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.

Emergency Preparedness

Attached you will find a letter to parents summarizing the district's actions after a "perimeter lockdown" as suggested by local law enforcement officials. We want parents to know that are utmost importance is student safety and we must handle situations such as these with advice from expertly trained officials.

We have identified the high school principal, Tim Volovsek as our District Safety Committee chair and hope to be actively searching for ways to improve our schools.

Questions regarding the letter may be directed to the Superintendent's Office at 269-749-9129.
