• Dear Marquette Parents/Guardians:

    We are quickly approaching the end of summer and it will soon be time to return to school. I hope that you had an opportunity to spend some quality time with your family and are ready for a productive school year. Covid-19 has affected everyone, if you need further assistance that we have not already identified, please let us know.

    We want to provide an environment that is conducive to teaching and learning and provides the best use of instructional time. With that in mind, we are asking that you will please observe the following policies and procedures for the 2021-2022 school year:

    The first day of school is Tuesday, September 7, 2021, buses will be operating(DPS Bus 313-945-8600), and homerooms will be assigned upon entry. School hours are 7:30a-2:40p. Parents of returning students must update contact information.
    All persons entering the building must wear a mask and answer Covid-19 screening questions. Social distancing protocol is in effect and hand sanitizer is provided.
    Send your child to school every day, on time.
    Make sure that your child is in uniform every day. Provide sweaters for cool days that are the color of their uniform shirt or blouse. The only other acceptable color for a sweater is black or white. HOODIES ARE NOT ALLOWED.
    Cell phones will have to be turned in at the entrance door and will be given back to students at dismissal. Students may use the office phone to call parents if necessary. Make sure your child knows your phone number and that you keep it up to date in the school records.
    Teachers are not available for conferences when students are entering the building. Conferences with teachers must be scheduled. There is a form in the main office to request a conference with your child’s teacher. You may not escort your child to their classroom unless your child is in pre-school. Parents will not be permitted to wait inside the school for students to be dismissed.
    Please allow your child to remain in school for the entire school day. Early dismissals disrupt the learning environment and cause your child to miss instruction. Please try to schedule appointments outside of school hours. If teachers have not acknowledged your request within 24 hours, please notify the main office. For early pick-ups, you must call ahead and arrive by 1:30pm
    When you visit the school, please be sure to check in at the main office (elementary bldg.) or at the security booth (middle School). Please do not go directly to your child’s classroom, office staff will assist you.
    We will not be able to transfer calls to teacher’s classrooms so that you can talk to your child. Please make sure to give your child instructions before they leave home.
    Because of Covid-19 we are limiting access to the building. Please limit visits to absolute essentials.

    Educationally,
    Deborah Sinclair, Principal
