 Good afternoon Titan Families,

I want to start off by congratulating our Stevenson Titan Marching Band, who took to the field at Troy HS on October 13th, at MSBOA Marching Band Festival. The Titans received Division 1 ratings with straight A’s from the three adjudicators, which is incredibly rare, and a number of A+ ratings in that bunch. I am incredibly proud of our students that make up the band and color guard, the work they’ve put into this and their commitment to musical excellence. My hat is off to them, their families, and of course our Director, Mr. Sekich, and his team for the work they put into his season! They were recently recognized for their work at the UCS Board of Education meeting held on October 25th.  Congratulations to our Titans!

 Today was the last day of the first marking period.  While grades are calculated by semester, those marking periods add up, accounting for 40% of that semester grade. My team of teachers has been incredible about making work and expectations accessible for students.  Work is available daily on Schoology. In short, students have more access now than ever, and need to take advantage of that fact!  Please take the weekend and review grades with your student.  If they’re struggling, they need to check Schoology, they need to study what they’re missing, learn it – whether they get credit or not. Some teachers have late work and redo policies, and some of the work missed may be past that opportunity. It is still learning that needs to happen as it will be expected knowledge on student midterm exams.  There are just under 8 more weeks until the end of the semester, but the first big check-in is now.  If they’re not already, it’s time to kick it into gear.  If they have, it’s time to keep their foot on the pedal! There is a lot of the first semester left, so let’s make the most of it.    

During November, Stevenson High School will distribute reports cards electronically.  The first marking period grades will be sent electronically to families at the end of the day on Tuesday, November 9, 2021.

 To receive the report cards, parents will need to have a secure PowerSchool account. Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one prior to Thursday, November 4, 2021. The report cards will then be automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.  If you already have a PowerSchool account, you do not need to take any further action. The report card will be automatically sent to you.

 Please note: If you have a child in elementary school, those report cards will be issued at the end of the day on Thursday, November 18, 2021, after scheduled parent-teacher conferences.

 Stevenson families you may have noticed that our process for notifying families of COVID exposures has changed. Macomb County’s Health Department released a new and complex process for managing probable or confirmed COVID-19 exposures. The final page of the link above shows the flowchart for who must quarantine, who can monitor, and the possible avenues for reducing or eliminating that quarantine given the appropriate conditions.  The many options made calling, as we used to, too challenging. Instead, we utilize a multi-tiered approach.  If your student is a direct contact, you will receive a text message, robo-call, and Email from me notifying you of that contact. The Email will have the bulk of the information including the variety of options parents have to afford you the opportunity for you to read, digest that information, and then ask more informed questions afterwards should you have them.  For most, it is a simple as sending a vaccination proof, a proof of past-positive, or following the process to test daily to return immediately or on day five to return on day 8.  If you have questions on this process, we are happy to take the time to help walk you through it.  We do have a health paraprofessional helping us with this task.  Please feel free to reach out to her at any time.  Tina.Reed@uticak12.org.  Her hours are 9:00 – 3:00 on days when students are in school.

Critical to our keeping kids in school is knowing when to keep your student at home.  Whether you’ve been exposed to COVID or not, anyone who is sick should stay home.  Whether it is COVID, the flu, or other ailments, if you have more than one of the minor symptoms (headache, runny nose, fever, etc.) or ANY of the major symptoms (including cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or loss of taste or smell, your student MUST stay home.  That and following Macomb County Dept. of Health Mitigation Strategies will help keep our students safe, well and in school!
