From the Desk of Mr. Downey

Dear Parent or Guardian,

I’m very excited to write this letter to introduce myself as the new Principal of Turrill Elementary. My name is Robert Downey and I am looking forward to meeting both you and your child over the course of the upcoming school year.

I have over twenty years of experience in education as a teacher and administrator. For the past four years, I have served as the elementary Principal in Dryden where we have started many of the same initiatives currently in place at Turrill. However, I am looking forward to learning all about our school, the staff, students and your families. Lapeer has been a district of change and certainly moving in a positive direction and I look forward to collaborating with my new staff and families to continue improving our school for our students!

I will be working diligently to provide the students of Turrill opportunities to prepare them to be world class citizens of the 21st century with a solid foundation of academic and social skills developed here at our school. As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any suggestions or ideas you may have to help make this a great year or just to say "hi"!

As a reminder, the first day of school is Monday, August 1.

Again, I look forward to working with you and your child. Please stay tuned for more specific information regarding the start of the school year in mid-July.

Yours in Education,

Robert Downey

Insurance Questions?

Did you know....

The Health Plan Marketplace can be a daunting adventure for anyone who is looking to get health coverage. It is especially confusing now as Michigan has re-bid all of its Medicaid health plan providers statewide. This means that all families with children covered by Medicaid Health Plans will need to re-apply for their health coverage in the next few months!

Things to consider:

1. Is your current doctor part of the new plan

2. Is the hospital the one you want
