Dear Hayes Parents, 

Thank you for a great few days of parent/teacher conferences!  We hope that you were able to meet with your student’s teachers during a time that worked best for you and your family.  As you know, it takes a village to raise a child, so we greatly appreciate your support and time during conferences.  If you were not able to attend conferences, please feel free to reach out to your child’s teachers if you have any questions or concerns.

As we stated last week, the district’s third trimester plan will be presented to the Board of Education on Monday, March 22nd.  Once this plan is approved, we will communicate in immediate fashion with our parents.  So, please look for an email with a variety of resources regarding trimester three on Tuesday, March 23rd. 


Covid Hotline

The district has developed a “Covid Hotline” for parents to report confirmed Covid cases and exposure to confirmed Covid cases.  The Covid Hotline number is 517-925-5725.  Please use this hotline to report cases, and please also call our office at 517-925-5680. 


Picture Retakes

Picture retakes will be on Thursday, March 25 from 4:30-6:30pm.  If you missed the last school picture opportunity and/or would like to have your student’s picture retaken, then please feel free to take advantage of this opportunity.  We do understand that this date is not ideal, but please understand that we have to work around Geskus, our private party photographer, in scheduling these events.  If you would like to send a selfie of your student to appear in the yearbook in lieu of getting a school photograph, then please email that photo to Mrs. Jennie Hernandez at  Please note that not all selfies may make it into the yearbook due to resolution quality, and selfies will just be placed together without student names nearby. 



Registration is now open for the 2021 Spring Grand Ledge Lacrosse Season! Please click here for more information: Lacrosse.  The link provided has a plethora of information regarding upcoming clinics and registering for the season, grade 3-8.  



If you are interested in purchasing a yearbook for the 2020-2021 school year and did not order a picture packet, you may still purchase a yearbook for $8.00 online by using the following link to  You are not required to enter the PIN field, but you must enter any one of your student's teachers, as this is a required field. Please also note, that while Geskus has assured us that they will make every effort to get as many of the candid, and "selfie" pictures submitted from Hayes into this year's yearbook, for various reasons, and limited space, not all pictures submitted will be published.  


Teacher Assistants

Teacher Assistant jobs open district-wide--HIRING IMMEDIATELY! Starts at $10.75/hr. with step increases after the probationary period, paid time off, 10 days/year after probationary period, paid holidays. Please call Human Resources at 517-925-5406 or apply at


That is all the information that we have at this time.  Again, please be sure to keep an eye out for information about our trimester three plan early next week.  Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.  


Take care,
