We strive to ensure safety in our school. Therefore, we conduct drills (Fire, Tornado, and Lockdown). Procedures are practiced throughout the school year at each campus. Below, is a list of drills that have been performed:
General Required Notices
We do not use any pesticides in or around the building. If we ever do, we will give written notification prior to any application to all parents and staff members of the pesticides to be used, its potential side effects, and where and when the pesticide(s) will be applied.
Our building was constructed in 1998-99, and the High School wing was completed in 2002. Statements from the contractors are on file attesting to the fact that no asbestos has been accepted by the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration and is kept on file in the school office.
All parents and guardians of students under 18 have the right pursuant to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 to examine the official records, files and data of the school district which pertain to their student. Procedures for examination and hearings to challenge anything in the record may be made available upon request.
