Late Start Wednesday FAQ

Preschool students will attend at their regular time as they do not have a late start.

Busses will run 1 hour and 25 minutes later than the regular school day.

Breakfast will be served at both at the elementary and junior-senior high school until classes begin at 9:30 a.m.

Busses will arrive at the junior-senior high school just after 9 a.m. and at the elementary at 9:15 a.m.

Both buildings will be open at 7:55 a.m. if students need to arrive earlier than 9:15 a.m. Remind your elementary child to use the main entrance off of M-22 and to check-in at the office if arrival is before 9:15 a.m. each Wednesday.

If you plan on dropping your elementary child off earlier than 9:15 a.m. please call the elementary office at 231-352-7601 to assure we have enough staff to supervise students that need care prior to 9:15 a.m.

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as this is our first Late Start Wednesday and with anything new, some adjustment to the times might need to take place. Please keep an eye on the district webpage for any updates.

SmartBoot System

Over the past year I have been working with the Lockout Company to help us enhance school security and safety for our students and staff. The SmartBoot System is now installed in both the elementary and high school buildings. The system was financed by a grant from the Michigan State Police.

The SmartBoot System will not become fully operational until staff receive more training and students have a solid understanding of operational procedures to follow if the SmartBoot System is activated. We will have more information coming out to you soon. Once again today was just an introductory for staff and students to see and hear how the system works.

In working with the Lockout Company, our goal is to have the system fully operational by October 1, 2019. Once again more information will be shared with all families in the near future.

Nut Free District

In order to protect our students with life-threatening allergies, FEAS has instituted a nut-resistant policy. Please refrain from bringing food products containing peanuts, tree nuts or tree oils in lunches or as snacks. If a product has been manufactured in a facility that handles nuts, but the product itself does not contain nuts, that product is acceptable to bring. Thank you for your help in providing a safe environment for our students.
