: Extra Precautions Date: March 1st, 2019 Yesterday afternoon, a “threat” was found in the boys’ bathroom across from the high school gym. Although the threat was poorly composed and misspelled, it clearly involved the word “shooter” and the date of March 1st. The words were quickly erased, and the incident was investigated by Mr. Connelly. Mr. Connelly concluded that the threat was not credible. Although Chief Willis and I do not feel that a lock down is necessary, in light of recent events, we feel that extra precautions are warranted. To that end, we have asked for police presence on campus today. I have also informed our offices and kitchen staff, and cancelled outdoor recess for today. Teachers, if you have an outdoor egress in your classroom, please be sure it is secured. Thank you for your vigilance. Michael S. Hugan Superintendent Deckerville Community Schools
