A Message from Walled Lake Schools

As you know by now, Governor Whitmer has suspended in-person K-12 instruction (Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order) for the remainder of the school year.

Although our children will not be going back to our school buildings, we remain committed to ensuring that our students continue to receive an education. Likewise, we remain committed to ensuring that our high school seniors graduate and are appropriately honored.

Undoubtedly, there remain many unanswered questions. We do not have all of the answers yet; however, we will be working and planning to get you answers in the near future, after Spring Break, April 6-10.

Here is what we do know:

  • We are committed to providing the best support possible for our students, academically, socially and emotionally, albeit virtually.

  • We will continue to provide virtual instruction. Although the vast majority of our students are online participating in virtual classrooms, we will continue to reach out to families who have not yet engaged in these opportunities.

  • We are positioned to push the envelope creatively and reach out to our students and families to celebrate student achievements in new ways. We want to create memories and provide unique opportunities for students to celebrate the relationships they treasure, and their many accomplishments.

  • We are examining safe options for high school graduation, although no specific plans have been made yet. Further, individual middle school and elementary school communities will also collaborate to acknowledge and celebrate student accomplishments.

Virtual Learning Will continue Monday, April 13th

We will continue virtual learning and use the many technological tools we have to continue to forge critical connections among students, staff, parents and the community. We are aware that many families are trying to balance having several children using one device and ensuring that they are participating in Zoom meetings, classroom assignments, and much more.

Please take time to disconnect from your Google Classroom and any other virtual learning during Spring Break. This will be a good time to be creative, read, and try out some of the activities below. On behalf of the all the elementary schools, we are wishing you a peaceful Spring Break.

PTA Virtual Meeting, Wednesday, April 15 7:00 pm

Information regarding to to attend the meeting will be coming soon!

PTA Elections for the 2020-2021

PTA Board member positions will be voted on at the April online meeting. We are looking for OPE parent volunteers to fill these roles for the upcoming school year.

Board positions do require more of a commitment and include additional meeting time each month. However, our board is very flexible and accommodating to members schedules and needs. It is a great way to become more involved at OPE. We would love to have you join us in serving our awesome school community!

Take a look at the attached descriptions of each opening, then email Sarah Garrison if you are interested, or with any questions. sjgarrison13@gmail.com
