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 4, 2018 will be a non-attendance day for students and staff on the year round schedule (this remains a scheduled day for traditional calendar students and staff)
  • 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.

Did you know that over our Spring Break we had one of our Paraprofessionals and her family come out to pick up trash around the school? And they did it on their own?

And then our Girl Scouts did the same thing?

Not for the recognition but just to help our school community! But the wind keeps blowing more trash onto our school grounds...so...their efforts have inspired the next Earth Day clean up. See below for more information.

That's being Turrill Tough!!

Earth Day Turrill Elementary Clean up

Sunday, April 22nd, 9:30-11am

785 South Elm Street

Lapeer, MI

Come and help our continuing efforts to keep our school grounds clean!

You bring your gloves and helping spirit...we'll provide the garbage bags and water!



Just in Case you were Interested in how the Silly String thing went...

Our students earned this by successfully completing the #TurrillTough Challenge by reducing office referrals in February and March this year compared to last!
