Superintendent's Listening Tour

Dear Mansfield School Community,


In order to provide families with an opportunity to share your thoughts about remote learning and to receive updates on how we are preparing for the 2020-2021 school year, we will host a virtual town hall style meeting on Monday, June 8 at 6:00 PM.


My goal is to listen more than talk during this meeting. I want to know what has worked for you and your children? What would you prefer distance learning to look like? Every grade, every subject, every student, every family is different and we are trying to meet all needs. This is an opportunity for me to hear from you as we prepare for September and beyond.


We will provide a link to access the meeting that day. The link will be posted on our district Facebook and Twitter accounts and our web page.


Sincerely,


Teresa Murphy

C.h.a.m.p.s. Summer Programs

C.H.A.M.P.S. will remain closed during the summer. This means that the Summer Institutes and the childcare program will not be in operation. We recognize that this is a disappointment for students, families and counselors, but we remain focused on our #1 goal and that is to have our schools ready for fall.

Transitions events


Robinson Kindergarten Orientation - Principal Sankey will host a virtual kindergarten orientation for families on Tuesday, June 16 at 7:00 PM. A link to the event will be posted on the Robinson web page, Facebook and Twitter early in the day.

Students can ask questions and learn about Jordan/Jackson. These "meets" will be scheduled throughout the month of June.
