Other Awards

(12/20/2021) Marquette Area Public Schools is pleased to announce that all seven of our schools have qualified for the MI HEARTSafe School Award Program.

A HEARTSafe designation recognizes a school’s efforts to prevent sudden cardiac death of the young (SCDY) by preparing for a cardiac emergency. Members of this school community know how to recognize the signs of a sudden cardiac arrest and respond quickly by calling 9-1-1 and using CPR and an automated external defibrillator (AED) until EMS arrives.
