School Update - Updated 7/29/2020

7/29/2020
Message from Mr. Krimmel -
Thanks to all the families and staff members that have participated in the surveys that were emailed to you over the last few weeks. The information we gather from these surveys is very valuable in shaping the plan for the safe return to school in the fall. It is apparent from our results we receive that the comfort level of our families and staff members varies greatly. We also know how important school is to our students and their future. I understand everyone is anxious to know exactly what is going to happen in the fall for your Airport Jet. Hang in there, we are working hard to develop a final plan that allows families a choice for their student(s) and takes into account the safest measures we can possibly put in place. Our region is currently in phase 4 which allows face to face instruction and remote learning. Airport families will have options in the upcoming weeks that include these learning formats. Schools must have a plan approved by the board of education by August 15th. Parents will continue to receive information over the next couple of weeks about the specific learning options for your student.
We appreciate your patience and your understanding as we work hard to prepare a return to learning plan that is best for your student and as safe as possible for everyone! Continue to check your email and this Facebook page for additional communication. Go Jets!

Message from Mr. Krimmel - Today Governor Whitmer released the roadmap for Michigan public schools to follow for the safe return to school in the fall.  Over the next few weeks Airport administration will work diligently to develop a number of plans that follow the mandated guidelines that coincide where we are as a state and local community dealing with this pandemic.  As we progress through the next few weeks we will be seeking input from families, students, and staff that will assist us in developing these plans.  Rest assured we will develop plans that keep students and staff safe and allow us to recognize the ultimate value of face-to-face teaching and learning.
I hope you and your family have a relaxing Fourth of July holiday and enjoy the heart of the summer months.  You will receive more information as we progress through the next few weeks.  Please continue to recognize social distancing, washing your hands, and wearing masks where appropriate.  Go Jets!
 
John Krimmel, Superintendent

Recently Monroe News, and Airport graduate, Caitlyn Taylor, did a story on Airport 2020 valedictorian, Amelia Corne and the Corne family. That story was picked up by CNN and they produced this wonderful article. You gotta love when stories of our great Airport Jets get picked up nationally.

Airport Community Schools Continuity of Learning Plan can by found by clicking on this link:  View Continuity of Learning Plan here
 
4/13/2020
Dear Parent(s),
I hope this email finds you and your families doing well and handling the quarantine.  These are unique times and I hope you all remain safe and secure during this lockdown period.
As a result of closing school for the remainder of the school year, the State of Michigan has required all public schools to develop a Continuity of Learning (COL) plan for the remainder of the school year.  Airport's COL plan has been developed, approved by the Monroe County Intermediate School District (MCISD), and submitted to the state.  This COL plan is available on our school website at www.airportschools.com .
 
The Airport COL plan was developed based on recommendations from the Michigan Department of Education, many professional associations, and input from many teachers.  We have been working hard to guidelines to carry out the COL plan for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  This plan is different from the optional educational enrichment opportunities that were taking place before our spring break.  Students should now be working to learn new material and achieve credit for the classes/grade level they are currently enrolled in.  Principals and teachers will be sharing specific procedures, assignments, and feedback to support students.  Principals and all administrators are prepared to support students and families in every way we can.  Below are some key points of the expectations moving forward for the students in all grades at Airport Schools.
  • Access to Buildings - No students should try to enter any of the school buildings.  Teachers are allowed to access the building only in coordination with the building principal.  Building principals should be contacted if there are personal materials that a student absolutely needs.  Access to buildings may be opened up only if the state restrictions are relaxed or lifted.
  • Grades - All students will be graded on a Pass/Fail (Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory) scale.  No letter grades will be assigned for final grades for classes or subjects.  No grades from the second semester of this school year will be factored into a student's overall grade point average.
  • EFFORT - EFFORT IS EVERYTHING!  If students want to achieve a Satisfactory grade, they have to be engaged with the teaching and assignments and complete work.  If a student does not put forth any effort, they may receive an Unsatisfactory and not receive credit.  The expectation is that every student has access to the work and will be in contact with the teacher the expected times.
  • Access to Learning-Teachers and building principals need to be notified if a family does not have access to assignments or contact from teachers.  We have the support in place to help with the internet, we have the ability to deliver paper/pencil materials, and school supplies if needed.  Access cannot be a reason a child does not receive or turn in work.  We have to and want to know how to help.
  • Daily Expectations - As you will see when you get the expectations from building principals and teachers, the time expectations when learning remotely are not the same as when a child is in school. The actual number of minutes that lessons occupy is smaller.  Students need to be engaged every day and work every day.  Teachers will be available for lessons and support every day.
  • Special Education - We have been and will continue to be communicating with our special education staff members and the Monroe County ISD regarding special education requirements, accomodations, and IEPs.  Special education students will continue to get support and we do have the ability to continue the IEP timelines as we move through the remainder of the school year.  Students that have additional adult support (Indepence Facilitators) can expect to have that same support over the internet or phone to help with assignments.
  • Social/Emotional Support - We understand these are tough times for a lot of us.  In addition, we are also here to support students that are struggling with the mental part of this quarantine.  We have staff members and resources available to help kids get through this tough time.  Please make sure your child's teacher is aware of a student that needs some extra support.
Our teachers and many of our students have already been doing some great things.  I am confident we will all make the best of this tough situation and make strides during the rest of this school year.  Please support and encourage your child to be engaged in his/her learning every day and remember, EFFORT is everything!  Please look forward to communication from principals and teachers as we move forward with learning.  Be safe and Go Jets!

