The 2019-2020 school year is off to a great start. It is hard to believe that we are 7 weeks into the school year all ready. Next week we will hold our fall conferences on Wednesday October, 23rd from 4:30 - 7:30 and Thursday October 24th from 12:00 - 3:00 and 4:00 - 7:00. In an effort to reduce wait times for teachers we are going to schedule our conferences this year. You will be able to choose the core content teachers you would like to see and then sign up for a specific time to meet with that teacher. Our electives teachers, (gym, art, FFA, Project Lead the Way, band and choir) will continue to have drop in conferences. You can stop in to see electives teachers in between your scheduled conferences.
To sign up for specific times, visit this website.
When you visit this website, it will ask you to choose the teachers you would like to see and will then send you a link to view their schedule. You can pick the time that is most convenient for you for each teacher you would like to visit. The site will give you a list of your conferences times for your records. We have tried a demo of the site and found the process to sign up for conferences to be easy and quick. If you should need assistance in this process please call the office at 231-894-5617.
We look forward to seeing all of you next week!

POWER SCHOOL ATTENDANCE PROTOCOL
If your child is absent from school and you have called in their absence, please allow 24- 48 hours for attendance to be reconciled. We have quite a few students coming and going throughout the day. This allows for all the changes throughout the day to be made and recorded properly. Also a Dr's excuse is given only when the student brings in the note from the physician, dentists, etc.
7th GRADE IMMUNIZATIONS
All 7th-grade students will need a copy of their OFFICIAL immunization record to start 7th grade. All immunizations or waivers must be up to date and on file before the first day of school. Immunizations can be up to date today but after a birthday they could be incomplete and need to be updated again. Please make sure that when you check with your doctor that they will be complete and up to date as of September 1st! IF YOUR CHILDS IMMUNIZATIONS ARE NOT UP TO DATE, THEY MAY NOT ATTEND SCHOOL. YOU MUST CONTACT THE MUSKEGON COUNTY HEALTH DEPT. TO OBTAIN A WAIVER TO BE ALLOWED WITHOUT IMMUNIZATIONS.
