The Troy School District is implementing A.L.I.C.E. training as a measure to counter an aggressive intruder or shooter event. A.L.I.C.E. takes a more pro-active approach in the event of a serious emergency. All employees have started training and this training will continue during the school year. We will also conduct informational parent meetings, which will be held at all four middle schools.
As part of our transition from our previous Student Information System to PowerSchool, we want to ensure that we have the most accurate emergency and health data for our students. To this end, we are implementing a Student Data Verification process. This will involve our hand-checking each student's key emergency and health information based on verification from the parents/guardians.
Schools will be printing pre-populated data verification forms on canary cardstock for each student this week. Your child(ren) will bring those forms home. We ask that you carefully review the information and mark-up the form and send it back to school, as soon as possible.
Those forms will be kept in the buildings for emergencies for the remainder of the year while we complete the process of hand-verifying (and in some cases, updating)
A child care program before and after school. C.A.R.E. is conveniently located in each elementary school. Preschool children attending at an elementary school program must be 4 years old to register for CARE.
Martell Elementary School’s Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) is where our parents and teachers come together with their time and talents to plan and host fun, memorable and educational events to enrich our students’ elementary school experience. We also exist as a liaison between our parents and teachers, as well as a support to our fine teaching staff.
