Dear SC Community, As you may have seen, the Marquette County Health Department has reduced the number of days of quarantine back to 10 days. This morning we met with the LMAS Heath Department. LMAS is keeping the 14 day quarantine. As we fall under the jurisdiction of LMAS, students who have to quarantine at SC will continue to quarantine for 14 days. If you live in Marquette County and attend Superior Central, LMAS said you still have to follow the 14 day quarantine period. If you have further questions please feel free to contact me. Sincerely, Bill Valima
Dear Superior Central Community, As you may have heard, today Governor Whitmer recommended that all high schools in Michigan take a two-week pause of in person learning. She also asked the same for athletics. The superintendents of Marquette and Alger Counties along with the local health departments and medical directors met this afternoon and made the decision to continue in person learning as we have all year. For Superior Central, this decision is based on numbers. We currently have 3 active cases at Superior Central, less than 1% of our total population (student and staff). This week we tested 42 student athletes for COVID-19; all tests were negative. We have been fortunate at Superior Central all year with our COVID-19 numbers. I attribute this to our students and parents. Students have been great with mask wearing and hand washing/sanitizing. Parents have kept kids home when they are sick and have immediately contacted the school if a student tested positive. In every case we have had this year, the parent has called the school before the health department. This has enabled us to immediately contact trace and quarantine exposed students. I know we are all tired of this virus. I ask that we all continue to do our best to stay healthy. Wear a mask when you are in the building, wash your hands, stay home if you are sick. As always if you have any questions please contact me. Sincerely, Bill Valima Superintendent/K-12 Principal
