From the Superintendent...
Special Message from the Superintendent:
Since the U.S. Presidential election last week, there have been a number of reported incidents in Michigan schools of students harassing, bullying, intimidating, and using hateful speech toward other students.
I realize that certainly at the national level over the past year, we saw the debate go to a new low, and that is impacting the actions, demeanor, and mood in some of our schools.
Olivet Community Schools must be a safe haven for our children – free from hate; free from intimidation; free from bullying; and free from fear.
We will continue to develop in our students a steadfast respect for all others, inclusive of race, religion, orientation, or social-economic standing. We must not let political rhetoric and actions diminish the positive learning environments we’ve worked so hard to nourish.
I am asking staff at all levels, and all parents, to help our students to understand that bullying and intimidation – in word and action – is unacceptable and will have consequences.
