Parent News – October 28, 2014

Hello all!  I hope that you have made it though the rain over the past week and are enjoying a small dose of sun.

Locking Doors at MMS

I wanted to share with you that our school will be implementing the new auto locks on our doors.  The rest of the district has already started this but we have had some technical issues with our equipment that has prevented us from starting to lock down out building during the day.  Starting next week our doors will not open until 7:15AM in the morning.  This is the time that we have staff to supervise students at school in the cafeteria. We currently have a few students who are arriving before 7:15AM  and it is important to know that they will not be able to enter the building until that time.  Please make sure that if you are dropping off or your child is a walker that they do not arrive prior to 7:15AM.   The doors to the school will then be locked during the school day and visitors will need to enter through the front entrance and buzz in using the communication panel to the right of the entrance,  Our school will be open after school for athletics and then will lock down for the night at 5:45PM. If you come back after 5:45PM the doors will be locked.  I wanted to clarify that so nobody wasted gas or time driving in for a forgotten book or assignment.  Announcements are being made all week to students to help them plan ahead.

Needs Assessment

Our guidance office is trying to better understand what you need from the school to support your child.  For that reason they have created a needs assessment that is available here.  Please take a few minutes to fill this out.

Spirit Week

This week has been spirit week.  Wednesday is Tye Dye Day. Thursday is Red/White and Blue Day.  Friday is Halloween and students can wear appropriate costumes.  We will be having our annual parade  through the school in the morning for those who dress up and wish to take part.

Have a great couple of weeks.
