***Student Illness***

  1. If a student has a fever or experiences vomiting, they must be kept at home for 24 hours AFTER the fever or vomiting has stopped
  2. * Please DO NOT send your child to school if they are contagious.   * Any assignments or tests can be made up when they return.  * We need to keep sick children from infecting their classmates and teachers. 

Please make sure you notify the 24Hr. Attendance Line at 248-823-4101 before 9 am the day of the absence. 






This is what you need to know:

    • When you see a Box Top cut it out along the dotted line and put it in a baggie.
    • Please make sure it has not expired.
    • Collect and return to your teacher as many Box Tops as you can between now and Friday, June 8th.
    • The GRADE with the most box tops (average per student) WINS a popsicle party the last week of school!


Box Tops will be collected in jars that will be on display in the school’s lobby. 

Watch as each grade works to fill the jars!

Whichever grade has the most Box Tops on June 8th WINS!!

As you are aware, the Troy School District needs to collect all district owned staff and student iPads prior to summer break. Since your student will not receive the same iPad in the Fall, it is necessary to back up any photos, files or other data from the device prior to collection.  Building techs are available for questions and assistance with this task. 

iPads will be collected during the school day on June  7, 2018.  It is important that your child brings his/her iPad with the case intact, and the complete charger on this date for turn in.  Missing or damaged items will be assessed fees based on the fee schedule provided when your child received the iPad.  The fee schedule is outlined below for your review.  If your student has fees assessed, a form will be sent home explaining the fees the day of iPad collection.

Fee Schedule

  • Broken Screen – Fees will be accessed based on occurrence count.
  • Missing Case -- $30
  • Missing Charger Cable -- $10
  • Missing USB Wall Charger -- $20
  • Missing iPad – $300

If you have questions regarding turning in your student’s iPad please contact the Troy School District Technology Resource Center at 248-823-5092 between 7 AM and 4 PM or email
