Marlette Community Schools in Sanilac County closed today, tomorrow, Friday.
Statement from the district:
Earlier today (Tuesday, December 18) school officials were advised of a conversation between students on a district bus. Several students were interviewed by school administration and local law enforcement and parents were contacted.
The investigation revealed the conversation between the two students was that of recent events in nearby districts and not that of Marlette Community Schools.
It was determined that student safety was not in jeopardy at any time. However, due to the recent events, the Board of Education and administration felt that it was in the best interest of the district to cancel classes and extra curricular events for the remainder of the week. The days will be made up in June.
