Dear Superior Central Parents and Guardians, As you have probably heard, the Governor’s Office, along with the COVID-19 Task Force on Education and the Return to School Advisory Committee, has released the MI Safe Schools: Michigan’s 2020-21 Return to School Roadmap. This Roadmap provides and strongly recommends safety protocols to keep school communities safe based on the status of the Coronavirus. The Roadmap also provides recommendations for mental and social-emotional health, instruction, and operations within each phase of the Michigan Safe Start Plan. Depending on the status of the MI Safe Schools, there are three scenarios for schools opening back up in the fall. 1. Phase 6 – Schools open for in-person instruction with minimal required safety protocols. 2. Phase 5 – Schools open for in-person instruction with moderate required safety protocols. 3. Phase 4 – Schools open for in-person instruction with stringent required safety protocols. 4. Phases 1-3 – Schools do not open for in-person instruction and instruction is provided remotely. So that we can make a return to school plan that is safe and appropriate for our district, the administration and the Superior Central School Board kindly ask that you complete our “Return to School – Parent Survey”. The survey will close at 11:59 on Sunday, July 26th. Thank you, Bill Valima https://forms.gle/SuSQoxfVphLqeN4g6
Hey SC Families! We realize that some of you were unable to return your school materials last week. Textbooks are expensive (ranging from $75 to over $100) and we'd really like to get them back. If you have some would you please return them to the school? We've put out our book return in front of the high school doors. Please drop your books in at any time. Chromebooks are also expensive. If you have not returned your chromebook please DO NOT drop it in the book return. Instead, email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a drop off. Thanks.
Reminder: When returning chromebooks and other supplies tonight, please do not leave your vehicle. This is a drive-thru event, please do not park. Thanks for your understanding as we try to make this a quick process for all families.
Reminder: TOMORROW, June 17th 6:00-8:00 pm Chromebook/textbook/library book RETURN. Locker/desk items, yearbooks, and Sayklly's egg pickup. 6th-12th grade - High School parking lot K-5th grade - Elementary parking lot
Yesterday the Governor signed EO 2020-48 suspending the monthly meeting requirement for local school boards until May 12, 2020. With that, we will be cancelling our board meeting scheduled for Monday, April 20th. Our next scheduled meeting is for Monday, May 18th. Stay Healthy!
UPDATE ON SAKYLLY'S EGGS! Sakylly's eggs were delivered to the school the day that the Governor issued the "Stay Safe, Stay Home" order. This meant that we did not have time to sort the eggs by teacher, or personalize them. Initially, I thought it would be best to wait out the "lockdown" and get eggs out when we went back to school. Now that Easter is a week away, there has been an increased demand for eggs. If you absolutely need your eggs, Superior Central orders will be available for pick up in the Elementary lot on Thursday, April 9th from noon until 1:00. Please stay in your car, your eggs will be brought to you. In order to fulfill your order, please email Bill Valima at email@example.com by 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, April 7th. For your order to be processed, you MUST INCLUDE the student/family your purchased your egg from. Please understand that eggs will not have personalized frosted names on them. Parents, if you are picking up your entire order, please let me know. If you can wait until the Governor's "Stay Safe, Stay Home" order is lifted, your eggs will still be available for you. If you would like a refund for your eggs please email me at the above email. Thanks for your patience. Bill Valima

If you need to contact the school please do so via email. Thanks for your patience and understanding during this confusing time. Bill Valima

I sure am tired of the constant carousel of basketball game rescheduling this winter. Due to a oversight on our part regarding MHSAA policy, we will be rescheduling both the girls' and boys' games tomorrow night (February 12th). The MHSAA says that only 3 basketball games can be played in a week. When rescheduling we added a boys' and girls' game tomorrow night. This gave both a 4th game this week. As a district we apologize for this. The boys will play at Stephenson on Saturday, February 23rd at 12:30. The girls will host Bark River at 6:00 on Wednesday, February 27th. I'm really hoping this will be an end to the rescheduling for the year. Again, I apologize for all of this confusion.
