Family Handbook

Dear Commerce Families,

We have a Family Handbook to provide important information to our school community.  We hope that new families will find it beneficial as you get to know your new school.  We also hope this handbook will be a worthwhile review of procedures for current Commerce families. 

We encourage you to go over the contents of this handbook prior to the start of the school year and periodically throughout the year.  As appropriate, please talk with your child about relevant sections.  It is important that all parents, children, and staff have a clear understanding of Commerce’s procedures and expectations.  We all play an important role in making our school a special place to learn and grow.

In addition to our Commerce Family Handbook, all families are expected to read the Walled Lake School District Student Code of Conduct and Transportation Handbook.  Parents acknowledge that they have read and agree to these handbooks during the online registration process.  Both of these handbooks contain important information for families. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the main office.  We are always available to answer any questions you may have.  If it’s important to you, it’s important to us.
