Good evening parents. We are still working to identify the person who made the vague threat last week. We will continue to have an increased law enforcement presence throughout the district tomorrow. We are in constant contact with local law enforcement officials and do not believe that there is any threat to the students’ safety but out of an abundance of caution we will continue to enhance the security presence at each building. As always you are welcome to call me at 989 429 0610. Rick

This afternoon school administrators at the high school discovered a vague threat written on the bathroom wall. We have consulted with law-enforcement and do not believe that there is any danger to the student body. Out of abundance of caution we will have an increased police presence at all school buildings beginning tomorrow through Tuesday morning. Again, after consulting with local law-enforcement we do not believe there is any danger to the student body, however we take our students’ safety very seriousIy at Gladwin Community Schools and will be responding to this threat by increasing the law enforcement presence throughout the District. It is possible that officers will search student backpacks and other bags upon entering the buildings, so plan accordingly. An investigation is ongoing and the person responsible for the threat will be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as well as being held accountable through the schools disciplinary process. As always, feel free to call me at 989-429-0610 if you have any questions or information about this situation. Rick

The first week of the 2022/23 academic year is in the books! It has been great catching up with all of the kids. Our preliminary student count looks very strong as we continue to welcome new Flying Gs to the District. I’m happy to report that despite the statewide teacher shortage, we are fully staffed with the single exception of a high school English position that is currently being taught by Jane Wetmore, a Flying G who came out of retirement to help us out. The students will benefit from Jane’s wealth of experience and background in teaching literacy. Take a moment to visit each schools “Feed” on this app to be introduced to all of our new staff including Gatsby the Elementary school’s new therapy dog. Ever wonder who works at the school? Check out this year’s Flying G family portrait! Who do you recognize? Gotta love all that blue and white!

The Flying G family!
Welcome to the 2022-23 academic year! Our staff have been working hard all summer to get ready for the return of students. Teachers and principals have been training in the latest instructional methods to ensure that Gladwin Community Schools continues its legacy of being a top performing district. Maintenance and custodial staff have accomplished an unprecedented amount of work to keep our facilities top notch. Transportation has been preparing new buses and our food service department has spent the summer upgrading their kitchens. In my 18 years of being your Superintendent, this has been one of the busiest summers I can remember! As a community you can be extremely proud of your school system and the work we are doing on behalf of our kids. Gladwin Community Schools continues to grow and prosper and our students continue to perform at the highest levels in our region! We are very excited to be adding new programs and new staff to meet the needs of your kids. Just this year alone we have added 13 new teachers. Please accept my sincere thanks on behalf of Gladwin Community Schools for all of your support. It is because of this awesome community that our staff and students are able to accomplish such amazing things. There simply has never been a better time to be a Flying G! With Flying G Pride! Rick
