The TEA just issued guidance that schools are allowed to continue mandating mask wearing. Meridian will continue to require masks on campus, based upon safety guidelines from the CDC.
Equity at Meridian

We are also proud to share the video our Meridian choir made in honor of Black History Month. Students, staff, parents, and alumni sang, "Lift Every Voice and Sing," known as the Black National Anthem. We shared the video and why the song means so much to those who worked on it during student assemblies last week.
Asynchronous Day Friday, March 5

The next asynchronous learning day is this Friday, March 5. There will be no live Zoom classes on that day. We ask that students stay home where possible to give our teachers a chance to plan for upcoming lessons and work on ongoing professional development. 

If your child needs to be on campus that day, please complete this form by 8 am Thursday, March 4 for each child who requires on-campus supervision.
