Dear St. Louis Public Schools,
Due to the number of COVID-19 positive cases and other illnesses arising in the district among staff and students, we are going to pause all academic and extracurricular activities. The pause will be in effect from January 19th through January 23rd. Normal school operations and extracurriculars will return on January 24th. This is a school closure it is not a transition to virtual. There will not be any classes.
Extracurricular activities will run as regularly scheduled for tonight, January 18th.
The high school final exams will be postponed and more information about the end of the semester for all students will be communicated at a later date.

FFA State Degree Recipients
The State FFA Degree is the highest honor a State FFA Association can bestow upon its members. To qualify for this degree, members must have been enrolled in agricultural education for at least two years and complete 360 hours of school-based agricultural education. They must also have a productive Supervised Agricultural Experience, which is conducted outside of school where they have invested an additional 300 hours. Members must have also demonstrated their leadership abilities through a speech, demonstration of parliamentary procedure, and serve as a committee member or as a chapter officer. FFA Members who receive this award have completed a minimum of 25 service hours and have a satisfactory academic record verified by the school administration. The Michigan State FFA Degree is also counted by Michigan State University for six general education credits and can be applied to any degree track at MSU. This year’s recipients are Kassidy Acker, Corban Allen, Michael Hrabal, Taylor Marr, and Jaden Simmons.
St. Louis Students Assist in the Need for Blood DonationsAnatomy and Physiology students successfully hosted two blood drives this year through Michigan Blood and collected 180 pints of blood from staff, students and community members. The students worked hard to recruit donors, get food donations from local businesses and organized all aspects of the day. They did an amazing job!
Little Free Library
Take a Book ~ Share a Book
You may have noticed a new addition outside of Carrie Knause! We now have our own little free library! One of our 2nd graders in Mrs. Jenkin's class thought this would be a great addition to our school. Her and her classmates then pursued a grant through the Youth Advisory Council with the Gratiot Community Foundation to secure the funds for this project! Please feel free to grab a book when your child needs something to read or swap us books after your child has finished reading one of their books!
Digital All-State Athlete Display
Please check out our new interactive touch screen display just outside the gym for All-State athletes at SLHS! All you have to do is walk up and touch the display to interact with it. This is an ongoing project by some of our business students and we are working to get it updated and current. If you have additions to this site, please email Mr. Brian Anderson, Athletic Director. Also, for most of the athletes we had to scan in old yearbook photos so if you have an updated photo of yourself, please send it on as well. View the Digital All State Display here.
Schools of Choice
Schools in Gratiot and Isabella counties participate in a cross-district Schools of Choice Program. Parents can consider a school that best fits their child's individual needs. Schools of Choice applications must be completed and submitted to the Gratiot-Isabella Region Education Service District. Check out the Schools of Choice brochure and the School of Choice Application for more information.
