Dear Deckerville Schools Community. We are aware that several local news outlets are reporting that Deckerville Community Schools, and in particular, Deckerville Elementary School, is currently experiencing an “outbreak” of COVID-19. Although we have had several cases reported to us since January 4th, the majority have been in our high school or among staff members, not our elementary school. Many of these cases have been students or staff that were already quarantined before becoming symptomatic. One new case was reported today, originating from a high school student who was already quarantined. It is unclear why these news outlets consider the number of cases in our school district to be notable at this time. No news organization has contacted school officials, and our COVID-19 dashboard, located on our website, has been updated regularly. Please help us to continue keep our schools safe: Here are actions you can take: • Wear a mask (covering mouth and nose) when around people with whom you do not live. • Practice social distancing (maintaining a distance of 6 feet apart). • Practice frequent handwashing (using soap for 20 seconds or hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol). • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or with the inside of your elbow and immediately wash your hands. • Stay home if you are sick.
The Deckerville Community School Board is serving notice that there is one vacant seat currently open on the Board. Any citizen of age 18 years or older who resides within the geographic boundaries of Deckerville Community Schools is eligible to be appointed by the Board to this seat. If you are interested in serving your school community as a school board member, you must submit a letter of interest either in person to the District Administrative Office, or via e-mail to email@example.com by Thursday, January 21st at 12:00pm. You will also need to attend the next Regular School Board meeting which is scheduled to take place on Monday, January 25th at 7:00pm in the high school library. At this meeting, the Board will appoint a new trustee for the vacant seat.

The number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in Michigan have recently trended upward. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), hospitals, and local health officials are asking all residents to take steps to prevent a surge in cases that could overwhelm the hospital system. Current orders from the MDHHS now require students in K-5 classrooms to wear masks while in class. Teachers are encouraged to allow for frequent mask breaks for students of all grade levels. The complete MDHHS order can be found at https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-98178_98455-541962--,00.html.

Just a friendly reminder that Deckerville Elementary Parent / Teacher Conferences will take place on Thursday Oct 15 for our current traditional face-to-face students and will be conducted as a tele conference. Over the past 2 weeks teachers have been communicating with parents for an appointment schedule because there are no in-person elementary conferences this year. Students are dismissed at 12:15 on Thursday Oct 15, 2020.
October 15, 2020 Parent-Teacher Conferences Dear Parents, Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on October 15, 2020. Teachers will be available to speak with you from 12:30 P.M. until 3:30 P.M. and from 4:30 P.M. until 7:30 P.M. Due to the unprecedented COVID situation, we are setting forth some guidelines in order to keep both you and the staff safe. First, masks will be required inside the building at all times, and masks must be worn properly, covering both the mouth and nose. Next, we ask that no more than two people attend the conference. Disinfecting wipes will be available in each classroom and we ask that you take one and wipe down your seating area before the conference begins. Some of the teachers may have a plexiglass divider on the table during the conference. If you do not feel comfortable having a face to face conference, please contact your student’s teacher to set up a phone conference or a virtual meeting. The following teachers have decided to hold conferences virtually or by phone: Mr. Brabant, Mrs. Pavlovics, Ms. Roggenbuck, and Mrs. Wolschleger. Please contact the teacher directly to schedule a virtual conference. We thank you for your understanding during these difficult times. Sincerely, Josh Stern Deckerville Jr./Sr. High School Principal

On Friday, September 25th, Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-183, which required all students in grades K-5 to wear a face mask in classrooms, beginning on Monday, October 5th. Prior executive orders had recommended, but not required, a face mask in grades K-5. On Friday, October 2nd, the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that Governor Whitmer did not have the authority to issue COVID-19 Executive Orders after April 30th, 2020, under the Emergency Management Act. The Court also ruled that the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act, which is the basis for issuing Executive Orders, is unconstitutional. In regards to this decision, Deckerville Community Schools will follow the recommendation of our law firm, which, until further clarity is received, is to continue to comply with our board approved COVID-19 Preparedness and Response plan. This is exactly how we started the school year, and we have been quite successful thus far in implementing this plan. In regard to the wearing of masks, K-5 students in self-contained classrooms will not be required to wear masks while in class.

