Good Afternoon Concord Middle School and High School Families, Concord Schools received grant funding to determine whether or not our community would benefit from our students having access to health care services here at school. An important part of the process is gathering information from our parents, students, staff, and community members. Attached you will find a letter that explains the grant process and provides digital access to a parent questionnaire. We would greatly appreciate your feedback. If at all possible, please read the letter and complete the questionnaire by Wednesday, May 10th. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. We would also like to administer a survey to our 6th-8th grade students as well as our 9th-12th grade students to gather feedback from them regarding if they believe they would benefit from having access to a School Wellness Program. Attached you will find a letter that serves as notification to our families that we plan to administer the survey on May 10th, 2023. Due to the fact, the survey is asking about physical and mental health we want to provide our parents the opportunity to preview the surveys and opt out their students. You will find the notification letter and PDF versions of the student survey attached. If you would like to opt out your student from the survey, please let Mike Arbuckle or myself know by Tuesday, May 9th, 2023.

Dear Parents, Today in our K-12 buildings we completed our second emergency lockdown drill. The State of Michigan requires schools to complete three lockdown, tornado, and fire drills per year. This was a scheduled drill and was not connected to the false reports several school districts received yesterday. The county sheriff assisted us in the drills. There was no threat in any building today. The intent of the drill is to make sure we can keep all of our students safe in the case of an emergency. If you have any questions about today’s drill, please call the office. #ONEHIVE Becky Hutchinson, Superintendent Concord Community Schools Office 517-524-8850
