We are very close to making the scheduler live for parents to sign up for a time to have their student's virtual conference on Thursday, November 5th. After putting in their information, they will be sent an email with a link to the scheduler, which will look like the image I have included with this post. We ask that after selecting a time, you then go to the bottom of the column, add special request, where you would then tell us whether you wanted to do the conference by phone call or google meet. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Scott at the HS Office.

Update: Due to the potential for changes in guidance from our state, we will NOT be implementing any new safety protocols for the week of October 5th. Things will run as they did since the beginning of school (facial coverings for 6-12 at all times and only in common areas for TK-5) until we get more information on what these changes mean for us.

To Our Baraga Families: Due to rising coronavirus numbers in the area, the Governor will be moving our region to Phase 4 on October 9th. This causes some changes to the safety protocols schools must follow according to the MI Safe Schools Roadmap and executive orders. The requirement of facial coverings for all TK-12 students and staff is one of those changes. Baraga Schools will start to practice implementing this on Monday so that everyone has some time to get adjusted. We are asking that all students come to school with a facial covering on Monday, October 5th. Remember to take your cloth facial coverings home each night to wash them or get a new disposable one each day. We know this isn't easy but we are dedicated to keeping the school safe for face-to-face learning. The older kids have been doing such a great job adhering to these requirements. Wash your hands often, cover your coughs and sneezes, practice social distancing, and stay healthy.  #VIKINGSTRONG https://www.uppermichiganssource.com/app/2020/10/02/upper-michigan-moves-back-to-phase-4/?fbclid=IwAR3_B2BcTw-jIcTlr8V1TZhZ4BiC3y3cCvWDrVdCdsXt3UgEo3lQyErZGOU

To our BAS families: A confirmed case of coronavirus, (COVID-19) has been identified at Baraga Area Schools. We are working closely with the Western Upper Peninsula Health Department to identify exposures and prevent further cases. The school feels it is in the best interest and safety of the staff, students, and community to close the building to students tomorrow, September 21, 2020, in order to allow for thorough contact tracing. The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are close contact with one another (within about 6 feet for at least 15 minutes). Illness begins 2 to 14 days after a person is exposed. The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. Symptoms can include: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny or stuffy nose, loss of taste or smell, abdominal pain. At this time close contacts with exposures have been notified separately and are following guidelines of WUPHD. There are many things that can be done to keep our schools, homes, and communities “COVID-19 free” and protect ourselves and loved ones: Children and adults should stay home when ill. Washing hands often with soap and running warm water for at least 20 seconds. If a hand washing station is not available, use hand sanitizer properly. Gels, rubs, and hand wipes work well against COVID-19 if they contain at least 60% alcohol. Throw wipes in the trash after use. Practice Good Respiratory Etiquette (cover a cough with elbow versus hand). If you have questions, please contact Western Upper Peninsula Health Department at (906) 482-7382. If your child is identified as a close contact separate communication will be sent. Additional information can be found at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html Thank you, Richard Sarau Superintendent Baraga Area Schools 906-353-6664

Here is the latest update on our school graduation. Graduation will be on May 29th at 7:00 pm. Unfortunately we are not able to open graduation to the public. We have two potential plans. Plan A will be to start with a parade through town with the fire department prior to the start of graduation (6:00 pm). A map of the parade will be posted. The fire department will then lead the seniors onto the track/field and they will take one lap around the field prior to parking. There will be seats on the field set up for our 20 seniors, spaced 6 feet apart. There will also be seating for 2 people of each senior’s choosing. Seating locations will be marked on the field. If the senior would like additional people at the graduation, each senior may have 1 vehicle on a marked spot on the other side of the field for that vehicle. Those people must remain in their vehicle for the ceremony. The only gate open will be the West end gate. After the ceremony, graduates will walk their family members to their cars and everyone will leave. Seniors and their families will get more detailed instructions that will be sent to them and handed out at drive-thru senior breakfast. Plan B is the parade and then a drive thru graduation. The vehicles would be parked along the track/field and would drive down one-by one with the graduates and family members in their cars and no seating on the field. We have gone above and beyond with plan A. Please be prepared for either plan. We intend to use plan A, plan B is a back-up in case of events beyond the school’s control. Thank you for being understanding in these difficult circumstances. Good news: The Woodland Singers will once again be able to be part of graduation and this year Eagle Country WCUP (105.7) will be doing a live broadcast of the ceremony. It is also planned to be live streamed on social media. We will be following guidelines set by these authorities. Please respect social distancing and health department guidelines. Masks and sanitizer will be available at the graduation. If you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms please refrain from coming to graduation and take advantage of the live stream and radio broadcast. The district will be following the Governor's orders and health department recommendations.

