Update April 24, 2020

Good Afternoon Decatur Township Families,

This is Dr. Prusiecki, Superintendent of Decatur Township Schools.  I wanted to touch base with all of you as we have only nine days of eLearning left after today, with our semester-end concluding on Friday, May 15th.  As we are all working through this difficult time, we are working to provide you with clear direction regarding the end of this school year, registration for next school year, and many of the other items that come up with these transitions.  

As we enter the month of May, we will share information and guidance for the following:

  • Class of 2020’s Graduation 
  • Online registration for next school year as well as traditional registration
  • Being able to keep iPads for the summer or turning them in
  • “Locker clean out” or the acquiring of personal items
  • Each Principal will send out “end-of-the-year” information per building

I want to reassure our school community that we will continue to provide the best educational opportunities in spite of our current global situation.  Our vision of being “Tomorrow Ready” can only be fulfilled by working together to provide our students with a quality learning environment.  Be safe and look for our next message coming very soon.  Enjoy your weekend and take care!

As always, Together, We are, Decatur Proud!!

Dr. Prusiecki

Jack Butler Drive-By Memorial April 18

The family of Jack Butler is putting together a drive-by memorial on Saturday, April 18, from 1-4 pm at his house on Morgan Ave in Camby. We are asking that you simply bring a non-perishable food item to leave in his driveway. These will be donated to the Goodwin Center, something Jack would be proud of. Write down a favorite memory you have of Jack and include a picture if you can. There will be a basket to put these in. We don’t want anyone to make a trip to a store, we want everyone to stay safe! Write on a piece of paper, grab a can from your pantry, cut a flower from your yard, make a sign to display in your car window for family to see as you drive past his house. Jack’s great-niece, Hannah, will be putting an album together of all the memories shared.

The family asks that you enter onto Finley St from Ratliff Rd, continue onto Morgan Ave, heading south. This should keep traffic moving. Please wait in your car until you are in front of Jack’s drive, drop off your items, wave to family, and move on to Camby Rd. Once we can all be together safely, there will be a memorial service. Please feel free to share this.

Kindergarten Registration for 2020-2021

It is time to begin the registration process for the 2020-2021 school year at Liberty! 

Our previously scheduled Spring Registration Day (April 22nd) has been postponed, but you may complete Phase I of registration from home. Complete the online portion of the registration process.

Phase II will be scheduled once buildings reopen, which includes additional paperwork and collection of documents (birth certificate, immunization record, proof of residency and parent's picture ID).  Your child will be registered once both Phase I and Phase II are completed.

In order to register for Kindergarten your child must turn five (5) years old by August 1. If your child will not be five by August 1, you may request an early entrance assessment by emailing acummings@decaturproud.org.  You may not complete registration without approval.

At this time, we are only registering returning students for preschool. Parents of returning preschoolers may complete Phase I registration, as well. 

If your child has not been enrolled in our preschool prior to the upcoming school year please email smeier@decaturproud.org to request enrollment for your child. You will not be able to complete registration without prior approval for preschool.

No Contact/No Touch Technology Support Update

There has been some confusion regarding the iPad replacement process. Just for clarification

You must sign up and reserve a time to come get your iPad replaced using the link that was provided. This is for inventory reasons, as well as safety concerns. We only have so many iPads to give out, and do not have enough for a large number of walk-ups, so we need to keep an organized list of appointments. We also want to prevent the congregation of people at door 4 for health safety reasons. Here is the link again to the form to sign up.

We have now opened up Thursdays for iPad repairs.  Please be sure to sign up for a time on our website or the link above.

Please also be sure to leave your child's name in regards to who the iPad is for. Especially if you have more than one child in the district. This will allow us to know who to assign the new iPad to in Skyward and make the process quicker for everyone.

Updated Remote Learning Plan for the Remainder of the School Year

Decatur Township Families,

This is Dr. Prusiecki, Superintendent of Decatur Township Schools.  

I want to share with you several items for the remainder of this school year:

We will continue eLearning for the rest of the school year.  Attached are the schedules for April and May, as they will also be posted on our district and school websites.  eLearning will be every Monday, Wednesday and Friday with our last day of eLearning being Friday, May 15th. 

As of today, all of our buildings, athletic facilities and playgrounds are closed to the public until at least Friday, May 1st.  More information will be forthcoming.

To our Senior Class of 2020, as directed by the Governor, the school year is completed as of today, Friday, April 3rd.  All Seniors who were enrolled in their current classes will receive credit for those classes. Both Decatur Central High School and Decatur Township School for Excellence, will be in contact with those students who may need additional credits to graduate.  

As stated in my last communication, we will have Graduation for the class of 2020.  When, where and how that will look is to be determined.  When we know, we will let you know as soon as possible.

Other than Graduation, and the possibility of High School Prom, as of today, all regularly scheduled school events are canceled for the year.  If there are any changes, it would only be as the current environment would allow, which, as of today, does not seem likely.

For grades Kindergarten through 11th grade, we will continue to learn!  Our Decatur “APP” expectations for our eLearning are threefold:

                A = Attendance - You need to log in for the remaining 18 days of eLearning.

                P = Participate - You need to interact and try your best!

                P = Proficiency - The goal is to understand and internalize the information being taught.

Food Service will continue to serve meals at our buildings, except for DMS and DTSE, from 11am-12pm every Monday up to and including May 18th.  

As we continue through the rest of the school year, more updates on items like locker cleanout, awards, and iPad returns, will come from either myself or your building principal.  We will continue to stay in touch and remain the great school community we are. Thank you to our teachers and parents for working tirelessly in this partnership for the benefit of our children.  Together, we are Decatur Proud!

Let’s continue to be safe, social distance and stay healthy! 

Sincerely,

Dr. Prusiecki

Superintendent

Update on eLearning

Decatur Township Families,

  This is Dr. Prusiecki, Superintendent of Decatur Township Schools.  As of today, Thursday, April 2nd, our State Governor has extended regular school closure through the remainder of this 2019-2020 school year.  This means that eLearning will be extended for the rest of the year and, with that, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered.  Hearing the Governor's message today like every other Hoosier, I want to inform you that we are developing our plans for our school community through April, May, and into the Summer.  The goal is to share those details tomorrow, Friday, April 3rd.  Be safe, maintain social distancing, and together, we will remain Decatur Proud through these challenging times.

Sincerely,

Dr. Prusiecki

Superintendent
