Happy holiday weekend! A reminder that all MMS students will continue to learn remotely until the Covid-19 outbreak has been closed, per Maine CDC. That date is TBD and at least into November. Please see the 10/5 Principals’ Letter (below) or the District Schools Updates at rsu57.org for detailed information. https://drive.google.com/file/d/14Cqnf83pk95mBpXkr0ydGFDdW2fg6Xpp/view?usp=drivesdk
MMS families, a reminder that we're open for device pick up until 7 p.m. tonight and from 6:30 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. on Friday. Your child can get acclimated to their laptop and you can get a head start on opening day paperwork. (Thank you!) Any technology questions? Email our MMS Technician, email@example.com. We can't wait to see your student very soon!
MMS Families, In an abundance of caution, we have decided to send home student devices and materials to ALL students in advance of our anticipated start date. At this time, no changes have been made to the plans conveyed in Superintendent Malone's 9/7 message. Device pick up times for MMS are as follows: Wednesday, September 9th: 6:30am - 7:00pm Thursday, September 10th: 6:30am - 7:00pm Friday, September 11th: 6:30am - 12:00pm Staff will be available at the open Gym side doors #4 and #5 to assist you. As you approach the open doors, please know your child's team, wear a face covering, and observe all social distancing guidelines. We look forward to seeing your child soon!
About 75% of devices for remote learners were picked up this week! We’re open at MMS until 7 pm tonight. After today, devices may be picked up at your child’s school. If you are picking up tomorrow, please call the school first.
Good Morning, As I’m sure many of you are aware, the Department of Education as well as the Department of Health and Human Services responded yesterday to the Maine Principals Associations plans for Interscholastic Athletics in Maine High Schools. Additionally yesterday the guidelines for community recreation have been updated by the Maine Department of Economic and Community development. DOE and DHHS have returned the plan for restarting interscholastic athletics to the MPA and have also asked for more time for schools to reopen safely before athletic activity. As a result, we await further State agency guidance regarding all fall interscholastic activities. We fully understand the frustration many are feeling at this time and we ask that you stay positive. We will keep you updated as this situation continues to evolve. Thank you! Sincerely, Brendan Scully Activities Director RSU 57
MMS parents and students, please check your email or Synergy mail for a welcome from your team, as well as homeroom and first week information. As always, refer to the MMS Family Handbook on our website for additional details. We can’t wait to see you soon!
Remote Learners: Save the date!! We will be distributing student devices next Tuesday and Thursday beginning at 9:00 in the morning and ending at 7:00 pm. We will be distributing all devices from the middle school, More information will come out tomorrow and Friday.
MMS would like to welcome our students to the 20-21 school year. We can't wait to see you all! Please take a moment to view our welcome video at https://youtu.be/AO4mUt-u3h0 .
In order to decrease the amount of meal payments being handled by students and staff, we encourage all families to sign up for our online payment system. For more information on this service please visit the document section on our website. Documents>Information>School Nutrition Did you know... that you can earn one free bonus meal when you deposit $50.00 or more onto a student meal account. For example, a payment of $50 will be charged a fee of $2.49, but in return you will receive one bonus meal on the student meal account. The value of the meal exceeds the value of the fee. Bonus meals are automatically applied at lunch once earned.
My apologies, MMS! Our upload clearly did not work for everyone, so all team letters were just resent to parents directly from me. The company is working to fix the lists and I sincerely apologize for any confusion. Call us tomorrow if you need any assistance!
