The MC BOE recently accepted a resolution to recognize MCS as a Purple Heart District. Many WVs are veterans of the Unites States armed forces and have families with children attending school. During times when these families relocate to meet duty requirements or experience the absence of a loved one while on deployment, MCS has an opportunity to meet the unique needs of these children. The Purple Star Award is designed to recognize schools that create a military-friendly environment and make a special commitment to supporting the resilience of military connected children. For more information, contact L.D. Skarzinski, Administrative Assistant of C&I, at lskarzin@k12.wv.us or visit https://wvde.us/commonground/.

MCS Child Nutrition Office has received word that its application as a countywide Community Eligibility Program has been approved for the 2021-22 school year. All students in MCS have the opportunity to eat breakfast and lunch at school at no cost through CEP. The CEP was enacted as a result of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and provides universal meal service to children in high-poverty areas. What does this mean for students? If benefits become available again this year through the Pandemic EBT, ALL MCS families now qualify for these benefits. Marion County is an equal opportunity provider.

Match Survey
Mountain State Assessment of Trends in Community Health (MATCH) is a survey, similar to the U.S. census, designed to collect important health information specific to West Virginians. One in 14 West Virginians will be selected to complete the MATCH. Each selected West Virginian will have three options to take the survey: online, by paper, or by phone. Those who complete the survey will be compensated for their time. By completing the MATCH, participants ensure that their voices and the voices of their community are heard. Feedback makes a true difference, like helping policymakers and health officials better understand the reality of health in your community and providing the information needed to improve access to the health services you need. West Virginians should never have to miss doctor appointments or suffer through injuries without proper healthcare! Support us in improving the health of your community - tell your friends and neighbors why completing the MATCH matters!
