MCSD will continue with our current plan of optional mask use at our summer programs UNTIL OHA/ODE finalize their rule around K-12 mask use. https://www.oregon.gov/newsroom/Pages/NewsDetail.aspx?newsid=64174 MCSD is committed to keeping our school buildings open to full-time, in-person learning this school year.
August Jumpstart starts in 1 week!
We would like to share with families and the public that Morrow County School District expects to fully reopen schools to full-day, in-person learning this fall. We maintain those expectations through guidance from the Oregon Department of Education and its Ready Schools, Safe Learners Resiliency Framework for the 2021-22 School Year. Currently we anticipate that we will be able to return to school with the optional use of face coverings by students and staff as well as full use of our bussing system. For families that have found online or school at home works better for them, we will continue to provide this opportunity through our online school at MEC. There are always many details to opening school in the fall, and this year those details will include things like COVID-19 safety measures. We of course will continue to partner with public health officials and plan to keep families updated as we finalize those details as we move into August.
Don't forget to schedule your Well Care appointments - these cover the required sports physicals!

Each year, seniors in Mrs. Payne's Senior Seminar class write 'Thank You' notes to our local Veterans during the month of November. Thank you Louis for showing us how you have commemorated this special note.
