From The Principal

 Dear Titan Families,

We are excited to begin welcoming back our students for in-person instruction. 
Below are some key points to help with our transition back to SHS. Please note our doors will open every morning at 7:00 a.m. Our building will close at 2:30, unless there’s an extra - curricular activity. It’s also important to note, if your child forgets their laptop at home, they will be asked to call a parent immediately, otherwise, they will use paper and pencil for that class. On a good note, the USDA extended free meals for ALL students until June 30. This means all students are entitled to free breakfast and lunch every day regardless of their free/reduced designation! This only includes 1 complete meal, a la carte items like bottled water and cookies are not included with a free meal. 

UCS will still have meal distribution sites available for remote learning as well as the virtual academy. 

Tentative  Winter Break Schedule:

January 20th Stevenson, Eisenhower & Ford from 4-6 p.m.

January 27th , February 3rd  & February 10th : Malow, Davis, Eppler & Jeannette from 11-1 p.m. 
Eisenhower, Stevenson & Ford from 4-6 p.m.

Health and Safety – There are two main goals related to health and safety that the schedule supports:
o Our commitment to returning smaller groups of students in a deliberate process to ensure we can maintain proper distancing
o The need to reduce the amount of interactions between students to mitigate any  possible spread of COVID-19
Masks- Must be worn at all times except during lunch when students are eating.  
Self-Screening – Your partnership is critical to our school’s ability to continue moving forward as a safe manner. Prior to school each day, we ask you to make sure your student has completed a self-screening process. The process (located as appendix C in the Essential Parent Handbook at this link  ) is a series of questions you should review every morning related to the health and wellness of your student. 
Cohort Groups – Students will be divided according to alphabet into two groups called Cohorts. One cohort will attend in-person instruction while the other cohort group works remotely. By separating students in cohort groups, we are able to manage the interactions between students. The cohorts will be divided by the follow alphabet, according to the last name: A-K is cohort 1 and L-Z is cohort 2.
Busing – Students who are eligible for transportation will receive those services. 
Lunch Hours – Lunch time needs to be managed carefully as it is the one time each day where masks can be removed while our students eat. It is therefore extremely important that we are able to distance our students for their protection and our staff. 
We will have five lunch periods, running in half-hour increments from 9:47 a.m. through 12:17 p.m.  If you have special dietary concerns that need to be addressed, please be sure to call our office. 
Student Support Time – Built into the schedule is a student support time. This is time for our students to reach out to their counselor, teacher or administrator to ask questions or get further support. They will stay in their 1st  -  4th hour unless given a pass to specific location.
Lockers-  Student WILL NOT have access to their school lockers.  
Laptops-  Laptops should be brought to school each and every day. Along with, the charging cord/device and headphones. As mentioned earlier: if your child forgets their laptop at home, they will be asked to call a parent immediately, otherwise, they will use paper and pencil for that class. 

We ask that all parents and staff resume notifying our schools of any positive cases of COVID-19 or household quarantines that are impacting families.  It is important for us to know of any new cases as of January 19th and moving forward.  As we return to school Tuesday we will begin documenting cases again through the COVID-19 dashboard on the UCS webpage. 

Seniors and Juniors who want to apply for a parking permit should go to the Stevenson home page and under Parent Quick Links click on: SHS Semester 1 Student Parking Permit Application. Parents will need to access the application on their student’s computer. Students who have already completed the application process do not need to reapply at this time. Sophomores are not permitted to drive to school. We will continue to use the Semester 1 application as we monitor the parking permit requests. Students are not being charged for parking permits and will not receive a hanging permit. If any changes are required, students and parents will be notified.

The Sterling Heights Historical Commission is organizing an outreach project intending to gather and preserve the expressed effects of COVID-19 on our children through the mediums of art and words. Children, age 18 and under, are invited to submit a drawing or essay that expresses their emotions, impressions, moods, perspectives, and personal encounters caused by the Coronavirus. Submissions will be permanently archived and preserved in the Sterling Heights historical collection. Each entrant will receive a commemorative certificate recognizing participation.  Entries will be placed on exhibit at the Sterling Heights Community Center at a future date when public gatherings are approved safe. History examines the past, but it also happens every day.  During extraordinary times, it’s necessary to pause and mark the present for posterity.  In these overwhelming days of Coronavirus, we must record and preserve the first-hand experiences of today. Please feel free to include the attached flyer located under Parent Quick Links which provides additional details and instructions to participants.  
In closing, if we truly believe that in person learning is what is best for our students then I urge all of us to remain diligent in following all of the public health safety protocols.  Wearing a mask, social distancing, hand washing and limiting close contact with others outside your household will support our sustainability of in person learning beginning Tuesday, January 19th and Thursday, January 21st..  Here’s to our renewed hope for a great 2021…. TOGETHER!
