We are excited for students to return in person beginning Tuesday, August 24th. As a reminder, we are in mandated mask wearing when students return. Please also have your student begin charging their Chromebook for use on the first day. Chromebooks need to be brought every day and be fully charged for use. Thank you and GO BEARS!

Given a review of Marion County trends in COVID-19 cases, in collaboration with the MC Health Department, MCS will extend the current mask mandate in all indoor spaces for all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status, to the end of the first semester. This mandate was originally in place through August 25 by MCS. It will be assessed regularly in collaboration with the MC Health Department, and it is our sincere hope that it can be lifted when local cases fall within acceptable levels.
