A Message from the Administrator

Greetings MCS Families,


It’s another busy week at MCS and Homecoming at U of I! This year our middle school Theater students will be participating in the Homecoming Parade. Mrs. Gould, our theater teacher, has been practicing with our theater students and I look forward to watching them represent MCS at the parade.


It has been brought to my attention that some of our student's lunch balances are growing and have not been paid yet. Please remember that it is the responsibility of the parent(s) to make sure that a student's lunch account remains in good standing. This means that there should be a positive credit on their lunch account if they plan to purchase lunches.


If you have been notified of a balance due, you are asked to bring your account back to good standing within 3 business days of the notice. Per our lunch policy, any invoices that are outstanding greater than 30 days, will aquire a finance charge and continue to accrue these charges until the total balance paid in full. We do our best to notify you of your balance so that these charges do not accrue.


If you are having trouble paying off your lunch balance in full, we are happy to work with you. Please contact Lashelle at lwilson@moscowcharterschool.org with any questions regarding your balance.


If you need a Free and Reduced application, please following this link: Free and Reduced Application


If you have further questions on our lunch policy, please refer to our Student Handbook and School Lunch Policy


Have a great week and Go Vandals!!!


Sincerely,

Tony Bonuccelli

Administrator, Moscow Charter School

Walk to School with Mayor Bill Lambert!

Moscow Mayor Bill Lambert is doing the Idaho Mayor's Step Challenge. During the month of October he is competing against other mayors in Idaho to get a minimum of 10,000 steps per day. This challenge is to raise awareness of the need for healthy lifestyles and physical activity for school age children. If he reaches his goal, he will receive $1,000.00 to donate to the schools in Moscow.


He has invited the Moscow Charter School family to join him on Wednesday, October 17th to walk to school. Parents and guardians can drop off students from 7:45 to 8:00am at Rotary Park (corner of Orchard and F street) to depart at 8:00am to walk to school with the Mayor, Mr. B and other adult volunteers.
