In a message to parents of students in the Macomb School District regarding the state-mandate closure of all schools due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Superintendent Matthew Twomey said plans have been made to provide Academic Engagement Days for all students and meals for those who need assistance. Twomey suggested that each family go to the district’s Skyward platform and confirm their address, e-mail and phone number. Meals will be delivered door-to-door for families that request them, loaded on buses starting at 6:30 a.m. Those requesting “grab-and-go” meals will find them available between 9 and 10 a.m. At Lincoln, Edison, and Macomb Junior and Senior High School.
Twomey said the district has collected data to see what families need electronic devices and will see to their delivery. The District has also worked with MTC Communications to provide Wi-Fi for the Prairie View and Wheeler Street communities, in addition to the numerous hot-spots currently available.
School buildings are closed to students and the public, but school and district office staff will monitor e-mail throughout the closure.
