Howe Montessori and Center Based Education

Notice of Pause

October 8, 2021

Greetings Howe School Community,

The staff and students at Howe School have worked hard to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for our students.  We appreciate the support of our families and staff to complete daily screenings and implement the district mitigation measures in our school environment. Over the course of the past week, we have seen multiple covid cases in our school community.  We have been working closely with the district nurses and the Wayne County Health Department to complete contact tracing and to receive guidance for maintaining the health of our school community. 

Out of an abundance of caution, and with support of the Wayne County Health Department we have decided to pause in-school instruction for the week of Monday, October 11-15 for the Howe Montessori, SXI and SCI Programs. We will provide asynchronous learning on Monday for students that will be posted through Schoology. Please look for communication from your teacher. Synchronous learning will take place on Tuesday- Friday. Chromebooks will be available for pickup on Monday from 10-12 for students who need one.

Thank you for your support as this will allow us to complete additional cleaning and help us return to healthy learning on Monday, October 18.
