St. Louis Public Schools Continuity of Learning plan (Spring 2020)
September 28, 2020
You may have heard recent media reports about the state's plans to release weekly reports about the number of positive COVID-19 cases that involve school staff or students. I want to assure you of these four things:
- Due to HIPAA and FERPA laws, we cannot, and will not, disclose the identity of a staff member or student that has tested positive for COVID-19.
- Those who test positive for COVID-19 will not return to school until public health officials provide a letter to the school that states they are clear to return. This could be as soon as 10 days after the positive test results if symptoms are resolved.
- If we do have a staff or student test positive for COVID-19, we will work closely with public health officials. Mid-Michigan District Health Department will investigate and identify close contacts during the infectious period. Only those close contacts will be ordered to quarantine by Mid-Michigan District Health Department.
- We will alert parents and staff of the positive case as we become aware of it via email without disclosing the person's identity.
You will not need to wait for a weekly report from the state. We will be transparent and quick with our communication.
Thank you for continuing to carefully check your child for the following symptoms each morning before school: temperature of 100.4 degrees F or higher, sore throat, an uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing, the onset of a severe headache, diarrhea, vomiting, unusual belly pain, or new loss of taste or smell.
We must all partner together to keep our staff and students safe and healthy.

FFA State Degree Recipients
The State FFA Degree is the highest honor a State FFA Association can bestow upon its members. To qualify for this degree, members must have been enrolled in agricultural education for at least two years and complete 360 hours of school-based agricultural education. They must also have a productive Supervised Agricultural Experience, which is conducted outside of school where they have invested an additional 300 hours. Members must have also demonstrated their leadership abilities through a speech, demonstration of parliamentary procedure, and serve as a committee member or as a chapter officer. FFA Members who receive this award have completed a minimum of 25 service hours and have a satisfactory academic record verified by the school administration. The Michigan State FFA Degree is also counted by Michigan State University for six general education credits and can be applied to any degree track at MSU. This year’s recipients are Kassidy Acker, Corban Allen, Michael Hrabal, Taylor Marr, and Jaden Simmons.
St. Louis Students Assist in the Need for Blood DonationsAnatomy and Physiology students successfully hosted two blood drives this year through Michigan Blood and collected 180 pints of blood from staff, students and community members. The students worked hard to recruit donors, get food donations from local businesses and organized all aspects of the day. They did an amazing job!

Little Free Library
Take a Book ~ Share a Book
You may have noticed a new addition outside of Carrie Knause! We now have our own little free library! One of our 2nd graders in Mrs. Jenkin's class thought this would be a great addition to our school. Her and her classmates then pursued a grant through the Youth Advisory Council with the Gratiot Community Foundation to secure the funds for this project! Please feel free to grab a book when your child needs something to read or swap us books after your child has finished reading one of their books!
Digital All-State Athlete Display
Please check out our new interactive touch screen display just outside the gym for All-State athletes at SLHS! All you have to do is walk up and touch the display to interact with it. This is an ongoing project by some of our business students and we are working to get it updated and current. If you have additions to this site, please email Mr. Brian Anderson, Athletic Director. Also, for most of the athletes we had to scan in old yearbook photos so if you have an updated photo of yourself, please send it on as well. Check out the video in the recent Shark Scene article to see it in action. You can also view the site online.
Schools of Choice
Schools in Gratiot and Isabella counties participate in a cross-district Schools of Choice Program. Parents can consider a school that best fits their child's individual needs. Schools of Choice applications must be completed and submitted to the Gratiot-Isabella Region Education Service District. Check out the Schools of Choice brochure for more information.

Working together will bring support and pride to everyone. Working together will allow for us to always put kids first. We take pride in our programming, our staff, our students, and our community.
