There has been an important change to the 2015-2016 school calendar. As a result of a special presidential primary scheduled by the State of Michigan, there will be no school for K-12 students on Tuesday, March 8, 2016. It is anticipated that the primary will have a higher than normal expected voter turnout, and 9 of the district’s 12 schools serve as voting precincts. The Professional Development day originally scheduled for May 19, 2016 will now be a school day for students.

The health and safety of Anchor Bay School District students is always of vital importance. A particular concern is bacterial skin infections such as methicillin -resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). When parents report that their student has been diagnosed with such infections, the school district takes immediate action notifying the appropriate health officials, having the custodial staff follow health department guidelines to clean high-touch or soiled surfaces throughout the building and alerting staff and parents. Information on MRSA and other health issues is available on these websites: www.michigan.gov/mdch or www.reducemisuse.org. School administrators may be contacted with health concerns affecting their child in school. It is always a good ideal to encourage measures that reduce the spread of bacteria including good hand washing, not sharing personal items and keeping wounds covered. We encourage parents to reinforce these measures with their children at home.
