        • Just a reminder that our building opens for middle school students at 7:15 a.m. and closes at 2:42 p.m. As part of our district's policy, students not picked up by a parent or guardian before 3:15 p.m. will be taken to Tween Time and charged the appropriate fees.

        • Orchard Lake Middle School makes use of the HERO system for tracking minor violations of the the WBSD Attendance Policy and Code of Conduct. These infractions include: tardiness, electronics, unauthorized areas of school, hallway disruption, and dress code. If your student is in violation of one of these policies, you will receive an automatically generated email notification from HERO that explains the violation and consequences. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Stasi Mortimore at stasi.mortimore@wbsd.org
