Haigh Community,

As you know, students will begin to enter the school building for learning labs beginning today, Thursday, February 18. Learning labs will be scheduled by your child’s teacher. Please be sure to go through the checklist each time before your child enters the school building. Wayne County Covid-19 Screening tool for Families English. (Arabic) Parents must screen their children daily to ensure they are symptom-free following these guidelines. If a student comes to school and has either 1 symptom in box A or 2 symptoms in box B they will be sent home.

Masks, covering the mouth and nose, must be worn at all times. Students will not be allowed to congregate at any time and are expected to follow social distancing protocols. Wearing masks and proper social distancing is required for students to attend in person and to keep everyone healthy. 

Before coming to school: 

Please take the temperature of all children/family members in your household; if a child’s temperature is above 100 degrees your child will need to stay home.

 In addition, if your child is not feeling well or if they have any one of the following symptoms then they should stay home for the day: ( This will be very helpful for us to go from 2 days a week to 5 days a week in the future)

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

In the event that a student gets sick or starts exhibiting symptoms at school, they will be relocated to the designated quarantine room until their parent or guardian can retrieve them. They will be supervised by a staff member in the quarantine room. 

Parents: Please remind your child while at school to: 

  • Wear and keep his/her mask on while on school property 
  • Practice social distancing while on school property 
  • Avoid touching his/her face, especially her/his eyes.
  • Avoid touching other children  (No high fives, hugs)
  • Not to share school supplies or materials with others and vice versa
  • Not to share food or drinks with anyone/or take food or drinks from anyone
  • Bring their own water bottle (drinking fountains have been shut off for safety)

Coming back home from school: When your child comes home, make sure he/she cleans and disinfects his/her belongings and wash his/her hands for at least 20 seconds.

We know that this guidance puts added stress on families, and we are grateful for your cooperation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 313-827-6200. 

I am looking forward to seeing our students!

As always I appreciate your time and dedication,
