June Newsletter

Rolland-Warner 6/7 Campus

Stevens Scribbles

The last year and a half have been difficult for everyone, whether dealing with illnesses, quarantines, remote learning, masks, or frankly the ever-changing rules that we live by for everyday life. I would like to personally thank the students, school staff, and parents for everyone's understanding, compassion, and flexibility as we worked through living and schooling during the pandemic.


With that said, we are two weeks to the end of the year and I have included the Exam Schedule for the second week of June below. Be sure to check PowerSchool often as all late/missing assignments must be turned in by June 4th.


I wish everyone a safe and healthy summer vacation.

Did You Know...

How we offer support for our student's mental health?

We not only have our two school counselors that are available to meet with students for academic or social needs, but have an extra counselor from the ISD that is available for students to meet with if they have an emergency need or weekly if they have a filled out permission slip.

Our building is also lucky to have a Social Worker to assist with restorative practices and other social/emotional needs.


RW includes a citizenship mark each semester on report card?

This citizenship mark comes from citizenship standards that include behavior, participation in education, tardies, etc. This is different from academic ability or actual grades earned. Each semester PBIS incentives include a reward for obtaining Outstanding Citizenship and for the end of the year an outside ice cream social for all Satisfactory and/or Outstanding Citizenship marks.


LCS offers a low cost sports physicals night?

Chromebook Collection June 4th or 7th

All students will be required to turn in the Chromebook checked out to them on June 4th or 7th. They will still be able to use Chromebooks at the building but not take them home.

Please send all chargers with the Chromebook.

Exams June 9th-11th

Rolland-Warner will be aligning with LHS and Zemmer for end-of-the-year exams on June 9th (full day), June 10th (early release), and June 11th (early release). Because of this, zero hour will be canceled on these days to accommodate a very difficult bus schedule. Zero-Hour Students who take the bus will use the same bus schedule as for the January exams and ride with all other RW Students. Please see the Exam Schedule below.

RW Counselor's Corner

Counselors are super busy right now scheduling for next year, M-Step testing, 5th-grade tours, and end of the year preparation. Should you have any questions about the above reach out to the counselors and they can assist!


Reach out for academic or social needs to our counselors! They can steer you in the correct direction!

Our counselors are Mrs. Price, who works with students with last names A-K, and Mrs. Crespo who will be working with students with the last name L-Z. They can be reached at:

Next year, we will continue to have a therapist from the Lapeer County Intermediate School District, who can meet with students throughout the week for social needs, however, the ISD does require a permission slip. Please have this slip filled out and return the first week of school so we can be up and running!

COVID-19 Information

Student Daily Self-Screening

PLEASE be aware that you must self-screen students daily prior to sending to school.

Should the student exhibit any of the COVID-19 symptoms while at the school they will be isolated and parents must come pick up the student and follow the procedures laid out in the LCS COVID-19 Preparedness & Response Student Procedures.

A free app is available for any Michigan Resident to self-screen at https://misymptomapp.state.mi.us/

OR

Utilize the LCS COVID-19 Parent Screening Tool below:

District Wide Procedures for Sick Students

The district has a detailed process and form for any student that reports they have ANY of the symptoms associated with COVID-19. These symptoms include but are not limited to sore throat, headache, nausea, stomach ache, coughing, difficulty breathing, etc.

Students are required to be picked up immediately and the office staff must fill out a form that is sent to the Superintendent's Office. You will receive a letter from the Superintendent's Office in collaboration with the Health Department detailing the next steps.

We understand the challenges that this may pose for parents, however, this is necessary to keep our students and staff safe and to mitigate the possible spread of COVID-19. Please ensure that your emergency contacts are up-to-date and carefully screen your students prior to sending to school to help us reduce the spread and lessen the chance that you will need to be called possibly leaving work to drive to pick up your child!

Our Mental and Emotional Health

Struggles are natural and can certainly be amplified during not only the holidays, but throw in a pandemic as well! How we work through these struggles is the important part.

You can find many resources on the Lapeer Community Mental Health page that can assist you or a loved one.

Title 1/31a Happenings

Professional Development for teachers and staff is based on needs that are identified using student and building data. It is aligned to meet the Michigan Integrated Continuous Improvement Process (MICIP) plan that the district has developed.

PD is provided to teachers at the district level and building level. To determine what PD is provided at the district level, a team of stakeholders (teachers, principals, and central office administrators) meet annually to look at data for the district and gather input on what kind of PD will best support the MICIP goals that have been determined for submission to the State.

In addition to the district level PD, buildings use their data to determine the focus for monthly PDs that align to the district MICIP goal and the Board Goals.
