If there will be a change to your child’s regular after school plan, this includes busing and parent pick-up, please write a note BEFORE he/she leaves for school in the morning to give to your child’s teacher.  This helps prevent transportation issues and children’s anxiety.  Your child’s teacher provides time in the morning to accommodate transportation changes.

We do realize that emergencies happen.  In an emergency, the parent or guardian will need to call the school secretary at (989) 984-2200 before 1:30 p.m. to notify us of the emergency and where the child will be dropped off for that day.
