Announcements February 12, 2021

No School – Monday, February 15
In honor of President’s Day, MMC will be closed Monday, February 15. There will be no in-person classes or E-Learning assignments that day.

Inclement Weather/Hybrid-at-Home
Forecasters are predicting a slight possibility of severe weather in our area next week. If we must close school, we will revert to the “Hybrid-at-Home” learning model. On the days when students would normally attend classes in-person, instead they will attend live online via Google Meet. Attendance will be taken at these sessions. Students should look for specific instructions from their teachers in Google Classroom, and should reach out via email with any questions. 

If school is closed for weather or any emergency situation, the fastest way for you to receive this announcement is via Remind. Please follow these instructions to sign up for our school-wide Remind. Announcements regarding school closure will also be sent via email.

Social-Emotional Learning Family Night

Health & Safety Reminder
We are committed to keeping our students and staff safe during our in-person learning. Please remember to notify the school immediately if you test positive for COVID-19, or if you have been identified as a close contact to someone who tests positive. If you are experiencing any possible symptoms of COVID, you should stay home and contact the school. 
Masks must be worn PROPERLY at all times on campus. This includes covering the mouth and nose. Parents, please ensure your student has a mask that fits well and stays in place. Thank you for helping to keep our campus healthy!
