  • When an adult (other than the parent) that is listed on a student's Emergency Contact/Medical page in PowerSchool comes in to pick up a student and take them out of the building, the following procedure must be followed:
     
    1.  the parent(s) must be called before the student can leave; mom and/or dad need to give approval for the student to be taken by anyone other than the parents
     
    2.  if neither mom nor dad can be reached for approval, the student must leave a message with one or both parents

  • When a student is leaving school early for any reason, a parent/guardian must give permission every time.  So, when a student is being signed out by anyone other than the parent/guardian or someone on the emergency contacts list, the parent/guardian needs to send in a note ahead of time or call the Guidance Office at 734-439-5209 to let them know that someone else is picking their student up and that they have permission to do so.  This will confirm that the parent/guardian is aware of the situation and will allow for pick-ups from grandparents, siblings or others to help parents out in unique or sudden situations.

  • Science

     

    5/21

      

     

    In science we are about half way through the last part of our Dynamic Earth Unit. So far in this unit we have learned about weathering/erosion/deposition and the rock cycle. We are now learning about plate tectonics. We discussed Alfred Wegener and how his theory of continental drift was rejected by scientists in the early 1900's, and how it was Harry Hess' work mapping the ocean floor in the 1950's that gave Wegener's theory the missing evidence it needed to be accepted. (There are several entertaining music videos about this story we have been watching in class. Ask your student about them. :P)

     

    Grades in Powerschool are currently up to date including missing assignments.
