Mr. Holman's Weekly Parent Update 09/07/20

Dear Parents and Guardians:

September 14 is just around the corner!  We are looking forward to getting the school year started and to working with you and your children.  It was great to have so many of our sixth graders come in for tours last week.  Schools feel much better when there are children present!  A lot of work has gone into building schedules for the current configuration, and I really appreciate the hard work of our office staff for all that they are doing.  It is a conservative estimate that preparing schedules took more than twice as much work this year.  We are extremely happy to be able to bring students back to schools this fall, and we continue to hope for improving pandemic conditions.  A few reminders:

Fall Sports:  Our first day of fall sports will be Monday, Sept. 14.  Please see this attachment for additional information about our model, and please sign up on RegisterMyAthlete if you haven't already done so:  MMS Fall Sports Info 2020-21.docx 

Schedule Pick Up Day:  Schedules and other items are available for pickup on Tuesday, September 8, from 9 am to 6 pm.  Please let us know if you aren't available to stop by on that day so that we can make other arrangements.  We will be handing out information for hybrid model and online-only students to answer questions that you may have regarding the start of school, along with other information and items/materials in some cases.  Please consult the following information sheet:  Pick Up Day Letter Fall 2020.docx 

Note:  If the D street entrance is busy or backed up at all, please enter the parking lot near the District office on Cleveland and pull all the way through to the south end of the parking lot.  You may exit in either direction, and we will have document drop off stations at both.  Thank you for your help!

As always, please contact us if you have questions about anything.
