P-CCS Students and Families:
As circumstances surrounding COVID-19 continue to quickly develop, Plymouth-Canton Community Schools is preparing for the possibility of a long-term school closure by developing ways to support learning from home and provide the training necessary for teaching staff to support that learning.
In order for our faculty to have adequate time to research and plan for what learning might look like for our students at home, all schools in P-CCS, including Early Childhood Programs, will be closed for students on Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17.
Friday, March 13, will be a regular day of school for all students and programs.
As of this writing, this is a planned closure, and we have every intention of reopening schools for learning on Wednesday, March 18. To be best prepared, we encourage students to take home their belongings at the end of the day on Friday, including any district-issued electronic devices.
Please know that, as always, parents are encouraged to make individual attendance decisions based on what you feel is most appropriate for your student and family, particularly in any situation in which you feel your child and/or a family member may be at risk. If your student is feeling ill, please keep your student home so they can focus on getting healthy again. No student will be penalized academically for excused absences during this period.
We will continue to make decisions regarding school and school-related activities based on the guidance of the Michigan Department of Education, Michigan Health and Human Services Department, Wayne County Health Department, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
This is new territory for us all, and we will continue to provide regular communication and updates with our community as more information is made available to us. We will continue to take direction from our State agencies and work alongside our students and families to navigate this health concern together.
We are dedicated to making sure that our learning environments remain a safe and healthy place for all students and staff. Thank you for your continued support of P-CCS!
Yours in learning,
Monica L. Merritt Superintendent of Schools
LEARN. PREPARE. THRIVE.
