Lake Orion Community Schools hosting a book drive! LO School Book Drive

Did you know that the average elementary school student in Lake Orion reads as many as two books a week? That's nearly 80 books a year. Our middle schoolers read about 40 books annually. Not surprisingly, these books wear out!  Do you have new or gently used books at home that are just collecting dust? Our schools are collecting books now through November 18 as part of the District's annual book drive that benefits all classrooms! The books can be any reading level, preschool through adult. Drop off is during school hours and parent teacher conferences.A team of teachers will select those appropriate for school use and they will go directly into our classrooms. Thank you for supporting LO's young readers!

11/8: No School for Elementary Students
School Speed Zones School Speed Zone

Superintendent Ginopolis is very aware of parent concerns with the excessive speed of cars around our schools.  She has previously asked the Michigan Department of Transportation to install speed signage near Orion Oaks Elementary and Oakview Middle School, in particular.  (Township Supervisor Chris Barnett also has been a strong advocate for this.) Unfortunately, MDOT informed the District that it will not install such signage because neither building is considered a “walker” school.  Nevertheless, Rep. Jacobsen has been sponsoring legislation in regard to school zones and she has contacted him to provide an update on its status.  The District will share this information when it is received.
