Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! We're looking forward to a great year of learning with our outstanding students!
Did you know...
that Muskegon Public Schools offers a Two Way Immersion Program for grades K-5th. This program is housed at Marquette Elementary School. What is Two Way Immersion? Two Way Immersion creates an environment where English and Spanish-speaking students learn together. These students build knowledge in all standard academic areas by learning in both Spanish and English languages. Children emerge from the program with an appropriate level of bilingualism and bi-literacy. Interested in this program for your son or daughter, contact Mary Scott, Principal, or Jennifer Halverson, Assistant Principal, at 231-720-2600. We are enrolling now for the fall!

Make an Appointment
The School Wellness Program provides health screenings, health education, counseling, and other health resources to youth through the care of a School Nurse and a licensed Behavioral Health Provider. A signed parental consent is required for your child to receive most services. The School Programs Staff can see patients without a parent present as long as there is a signed consent on file. They can see your child only once with a parent’s verbal permission, which can be given over the phone to a Hackley Community Care School Programs staff member. Please call 231.733.6816 to schedule an appointment

Hackley Community Care School Programs consist of three different models in seven different schools, four of which are in the Muskegon Public School district. The three different models are Teen Health Centers (THCs), School Wellness Programs (SWPs) and Behavioral Health only sites. The School Programs are a model of care for underserved children and youth that increases coordination of medical and behavioral healthcare services. These sites serve as a natural anchor for kids, residents, neighborhoods, and schools.
Hackley Community Care School Programs must abide by all Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) laws for privacy and cannot tell school staff why a child has accessed their facility. Health records are not given to school staff without appropriate releases signed by a parent.
