Friday, January 27, 2023. Baraga students 6-12 had the opportunity to hear how to achieve great things despite circumstances. Melvin Adams was an underdog who went on to become a professional basketball player. He told students to have dreams and to reach them. You should always aim for more! Special thanks to Baraga Community Foundation for making this happen.

January 13, 2023  Dear Baraga Families,   In an effort to remain as transparent as possible, we felt it necessary to inform you of an alleged incident that occurred at school on Wednesday, January 11, 2023. After our investigation, we do not feel that the school community was in any danger at any time.   When such a report is made, or an incident is made aware to school officials, we immediately begin investigating, implementing procedures to ensure the safety of the school community, and notifying authorities when needed. All threats are assessed in a timely manner and decisions regarding how to handle them are done as quickly as possible. Disciplinary and law enforcement action is taken, as appropriate. Our response to reports of violence focuses on ensuring students and staff are safe, assuring they feel safe, and also on creating the least disruption to the school routine as possible.     I know I speak for all of you when I say that acts or threats of violence in schools are never acceptable. We as a school, and a community, work hard to find ways to protect our children, to teach them how to be good citizens, and provide them a safe learning environment. We commend those students, staff, and families who share information with school leadership regarding potential threats and would like to remind everyone that in addition to reporting threats to school staff, everyone has access to the confidential reporting tool, OK2Say (https://ok2say.state.mi.us/).      We appreciate your willingness to continually trust us with your children. We make every effort to provide them with a safe and caring environment while at school.   If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the office.   Thank you,    Lori Wisniewski Superintendent Baraga Schools

Dear Baraga Families, This letter is to inform you of a serious issue that was brought to our district’s attention tonight. On Wednesday, January 11, 2023, Baraga Area Schools were alerted that a verbal threat of violence was allegedly made against the building. The police are involved and will continue to keep district staff informed of any new developments. At no time today was there any immediate danger to any student or staff member. Law enforcement personnel will be present in the building. The procedures we have in place ensure little disruption to students. We understand situations such as this are concerning to parents, students, and the greater community. We want you to be aware that we are taking steps to ensure a safe school day, including continued law enforcement involvement. The safety of our students, staff, and community is our highest priority.

Saturday, January 21st, from 9:00 a.m.—12:00 p.m. U-M Digital Wellness Youth and Parent Symposium | University of Michigan School of Education https://soe.umich.edu/events/u-m-digital-wellness-youth-and-parent-symposium-jan-2023 About this event from the U-Mich website: Middle school can be a time when kids are getting their first phones, texting, signing up for social media, and exploring the web on their own. Sometimes, online life is fun and rewarding, connecting us to our interests and the people we care about. At other times, it can feel overwhelming, addictive, or manipulative. The past two years have reminded us of how much we rely on our devices. We want kids to thrive when they are online, and we want parents and caregivers to have confidence and tools for supporting that journey. Please join us Saturday, January 21st, from 9:00 a.m.—12:00 p.m., for the U-M Digital Wellness Conference! We’re looking for two-person teams (middle schooler plus parent/caregiver) to join us on Zoom for a fun morning of learning, conversation, and activities about healthy online behaviors. There will be time for tween/teen-only activities with U-M students, time for adults to engage Q&A with the featured speaker, breaks to get up and move around and at-home conversation prompts or challenge activities to complete together. Our Keynote speaker will be an expert on digital wellness and health from CommonSense Media. Each family that participates will receive a Digital Wellness care package after the symposium which includes Raising Humans in a Digital World: Helping Kids Build a Healthy Relationship with Technology, as well as some fun University of Michigan swag! There is a small fee associated with participation ($15 per family). This fee helps to cover the cost of the symposium. However, we do not want the fee to deter anyone so we have a free option as well. Please choose the option that works best for your family. Should you register and be unable to attend, you will receive a full refund if you let us know no later than January 17th at 9:00 a.m. U-M Digital Wellness Youth and Parent Symposium | University of Michigan School of Education https://soe.umich.edu/events/u-m-digital-wellness-youth-and-parent-symposium-jan-2023

Students presented, sang, read poems and stories, watched a slideshow of support, and listened to Mr. Brian Irizarry, our featured speaker, and each veteran to learn about the importance of service, discipline, and courage. This annual assembly was special in every way.
