Out of my distress I called on the Lord; the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?
Psalm 118:5-6
Greetings MLS Families,

We are excited to have our students back in the building starting Tuesday! Cohort B returns to the building on Tuesday the 19th, Cohort A on Wednesday the 20th and so on. Please keep in mind all travel restrictions apply so be mindful of where you have been and adhere to the quarantine policies set by the state.

The week of January 25th is midterms for year long high school classes, and finals for semester long high school classes. Students will be informed by their teacher if there is a midterm or final for that course. For the safety of our students, all midterm and final exams will be REMOTE.  Students that have an IEP will be allowed to take their exams in the building with Ms. Martin. As mentioned in prior post, we recognize that we are living through unprecedented times, therefore, we have made a change to our school policy for midterms this academic year.  All students, grades 9 - 12, may be exempt from a midterm/final if they have an 85 (average of Quarter 1 and Quarter 2) or higher average in that class. Students will be informed by their teacher if they are exempt!!! Students are not to assume that they are exempt without being told so by their teacher. The Midterm Schedule can be found below.

Middle School will have a regular schedule Monday the 25th - Thursday the 28th. There is no school on Friday the 29th for ALL grades.
