Farrand Robocall Email March 14, 2021
Good Evening Farrand Families, Hello Farrand Foxes,
Again, this has been a productive week. Please remind students that CDC guidelines require that we schedule no more than 15 minutes in the cafeteria with masks off to eat lunch. Students are encouraged to use the 15 minutes to eat. If the lunch is completed in less than 15 minutes, students can put on their masks and enjoy conversation with a table partner. Some students have recess before lunch and some students have recess after lunch.
Our students are completing their NWEA reading and math tests. Shortly after the testing window closes on March 26, the District will make the reports available to families.
Teachers continue to complete report cards for the second trimester grades. Parent(s) and guardian(s) will have online access to report cards on March 24.
Students at Farrand are buzzing about ‘Camp Readalot’. We have a ‘Book Riddle’ contest every Friday. Classroom teachers choose two people in the class with correct answers to win a book. This week the correct raffle answers were the book characters Lilly and Greg.
Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour (Spring ahead)!
Now for District News!
While our students have done a good job wearing face coverings in school, we have noticed many students are wearing masks that do not properly fit their face. If the student’s nose is not fully covered, it is usually an indication that they have an improper fitting mask. This is especially the case with young elementary students. Please be sure to check the fit of your child’s face covering. Each school office carries multiple size masks (even kid size) if needed.
Plymouth-Canton Community Schools has an opt-out policy for students and families who wish to not have their images used in school and districtwide media, including the district website, district and school social media outlets, as well as external media outlets such as newspapers and online publications.
Please download and complete the form below if you wish to have your student(s) opt-out of the above uses. You can email the completed form to:

If your family is planning a spring break trip outside of the U.S. or U.S. Territories, please be aware that the Wayne County Health Department and Center for Disease Control require your child to be quarantined for seven days upon returning to the U.S. before he or she will be eligible to return to school. After the seven days, your child also must get a COVID PCR test and have a negative test result before returning to school. If you choose not to undergo the PCR swab, your child must complete a 10-day quarantine. As long as your student remains asymptomatic after 10 days, he or she may return to school/public spaces on day 11. Currently, the Wayne County Health Department has issued no such guidelines or recommendations for domestic travel. However, the P-CCS suggests if you do travel domestically this spring break that you self monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and strictly follow the daily health screenings before coming to school. For more specific details, please contact your school nurse.
During the weekend of March 26-28, Wayne RESA will be conducting building maintenance that will require it to take all of its information technology application services, such as MISTAR and SMART and district internet access, offline. This maintenance is necessary to ensure continued reliable power service to P-CCS buildings. From Friday afternoon, March 26 through Sunday afternoon, March 28, there will be no access to the services Wayne RESA hosts (MISTAR -- including Q, Parent Portal, Student Portal, SMART, etc.) and no internet service within the district.
