Dr. Charles C. Smith, Interim Superintendent, supports the launch of OK2SAY, a new hotline and student safety initiative available to Michigan students beginning in the 2014-2015 academic year.

Capac Community Schools Mission Statement:
To prepare all of our students to be life-long learners educating them for success in the 21st Century.
The 2014-2015 school year has begun with children in the classrooms and school buses on the road. School buses are like traffic signals, when the lights are flashing yellow-prepare to stop, when the lights flash red-stop, and when the hazard warning lights are flashing-proceed cautiously. For everyone's safety, heed the flashers on the school buses.