Food Update! It was a great week of food delivery. Families received food for the weekend today because of Good Friday and the Easter weekend. A big THANK YOU goes out to Chris at Great Lakes Aggregate for donating the Easter Egg surprise in every meal today! Airport Schools, with the hard working food service, bus drivers, and administrative staff, has served over 52,000 meals since the emergency school closure occurred. What a wonderful display of teamwork and support for our Airport community! Go Jets! See you Monday!

Dear Parent(s),

First, I continue to hope and pray all of you and your families are doing well, staying healthy, and practicing good distancing measures. By all accounts, the next couple weeks are going to be crucial in keeping the spread of this virus to a minimum. I wish you all the best in doing all you can to limit your contact, but still stay as active as possible both physically and mentally.
I am sure all of you are aware of the Governor's Executive Order to close schools for the remainder of the year. We have anticipated this move for about 10 days now and the Monroe County Superintendents and Airport administration have been meeting daily on developing a plan for Airport Students that fulfills the requirements set forth by the Executive Order and Michigan Department of Education. Here is what will take place now. I try to communicate using short, meaningful, and organized information.

Learning Plan
Airport will use the template that was just issued today by the Michigan Department of Education to put a plan in place for learning for the remainder of this school year.
We will submit that plan to the Monroe County ISD for their approval. They will then submit it to the State of Michigan.
Upon approval (which I anticipate being short order) we will begin moving forward in a similar fashion to what is already happening with our principals, teachers, and students.
We hope to be ready to move forward on Monday, April 13th. That is not set in stone yet, but please plan on that being our start date.
The major difference is that students need to know they must participate and give every effort to participate and complete daily/weekly learning. EFFORT, EFFORT, EFFORT!
Airport teachers and Airport principals must be made aware through any avenue possible the students that are having trouble accessing content/contact with their teachers. We will be using the internet, phone calls, paper packets, and any other mode of communication that ensures ALL of our students have access to the learning materials.
We are working very closely with the Monroe County ISD and teachers to make sure we accommodate students with IEPs and 504 plans to the very best of our ability. We understand some cases may require some compensatory education when necessary.
All students will be graded on a Satisfactory(S) and Unsatisfactory(U) basis for the rest of the year. Students need to participate and complete their learning opportunities to achieve the Satisfactory for their classes/grade level work. We will all be working to make sure learning takes place but effort needs to be at the forefront of every students' focus for the rest of the year. We want everyone working and trying their very best! Grade point averages for secondary students will not be factored into their overall average for the third or fourth marking periods. Senior grade point averages were finalized at the end of the first semester.
Additional specific information regarding learning expectations and access will be sent to all students through teachers and building principals.
Next week is "Spring Break" which certainly looks different this year. There is no expectation for additional enrichment opportunities to be sent from teachers or students to participate in. If teachers continue to make contact with kids that is certainly appreciated. Everyone at Airport wants to stay in touch with kids to make sure they are doing well.

