What is PBIS?

(POSITIVE BEHAVIOR INTERVENTION STRATEGIES)

PBIS is a school-wide system of support that includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create a positive school environment.

Why PBIS?

*Research conducted over the past fifteen years has shown that PBIS is effective in promoting positive behavior in students and schools. Use of PBIS as a strategy to maintain appropriate social behavior will make schools safer. Safer schools are more effective learning environments.

*Schools that implement system-wide interventions also report increased time engaged in academic activities and improved academic performance.

*Schools that employ system-wide interventions for problem behavior prevention indicate reductions in office discipline referrals of 20-60%. If you would like to know more about this contact the Principal at 395-3754.

TRANSPORTATION NEWS

As always, Capac Community Schools puts student safety at the forefront.. Please review the following bus safety tips:

 

  • LOOK AT SCHOOL BUSES AS TRAFFIC SIGNALS: The Michigan Association for Pupil Transportation offers a simple, yet effective back-to school safety message to help drivers respond safely in and around school buses: Think of school buses as traffic signals. The association’s tips:
  • When overhead lights are flashing YELLOW-- PREPARE TO STOP
  • When overhead lights are flashing RED--STOP
  • When the regular hazard lights are flashing, PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

In a one-day study (May 2013) involving 1,392 school buses, bus drivers reported 1,165 vehicles passing while the RED lights were flashing. Throughout Michigan, there are approximately 17,000 school buses transporting over 1 million children to and from school every day.

 



District Transportation Provides:

  • One pick-up/One drop-off address.  Addresses may be different am and pm for daycare; however, they must be consistant five (5) days a week.  Exceptions will be made for shared custody. 
  • Bus passes will only be issued to elementary students and only for emergencies.

Visitors

All parents and visitors to Capac Middle School must sign in at the office upon entering the building. 

Please do not show up, unannounced, at the classroom and expect teachers to take instructional time to meet with you. They can better address your concerns if you phone or e-mail them to set up a mutually convenient time.

 

Student Safety

Students are not to walk between buildings. If it is necessary for them to go to an athletic practice or meet a sibling at another building after-school, they must ride their bus to the bus circle.  If they are "walkers", they can "shuttle" over on any bus parked in front of the school. 

 

Morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up routines at Capac Middle School have been a concern for many years.  In an effort to avoid serious injury to any child, the District Transportation Department and the Village of Capac have agreed to close Neeper Street to vehicle traffic, between Church Street and Aldrich Street, from 2:35 p.m. and 2:45 p.m

 

When picking up your child please park on either Church or Aldrich Street and instruct them to meet you there.   Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
