TIME TO CELEBRATE!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR MUSTANG STATE CHAMPIONS!!! What an amazing team, coaches, parents, and fan base. The composure, leadership, sportsmanship, and selflessness of our players and coaches this season was admirable and exemplified what it means to be a Mustang! They are all role models on the court and in the classroom. It has been an honor and a humbling experience to be part of this team's historic journey. Munising is truly a special place and has much for which to be proud. I've never witnessed such universal support from all corners and all generations of any community and add to that the collective goodwill expressed by the people from towns across the Upper Peninsula and it felt like the Mustangs were destined to win. UP POWER!!! Due to dangerous travel conditions, the team will be spending tonight in East Lansing before making the journey home tomorrow. We are planning a community celebration to take place after spring break so that everyone can participate in honoring our Mustang Boys' Basketball State Championship Team. Stay tuned for more information to be shared during the week of April 3rd. Orange & Black forever!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: MUNISING PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS CLOSED TOMORROW (THURSDAY 3/23) AND FRIDAY (3/24). Hello Mustang School Community After an adrenaline pumping win for the Mustangs in the Boys' Quarterfinal Basketball Game last night, I had restless sleep due to the notion that we'd have important decisions to make in the morning. Therefore, with broad scale support from the Board of Education, and the Teacher's and Support Staff unions, I am reaching out to all of you to let you know that we have decided to close school down tomorrow (3/23) and Friday (3/24) for a variety of good reasons. This decision did not come easily as we know that the early closure is beneficial for many families and yet can be an imposition for others. However, the closure will put the district and community in great position to fully support the Boys' Basketball Team as it advances on it's historic journey to the Breslin Center as ambassadors for Munising at the state level and to ensure the district avoids potential loss of state funding due to low student attendance rates. The current situation is that we have many students and families already gone for spring break and reports are that most buses are only at 50% ridership today. If our attendance numbers drop even more as an out flux of students leave to attend the game(s), we risk not meeting the 75% attendance threshold for full daily foundation payment from the state tomorrow, and especially on Friday. Combine that with the fact that we already have several teachers and key staff members scheduled to be absent from the district tomorrow and/or Friday for non-athletic related reasons and a deficit of substitutes, the loss of any additional staff members due to sickness over the next two days would only exacerbate our ability to staff classrooms with certified adults. Any additional absences of students and staff will compromise learning in the classrooms. In closing tomorrow and Friday, we will only need to add one more day to our school calendar which extends the year from Thursday, June 8th to Friday, June 9th with the first half of that day with pupils in session and the second half of that day being teacher professional development time. We still have one snow day (forgiven time waiver day) left that we can use for inclement weather yet this spring if needed and not be required to return on June 12th. In case you were wondering, the Michigan Department of Education will not allow districts to use a forgiven time day to cover a sports related closure. Please contact me or the building principals if you have any questions. For those families that this closure creates an imposition, I apologize on behalf of the district, and for those families and community members that are helped by this closure, I am glad that we could help. In closing, please support the Boys' Basketball Team and the Munising School Community in whatever way that you can.....whether it be traveling to East Lansing to watch them play tomorrow and hopefully Saturday or watching them live online using the NFHS Network. If you have any game related questions, please contact Nicole Lasak at email@example.com. GO MUSTANGS! Sincerely, Michael J. Travis, Superintendent firstname.lastname@example.org
