Spring Testing

State and federal laws require schools to assess student learning every year in specific grade levels and subjects. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is not allowing for remote testing, therefore the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress (M-Step) must be rendered inside a school facility. This means that all assessments must be administered in person.

Food Service Details

The food service department will be transitioning to serving FREE meals to be eaten at school for in-person learning. They will only be sending bags home on prescheduled ½ day sessions moving forward, when students don’t have the opportunity to eat in school. All meals will continue to be FREE until the end of the 2020­‐21 school year,

Starting Tuesday, March 23, 2021, students will be offered meals during their scheduled lunch period at school to be eaten in the area designated for them by the school they attend. Each meal will be individually wrapped and then boxed.
