Message from Superintendent Saunders

September 17th, 2020

Dear Superior Hills Parents and Guardians,

As you are already aware, Superior Hills had a staff member test positive for COVID-19. We were notified by the Marquette County Health Department of this occurrence on Tuesday, September 15th. Today, we were notified of a second staff member testing positive for COVID-19.  It was also brought to our attention that several more staff members and a small number of students have been identified as close contacts. All close contacts are required to quarantine for 14 days beginning from the last possible time of exposure, September 15th.

In consultation with the Marquette County Health Department, we have jointly concurred that, in the best interest of student and staff health and safety, Superior Hills should be closed to in-person learning through September 29th.  As of this communication, we will plan to reopen the building for face to face instruction beginning September 30th. 

During the time Superior Hills is closed, all students will be set up as online learners. Chromebooks will be sent home today with kids. 

We understand how difficult it is for families to make alternate arrangements on short notice for these upcoming days.  Please know that we appreciate your help in stopping the potential spread of this disease through this quick action.  Our staff has been diligent in wearing masks while working and complying with our strict district guidelines.  We will continue to clean and disinfect light switches, door knobs/push bars, locker handles, toys, bathrooms, copy machines, etc. in addition to our regular cleaning and disinfecting schedule.  All families will be notified as soon as we receive additional direction from the Health Department.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our building principal, Mr. Sedgwick, the Marquette County Health Department, or myself with questions or concerns.

William B. Saunders
