Ovid-Elsie Middle School Families, Just a reminder that students are not to be dropped off before 7:15 a.m. per student handbook guidelines: BUILDING RULES & CARE OF SCHOOL PROPERTY 1. Students may enter the building after 7:15 a.m. If a student comes to school before 7:15 a.m., it must be for a school-supervised activity (band, chorus, extra help.) 4. All students not involved in a supervised school sponsored activity are to leave the building by 3:15 p.m. Once students are dismissed, they are not to return to the building. Only students who have valid reasons for returning may do so, and they must report to the office and receive clearance to re-enter the school. In accordance with the above guidelines, doors will remain locked until 7:15 a.m., beginning Monday, February 25th. While we would like to be accommodating and allow early drop off of students, it is our concern that dropping off students before adult supervision is in place could foster an unsafe environment. We appreciate your understanding regarding this matter and look forward to working with you to provide a safe and supervised educational environment for our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the middle school office at (989) 862-4238. If you would like to request bussing please contact Carla Perrien in the transportation department at (989) 834-2271 Ext.1560.

Witt Breaks All-Time Assist Record as OE wins 61-10 Senior Erin Witt will hoist her name on to the record board for the second time as her five assists broke the all-time record previously held by Kayla Galecka. Last year Witt broke the single-season record. "I'm so happy for Erin and so proud of her effort. She has put in so much work to get her to this point and her teammates were genuinely happy for her," Head Coach Ryan Cunningham said. "This was a nice team win where a lot of kids contributed tonight." Caitlyn Walter and Kylee Sevenski led the Lady Marauders (2-1, 1-0) with 12 points each while Lauren Barton added a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Witt also had 8 points and 9 rebounds to go along with her 5 assists. Kennedy Haynes, Josie Nash and Kierah Darling each added 4 points, Micayla Coleman 3 points, Madison Cunningham 2 points and Kylie Visger 1 to round out the scoring for OE. The Lady Marauders will host league foe and powerhouse Byron on Tuesday night.

Students have asked about wearing costumes for Halloween. Students will be allowed to wear a costume, but it must follow the school dress code in the handbook. Hats can be worn, as long as it is not covering the face, but no masks, no blood, and no weapons. If any part of your costume is in violation of the dress code, you will be asked to change. No exceptions. ​
