Internet Safety

Are your children safe while online? Michigan families, especially minors, are becoming inundated with advertisements from alcohol, tobacco, pornography and gambling marketers through different internet and cell phone inboxes. Texting their advertisements is the newest marketing effort that many of these companies are using. Thankfully, the State of Michigan offers a free program to stop adult advertisements from reaching e-mails, mobile phones (text messaging ads) and instant messenger IDs. The Michigan Child Protection Registry, like the federal Do Not Call List, is a free do-not-contact service for Michigan’s families and can be located at www.ProtectMIChild.com.

As a strong supporter of this registry, I would like to encourage you to sign your entire family up for the registry and inform your friends and colleagues about how they can protect children and families from unwanted adult advertising. To sign up only takes seconds. Just go to www.ProtectMIChild.com and keep your family safe.

PBIS - Chromebook Reward

On Thursday, March 25th students that have brought their Chromebook to school charged every day for 3rd marking period, were rewarded with an ice cream social. Coming to class with a Chromebook charged is as important as bringing your pencil and book. Students that are consistently prepared for class perform better in classes. Congratulations to all of our students that earned this reward! #CometPride

Reminder - Photo ID is required for Student Pick Up

When any adult is picking up a student during the school day, we do require that you enter the building and provide a Photo ID upon pick up. Adults must also be listed as a Contact for a child when being picked up as well. Our first priority is always student safety, thank you for helping keep your child safe.
