Like businesses across the nation, the MCS Child Nutrition Dept. has been experiencing some outs and shortages from our suppliers. MCS will continue to substitute products as possible from our suppliers. If we have to change menus, we work diligently to try to give plenty of notice to students and families. Updates are sent through your child’s school as necessary. We appreciate your patience, grace, and understanding.

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!

In social studies classrooms, students will be learning of the Declaration of Independence, Emancipation Proclamation, and Constitution of the United States with an emphasis on the Bill of Rights. This includes the environments and the study of historical documents that inspired the founding fathers for the purposes of safeguarding our Constitutional republic.

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.
