Picking Up Speed

Here we go families. We just ended our third week and are headed into our first full week of school. Students are beginning to get into the routine of school, homework, athletics and after school activities. As life continues to grow in business, remember to take time to breathe. Our world can be so stressful and adding things to the mix can put us on edge. Remember to breathe, talk to God in prayer and ask Him to lead you. God will provide, we just have to ask and welcome Him into our lives.

Date Change

We were in need of changing the date for our annual Thanksgiving Feast. It is now scheduled to be on Tuesday, November 23, 2021. This will be the last day of school before our Thanksgiving Break. We always need lots of volunteers to make this feast a success. Please mark your calendars and consider volunteering! More information will be sent home at the end of October.

Hot Lunch

Students should not bring money into school for lunch or milk. Please use your FACTS account to prepay for your child's milk or hot lunch. Thank you

Illness Policy

We still need all parents to screen their child(ren) before they get on the bus or leave for school. Please ensure that your child(ren) do not have a temperature or have any signs of illness, Flu or COVID-19. We are no longer taking temperatures at the door so we need all parents to ensure your children have no symptoms before leaving home.

If your child is home or sent home due to an illness, they must stay home until they are symptom/fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. Any child home due to COVID-19 must follow the Barry/Eaton County Health Departments guidance before returning to school.

Everyone was so wonderful at this last year, it really saved us from having groups of children contracting any illness almost the entire year last year. Thank you for continuing this much needed protocol.

End of the Day Routine

The end of the day can be very hectic as we do our best to ensure students get to where they need to be; child care, carline, bus or other special events. Please let the office know if your child's afternoon transportation shifts from their normal routine. Thank you!
