Good morning, Van Dyke Community. It hurts my heart and soul each time we hear of another shooting or act of violence, especially in schools. Yesterday's events in Denver have affected us all. Please reach out to the school if you or your children need additional support. We are all in this together. We pledge to do everything we can to keep our buildings safe for students, staff, and visitors - including physically and emotionally. Again, be sure to always hug your loved ones and say I LOVE YOU more thanever. I love you. - Mrs. Bognar

Congratulations to Ms. Kathy Saunders, our Auditorium Coordinator, who recently wrote and received a grant from Extra Credit Union. The Grant funds will directly benefit our auditorium upgrades, and we already have a beautiful new podium for school events!

Happy Friday, VDPS Community! We hope you are enjoying the mid-winter break. Last week, two of our CAD (computer aided design) students were honored at the Macomb County MCTEAA Awards. Shaun Gianino, pictured, and Cynthia Lor both received honors. Cynthia also received a scholarship for the fall semester. Congratulations to our Abes, and keep up the motivation & great work.

Good morning, Van Dyke Community. This message comes from a heavy heart. As our state mourns the events at MSU last night, we all hug our loved ones a bit more tightly this morning. All of us in Van Dyke vigilantly work to keep your students safe daily and it saddens us that we have to think about such things in a place of community and learning for our children and staff. We are sending love and peace to all.

Good afternoon, VDPS families and community. This weekend brought sad and tragic events to our country once again. Many of you are having difficult and heartbreaking conversations with your children. These are family conversations that you will want to have, but here are a few articles that might help when your loved ones are asking questions. Please reach out to your child's school if you feel they need more support. We are in this together. https://www.onoursleeves.org/mental-wellness-tools-guides/conversation-starters/talking-to-children-about-current-events https://www.npr.org/2019/04/24/716704917/when-the-news-is-scary-what-to-say-to-kids

In an update from our Warren Police Dept, the investigation to the potential alleged threat from last week has been concluded. In a search of student cell phones, it has been concluded that there were no threats to any of our schools and that there was no direct language to a school threat. Again, it is safe to return and we would never run school if it were not. We thank you for hanging in and for your support.

Hello, Van Dyke Community! Don't forget that there will be no school on Monday, January 16 so that we may celebrate the life and legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His contributions to our society and to the Civil Rights movement cannot be forgotten.

Good evening, Van Dyke families. There will be no school tomorrow, Friday, January 13. We were made aware this afternoon of a potential alleged threat. Two brave students saw something on another’s phone and reported it to administrators. The Warren PD are working with us to help with the investigation. We will update you as we find out more information. Thank you, and have a safe weekend.

In collaboration with the Warren Police Department K-9 unit, the adorable but serious and hard-working dogs will be doing a training exercise in our middle and high schools late next week. This will be done while students are in class, and all dogs will be leashed with an experienced K-9 trainer. In the past, this has been a fun way for our students and staff to see the dogs in action and the officers working with them. We look forward to another successful exercise and continuing this community partnership!
