WCC Adult Transitions

In an effort to better serve students in Eastern Washtenaw County, WCC Adult Transitions has a new partnership with Washtenaw Intermediate School District and the Charter Township of Ypsilanti.

They are now offering both English as a Second Language (ESL) and a GED Pathway programs at the Ypsilanti Township Community Center. They provide comprehensive services to adult students who want to improve their English Language or academic skills to earn a high school equivalency certificate. This Career Pathway program also supports students in their transition to college, career training and jobs.

School Closing Info

Click to Check School Closings


Any time there is inclement weather in the forecast, our transportation director and one of our mechanics check road conditions between 3:30 and 4:30 a.m. The school closing relay is then activated and the media and school personnel are notified. Check the following media outlets for up-to-date school information:

  • Local TV Broadcast Channels 2, 4, 7
  • Local Radio Stations WWJ/WJR
  • Lincoln Website
  • Facebook/Twitter  
  • School Messenger Calling System  

How is the decision made to close school?

The first consideration is always the safety of our students. Beginning around 2:00 a.m., staff members drive around our district to evaluate the road conditions and determine if our buses will be able to safely transport students.  Our district covers over 72 square miles of both paved and dirt roads, so conditions in one part of the district may differ from another.  

The Superintendents of WISD districts begin to confer as soon as there appears to be an issue, but generally by 4:00 a.m. the conversation is underway.  Lincoln Schools has chosen not to identify a specific wind chill factor for closure by policy, but to examine each specific occurrence.   Using the information from staff, as well as local and national weather sources, a decision is made for our district. 

Once the decision to close is made,we notify the media stations, staff, and families.  Families are notified through our automated calling system.  We also post the notice on our website, Twitter, Facebook, and send an email to our district email list.

The Michigan Department of Education allows 30 hours for school closures during the school year.  Anything beyond that usually requires make-up days or minutes which must be approved by the Board of Education.

5511 - Dress and Grooming

The Board of Education recognizes that each student's mode of dress and grooming is a manifestation of personal style and individual preference. The Board will not interfere with the right of students and their parents to make decisions regarding their appearance, except when their choices interfere with the educational program of the schools.

Accordingly, the Superintendent shall establish such grooming guidelines as are necessary to promote discipline, maintain order, secure the safety of students, and provide a healthy environment conducive to academic purposes. Such guidelines shall prohibit student dress or grooming practices which:

 A. present a hazard to the health or safety of the student himself/herself or to others in the school;

B. interfere with school work, create disorder, or disrupt the educational program; 

C. cause excessive wear or damage to school property; 

D. prevent the student from achieving his/her own educational objectives because of blocked vision or restricted movement.

Such guidelines shall establish the dress requirements for members of the athletic teams, bands, and other school groups when representing the District at a public event.

The Superintendent shall develop administrative guidelines to implement this policy which:

A. designate the principal as the arbiter of student dress and grooming in his/her building; 

B. invite the participation of staff, parents, and/or students in the preparation of a dress code which may specify prescribed dress and grooming practices, but may not amplify the rationale for prohibition established by Board policy; 

C. instruct staff members to demonstrate, by example and precept, personal neatness, cleanliness, propriety, modesty, and good sense in attire and appearance;

Students who violate the foregoing rules will not be admitted to class and may be suspended from school.
