Dear Flint Families,                                  


We hope that your summer break has been safe, relaxing and filled with new memories for your family. As a reminder, the first day of school is tomorrow, Wednesday, August 3. This is a half day for all scholars. To make sure our students start off on the right track, it is critical that they attend school all day, every day – especially the first day of the school year to help set the tone for the rest of the school year.


As always, the safety and well-being of our scholars, families, teachers and staff remains our highest priority. After meeting with our medical team, we have decided that masks will not be required in our buildings, but they will be recommended. We will still implement measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, including hand sanitizer stations and thorough surface cleanings. A full list of COVID-19 protocols can be found on our website. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 case rate in the community to determine our safety protocols, and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding.


While the start of the school year is imminent, there is still time to enroll at Flint Community Schools for the new school year. If you have not already, we encourage parents and guardians to enroll their scholars as soon as possible. Visit FlintSchools.org and click on “Centralized Enrollment” to begin the enrollment process, and please call 810-767-6158 if you have questions.


Finally, we encourage families to download or print the 2022-23 school year calendar to keep track of important dates, including intersessions, half days and breaks. The calendar can be found on our website at FlintSchools.org (in the “schools” section).


We look forward to seeing our scholars, families, teachers and staff tomorrow, Wednesday, August 3 for the first day of school. Thank you for your continued commitment to your child’s academic, social and emotional journey and remaining Flint-Focused.


Kevelin Jones, Superintendent