Graduation Status: We are still planning on doing some sort of ceremony for seniors. We cannot do anything other than a virtual ceremony until the stay-at-home order is lifted. We are brain-storming possibilities and will keep everyone posted. We want to hold onto caps and gowns until we know more about what we are allowed to do for a ceremony but seniors will get them. Senior advisors are talking with seniors and if they have questions they can email them to lwisniewski@baragaschools.org and mfrantti@baragaschools.org Again, thank you for your patience as we get this all figured out.

As we all do our best to stay safe during this difficult time, remember our medical personnel as they continue working. Experiencing a lack of PPE such as medical masks, Bay Ambulance reached out to us here at the school for assistance. Our STEM class this year has been learning to design and print objects with our 3D printers, so here is an example of the real world problems we can help solve with STEM and ingenuity. This is a 3D printed mask for medical personnel or for personal use that uses a small 4 cm x 4 cm filter material. Filters can be cut out of surgical masks or filter sheets. Our plan is to supply as many of these 3D printed masks as possible for our local medical workers and school personnel. Anyone who is interested in donating or buying spools of PLA plastic to help out in this time of need can contact Richard Sarau at the school (906-353-6664).

If you would like to wave back at your favorite staff member just look at the map and meet us outside. If you are not on our route and still want to see us we have a parking area planned for you! The car parade will start at the school at 5pm this Monday, April 6th. This will be so exciting but we want to make sure we are all practicing social distancing and being safe during this event. Stay in your cars if you drive and just wave from the window. Stay in your yards if we pass your house and be sure to stand at least 6 feet from people. See you Monday! #VikingStrong

UPDATE: APRIL 2, 2020 Governor Whitmer has announced today that all Michigan K-12 schools will be closed for the remainder of the year. We know this will cause additional stress on an already stressful situation but our Governor feels this is the best direction to keep families and the community safe. It was announced that all seniors will graduate and all students showing adequate progress prior to the closure will move onto the next grade. State testing has been canceled for the 2019-2020 school year. We will continue supplemental learning for the remainder of the year. All of these resources and updates can be found on our website or app but our staff is still in the development stages of the learning plans for the school and more information will be made available as things are finalized. Please bear with us as we sort through this ever changing information and be assured that we realize there are multiple barriers to this type of learning and we are working hard to meet the various needs of our students.

The “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order that went into place this morning means that school will be closed for at least three more weeks starting today, March 24th. As of right now we are continuing to provide meal pick-up. Information on how you can participate in the food program can be found in our news article or on our Instagram and Facebook pages. We will continue to keep you informed on what is happening but this is uncharted territory for us all and because things are changing at such a fast pace we currently have more questions than answers. We are awaiting further guidance from the state on many things, such as online learning. For right now, teachers are sharing resources and lessons with students on various platforms of their choosing. We are working on getting a resource together that gives parents and guardians all of this information in one place. Please be on the lookout for something on our webpage. We appreciate your patience as we continue to sort through the details of this ever-changing event. Stay home, stay healthy. We are Viking Strong and will get through this together.

As an FYI, our alert system for voice calls does have a slight delay. The delay at the beginning of those recordings is a result of the system's advanced voicemail detection feature. It is awaiting a human voice or beep (from a voicemail) before playing, to ensure the everyone receives the full message. We have added an automated intro to cut down on that pause time but be aware that there still is a pause until it hears a voice. Thank you and have a great weekend.

Student of the Week recipients for January 27th-31st 2020 are Ash and Courtney. Here is what teachers had to say about these Vikings: Ash comes to class each day with a desire to learn. Ash is a great class participant that thinks deeply about our discussions, has valuable input to contribute, and adds richness to these conversations. Ash has a down to earth personality that gives others something to strive for. Keep up the great work, Ash. Courtney has been a hard working student/athlete. She is always on time, asks questions and is a part of class everyday whether it is her High School classes or her college classes. Courtney is not only concerned with what her work ethic about what kind of person she is, she is also concerned about her behavior in school and understands how to communicate with teachers and students and treats them with kindness and respect in the classroom. Courtney is ready for the adult world.