Plan for Big Activities
Graduation - As sure as I am sitting here, there will be a graduation ceremony for our 220 seniors, the Class of 2020! I don't know when, where, or what it will look like but it will happen. The biggest factor right now are the restrictions we are under regarding gathering. We have no idea when we will be able to gather in big groups. I would guess that it will not be in June. If it has to happen in July, August, September, I don't care, we will have a graduation ceremony. At the end of the school year we can mail diplomas to the seniors that have fulfilled all graduation requirements. State Representative Matt Koleszar was scheduled to be our commencement speaker and he has committed to fulfill that duty no matter when the ceremony takes place. Graduation announcements will be shipped by Jostens directly to your house. We will contact families when caps and gowns arrive. We will figure out how to get these to you.
Prom - Mr. Lukosavich, Mr. Furtney and I have discussed prom and we want to have some sort of social gathering for our junior and senior class. Again, I do not know when, where, or what it will look like but trust we want to make it happen.
8th and 4th Grade Transition Activities - The transition activities that happen in the spring for students moving into new buildings is very important. Elementary principals and I are working together to figure these out too. We will do our best to plan times when students and parents can get into their new buildings and see presentations that will assist them in the transition to their new buildings in the fall of 2020.
Athletics - The MHSAA came out today and cancelled the end of the winter season and the spring season. This is another item that deeply saddens me. I don't have any words that will make our winter and spring athletes feel any better about the loss of participating in an activity they love. Seniors, I don't know what to say but thank you for all of your hard work, determination, and great representation of Airport Schools.
Other Activities - I will echo what I said above. Senior band, robotics, club teams, and any activity that you were looking forward to, I just don't have words to express my sorrow for not being able to make these happen.

Food Delivery
Food deliveries will resume on Monday, April 6th. We are providing food over Spring Break, EXCEPT FOR GOOD FRIDAY! Next week we will deliver food on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we will deliver enough food for the weekend. No delivery on Good Friday. I know we had a temporary stop in deliveries this week. The safety of our students and all our staff members preparing the food is our top priority. Hopefully we will not have any more interruptions to service. The same bus routes and drop-off times are in effect.

In closing, next week is spring break. No additional enrichment activities but continue to take care of yourself and your families. I will continue to communicate to you via the school email system and social media. Please trust in the wonderful employees that we have working for your children at Airport Community Schools. I believe we have proven to our community that we will do whatever it takes to provide the best for your children and although this is a very tough situation, with your help and the effort of your children, together we will get it done. Go Jets!

Dear Airport Parents and Community,
During this time of uncertainty, we hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy. To respond effectively to the urgent and steep demands created by this emergency, Governor Whitmer has issued an Executive Order to expand child care access for all members of the essential workforce. To help and provide support during this time, Airport Community School’s Jet Care Child Care program will be extending their care to all of our essential workforce families.
Jet Care has been continuously working to provide the best and safest care options for their currently enrolled students and will continue to do so for yours. Jet Care’s hours of operation will be Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M - 6:00 P.M. Jet Care will also be providing 2 free meals daily to each child attending. If your child's daily attendance exceeds 5 hours, they will be offering 25% off of your total bill.
If you are interested in Jet Care and have any additional questions, please contact Karalee DeLormier at kdelormier@airportschools.com or 734.735.7301.
Thank you, and stay healthy!

Due to unforeseen circumstances we chose to stop food delivery without notice for the remainder of the week. I apologize for the inconvenience and the inability to provide notice. The safety of our workers and our food delivery system to the students is a top priority. Our plan is to resume our regularly scheduled lunch delivery on Monday, April 6th. Thank you for your understanding.
We are also anticipating a major announcement from the Governor tomorrow, Thursday, April 2nd regarding Michigan schools. Please check your email in the upcoming days for updated information regarding Airport's plan for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
I wish continued health and safety for all our Airport students, staff, community, and family members. Please remain diligent in exercising appropriate measures to combat the spread of the COVID19 virus. Social distancing, washing your hands often, staying at home, and continual cleaning are a must in working together to limit the spread. Stay safe and Go Jets!
 
3/31/2020
Bridge Magazine released this article late this afternoon.
Although we anticipate an announcement from the Governor this week, no official decision has been made yet. I have noticed a lot of posting and sharing of this article on social media already this evening and want to make sure everyone understands an official statement has not been made. As soon as we get an official decision, we will communicate to all parents, students, and the community. Rest assured, Airport Community Schools is working hard on developing a plan for the remainder of the school year based on the official plan that is shared by the Governor and the Michigan Department of Education.
I hope all of you are doing well, staying healthy, and working on the enrichment activities our teaching staff is providing. Go Jets! JK

