Mental Health Resources

Our students’ mental health is of the utmost priority and grief can be difficult to manage for us all. We know that many of the supports at MAPS are limited to the school day/year. However, your child’s wellbeing and safety are our top priority twenty-four hours a day. If you have questions or need additional resources at home, please consider the following:

If your child is experiencing any anxiety, depression, or suicidal thoughts, please have them speak to a trusted adult. If you or a loved one is in crisis, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room immediately. The phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Notice Regarding Use of Marquette Area Public Schools Facilities

Please be advised that the Marquette Area Public Schools prohibits outside individuals and groups from using its facilities, including parking lots and school grounds, as a forum for advocacy of commercial, political, or social views. Although the District does not prohibit private speech between individuals in this regard, it has never previously, nor will it now, open the above facilities for use for the above purposes, regardless of the viewpoint expressed. Activities such as speeches, leafletting, marketing, canvassing, protesting, and rallying at the above facilities are strictly prohibited.

In this regard, Board Policy 3308 states, in relevant part, that:

District facilities may be used to advertise or distribute printed information for commercial or promotional purposes (“Advertisement”) in accordance with this Policy. An approved Advertisement does not reflect the District’s approval or endorsement of any product, organization, service, or issue referenced in the Advertisement.


A non-student group Advertisement may not reference a political candidate or ballot question.

As a result, the school parking lot is not considered an open public forum and therefore may not be used for producing or disseminating to the community any materials that advertise or promote a political party, a political cause, or the candidacy or recall of an individual in public office.

Your cooperation in this regard is appreciated. Should you have questions, please contact Superintendent Zack Sedgwick at 906-225-4200.
