From The Principal
Kenneth L. Cucchi III

Good afternoon Titan Families,

We had a very productive two weeks with our students.  In the building we went through the first part of our state mandated testing for juniors and the testing required for sophomores.  Except for the SAT, we will not be doing makeups for those tests. This is a long and information packed message, as there are some significant changes from the county and state on COVID quarantine protocols and some important reminders and pieces of information. 

As we returned to in-person learning Monday, safety is our priority!  Please reinforce the following items with your student:

Please ensure students are self-screening every day using the UCS Student Self-Screening Protocol
When reporting to school again all students must be wearing masks, and wearing them correctly covering both the mouth and the nose, at all times while on school grounds.  
Students should be encouraged to regularly wash their hands, and wash them well.
Take advantage of the hand sanitizer available throughout the building and in classrooms. 
Take steps to monitor your contact and interaction with other students.
Just be smart!  We want to return to school and remain in school.  We ask that you not only remain diligent while in school, but also take necessary steps and precautions while out of school.    

UCS, consistent with the county Health Department and MDHHS, has updated our COVID 19 Quarantine protocols.  Please know that the Macomb County Health Department has recently issued a notable modification to the quarantine window for persons identified as close contact to a confirmed positive case of COVID-19.  This revised window is applied effective immediately for both staff and students:

Close contacts are required to quarantine at home for fourteen (14) days after the last contact with a positive person (previously 10 days).
Day zero (0) is the day of last contact and the quarantine period concludes at midnight on day fourteen (14).
Following the full fourteen days, individuals may resume in-person work or school provided no symptoms have emerged. 

If an individual does not get tested within the window indicted above, she/he is to self-monitor for ten days and may return to school or work after the full ten days, provided no symptoms emerge.

Persons who have been fully vaccinated and/or tested positive for COVID-19 in the past three months must still follow the above listed procedure but may resume in-person school or work immediately following confirmation of a negative result (test must be during the window of three to five days after return). Students who must quarantine upon return to in-person school or work time must notify the school. 

Parents and families, all sports spectators attending indoor and outdoor athletic activities are required to wear a face mask.  Utica Community Schools, and schools around the county and state, are requiring this.  Our families have done a great job with this during the fall and winter sports.  We are asking that you continue to mask up before exiting your vehicle and entering school property during the spring sports.  Help us help students and community stay safe. 

The Utica Community Schools Virtual Academy is now accepting applications for families seeking a virtual learning option featuring the district’s nationally recognized academic programs. “Our Virtual Academy offers the choice to combine the district’s educational excellence with a virtual environment,” Interim Superintendent Robert Monroe said. “We are proud to now offer the academy as part of the Utica Community Schools portfolio of options that meet our students’ unique needs and interests.” 

The virtual academy gives families virtual access to K-12 programs offered through the Utica Community Schools, including core elementary and specials and secondary elective and required courses. Students can participate in extra-curricular activities, including marching band and athletics, through their home schools.

Applications and more information (including an updated question and answer sheet) are available at: https://uticak12.org/UCS_Virtual_Academy. The application period ends May 2. 

Senior Parents:   
 
If your student has a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above, make sure they check their school email and respond.  If they have any questions, email Mrs. Lucas or Mr. Nassar. 

Reminder:  This year the Senior Parent Meeting will be fully virtual, and contain all of the information we have at this time.  Please check your email, or the Stevenson website, on Tuesday evening for the link to watch the presentation.   

The email will contain a PowerPoint Presentation, as well as a link to a Microsoft Form.   

Please note you will also have to fill out the Microsoft Form acknowledging that you AND your student have viewed, discussed, and understand the material presented.   

Included in that form is also an RSVP for the in-person graduation ceremony.  All parts of the form need to be filled out in order for seniors to participate in any end of the year activities, including the Senior Celebration and Graduation.      

In closing,  Macomb County High School Principals Association and the Macomb ISD have sponsored the Macomb County All-Academic Banquet for the past 34 years. Selection for this honor is based upon grade point average and SAT scores.  I would like to congratulate the following SHS students that were selected for the Macomb County All ~Academic Team: Elena Serra, Rohit Ray, Bronwyn Weiker, Emma Bowen, Rohan Desai, Lucy Potts, Hannah Baran, Rami Katto, Mirella Bou-Chaaya. 

 With Titan Pride,

Kenneth L. Cucchi III
Principal, Stevenson High School
