Hello Dowagiac Union Schools community. There is false information being shared, that needs to be corrected. NO students were sent home yesterday from any building in the district, for having tested positive for COVID-19. We are required to post information regarding students or staff that the Health Department reports to us. Additionally, we would contact anyone who may have been in contact with someone who is positive for C-19 at school and needs to quarantine.

The notification that was issued today referencing Distant Learning and In-person instruction, the Board determined at last Wednesday's meeting that we will use distance learning during the first five (5) weeks for students in kindergarten - 12 grade being that we are in Phase 4 of the governor's system. After three weeks, the district will reassess and determine if we will extend distance-learning beyond the five weeks and consider In-Person Instruction. If our region is moved into Phase 5 during the first five weeks, we will assess moving to in-person instruction. If this transition happens, it will not happen overnight. We believe it will take a least one (1) week but no more than two (2) weeks to make the shift.

If you have visited Chris Taylor Field lately, you would have seen the new “walk of fame” sidewalk with the inlaid bricks. Unfortunately, due to an issue with the process, cracking has started taking place and the project has to be redone. This will begin soon and the cost is being covered by the contractor and project management company, with no expense to the district. This delay is unfortunate, but the Board and administration felt this part of the whole project could not be accepted in its current condition.
