Return to School Update | August 30, 2021

  • Dear Fraser Families,

    We are excited to kick off a new school year next week and look forward to welcoming back our students to campus. Last Thursday, we held our annual Fraser Family Tailgate, and it was a huge success.  It was wonderful to see our community coming together to celebrate our Fraser Pride.

    We know this has been a challenging time for all of us, but it is our hope that our families will continue to show respect for each other to ensure that our students can continue to receive the best education in the safest environment possible. We can all agree that our children belong in school where they can have consistent schedules five days a week; enjoy meeting with friends; and have the opportunity to build lasting relationships with our teachers and support staff.   

    As we near the start of school, we wanted to update you on our COVID-19 Protocols. As always, Fraser Public School’s top priority remains the health and well-being of all, and we are doing our part every day to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

    We have and will continue to work closely with our local Macomb County Health Department. As we have discussed before, this is a fluid situation, and we will adjust accordingly if needed. We will continue to follow the law and any school requirements. The health and safety of our staff, students and families remains our top priority. 

    Mask Policies

    Masks are optional for all staff, students and visitors on campus. We will have masks available in all of our buildings for anyone who needs one. Fraser Public Schools encourages everyone who is not fully vaccinated to wear a face covering. Facial coverings are a safe, and proven strategy to prevent secondary transmission of this aggressive Delta variant in schools. Masks are primarily intended to reduce the emission of virus-laden droplets. They also help reduce inhalation of these droplets by the wearer. We ask everyone to respect each individual’s choice whether or not to wear a mask.

    Masks must be worn on Fraser Public School buses. The CDC requires masks to be worn on school buses.

    Procedure when a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19

    When a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, he/she should notify the Macomb County Health Department at (586) 463-3750 during normal business hours. Additionally, families and staff members should contact the school administrator.

    The individual should stay home and isolate for at least 10 days from the first date of symptoms or 10 days from the test date if asymptomatic AND fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications and improved symptoms.

    *Update 9/7/21: The quarantine period may be reduced to 7 days if the direct contact receives a negative viral (PCR or antigen) test performed at least 5 days after exposure. Proof of negative test must be from a medical professional and provided to the building principal.**

    Fraser Public Schools will be reporting all COVID-19 positive cases to the Macomb County Health Department (MCHD).  The MCHD will investigate to determine if any additional students or staff should be quarantined.  We will continue to work with our Health Department to support these efforts.


    Students will be required to wear a mask on our buses. In addition, we will have seating charts in place.

    Vaccinations and COVID-19 Testing

    We will not require vaccination nor proof of vaccination from any of our staff, students or visitors. However, if someone is identified as a close contact they will need to show proof of vaccination in order to avoid a quarantine. Additionally, we will not be testing our students, staff or visitors.

    Health Screenings

    As we have said before, please keep your child home if they are feeling sick. Teach your child to cover their cough or sneeze and wash their hands or use hand sanitizer often. We encourage you to perform daily self-assessments for COVID-19 but the daily screener is no longer required. 

    Cleaning Policies

    • Each building will have a temporary table set up in the entry vestibule with available face coverings and hand sanitizer.
    • Cleaning and sanitization practices will continue in a modified capacity.
    • Wiping down of the highly touched surfaces will continue throughout the day. 
    • Wall hung hand sanitizer stations will remain in place and product will be provided.
    • Hand sanitizer bottles will be available in classrooms as requested.
    • Classroom cleaning kits will be available for those classrooms that request them.
    • Students are encouraged to wash their hands or use sanitizer often. 

    Fraser Public Schools continues to evaluate all protocols and procedures as additional information becomes available from county, state, and national health protection agencies.

    We are proud to be part of a community that values education and partners together with us to prioritize the health and wellness of our students, staff, and families.

    We appreciate your support to help keep our students safe and in-person.

    With Fraser Pride,

    Ms. Carrie Wozniak
