A Message from Mrs. Caudill


Dear Bobcat Families,


It was really the most amazing first week of school. This has been the best start to the school-year in I can"t tell you how long. We laughed, we learned, we developed a community - we experienced joy. Thank you for sharing your children with us this week.


As much fun as they had this week, I am sure they will be tired (I know I am). Please take some time to rest this weekend. We have five days of fun waiting for us next week.


Stay well,

Devon Caudill

Using the Loop (Car Drop-off)


For anyone who might be using the loop for the first time, here are a few tips to follow:


  • Be sure that your child/ren knows to meet you at the Loop.

  • Display your name card in an upright position until your child/ren are safely in your car. (We need to know your names to call for students and to help our rotating teachers get the right student to the right car.)

  • Display your name BOLDLY! (Whether cloudy or sunny, it is easier to read the name when it is BIG and BOLD)

  • Keep your car in park until your child/ren are safely in your car.

  • Stay in your car while the Loop is open. (Our teachers and staff need to stay focused on the vehicles and students. Please do not walk up to teachers and staff in the Loop. It is safer for you to go to the office for assistance.)

  • The dismissal loop will be closed at 3:55, if you have not entered the loop by 3:55 and the gym doors are closed you will have to come to the office to collect your child/ren.

  • We know the beginning of year adds to longer loop lines - we will be flexible in the loop closure the first week of school.

Here are a few other reminders to help us keep the loop moving:


  • Form TWO lanes as you enter the parking lot, to keep cars off 8 Mile Rd.
  • MERGE alternating lanes when you approach unloading/loading zone.
  • Pull ALL THE WAY forward to the farthest available volunteer.
  • Try to stay BUMPER TO BUMPER in the loop, don’t leave space between cars

Annual Online Information Confirmation

Every year, all families (including those who recently enrolled) are required to fill out the digital Annual Registration for each student. Families may complete these forms through MiStar ParentConnection. Through this process you will be asked to update your student’s emergency contact information, home address and health information, review our technology use policy and student handbooks, learn more about PTSA/PTA, access the web store and much more.


This process needs to be completed on a desktop or laptop computer, unless you download the MiStar App available in the App Store.


ANNUAL REGISTRATION MUST BE COMPLETED BY ALL FAMILIES

PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL

Infectious Disease Response to COVID 2022-23


Students and staff that contract COVID should follow the Health Department recommendations and isolate for five days from the date where symptoms were present or from the date of their positive rapid or PCR test. Isolation includes waiting to return to school until the isolation period has ended. It is also recommended that students or staff should wear a mask for 5 days past their isolation period. See MDHHS Graphic below.


Parents should notify their child’s school of the absence reason so that teachers are aware of the student's absence period and our nurses can follow the health department’s infectious disease requirements. NPS School Nurses are available should you have any questions.

The system will not allow you to order after the time listed above. For your convenience, meals can be preordered up to 30 days in advance.
