Hello Greenspire Community –
I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend
Reminder – Masks are still required on campus for both students and any visitor, both inside and outside. Currently, schools and health care facilities are not part of the recent changes to mask protocols. We are still bound by our COVID-19 Extended Learning Plans. Over the next few weeks, we should hear more about what protocols schools will be required to follow in September. Stay tuned!
Additionally, please make sure that your child has a refillable water bottle each day at school, particularly as it gets warmer and students are outside more often during the school day.
Last Day – Remote Classes
The final day for remote classes will be Friday, June 11th. Remote students will have some special end of year activities scheduled on Monday, June 14th and Tuesday, June 15th similar to the in-person students. Stay tuned for more information!
Registration Packets 2021-2022

Opportunity to Become a Host Family
Please see the message below from Greenspire parent Susan O’Connor about a great opportunity to be a host family in the coming months. There is also an attached brochure with more information.
I am Susan O’Connor and I am part of CETUSA, a non-profit organization that places foreign exchange students with host families in our region. We currently have high school-aged students from a variety of different countries who are hoping to hear that a family has chosen them to host. Countries include Australia, Italy, China, Thailand, Brazil, Denmark, Spain, Norway, Japan, Sweden, Germany, and more! I had an exchange student from France live with me during my junior year of high school, and it was a life-changing experience! If this is something you’d be interested in, or perhaps you know someone else who might be interested in hosting, please contact me and I’ll connect with you regarding the details. Thank you for considering opening your heart and your home to these amazing kids! Susan O’Connor- 231.218.0774 firstname.lastname@example.org
