A Note From Ms. Sickler
- This month Harvest will be finding ways in our learning spaces to celebrate Black History Month. At Harvest, we often remind each other of the concept of both/and thinking that was shared in a social justice training that took place this summer. We realize that Black history is American history and should be taught all year long AND we hope to find opportunities to highlight and celebrate the many contributions of Black Americans throughout this month.
- If you have been keeping track of the Saline Schools COVID-19 Dashboard you may have noticed that we had an uptick of positive cases and students/staff in quarantine. Please continue to be vigilant in screening for symptoms prior to sending your child to school each day.
Here are your “home school” updates:
Harvest Specials Rotation
In-Person Students: Here is the schedule and rotation for the days that you are in school.
On the days that you are not in school, check out these enrichment activities. This will also be shared via SeeSaw on Monday.
Virtual Students: You will be back following your daily special schedule.
From Interim Superintendent Laatsch’s January 27th message:
There continue to be a number of primary factors that we are analyzing to determine how much in-person time we feel is appropriate for our students. These factors include Covid-19 data trends, mitigation strategies, the vaccination process and now, the Covid variant that we are monitoring closely. The information graphic below summarizes these factors and provides a current progress report.

Did you know that Girls on the Run is getting organized for its spring season? Girls on the Run is an 8-week program for girls in grades 3rd through 5th that combines training for a non-competitive 5k event with a dynamic life skills curriculum. Twice weekly lessons and interactive activities are led by volunteer coaches who create a positive and safe environment for girls to learn about themselves, connect with their peers and contribute to the community. The program culminates in a non-competitive, celebratory 5k event (local to each site for 2021) that allows the girls a chance to shine with an overwhelming sense of accomplishment! Participant registration will open February 22.
No prior experience necessary- we provide the training, supplies, support and inspiration! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or site liaison Joyce Mueller (email@example.com / 734-972-7389) for more information.
