Local Educators Against Drugs
Maybe you've noticed a change in your child's school performance, or his appearance or choice of friends. Perhaps they are more withdrawn or depressed, no longer interested in favorite activities. Your child may even be more aggressive, hostile to you or other members of the family. While there certainly could be another explanation, these are some of the same characteristics which often indicate drug or alcohol use. Call the parent help line at 1-800-284-5444.

New procedure for ensuring that credit recovery classes meet standards
With the new Michigan Merit Curriculum requirements and considering the multitude of summer opportunities to take classes, it is important that any credit recovery classes enrolled in must meet Michigan Department of Education standards to allow for credit recovery. If you are in need of recovering credits and want to avoid any wasted credits, time, and money follow the steps below:
1. Meet with Ms. Sitarz to determine if credit recovery is necessary.
2. If you have determined that credit recovery classes are needed, fill out a Credit Recovery Authorization Form and turn it in to Mr. Thompson where it will be evaluated to be sure the desired class meets standards.
3. The class will be authorized (with signature) to replace the failed Grass Lake class and the completed, signed form will be returned to the student or parent.
4. The parent or the student is then responsible for returning the completed form to Mr. Thompson signed by the authorizing personnel giving the final grade for the class
