Message from Superintendent Saunders

October 2, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Today at 3:00 p.m. the Upper Peninsula, region 8, was moved back to phase 4 of the MI Safe Start Plan. Our school buildings are starting to receive calls of what impact this may have on students in the Marquette Area Public Schools? In short, our plans for face to face instruction were designed around the phase 4 guidelines. Almost point by point, we are already covering the state’s recommendations for this phase.  Face to face instruction will continue pending review by the MAPS Board of Education at its October 19th meeting. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to remind families that as a district we must remain vigilant in our approach to maintaining a safe and healthy environment. Students and staff will continue to wear masks at all times in classrooms and common areas. Only if outside and during lunch, and with six feet or more of social distance, are masks allowed to be removed for breaks. We will also keep to a strict schedule of cleaning and disinfecting; providing time in the school day for hand wash and hygiene; and cleaning desk tops, handrails, door knobs and other commonly touched surfaces on a regular schedule. 

If everyone continues to do their part, it is our hope that our schools will not become a source of transmission for this virus and that face to face education will remain a viable option for those families who’ve selected it.

Please stay safe and stay healthy.

William B. Saunders
