Student Vaccinations

We need all of our students up to date on their vaccination status by October 25, 2021 as required by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.  If your child is not up to date, you will be receiving a letter and a consent form to be completed and returned if you would like our onsite Beaumont Clinic to give your student their necessary vaccine(s) during the school day.  You may also elect to take your child to his or her doctor for this.

Thank you for protecting our school community!

TikTok Challenges

As you may be aware, over the past several weeks, a variety of TikTok challenges have led to issues in our schools – from disruption of learning to damage to school property. Social media offers a lot of positives, including allowing Adams Middle School families to increase their engagement and involvement in their children’s education experience and enabling the Wayne-Westland Community School District to celebrate our students, families, teachers and staff. Unfortunately, social media also presents a variety of problems, such as those we’ve seen recently as a result of these TikTok challenges. While we want learning and school to be fun for our students, we cannot allow activities that cause damage to school property or impede instruction and thus impact student academic, social or emotional growth.

Make no mistake, damage to school property is an act of vandalism and it will not be tolerated. Additionally, activities that disrupt learning will result in disciplinary action that may result in suspension or expulsion from school. Therefore, I’m writing to you today to urge you to sit down with your child and talk to them about the impact of these TikTok challenges on our school community and their academic future. At Wayne-Westland Community Schools, we take pride in the good citizenship of our students, teaching them to be respectful of each other and their environment. We value the ability of our students to be leaders, and we need them to step up here and do what is right for the entire school community.

In our ongoing commitment to the safety and well-being of our students, we must address this matter before it escalates and puts our students in harm’s way. Please speak to your child(ren) and remind them to be responsible, respectful and safe. Also, encourage them to report advance knowledge of any TikTok challenges so we can prevent them. Our school district has always stressed kindness, compassion and good citizenship, and we remain committed to creating a safe and respectful school community that maximizes student performance. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support on this matter and for serving as our partner in your child’s education.
