We experienced a slight interruption in our testing last Wednesday due to internet connectivity issues. Our teachers made a few adjustments to their daily schedules and were able to stay on track with our testing schedule but this did result in testing on Friday.
Thank you for continuing to avoid scheduling appointments or vacations during our testing windows. Absent students will be required to take make-up tests on alternate dates, missing classroom instruction. We appreciate your support.
Optional COVID testing now available at the ESC
The District is now offering optional COVID testing to our staff, students, and parents. Both Rapid and PCR tests are available. The testing will take place at the Educational Services Center (850 Ladd Road, Building D Walled Lake, MI 48390) on Tuesdays and Fridays from 2-7 p.m.
The COVID testing staff, provided by a third party, will be responsible for letting people in the side door on the south side of the building.
· If you have insurance, your insurance provider will be billed.
· If you do not have insurance, there is a cost of $110.00 for a PCR test and $50.00 for a rapid test - This comes as a result of the Federal Government no longer providing funding for testing.
There will be signage placed both inside and outside of the building. To set up an appointment for testing, please complete this requisition form.
Placement for the 2022-2023 School Year
While it is never appropriate to request a specific teacher, if there is important information you wish to convey regarding your child’s learning needs, I welcome you to submit the Google form linked below by Monday, May 2nd.
I understand that this is a sensitive issue. In fairness to all children and staff members, please trust in us to handle placement with the care and sensitivity that is necessary for these important decisions.
Please plan to join us this week in the OPE media center for a chance to chat with current board members and find out what really goes into a leadership position.
If a committee role looks interesting to you, but you are worried about the time commitment, this is the perfect chance for you to get the ‘real deal’.
There are 2 more opportunities to drop in:
- Tuesday, April 26 from 4:15-5:00
- Thursday, April 28 from 6:30-7:00.
Staff appreciation week starts May 2! Watch for an email later this week with more details on how you can help us celebrate our wonderful Owl staff members!
Construction continues to move along! This week will be the final stages of the excavating and work then begin on the construction of the new gymnasium! Our staff has begun the packing process as our building must be completely packed and ready for movers by 4:00, Friday, June 10. Teaching and learning will continue as usual with teacher packing materials and items that are needed for the remainder of the school year.
