Congratulations to Jaidyn Klimp for qualifying for the MHSAA State Finals in the 400m run.
Please see the announcement regarding today's protest at the High School: Dear G-A Families, Earlier today, we worked with our students to engage in a peaceful protest regarding the non renewal of a teacher’s contract. We saw this as a teachable moment about civic engagement. We would like to commend the students who peacefully participated in the protest and then returned to class. Unfortunately, we had a number of students who chose not to return to class at the end of the allotted time. Their decision and their actions caused a disruption in the learning environment and created a significant safety concern. The school was put under a brief lockdown. The County Sheriff’s Department recommended we dismiss students in grades 8-12 early to diffuse the situation. Sheriff Deputies remained outside to monitor students who chose to remain outside and ensure their safety. There were no reported injuries. Sheriff's deputies will continue to be on-site Monday morning out of an abundance of caution. Crisis team members will also be on hand to offer support for students and staff who may need assistance processing this incident. Administrators will be following up with students who chose not to return to class, and they will face disciplinary action as outlined in the student handbook. We are optimistic that we can move forward from this incident as a school community and finish the school year on a positive note. Ms. Somers
