2018/2019 School Year

Welcome to the North Dickinson County School web-page. It is my sincere hope that students will have a successful and rewarding school experience. The community, staff and Board of Education has provided our students with many opportunities to grow accademically, socially, and physically. Our school staff is made up of many caring and dedicated people who will work very hard to give the best educational experience possible. In return, we ask our students to put forth their best effort in all of their classes and get involved in school activities.

If there is any way I can help you during the school year, please be sure to ask; my door is always open.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Angel R. Inglese
Superintedent/Principal

Michigan Tech Summer Youth Program Donations Needed

Every summer kids grades 6-11 have the opportunity to attend Michigan Tech’s Summer Youth Program. They offer a variety of weeklong courses from June through August. The base cost to attend is $950 per student. In prior years we have been fortunate to have scholarships available to all students wanting to attend. Unfortunately, the scholarships have ended and we are now looking for donations to be able to help students who are wanting to attend this beneficial academic program. If you would like to make a donation please drop off or mail to the school at W6588 State Hwy M69, Felch, MI 49831, with a note indicating it is for the Michigan Tech Summer Youth Program.

NO Breakfast Days

Just a reminder that there is no breakfast served on days that there are 2 hour delays. Please make sure your child eats before coming to school on these days.

The yearbook early bird special is coming to an end. January 15th will be the last day that you can buy your 2018– 2019 yearbook for $25.00. For the best prices don’t delay. After January 15th the price will be $30.00, after May 1st the price will be $40.00.

Pay to Participate Fees

Pay to participate fees for high school basketball, as well as junior high boys’ basketball are now due. The $40 fee must be paid in the school office before the first game. This fee is required for each sport/activity in which a student participates.

Notification of Absence

If a student is going to be absent, the parents must contact the school at (906) 542-9281 by 9:00 a.m. and provide an explanation. If prior contact is not possible, the parents should provide a written excuse as soon as possible. “Michigan law requires that schools report the possible occurrence of communicable disease to the local health department. To assist in this reporting, please include the illness (if known) and who diagnosed it OR a detailed description of symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, rash, or sore throat when reporting your child’s absence.” When no excuse is provided, the absence will be unexcused and the student will be considered truant. If the absence of a student appears to be questionable or excessive, the school staff will try to help the student improve attendance.
An excused absence allows the student to make up all possible work. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain missed assignments. It is possible that certain kinds of schoolwork such as labs or skill-practice sessions cannot be made up and, as a result, may negatively impact a student's grade.
If the absence is unexcused or unauthorized by the Principal, a student will not be given the opportunity to make up the work.
The skipping of classes or any part of the school day is considered an unexcused absence and no make-up of class work will be permitted.

Attention Parents

Students are not allowed to be in the building unattended. Many students have been staying after school for late practice. Students that intend to stay after school either for late practice, to play sports, or watch an athletic event, need to have pre-arranged adult supervision or be in student lounge on days it is open. Unattended students will be asked to leave the premises.
