I thought this was a good resource to share with some of our families.
There’s a new program that will pay up to $500 in utility costs for Michigan’s essential workers. THAW, or The Heat and Warm Fund, will pay up to $500 in utility assistance for any household with an income up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. Following the Department of Homeland Security’s definition of an essential worker, if you’re a health care nurse, hospital cleaning and maintenance worker, grocery and foodservice clerk, or bus driver, you qualify.

Hello parents,

if your child still need materials (supplies, notebooks, chromebook etc.) please let me know. We will be at the building on Wednesday at 1:00. Send me a message today . This will be the last time.

Also , remind your child that they are responsible for all school materials (chromebooks, books, reading bags, and books ,etc) and we will be expecting them back when we are permitted to officially re-enter the building.

Thank you
