The State Superintendent has released a Parent Letter regarding spring testing. Please note, all virtual learners must come into the school for testing.

Tutoring - Tutoring is offered after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-5pm. Mr. Erickson and Ms. Nelson are available for high school students. Ms. Birk (room 208) is available for middle school students. 

Student Staying After School - Just a reminder that students should not be staying after school unless they are participating in an activity that is supervised by an adult (practice, tutoring, club meeting, etc.). 

Virtual Learning for 22/23 - If you are interested in virtual learning for the 22/23 school year, you can complete a Virtual Learning Application and return it to the office.

Behavioral Health Support - We are very lucky to have multiple counselors on site to help students who need support. If your child is struggling and you would like more information, please contact the school. We will send home a Behavioral Health Referral to get the process started.

ParentVue - ParentVUE allows parents and guardians access to their child’s assignments, grades, attendance, teacher emails, and more. If you don’t have access to your ParentVUE account, please email Shawna Boyd (boyds@alconaschools.net) or call the office (989)736-8534. There is also a ParentVUE app for smartphones.