UPDATES! It has been a couple days so here are some updates. FOOD UPDATE! The Airport food service, bus drivers, and administrators prepared and delivered 15,000 meals this week. Yep, 15,000. Our numbers continue to grow and we are now seeing some more adults come to the stops with their kids and I know that is because more of our community members are getting laid off. I cannot explain to you how hard our Chartwells employees are working to provide this service. If you know one, or see one, please send them a message of "thanks", they are all angels. Our custodial group disinfected the cafeteria again and I found some masks for the workers. They are recognizing distance during work and our kids at the stops have keeping a safe distance between each other. We are doing our best to keep everyone safe.
We delivered a pick up bed full of rubber gloves, safety glasses, and a few thermometers from our shop areas and science department to Promedica Hospital today to help with much needed supplies. All hands on deck for the safety of everyone on the front line.
Students need to continue to do the enrichment activities that the teachers are sending home. It is good for the brain, the spirit, and mental health too. Stay as active as possible and use social media in a positive way to stay connected to teachers and friends.
There may be some people that have a concern with us using our school supplies for the hospital or upset with us still delivering meals. These are difficult times and we have employees that are committed to providing for our students and community members. Together we will get through this and we will continue to do everything in our power to support everyone in this fight. GO JETS!

Food Update! Governor Whitmer has issued an Executive Order to Stay Home, Stay Safe. Our food deliveries will continue on the same schedule. She has declared this as an essential service. She urges us to continue, and we will. See you all tomorrow. If the weather is questionable we still need you out there utilizing social distancing between everyone. Our food service, bus drivers, and administration will continue to serve our students. Take care of yourself and GO JETS!

Whitmer Administration: School Food Service Considered Critical Infrastructure, Should Continue

LANSING -- Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's office issued the following statement today from Press Secretary Tiffany Brown on the governor's "Stay Home, Stay Safe" executive order:
"Gov. Whitmer is committed to ensuring that Michigan students have access to the food they need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the governor's executive order, K-12 school food services are considered critical infrastructure and should continue. The governor deeply appreciates the vital work that our frontline school employees are doing every day to ensure that our kids have the food they need while the order is in effect."

 
3/22/2020
Food Update! Deliveries will be coming the same time and same places. Parents, please speak to your children about social distancing at the larger stops. We want to take all precautions to keep this service going! Thanks in advance and we will see everyone tomorrow! Go Jets!

Dear Airport Parent(s),
First of all, I hope you are doing well.  Please continue to take care of yourselves and your families.  These are unprecedented times and it is certainly difficult for all of us.  I want you to know Airport Schools is still here ready to assist in any way possible.
 
Things are changing at such a rapid rate it is difficult to keep up and maintain consistent answers to the many questions that I have and I know you have.  Although this update to you will not clarify many of your questions and concerns, I will continue to update you when I get definite guidance from the Governor's Office, the Michigan Department of Education, or decisions that are left up to our local school district.
 
Educational Enrichment Opportunities
Our dedicated teachers have voluntarily offered to provide enrichment opportunities to the students that they would normally see everyday.  There are many options for access to these opportunities.  Our students in grades 5-12 have Chromebooks for internet communication. If a family does not have internet access please let us know and we will continue to look for options to help get those families internet access.  Your teachers/principals will be working to provide alternate means of access to these enrichment opportunities.  Phone conversations, paper/pencil, books, are some of the examples of alternate ways we can get enrichment opportunities to your students.  Students in grades K-4 are also receiving enrichment opportunities.  Some teachers have been supplying internet opportunities as well as paper/pencil packets.  Your teacher and building principal will work with you to make sure your children have access to these opportunities and will be creating a process for exchange of these materials.  If you have a specific question please contact your building principal.
The work that students are participating is not for grades or credits.  I know that is a question that has come up.  We have received direction from the MDE that prohibits that from occurring.  Local school districts do not have all processes in place to insure that all students would have the necessary supports that are legally required to have those in place.
 
Food
Most of you know Airport staff members along with Chartwells Food Service workers are doing a phenomenal job providing food around the district for our kids.  Our district will continue to work to provide this food for as long as possible.  If you have children at home under the age of 18 and are not receiving food, please contact us at foodsignup@airportschools.com and give us your name, address, and number of kids.
 
