Dear Mill Creek Friends and Family,
Mustangs this week, you will find information regarding district expectations for those students that registered for school based distant learning. Included in the videos are learning expectations, what students/parents can expect, and an overview of the guidance that has been given to schools to structure school based distant learning.
Please view the grade appropriate video in the Distance Learner section of the newsletter below.
Additionally, we have finalized our Meet and Greet schedules for Friday, August 28. It is expected that all students, both those registered to come back as brick & mortar, and school based distance learners use Schoology as the main Learning Management System(LMS) this year.
On August 23, all families will receive specific information regarding how to access their student(s) Schoology page for the 20-21 school year. This information will be needed to access Meet and Greet on August, 28, which will take place virtually through the conferencing feature on Schoology.
For students new to MCA and any returning student to MCA that does not know their Schoology username and password, below is the link for parents to register for HAC. This would be the parent sign in only.
In the meantime, I believe it is good planning to know when Meet and Greet is scheduled for our students.
ALL elementary/middle school teacher will be "live" at the beginning of each session/period time below. This time is meant to do a quick meet and greet, see each others faces and ask a few questions. We will have Curriculum Chat Night in mid-September.
Elementary Times Each session will be less than 15 minutes. Teachers will disseminate important beginning of the year information. Please choose ONE(1) session time as all sessions will be the same. This allows our families with multiple students an opportunity to visit all their teachers. Directions on how to access the conferences will come from classroom/homeroom teachers the week of August 24.

- Session 2 - 9:30
- Session 3 - 10:30

As you prepare your schedules for Meet and Greet, please be watchful for upcoming communication regarding Schoology access & important paperwork that will be sent via email and need to be returned by students on the 1st day of school.
I hope our new communication tool provides clarity in communication. Communication information about nine(9) grade levels and addresses the important events and moments during these 9 years of schooling is so important to me, but can become very big. It is my goal to provide communication in a way that is user friendly and easy for families to receive information in an efficient way.
Mustangs, as we kick off this school year, please read carefully to make sure you don't miss important information. We are looking forward to a great year and can't be more excited to see all our friends very soon!
