Hello McHi parents, community members, teachers and staff. I would like to take this time to let you know about the plans for school from, March 23rd - April 3rd. Our main priority is keeping all of our students safe, while still being able to provide them with the best education possible. We appreciate your patience and support during this time.

Health Tips from our McHi Nursing Staff

The top tip: Wash your hands. Why? Viruses can spread from person to person via respiratory droplets. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, close contacts can be infected. In addition, the virus can end up on doorknobs, elevator buttons and other surfaces. If you touch those surfaces and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth, you can become infected.
