MMSD 2020-2021 School Calendar

August 2020
From Principal Boran
*Please note: The August Principal Letter was sent by email last week to students and parents.

Welcome back.
While it's not the opening of school we hoped for, the start to school this fall using virtual learning is one for which we have been planning for since last spring, knowing that this would be part of any plan.
Our sight is always on how to safely achieve face-to-face instruction for all our students.  That's our first priority.  This priority is embedded in all our plans for our virtual start to the year so that when it is safe, we can seamlessly transition to coming back physically to West.
To that end, West staff have been planning and meeting all summer to think about how to benefit from what we have learned from virtual learning last spring and this summer during virtual summer school... Click here to see the rest of the letter!

    MMSD Athletics
    The Regents Sports Kick-off meeting is joined this year with the MMSD athletic kickoff and is available for viewing on YouTube.  The meeting will go through the required forms for participating in the 2020-21 school year and changes related to the Covid-19 pandemic. The last section of the meeting, following the athletic code portion, will be centered on providing information to families that have an interest in playing sports beyond high school to better understand the process of college athletics at all levels. The meeting will be viewable following the initial broadcast at the same link and additional information is available on this statement.
    Please remember to complete all online forms and have a current physical on file to be ready for participation when we return to athletics. You can send the copy of the physical via a scanned email image to Sara Anderson or through US mail to Athletics at West HS, 30 Ash St. Madison 53726.
