Dear Swan Valley families,
We are writing to update you on the recent change in regards to masks for elementary students. The Governor recently put forth an EO that states that beginning October 5th elementary students will have to wear masks in the classroom not just upon entry, dismissal, and in common areas. Therefore beginning October 5th our SV elementary students will be required to wear them within their classrooms as well. Students will not be required to wear them when we are outdoors for recess.
The link to the EO can be found here :

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As noted in the communication that came out from the District, for the first trimester, we are going to go remote on most Wednesdays. (October 7th and October 14th we will be in person.) The first trimester goes through November 20th.

We have developed a plan that will help those elementary families who CANNOT find other supervision for their children on that day. If you do not have another option, we will provide a supervised location for a limited number of elementary students on those days.

For families who choose to take advantage of this opportunity, school breakfast and lunch will be available. However, students can also bring their own cold lunches.

Childcare will be provided at either the High School or Middle School based on the number of participants for Shields and Havens students.

The supervision would take place during the hours of the student's regular school day.
Havens students will be supervised from 8:10-3:20. Shields students will be supervised from 8:15-3:30.

Any significant adjustments to bus pick up or drop-off times will be communicated to those participating.

It is important to note that once a bus selection has been made, it must remain the same for the trimester. These selections must be to bus stops that already exist. However, if a family wants to pick up a student who normally rides a bus, that needs only to be communicated before 3:00 to the school where the student is being supervised.

***Please NOTE: This privilege can be revoked if repeated behavioral issues occur.

***These Wednesday changes do not apply for October 7th or October 14th (remote days those weeks instead will be on October 8th and 15th and this same opportunity will be available). Students that are currently in person students will attend school face to face for those two Wednesdays.

We hope that this child care opportunity helps to alleviate some of the stress that may have been placed on families from the change in schedule for students. We appreciate your continued support as we try to best meet all of our students’ needs.

Once we have the survey data, additional information will be sent to the families opting for the school provided supervision.

This survey MUST be completed by 1:00 PM Friday, September 18.

Hello from Havens. It’s hard to believe August is right around the corner. To say this has been a crazy last few months would probably be an understatement. I want to remind everyone that next week the district will be posting the K-12 Swan Valley Return to Learn Plan. After that plan goes out you will have time to look it over and then feel free to reach out to your building administrators if you have specific questions. Additionally, there will be a survey sent for parents/guardians to select the Instruction options that your family chooses based on the School/District Plan.

We appreciate your support. A reminder that each building utilizes the website along with the SV app for communicating information. Each building also has an official school Facebook page. There has been a lot of unofficial discussion and communication that may have caused families confusion and I appreciate that some of you have reached out for clarification.

We are committed to providing our students and families the best education we can while also balancing all of the many requirements within the Michigan Department of Education Roadmap. Your support and understanding is a crucial part.

For your convenience, I have added the link to the app (for the Apple store, but it is available in the Google Store as well), link to the Swan Valley Schools Webpage and links for the Elementary Facebook sites.

We look forward to working with your students this coming year.
