As you may have heard, under a new bill passed by the state legislature, Michigan school districts would not have to reschedule up to four cancelled days that occurred during a declared state of emergency. While the bill has been passed by the House and Senate, it does not become law until it is signed by Governor Whitmer (which has yet to happen). Since we are operating on a short timeline and we expect the bill will be signed, we wanted to communicate how this would impact Lapeer Community Schools.
Since the District was closed for three of the four state of emergency days, we would not be required to add any additional days to the end of our school year. We are, however, still required to keep our second built-in make-up day as previously communicated. This means students will be required to come to school on Friday, May 24.
Once the bill is signed into law, the last day of school for students on the traditional and year-round calendars will be June 14 as originally scheduled.
Thank you for your patience in this matter. We will communicate further on this subject if any changes to the schedule will be required.
