We have a Student Daily Planner and Student
Handbook. The handbook was designed to answer many common questions
asked by parents and students during the course of the school year.
Please read the handbook portion with your middle school student. If
you have questions feel free to call the middle school office at
The planner is provided to help
your child keep organized. It is recommended that parents ask daily to
see the planner and insist their child keep it up to date with their
assignments. To encourage the use of the planner, students are required
to carry it to every class. If your child would like to
leave class (bathroom, drink, etc.) there are Hall Passes in the book
that must be used.

ANNUAL END OF YEAR TRIPS
We have end of the year field trips as an incentive trip to reward good
behavior. The 8th graders will be working to attend Cedar
Point on an overnight trip at the end of the year. There will be
fundraisers during the year to help the students defer the cost of the
trip. Last year the 2-day/one-night trip was approximately $175. The
students and chaperones thought it was a great trip last year at a very
good price. Check the handbook for details.
The 7th grade trip is a day
trip to Michigan’s Adventure and the cost is approximately $35.
The 6th grade trip is also a
day trip. They rent AJ’s Adventure Land in Comstock Park for a day.
The cost of the 6th grade trip is approximately $25.
For the safety of our
students parents are required to
call the school @ 231- 832-6174 by 9:00 am if their child is
absent. If we do not receive a notification call by 9:00 am we will
contact parents by phone in an effort to promptly locate missing
students. Calls are usually made between 9:30 and 10:00 am. We must
avoid a situation where a parent thinks his/her student is in school,
the school thinks the student is at home, and the student is neither at
home nor at school.
us keep students safe parents must provide us with an updated phone
number for us to call if their child is absent without notification. We
do not have personnel to make multiple calls so parents must
provide us with one dependable phone number and keep it updated. If
the number provided is not a working number parents will not receive our
phone call. This could create a serious safety concern.
Current laws do not allow students to dispense their own medication.
If your child needs
to take any medication, prescription or over the counter medication,
during school, a medication form must be filled out. Prescription
medication forms must be signed by a physician; for over the counter
medication a physician signature is

MESSAGES TO YOUR CHILD

deliver messages. Please consider that if each child receives 3
messages per year that is 1,100 total messages and classroom
interruptions. We know there are times when you need us to deliver
messages. Please do your best to limit the number. REQUESTS MADE AFTER
2:00 MAY NOT BE DELIVERED SO PLEASE CALL BEFORE 2:00. Thank you for
helping, we appreciate it.
