Next Week's Calendar

This week at Larson...

8th Grade Greenfield Village Trip

8th grade student enjoyed visiting Greenfield Village earlier today. Thanks to our many parent chaperones for assisting!

Student Contact Verification -- Monday!

As our migration to PowerSchool continues, we have experienced some challenges in getting complete contact information uploaded for all students. For this reason, we plan to send a verification form home with your student on Monday. Please review the information we have on file which will be reflected in the form. If it is not complete, add the necessary information and return it with your student on Tuesday. I will send a separate message on Monday but wanted you to know in advance.

A.L.I.C.E. Parent Meetings

The Troy School District is implementing the A.L.I.C.E. protocol during the 2018-19 school year. A.L.I.C.E. takes a more proactive approach in the event of a serious emergency/crisis. These protocols will eventually replace "Code Red" lockdown drills that have been conducted for many years. All district employees have started training and this training will continue during the school year.

There are two remaining A.L.I.C.E. parent meetings. You can attend the session that is most convenient for your schedule.

Wednesday, October 10th at 7:00pm – Baker Middle School

Thursday, October 11th at 7:00pm – Larson Middle School

Parent/Teacher Conference Info Coming Soon!
