Letter from Superintendent Mr. Grusecki

February 19, 2014

Dear Southgate Community Members,

I would like to take this opportunity to share some information regarding what is currently going on in the Southgate Community School District.

As we are all aware, this winter has brought the area a tremendous amount of snow and brutally cold temperatures that this part of Michigan has not seen for quite some time.  The district has used up the allowable six (6) days that the State of Michigan allows for weather and other issues that schools may experience for the school year.  With this winter being as it has up to this point and not knowing what the rest of winter and early spring may bring us,  we may still be in for more weather-related closures. 

The decision to close school is one that is made for the safety of everyone involved.   Many parents have contacted me and inquiring about what the district will do regarding make up days.   The State is in favor of full days of instruction which provides for a more meaningful educational experience and that is what we will do if we indeed need to make up instructional time.  A lost day of instruction should be replaced by a full day of instruction.  Once we get to the beginning of April and we know for sure where we stand, then we will get information out as to what we need to do.   Thank you for your patience and understanding with this.

As most of you are already aware, I will be retiring from K-12 education in June of 2014.  I am not leaving for another school district or another career.  When I came to Southgate in 2012, I knew that it was my last full time position as a school administrator.  It has been an extremely rewarding and challenging experience, and I am very sad to go due to the great people here in Southgate.  The students, parents, staff and Board of Education have been great to work with and even though it has been challenging, I know that Southgate is on the path toward excellence financially and academically.

I would also like to mention that the Board has decided on my replacement, and I feel honored and confident that Leslie Hainrihar will continue the work we have started and need to continue to do to make Southgate Community Schools the best choice for students and parents.
