Week of February 24, 2020

We hope all of you were able to enjoy some time with your children over mid-winter break! Please take the time to review school expectations with your child before returning on Monday. The expectations can be found below.

School-wide Expectations

Staff Corner

Although I do not have pictures at this time, we are pleased to announce that we are adding two counselors to the Adams Staff!  Eileen Horgan comes to us from Franklin, and Stacy Brooks joins us from Redford Union.

The hiring of these two ladies at this time in the year is to provide scheduling support as we gear up to transition to a Middle School. In addition, they will begin building relationships with our students, and work in a capacity as we see fit to best suit the needs of our students preparing them for the transition to Middle School.

We are excited to have them as part of our team!

District Calendar Change

We want to announce a change to our calendar. There will be NO SCHOOL for K-6 grade students on Tuesday, March 10, 2020

This is due to the 2020 Presidential Primary Election. Because many of our schools serve as polling locations, having school in session on an election day can be disruptive to the school environment and inhibits our normal safety protocols. 

Recent legislative changes provide public school districts the option to use such days for professional development. 

Our middle and high schools will be in session and have a full day of instruction on March 10. 

Thank you for understanding!
