Pesticide use

Advisory to Parents/Guardians Pesticide Use 

The Department of Agriculture and the State of Michigan have passed regulation 637 Pesticide Use. One of the requirements is that school districts provide notice to parents or guardians.

As a part of the Lake Orion Community School District’s pest management program, pesticides are occasionally applied. You have the right to be informed prior to any pesticide application made to the school grounds and buildings. In certain emergencies, pesticides may be applied without prior notice, but you will be provided notice following any such application. If you need prior notification, please mail your name, address, student’s name, city, zip code, phone number and the name of the school your student attends, to:

Releasing student information

Federal law provides for “public release without permission” of certain student directory information. Federal law also requires school districts to provide military recruiters, upon request, with students’ names, addresses, and telephone numbers, unless directed by a parent, guardian or eligible student not to disclose such information. Parents, guardians, or eligible students who do not wish any or all of the above items released must notify the Office of Superintendent.

Free and reduced lunch

The Lake Orion Community School District serves meals every school day. Students may be able to get meals free or at a reduced price. Applications are available at every building throughout the school year. All students are encouraged to complete an application to establish eligibility.

Many of the supplemental grants and aid our school district receives from the State of Michigan and the Federal Government are based on the total number of students eligible for free and reduced price meals. These funds enhance the educational opportunities of every student in our district.

Parents of students attending a school receiving Title I funds may request information regarding the professional qualifications of the student's classroom teacher(s).

Immunization requirements

The State of Michigan Department of Education now requires that Hepatitis B immunization is required for all kindergartners and any student new to the district, grades 1-12, in the 2000-2001 school year. As in the past, a parent/guardian must provide dates when the immunization for hepatitis was given; a physician signed statement that the child “is in the process” of completing the three vaccination series for Hepatitis B; or a signed waiver statement that for religious or other objections, the parent does not choose to have their child(ren) immunized against Hepatitis B. This information should be given to the school before a child is allowed to attend classes.

Public Act 89 of 2000 mandates that an immunization assessment be done on each sixth grade student beginning with the school year 2002-2003. This new set of laws that amend the School Code, the Public Health Code, and the annual School Aid Act was passed so that there would be a means of assuring that children are adequately immunized against preventable diseases before they reach adolescence when some of these diseases become a greater threat to their health.
