Eisenhower Letter to Community

Dear Eisenhower Parents/Guardians:

As you know, the first priority of our school is the health and safety of our entire community. I need to share with you that due to a significant number of new cases of COVID-19 and the resulting mandated quarantine of Eisenhower students, we will, as a precaution, need to temporarily pause our in-person instruction. This will begin Tuesday, March 23.

This is an extremely difficult action for our school to take. However, we continue to receive new information daily on multiple individuals with confirmed cases being in Eisenhower High School. At this time, we have approximately 40 positive student cases resulting in more than 400 students being placed in quarantine, as mandated by the Macomb County Health Department. We need to take this step now to pause in-person instruction to reduce any further spread in our community.

The following will be the schedule for the next several weeks:

  • Beginning tomorrow, March 23, 2021, your student will return to remote instruction with their current teachers until Spring Vacation, which begins April 2.
  • Following spring vacation, Eisenhower students will follow the previously communicated schedule for the week of April 12. We anticipate students scheduled to test on April 13 and 14 will be able to do so in person. Otherwise, all students are remote the week of April 12.
  • Students will return to in-person instruction the week of April 19.

Eisenhower spring sports tryouts will be paused and start-up dates will be shared by our athletic department as information becomes available. Students participating in winter post-season competition will be able to complete those activities following new guidelines from the State of Michigan regarding COVID-19 testing.

Our ability to return to – and remain in – full day in-person instruction depends on all of us. It is critical that all of us take the necessary steps to mitigate the spread in our community. These include self-screening and staying home if you do not feel well, the use of face coverings, distancing, regular handwashing, and the use of disinfectant.

Please contact our office if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Robert Monroe
Interim Superintendent