Questions That I Don't Know the Answers - I am sorry!
Are we going to ever come back to school?  That answer is in the hands of the Governor at this time.  As soon as I know, you will know.
What happens to our senior class and graduation?  I do not know that answer either, but know it is at the top of my list of finding out.
What happens with high school credits each student was going to earn?  I don't know but we will find a fair and equitable solution for all students.
My heart goes out to all our kids that miss school, miss their friends, miss their teachers, and are missing all the fun things that go on during the springtime.  I have spent as much time as all of you have thinking about graduation, prom, robotics competition, Blue/Gold Banquet, Volunteer Banquet, baseball, softball, track, band competitions, Daddy/Daughter Dance, and the list goes on an on.  I just don't have the answers and I am sorry for that.  I can tell you one thing though.  Airport Schools will do everything in our power to honor our seniors and celebrate all of our students for their hard work during this school year.  That is all I can promise.
 
Again, take care of yourselves and understand that the employees at Airport Schools are working hard to make this very difficult situation as positive as we can and will be ready to tackle all the adjustments to what the future may hold for each and every student.

Food Update! We made it to Friday with a BANG! With enough food being delivered for the weekend, we delivered, get ready for it, 8,544 meals today total. Unbelievable work done by our food service staff, bus drivers, and principals. We know our families appreciate the support. I want to share that we are keeping our HS cafeteria disinfected during food preparation, we are working our hardest on social distancing, and making sure our meals are nutritious and safe. Have a restful weekend and be safe! Go Jets! Sharing some pictures from today which include Mrs. Mensing's "thank you cups" and Mr. Duffy doing some push-ups to stay active with a high school student! The rest are the thankful faces of kids that really do miss school! Go Jets again, Have a great weekend.

Food Update! I know some of you may be tired of seeing these posts, but I am not tired of posting them. The love and cheer that is being felt during our deliveries has to be shared. Plus, we keep getting additions every day and this is how we make sure we get every single kid signed up that we can.

We delivered about 2,400 meals today, which means almost 10,000 tomorrow. Sign up by emailing foodsignup@airportschools.com with name, address, and number of kids and we will be there. Got some great pictures from today's deliveries. Yesterday we got some thank you cards, today we got 4 dozen, farm fresh eggs and a group with the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets! cheer. Thanks and Go Jets!

Food Update! Ready for Thursday. We served over 1,100 kids today which includes breakfast and lunch, so really it is over 2,200 meals. Overwhelming JET PRIDE! We are taking precautions to make sure the handling of the food is safe and workers are mindful of space. Today's deliveries included some lovely "thank you" cards from some of the kids. They made the workers' day! The food service workers, bus drivers, and principals are working hard. We are addressing every email request at foodsignup@airportschools.com include name, address, and number of kids. We are finalizing enrichment activity plans with teachers and will communicate with all parents soon. Same delivery times and plans tomorrow. Keep in mind, on Friday's deliveries we will be include enough for the weekend. Go Jets!
 
3/17/2020
Day 2 Food Delivery - The response was tremendous last night. If you emailed at foodsignup@airportschools.com we have you on the list. We are building another route to accommodate. We are also sending out the red maintenance trucks with the Airport Schools logo on the side for some additions. Please be patient, even if it is after 11:00, we will get food to the people that contacted us. Remember, if you email foodsignup@airportschools.com PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR NAME, ADDRESS, NUMBER OF KIDS, that is helpful. Also, buses will be going around their route a couple times, if you see any bus, flag it down and we will stop with food. It is helpful for the school to give out food, EVERYONE under 18 is eligible and encouraged to take food. Go Jets and get out of bed, buses are on their way!
 
3/16/2020

FOOD UPDATE!  First day in the books, and listen, we knew there would be some bumps, but everyone did a great job. Lots of kids got breakfast and lunch. I am posting the UPDATED bus routes because we are going out a little later tomorrow to hopefully get a few people out of bed! C'MON GET UP AND GET YOUR FOOD! Here are a few things to remember and things we learned the first day and adjusted.
1. We are starting a little later (see new times on routes) in hopes we see more people.
2. Remember you can email at foodsignup@airportschools.com Everyone that sent an email was accounted for today.
3. Please, please do not hesitate to get food. The State of Michigan has allowed us to set this up like summer food giveaway. It is beneficial for our school to give kids food. We have plenty of food, please, don't be shy. All kids 18 and under can get food. Don't feel like you are keeping someone else from eating, we have enough for everyone.
4. An adult or sibling can pick up food for any children, no questions asked.
5. All buses go around their route multiple times. So if you miss us the first time we make the stops, we will be back around. But get out there please.
6. It is literally like the "ice cream man approach". Flag us down, stick your arm out the front door, get our attention and we will get you food. Come and get it!
7. Our food orders are now containing more "mobile" food so be patient as we use the fresh supplies we have on hand.
8. We are taking all necessary precautions with our handling of the food. Buses are cleaned daily and all milk and juice are kept cold.

