Building Protocols

In recent weeks we have had an increase in the number of students that are staying after school. With this increase, we have also seen an increase in the amount of students that are wandering around the building with nothing to do, not attending the tutoring lab, waiting to be picked up, or waiting for their activities to start.


We will start closing the main hallway doors leading to the academic portion of the building daily at 4:00 pm. Students that are remaining after school for practices, classroom assistance with teachers, or waiting for a ride home will be required to remain in the cafeteria. In addition, they will be expected to wear a facial covering while they remain in the building. If your student does not need to stay after school, they are expected to leave the building at the conclusion of the school day. Your attention to these details is greatly appreciated, will help with the after school issues we have been dealing with, as well as allowing our custodial crew to ensure that they have the ability to properly clean our building.

Youth Entrepreneurship Opportunity

In conjunction with the Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD), I am requesting approval to initiate a Youth Entrepreneurship Club at Linden High School. This District-Sponsored club would be an after school club, facilitated by a professionally trained advisor provided through the GISD, would provide 9-12 grade students with the opportunity to experience exploring the entrepreneurial mindset and the small business environment.


Intended Outcomes for Participating Students

  • The development of a small business idea from conception to presentation.

  • The ability to compete against other Genesee County students.

  • The ability to secure scholarship monies for the students business plan and presentation of ideas.

  • The exposure to resources and support for product development.

  • The potential partnership with local community experts, businesses, and professionals.


School Climate Survey (Families): A Parent School Climate Survey

We want to hear about your experiences with your child’s education. It includes questions about your child’s learning, school safety, and interpersonal relationships, as well as your attitudes about the institutional environment and your personal involvement in school. Your responses will be very helpful in improving student relationships, learning conditions, and the overall school environment.

All your responses are completely anonymous. We have no way to connect you to your answers, and results will only be reported as group responses. There are no right or wrong answers. We just want to know about your personal experiences.

As you respond to each item, think about your own personal experiences as a parent or caregiver at your child’s school. Please answer all items, or your answers won't count. This survey should take approximately 10 minutes.

Thank you for your time and participation!
