I was notified today that we had some issues regarding milk quality with our vendor Prairie Farms. Our kitchen staff has isolated the dates of the milk that have been impacted. The issue, we are told, is that the milk was not holding its shelf life and spoiling quicker than the date on the milk. Our kitchen staff is taking precautions with each crate to make sure we are having a quality product in front of kids. Prairie Farms has stated that they have rectified the situation and that there were no health risks involved. Please contact the office if you have any questions. Thank you. Len Morrow

Michael’s Place Grief Support Center out of Traverse City, will be here on Monday, March 19, 2018 beginning at 10:30 in the morning to conduct “debriefing” sessions with our 7th - 12th grade students so that these students have an opportunity to talk about how everyone is holding up, hear what others are feeling, and take the time to just be together. This will be a voluntary activity for the students and students from other grades MAY participate if they choose to. If you wish to have your student NOT participate in this activity next Monday, please phone the appropriate school office and opt the student OUT of the debriefing session. Please again take note that this will be completely VOLUNTARY, and no students will be forced to participate in any debriefing sessions if they choose not to attend.
This is an important message from Manton Consolidated Schools: Attached is digital copy of a letter that went home with each middle school student today regarding yesterday's tragedy. In addition, we included grief information and resources you may find helpful in supporting your child. We will continue to do all we can to support them at school as our community grieves and counselors will remain on site.
This is an important message from Manton Consolidated Schools. It has come to our attention that there are some concerns regarding the walkout protest which included roughly 20 students today. The school was not aware ahead of time that students had plans on protesting today. We have had students come and talk with the administration about participating in a protest on April 20th, not today. While the school does not encourage such activities, we respect that students do have rights to express their opinions in a peaceful and appropriate manner. The students who participated today were supervised to ensure their safety.
Manton Consolidated Schools conducted a lock down drill at approximately 2pm today as part of our state mandated drill schedule. Students and staff did an outstanding job!

Manton Consolidated Schools would like you to know that we went into secure mode this morning so that we could have trained drug dogs from local law enforcement agencies do a sweep of our school.

This is an important message from Manton Consolidated Schools. We have again analyzed our absentee rate today. Our percentages were better in the morning, but fell again in the afternoon. In light of the situation, Manton Consolidated Schools will be closed Friday, February 2nd, to allow for the weekend to hopefully break the cycle of sickness we are experiencing. Activities for tonight will go on as planned. The games for tomorrow night have been cancelled.
I apologize for this late message, but I have received several reports that a news article stated we were resuming school on Friday. That is an error. School does resume tomorrow morning. I am sorry for any confusion. - Len Morrow
The local health department has provided us a link for additional information regarding the flu. Please see https://www.cdc.gov/flu/resource-center/freeresources/print/print-schools-childcare.htm for details.
This is Len Morrow with an important message from Manton Consolidated Schools. Yesterday we heard of a number of students who had been diagnosed with influenza. Today we were able to look at our absentee rates and consulted with the health department and a pediatrician. Based on all of this information, we have made the decision to close school for the next two days, Tuesday the 30th and Wednesday the 31st. School will be dismissed today at its regular time. We will not have practices, or games for today, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Information regarding rescheduling of athletic events will be provided as soon as possible. Latchkey will run during its regular time today. We recommend keeping socialization to a minimum during this time. There will be no community access to the buildings or gyms during these days. Closing school is never taken lightly, but with the information we now have we feel it is the best one for our students. Thank you for your time.
This is an important message from Manton Consolidated Schools: It has been brought to my attention today that several students that attended Camp Rotary have been diagnosed with influenza. Please keep a watchful eye on your child for any flu like symptoms, including a cough/fever and take appropriate precautions. It is flu season and all parents, regardless of grade level, should stay vigilant in recognizing flu symptoms and seeking medical attention if necessary! The school will continue to monitor the situation, thank you.
