Announcements September 4, 2020

We have reached the end of our second week and everyone seems to be settling in nicely to the new routine. Below are your announcements for this week:

“Virtual” Attendance
For students in our hybrid model, please understand that attendance on an E-Learning day is determined by completion of assigned lessons that day. Students who fail to submit assignments by the deadline established by the classroom teacher will be marked absent. If you have any questions about your attendance, please speak first with your classroom teacher and then with Mrs. Lee.

Assessment Schedule
See this link for our 2020-2021 Assessment Schedule, and mark these dates on your calendar. It is crucial for students to be present on these important dates!

School ID Photos
If you did not have your picture taken at Open House/Orientation, or if you would like to have your picture retaken, you will have that opportunity at 11:00 on Wednesday, September 9 or Thursday, September 10. These photos will be used to create MMC student IDs. Although we do not require our students to wear their IDs, they can be beneficial as a form of identification, obtaining access to student-only events, etc. 

COVID-19 Cases
MMC is working closely with DHEC to identify and report any positive cases within our school community. At this time, we have had ONE positive case. The student contracted the virus and tested positive prior to the start of school and had not set foot on our campus, so there were no close contacts identified. If we do have a case of someone who has been on campus and has tested positive, we will again work with DHEC to identify any close contacts, who will be notified right away and advised to begin quarantine. 
Remember, all students and staff should be monitoring themselves daily for any possible symptoms and should NOT come to school if sick. Notify the school right away if you test positive, are experiencing symptoms, or have a confirmed exposure to someone who tested positive.

Internet Hotspots
We still have a number of FREE or reduced-cost hotspots available. If you do not have reliable internet access at home, please contact Mrs. Girolamo as soon as possible to secure one of these devices.

Labor Day Holiday
Please note that Monday, September 7 is a school holiday – there will be no in-person classes or E-Learning assignments that day.
