Important Reminders

  1. Parents, please make sure we have your current email address and phone number for ROBO calls and Crusader News emails.
  2. Attendance Line: If your child is absent, it is your responsibility to call and report their absence. Call your attendance line 586-533-3601.
  3. Phones: No cell phones are allowed. Students should not use the main office as a method for arranging regular phone calls home. If parents need to pick-up students from school, the parent/guardian must enter the building and show ID.
  4. Help us keep our bus lanes clear. Please refrain from picking up students during the last 15 minutes of the school day.
  5. Locker Protocols for 22-23: Please click the link for guidelines for locker use and help with opening combination locks.
  6. Students ARE required to wear ID at all times. If students do not report with ID, they will receive a temporary ID for the first offense. Each additional offense will result in point accumulation that could lead to a lunch detention. If a student never received an ID, see Mr. Kaminski in the media center. Please see page 11 of the Student Handbook for the policy on IDs.

EMS is a Hat and Hood Free Zone

We want our students to stay safe. Hats and hoods often prove to be barriers to safety. Beginning Monday, September 12th, our school community will enforce our school policy of NOT allowing hats/hoods to be worn indoors. Parents, we need your help. Please remind your students and please reinforce that there will be consequences for not following school policy.
