Internet Safety

Are your children safe while online? Michigan families, especially minors, are becoming inundated with advertisements from alcohol, tobacco, pornography and gambling marketers through different internet and cell phone inboxes. Texting their advertisements is the newest marketing effort that many of these companies are using. Thankfully, the State of Michigan offers a free program to stop adult advertisements from reaching e-mails, mobile phones (text messaging ads) and instant messenger IDs. The Michigan Child Protection Registry, like the federal Do Not Call List, is a free do-not-contact service for Michigan’s families and can be located at

As a strong supporter of this registry, I would like to encourage you to sign your entire family up for the registry and inform your friends and colleagues about how they can protect children and families from unwanted adult advertising. To sign up only takes seconds. Just go to and keep your family safe.

Reminder - Photo ID is required for Student Pick Up

When any adult is picking up a student during the school day, we do require that you enter the building and provide a Photo ID upon pick up. Adults must also be listed as a Contact for a child when being picked up as well. Our first priority is always student safety, thank you for helping keep your child safe.

Cell Phone Use Reminder

Just a reminder that students are only allowed to use their cell phones during their lunch period during the school day. Anytime outside of lunch, students should have their phones powered off and in their backpack or locker.

Parents - if you need to contact your child, we are happy to get a message to them. Please don't text your child during the school day.
