Marlette Elementary News
From the Principal's Desk
Wow! Can you believe we've already made it to December? This year has been far from usual, but we do want to keep some of our holiday magic alive. Rodney Raider, the MES elf on a shelf, has returned for some fun and scouting for Santa. Be sure to ask your child where Rodney was at every day. As of today, Monday, December 7, there are only eighteen sleeps until Christmas! Please pay extra close attention to your teacher's newsletter for important upcoming dates.
We will be back for in-person instruction Wednesday, December 9. We thank you all for working with us and being our partners as we navigate a fully virtual pause for a week and a half.
Please make sure you call the office and notify Mrs. Redman by Friday, December 11, if you would like to enroll or re-enroll your child for Marlette Community Virtual School for the second semester. 989-635-7427
Our Christmas vacation begins at 3:00 on Tuesday, December 22. We return in 2021 on Monday, January 4.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
If you need to contact me for anything, my office phone number is 989-635-4925, Google Voice number is 989-272-3718, and email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you all so much for trusting us with your children! We really can't thank our families enough for all of your help and support this school year. We appreciate you!
From the School Social Worker
As the holiday season rolls around again this year, I continue to be amazed by the generosity of our community to reach out and provide our students and families with extra support, especially during this year of uncertainty. With support of Marlette Knights of Columbus, MHS Class of 2008, and some anonymous donors, we were able to provide eleven full meals to local families for Thanksgiving. Other families have reached out to offer donations or the willingness to adopt families for the holiday season as well. We also continue to coordinate with Toys For Tots and are collecting new and unwrapped items here at the school. All these acts of kindness and selflessness do not go unnoticed and we are truly blessed to have such strong community support. If you are interested in donating /adopting a family or if your family could use some additional support this holiday season, please contact me at 989.635.7425 ext. 44924.

Breakfast and Lunch
Due to special funding from the USDA, all student meals are free through the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
However, if your family income should change, please complete a new free and reduced meal application. Families will begin the 2021-2022 school year with the meal status they ended the 2020-2021 school year with. This will remain in effect for 30 days or until a new form has been submitted. Forms are available in the school offices or online via Skyward.
If you have questions, please contact Tammy Major at 989-635-7425, ext. 44902.
School Calendar and Hours

If you don't receive an all-call on a snow day, it's because we don't have the correct number in Skyward. Be sure your information is up to date. https://skyhost1.tuscolaisd.org/scripts/wsisa.dll/WService=MARwsEAplus/seplog01.w
