7th-12th Distance Learning Until Thanksgiving Break

Calumet High School, grades 7th through 12th, will begin distance learning starting Thursday, November 12th until Friday, November 20th. 

We have Thanksgiving Holiday Break from Monday, November 23rd to Friday, November 27th. 

During those 7 days of distance learning, students will be responsible for the work that is assigned by instructors.

We have a number of staff and students affected by quarantines related to COVID-19. This is the best way our teachers can deliver instruction and keep our students and staff safe and healthy.

  • 9:00-10:00 AM - 1st Hour
  • 10:00-11:00 AM - 3rd Hour

Dear Calumet school family:

As you know, our 7-12th site has experienced numerous positive COVID-19 cases. As a precaution, students and staff members in a good number of our  classrooms have been asked to quarantine. Several other students are currently awaiting test results.  After discussing the situation with local health officials, we have made the difficult decision to transition our 7th-12th  students to distance learning until November 30th in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus. This move will be effective Thursday November 12th, and school is expected to resume on campus November 30th.

**All other schools will continue to attend class on campus at this time.**

About Distance Learning Our team worked very hard this summer to prepare for this school year, including the possibility that distance learning would be temporarily necessary. Teachers will use Google Classroom to communicate instruction with their students at home.  Make sure students are logging into their email every day to see what assignments have been uploaded.  Students will be responsible for the work that is assigned.  If you do not have access to technology or the internet, please contact the HS school at 893-2494. Finally, we know some students may have textbooks or personal belongings at school they need over the next two weeks. To retrieve these items, please contact HS office at 893-2494. If you have any questions, please call Maggie at 893-2494.

About COVID-19 As more COVID-19 cases are being confirmed across the state, including in our community, please remain vigilant. Monitor yourself and your family for symptoms, which include fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you or any member of your family exhibit these symptoms, please contact your medical provider for advice immediately. Symptoms usually appear 2-14 days after exposure. 

There is nothing more important to our district than the safety and health of our students, our staff and their families. We understand this sudden transition will be inconvenient and your child will miss being in school; however, we greatly appreciate your families’ flexibility, patience and support. We are optimistic that following mitigation protocols recommended by health officials will help increase the probability that students can have a safe and productive school year.

It is an honor and a privilege to serve the students of Calumet Public Schools.

Sincerely,
Brandon Voss
Superintendent