Hello, this is Michael Hugan, Superintendent of Deckerville Community Schools. I am calling to remind you that tomorrow, Monday, August 31st, Deckerville Community Schools will begin face to face instruction. The doors will be opened at 7:45am, and school will begin at 8:05am and end at 3:00pm. All students will need to wear masks on busses and when entering the building. Kindergarten-5th grade students will need to wear masks until their teachers allow them to take them off once inside the classroom. Parents of Kindergarten through 2nd grade will be allowed to accompany their students to the classroom door, however, they will also be required to wear a mask in the building. Parents of 3rd-6th may drop off their students at the main elementary door and the students will go to the breakfast room first on their way to their classroom. We are excited to have the majority of our students back once again. Face to face instruction is what we do best at Deckerville Community Schools, and teachers, as well as other school workers, are looking forward to interacting with the students that they have sorely missed since mid-March. If you have questions, please contact the Elementary school or High School office. Thank you, and have a good evening.

Deckerville Community Schools would like to extend our thanks to the community in getting out the vote and passing our bond proposal. It was a resounding success. We had very high voter turnout for a primary election, 56%, and the bond passed by a very healthy margin of 34%. Once again, the residents of the Village of Deckerville and its surrounding townships have proven that they value the education of their students!
On the Tuesday, August 4th, 2020, primary ballot, Deckerville Community Schools has included a bond proposal for the voters of our school district. A bond proposal is a State-approved funding process for a set of projects. When the bonds are sold, they generate revenue for district improvements. Our last bond proposal, passed in 2011 has a current debt levy of 0.54 mills, which is by far the lowest in Sanilac County. With a proposed increase of 0.46 mills, the new millage that would be levied beginning in 2021 would be 1.00 mills ($1.00 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation), and would remain the lowest debt rate of our county’s school districts. A house with a valuation of $70,000 would see a tax increase of about $16.10, or about $1.34 per month. If passed, this bond proposal will generate $2.43 million in school improvement funds. Deckerville Community Schools has a long and consistent history of fiscal responsibility, however, our facilities, though maintained, have continued to age. The revenue generated by this bond proposal will allow the district to address a number of infrastructure issues. These will include a partial roof replacement, band room remodeling and upgrades, restroom renovations, mechanical equipment improvements, replacement of critical galvanized piping, and asbestos abatement if needed. We will also replace the bleachers and floor in our main gymnasium, which were originally installed in 1964. Other improvements will include secure entry renovations and a public address system upgrade, two very important security considerations. Finally, we will also include instructional upgrades such as STEM lab renovations and classroom technology purchases. Projects will begin, if possible, in the summer of 2021. Please remember to vote tomorrow, Tuesday, August 4th!

Good evening. This is Michael Hugan, Superintendent of Deckerville Community Schools. I am calling to thank our school community for all the support from you that we have received during these unprecedented times. Our food distribution, which ended on June 3rd, was a success, and we were able to provide two meals per day to families throughout the last quarter of the regularly scheduled school year. I would also like to inform you that at this time, school is scheduled to resume with a normal schedule at the end of August. Although we have received little guidance as to what will be required of us in terms of safety against communicable diseases such as COVID-19, our administration has formed a team that has been meeting and planning to deal with several different opening scenarios, including providing education in a more coordinated and consistent manner in case of another prolonged shutdown. Please check our live feed and Facebook page regularly for important instructions regarding picking up personal student belongings and other information. COVID-19 notwithstanding, we still consider the 2019-2020 school year to be an overall success, and are looking forward to the return of our students. I am proud to live and work in such a supportive, strong, and resilient community. Thank you, and have a great evening!

Good evening. This is Michael Hugan, Superintendent of Deckerville Community Schools. I am calling to address the Governor’s Executive Order 2020-35, which effectively physically closes our school district through the reminder of the 2019-2020 school year. As part of the provisions of this order, the staff and administration of Deckerville Community Schools are forming and implementing various means to insure that our teachers remain in touch with their students, and continue to provide meaningful educational activities. These student connections may come in various forms, including creative use of online resources, as well as physical packets of materials. Please be patient as we develop ways to connect with students. Deckerville is a strong community, and with your cooperation, I am certain we will overcome this crisis. This information is also posted on the live feed of our web site and on our Facebook page. Please pay attention for future updates. Thank you.

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
