So... What confusing times we are living in. I just received this notice from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services regarding MDHHS Director Issues Epidemic Public Health Order Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Director Robert Gordon today issued an Emergency Order under MCL 333.2253 restricting gathering sizes, requiring face coverings in public spaces, and places limitations on bars and other venues. Under MCL 333.2253, if the MDHHS director determines that control of an epidemic is necessary to protect the public health, the director by emergency order may prohibit the gathering of people for any purpose and may establish procedures to be followed during the epidemic to insure continuation of essential public health services and enforcement of health laws. Today’s orders largely reinstate, under the department’s authority, three major aspects of prior emergency orders issued by Gov. Whitmer: "Requirements to wear masks at indoor and outdoor gatherings: The order requires individuals to wear masks when in gatherings, defined as any occurrence where persons from multiple households are present in a shared space in a group of two or more and requires businesses and government offices to enforce those requirements for gatherings on their premises. The order also requires the wearing of masks at schools for all grades, except for in Michigan Economic Recovery Council Region 6. Limitations on the size of gatherings: The order reinstates limitations on gathering sizes that mirror the requirements that Governor Whitmer had previously put in place. These include indoor gatherings of more than 10 and up to 500 people occurring at a non-residential venue are permitted within the following limits: In venues with fixed seating, limit attendance to 20% of normal capacity. However, gatherings up to 25% of normal capacity are permitted in Michigan Economic Recovery Council Region 6. In venues without fixed seating, limit attendance to 20 persons per 1,000 square feet in each occupied room. However, gatherings of up to 25 persons per 1,000 square feet are permitted in Michigan Economic Recovery Council Region 6. Non-residential outdoor gatherings of between 100 and 1,000 persons at venues with fixed seating are permitted at up to 30% of normal capacity and at 30 persons per 1,000 square feet at venues without fixed seating. Limitations on certain establishments: Although the order does not close bars, it requires them to close indoor common areas where people can congregate, dance, or otherwise mingle. Indoor gatherings are prohibited anywhere alcoholic beverages are sold except for table services where parties are separated from one another by at least six feet. In addition, athletes training or practicing for or competing in an organized sport must wear a facial covering, except when swimming, or consistently maintain six feet of social distance." The order is effective immediately and valid through October 30, 2020. So... Now What? Well, we will continue to get more information and clarifying guidance in the coming days/weeks. In the meantime, we will continue to follow our original Preparedness and Response Plan but now must reinstate the requirement that masks are also to be worn in schools for all of our K-12 students. As stated last week, our K-5 staff will be creative in finding safe ways to provide mask breaks throughout the school day. Hang in there Spartans!!

Dear MCC School Family, You may have heard that last Friday afternoon, the Michigan Supreme Court answered a question from a federal court that basically had the effect of finding the governor's executive orders after April 30, in regard to a declared state of emergency, unconstitutional (i.e., in violation of the Michigan constitution). This has created a lot of confusion for all and will require clarification from the courts, the legislature, the governor, and other state and local agencies, which have other, separate authorities to issue various orders. I will be learning much more about all of this over the next few days and sharing relevant summaries with you all. For now, please understand that we continue to function under our COVID Preparedness and Response Plan and our Extended Continuity of Learning Plan, the latter of which is the result of enacted law, passed by the legislature and signed by the governor. So what does all of this mean? The Mason County Central School District will stay the course with our plan that has been in place since the start of the school year. For our K-5 students, we will NOT require masks be worn in the classroom but rather encourage them. For our 6-12 students and staff, masks are still required as stated in our plan that was approved by the Mason County Central Board of Education and approved by the State back in August. Stay Healthy and Strong Spartans!

Good Afternoon, We have several important updates to share with you today. First you can expect to receive a letter at the beginning of next week with your child’s teacher assignment and grade level supply list. We will have a “ Spartan Connected Curbside Pickup” for parents to pick up everything they will need to get started this fall on Thursday September 3, from 8:00 to 3:00 at Upper Elementary. Spartan Connected families should expect to receive a phone call from their child’s teacher this week to gather some needed information. Back to School Night will be virtual this year and be posted on the MCC App and website on Monday August 31. Have a great day!
