Coronavirus Closure Information
Governor Gretchen Whitmer and State Superintendent Michael Rice ordered the closure of all K-12 school buildings, public, private, and boarding, starting Monday, March 16 until Sunday, April 12th in order to slow the spread of (COVID-19) Coronavirus. We realize this is unprecedented, and will present many hardships for our families. This decision is to help us all stay safe. We want to provide as much support as possible to our families throughout this situation.

Emotional Support: Key tips from mental well-being experts:
• Sleep is the single most effective thing we can do to reset our brain and body health each day.
• Eat well: Nutrition is key to vitality. It promotes healthy brain development and function and
also helps to prevent disease.
• Keep hydrated: Water is essential to mental and physical health and performance.
• Talk: Communicate with your kids to help them handle the stress they may feel, but
may not know how to express except through behavior during this time of uncertainty.
Food Support: See Redford Union School District Website for this information. We will provide food to our students for both breakfast & lunch.
Thank you for being a valuable partner in our efforts to combat the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Together we will get through this because we are #RUStrong!
