Snow Day Makeup Information - REVISED 4-13-18

LCS received an official communication from the Michigan Department of Education on April 13, 2018 regarding inclement weather make up days.


On behalf of all county school districts, the Lapeer County ISD filed a waiver requesting that additional days be forgiven, and today’s MDE communication formally approved that request.


Therefore, several of the previously identified inclement weather make up days will be adjusted as follows:


  • May 25, 2018 will be a non-attendance day for students and staff for both the traditional AND year round schedules
  • June 15, 2018 will be the last scheduled student attendance day for both the traditional AND year round schedules

#TurrillTough means...

...at Turrill we're not just building things. We want to work with our parents to build better people!! A Community of Success!


We think that each one of us is strong individually but we are even stronger when we work together.


There is an assembly on Friday, May 11th scheduled for each grade level in the afternoon. The purpose of the assembly is for our very own Mr. and Mrs. Smith (Resource Room and 1s grade teacher respectively) to present to the students the water filtration system that they will be helping to install in Haiti over our summer break.


The water filtration systems cost about $80 for one household and the group they are going down there with are installing them for families to have clean water for household use. One of our girl scout troops has already heard about their efforts and are planning a spirit week to raise money to purchase some water filtration systems.


The spirit week is planned for May 14-18 and will include activities like a mix and match day where students participating will bring in a quarter with all the proceeds being collected and donated by the Girl Scouts.


That's being Turrill Tough!!
