Homecoming 2020

Despite COVID restrictions, we had a terrific Homecoming! Congratulations to our Homecoming Court!

Our football team played a great, competitive game against Deckerville. We are looking forward to the playoffs!

Go Wolves!

Thank You For All of Your Help Keeping Genesee Healthy!

We have been extremely fortunate with our low number of COVID cases and quarantined students! I hope that our trend continues despite increased COVID cases across the county.

Please don't let down your guard and continue to practice healthy habits and wearing of masks. The more all of us do, the better outlook we have to remain open to our students.

Thank you, Genesee!

How Are Your Children's Grades?

The Marking Period Ends November 6, 2020

Many students in grades 7-12 are not keeping up with their online coursework. On days in which students work from home, they should be spending about six hours a day on their courses.

Parents of students in grades 7-12, please take a look at the weekly progress reports emailed to you and notice the percentage of completion in the courses.

Students should have around 40% of their first semester course completed at this time. If they are not at 40%, encourage your child to get caught up and soon.

We want all of our students to be successful and look forward to seeing fully online students Zoom on Fridays.

Need assistance? Please contact your child's teacher or the main office.

Thank you!
