Preschool Drop Off for Late Start Wednesdays Print

The following dates are upcoming Late Start Wednesdays (LSW):

Wednesday, April 2nd

Wednesday, April 23rd

Wednesday, May 14th

Wednesday, May 28th

Wednesday, June 4th

Please note the following change in PRESCHOOL drop off procedures for these dates:

We have been given permission from Doherty Elementary to use the bus loop on the remaining LSW mornings for preschool drop off.  We may use the bus loop for preschool drop off only between 8:45-8:55.  If you arrive after the preschool drop off time, it will be necessary to park in the parking lot and walk your child to his/ her preschool class.

Upon arrival, a preschool only sign will be posted instructing the use of the bus loop and location.  When pulling into the school, please stay in the right hand lane and preschool staff will take your child directly from the bus loop.


We apologize for any confusion or disruption the LSW may have caused you and your family. We hope to remedy the problem with the above solution.  Thank you for your support and patience.

If you have further questions or concerns, please contact Kathi Luthe at 248-865-6360 or e-mail .

Thank You! Print