Update on Food Delivery!  We have some additional information from the questions we received.
1. Every child under 18 that wants food from the bus will get food, no questions asked. Nobody has to sign up.
2. It is impossible for delivery to every door. We developed these special routes to cover our district. Students/adults may have to walk a little bit to the bus, but get there and you will get food. If you see an Airport bus stopped between 8:00 and 11:00 AM, come get some food.
3. If an adult says they have three kids at the house, they will get three meals. I am confident nobody in our community will take advantage of this.
4. If you don't think you can get to one of the stops on the nearest route, send your address to the email we set up foodsignup@airportschools.com and we'll get food to your student(s).
5. We are only running one route where each child will receive a breakfast meal and a lunch meal. They need to save the lunch and make sure the milk gets into the refrigerator!
6. Thank you to Chartwells, First Student, Airport administration and our dedicated food service, bus drivers, and custodial/maintenance workers for their work on this big project.
Stay tuned to this site for updates and get ready for Monday morning. Food and instruction is coming your way!
Go Jets! John Krimmel, Supt.

Airport Jets, I will continue to communicate through this FB page and my Twitter account. I will provide updates as often as necessary. This is what we are working on right now.
*We are developing a plan to provide learning and food throughout this extended closure. More details coming.
*Internet access is helpful, but we understand limitations. *Please see the generous move by Comcast below. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE INTERNET, APPLY FOR THIS PLEASE!
*We are checking into if we are allowed to keep JET CARE (our daycare service) open during this mandated closure. More to follow.
*You will not have random access to the school buildings during this closure.
*I will not be able to answer every question you post on this website, be confident we are probably working on it.
These are uncharted waters for all of us. I appreciate your support and patience. Understand we are all working hard for you and your students. We all need to pull together and get through this, and we will! Be safe and Go Jets!
John Krimmel, Supt.

SPRING BREAK! At this time Airport Schools is planning to keep our regularly scheduled Spring Break (April 4th-April 12th). The only way we will change this is from an Executive Order from the Governor. I feel safe saying, all Monroe County Schools will be keeping this same Spring Break.

Airport Students and Families, I am very happy we had school today. Thank you all for showing up and taking care of business. The kids response was great! It also allowed us to finalize some plans. Parents, we now need you! Airport Schools will be providing food (2 meals, breakfast and lunch) FREE to ALL students that want it. Our delivery plan will be posted in a short period of time.
We are also fine-tuning our DELIVERY OF INSTRUCTION PLAN! Our teachers and administrators have worked their tails off to make sure that teaching and learning will be happening EVERY DAY that we are closed. This is where we need you parents. I will be posting the plan, directions, and support and your building principals and teachers will be contacting you with the details on Monday, by the end of the day. Parents, please make sure your children understand they are expected to use the instruction we will be providing them and they are required to work as hard as they can each day to learn. Our staff believe they can effectively do this and we believe in your children. Much of our instruction will be done using technology, but especially for our younger students, alternatives will be provided. Access to internet is helpful for all of you, but we will compensate and help with the people that do not. The Airport staff is unified in believing our teachers can teach and our kids can learn during these unforeseen circumstances. Let's get it done. Stay tuned to this official Facebook page for updates at least everyday.
Go Jets! John Krimmel, Supt.

Dear Airport Students, Staff, and Community, We have received an Executive Order from Governor Whitmer to close school beginning on Monday, March 16th through April 4th. The order starts Monday, March 16th. Airport Schools will be open tomorrow, Friday, March 13th. Here is what will happen tomorrow.
*Normal bus run in the morning.
*Normal breakfast service.
*Report to class (homeroom, 1st hour, etc...)
*Students may then be signed out, appropriately through the office, after they get their personal belongings, by an adult.
*Students may stay the entire day, they will be supervised normally by our staff.
*Normal lunch service in groups less than 100.
*Normal afternoon bus run to bring all remaining students home.
STUDENTS MUST HAVE THEIR PERSONAL BELONGINGS AND THEIR CHROMEBOOK FOR THE EXTENDED SCHOOL CLOSURE!
This plan allows families to take their student home after getting their belongings (make sure you get your Chromebook) and allows families to have their children supervised and fed for the day so they can make arrangements for the weeks to come.
I will have additional communication regarding Spring Break in April.
Thank all of you for your cooperation and patience as we work through this unique situation. Go Jets!
John Krimmel, Superintendent
