  • After school tutoring and athletic study hall will be available every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:50-3:50.  Any student wishing to attend may show up as long as they bring work.  Athletes will know in advance if they must attend.

  • If your child is absent from school due to an illness or appointment, please call the office in the morning and let us know 517-849-3210

  • Students who are quarantined are required to complete all classwork while they are away from school.  Your teacher should have Google Classroom or Schoology set up to deliver all assignments and instruction.  Failure to complete assignments on time will result in a lowered grade.  If you are sick, please let your teacher know so an exception can be.

  • MSTEP scores have been released and will be sent home in the next few weeks.  Scores should be available now in Skyward.  Simply login to your parent portal, then click on “State Assessment Data” in the last box on the left hand side.  You should see the results from last year as well as previous testing data.

  • During sporting events, please talk with your child and remind them to stay off of the baseball and softball fields.  This is especially problematic during football games.  There is an area behind the bleachers where the students can play.  We are trying to keep the softball fields from any damage during construction.
