A Message from Our Principals

With the month of September behind us, we have established routines and protocols in this new environment. Thanks for all of your support to start strong.

As we are hitting our stride, it’s time to consider the multiple ways to learn about your child’s education. At the bottom of this newsletter, you will find agendas for each of your child’s classes, which will also link to other resources. You also have access to Infinite Campus, which will show you the assessment scores so far. We encourage you to contact teachers anytime you have a concern, as well. In addition, on October 14 and 15, we will be offering an opportunity to talk about your child’s learning with your child’s teachers. Because of the many ways that you may already be engaged in your child’s learning, please do not feel obligated to sign up for a conference. In order to support our “Stay Safe to Stay Open” work, we will be conducting conferences virtually. For more information, see the News and Announcements section of the newsletter.

Thanks for your partnership in your child’s learning, whether it’s by following agendas, checking on Infinite Campus, contacting teachers, or family conversations about learning around the dinner table.

Your principals,

Linda O’Bryan and John McEwing

Being Prepared for Cooler Weather

Fall is just around the corner and the colder weather is approaching fast. Due to our current situation, we are using our outdoor facilities as much as possible. Please make sure your child is prepared with a sweatshirt, jacket, pants and maybe a blanket (if allowed by teacher). Your child can check with their teacher on any other materials they should bring to be prepared.

Ski Club Sign Up

Ski Club and Ride Sign Up:

  • Pick up registration papers in Student Services October 5th-9th.
  • Turn in completed registration materials and fees in an envelope to student services on October 12th-16th.

Infinite Campus Attendance Messaging

At the beginning of each month, you will receive an email from Infinite Campus detailing your student’s attendance for the current school year. All families will be receiving this email even if their child has not been absent from school. This email is intended to be a communication between school and home. If you have any questions or extenuating circumstances that impact your child’s attendance, please contact Amanda Rosman, School Social Worker at amanda.rosman@muskegonorway.org or 414-524-9117.

Appointments/Early Pick-ups for Students

Students who need to leave school during the school day must have written parental permission. Please have your student drop off the written excuse at the Student Services window first thing in the morning. By late morning, your child should stop back and a pass will be on the window ready for them. With this pass, the student can leave the classroom at the time they are to be picked up, and the office staff can avoid interrupting learning by calling into the rooms. Please do not email teachers with attendance. All attendance goes through Student Services.
