Welcome new McBride ELA Teacher Alyssa Slayton!

"My name is Alyssa Slayton and I'm the new 8th grade ELA teacher at McBride. I grew up in Holland, MI and graduated from the University of Michigan in 2014. After college, I moved around a bit and worked as a coffee barista, public library desk clerk, and substitute teacher. Somewhere during that time I settled in Ypsilanti and decided to pursue my dream of becoming a teacher through Eastern Michigan's Education program. I completed my student teaching this past fall at Belleville High School in the New Tech program. Since then, I've been working at BHS as a long-term sub. I'm thrilled to be staying in the district and hope to become a permanent part of this community!"

McBride Middle School Update 4/3/2020

Dear McBride Community,

We hope everyone is staying home, staying safe and staying healthy. These last few days have seen some major changes in how we educate students for the remainder of this school year. These changes are making an impact on all of us educationally, but also mentally and emotionally. We are committed to continuing to go through this alongside our McBride families, and will continue to be here to support you throughout the remainder of this school year.

As you probably already have heard, Governor Whitmer declared yesterday the school buildings have been closed for the remainder of the 2019-20 School Year (unless the restriction gets lifted). However, we are working as a building staff to create a virtual learning plan to keep educating students. We realize this is not the same as in person learning during normal school days, but we want to make certain our students are prepared for their next level of schooling. As soon as this virtual plan is in place we will communicate that with you.

For students who are struggling with the stress, anxiety, depression, or other emotions that a pandemic can elicit, our counselors have set up their own Google Classroom. Students can join using code ​gi4p5sx. ​Information to help students with their coping skills is posted, as well as direct contact information for the counselors, so students can audio or video chat with the counselors.

In closing, I would like to remind everyone that these incredibly challenging times are temporary and together, we will get through it. As always, please feel free to contact me at jleroy@vanburenschools.net​ or via phone at 810-373-5052 - (Google Voice Number) and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


Take care of yourselves and your families,


John Leroy McBride Middle School Principal
