Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Charter Elementary School will welcome students back on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. The school building has been assessed and determined to be safe. Dr. King Elementary will follow a normal schedule. We are strongly encouraging parents to have students take a COVID test prior to returning. This will help in decreasing the number of students having to quarantine due to exposure. As a reminder, all students must continue to wear a mask while on campus.
Dr. Martin Luther King, High School will remain closed due to minor damage in the school building. We anticipate high school students returning by the end of the month. High school students are being reminded to log into their student email accounts for updates and memos from teachers and administration.
If your child is unable to return for the start of school due to extenuating circumstances, please call the front office to inform the school. We understand this being difficult times for everyone, but we will all overcome by working together. We stand united in supporting our students, staff and community.
Loving God, maker of heaven and earth, protect us in your love and mercy. Send the Spirit of Jesus to be with us, to still our fears and give us confidence.
In the stormy waters, Jesus reassured his disciples by his presence, calmed the storm, and strengthened their faith. Guard us from harm during this storm and renew our faith to serve you faithfully.
Give us the courage to face all difficulties and the wisdom to see the ways your Spirit binds us together in mutual assistance. With confidence we make our prayer through Jesus Christ our Lord.
