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.

Peer Mediation is a conflict resolution program in which trained student mediators help peers resolve interpersonal conflicts. Peer Mediation is voluntary, confidential and proven to be one of the most effective approaches to solving student disputes. It is monitored by a counselor or social worker. Students needing peer mediation may sign up in the counseling office.
There is a confidential phone line that is monitored in the counseling office to report incidences of student to student bullying that is happening in school. That number is (586) 648-2500 ext. 2121
