Message from Principal Masone
What a lovely week we have had this week culminating in Walking School Bus today at Memorial Park. We had a wonderful crew of students along with our dedicated staff and a great, big pancake breakfast!
Beginning October 11th, we will begin after school care for elementary students at MSES. We had planned to have the YMCA on campus this year and unfortunately, the YMCA was unable to hire enough staff. MSES After School Care will begin October 11th. Find details below.
Conference are right around the corner on October 20 and 21. You will have the option of attending in-person or virtually. Look for more information from your child's teacher.
Health and COVID
We have had no quarantines this week. Please help keep students in school by sending your student to school in a mask and reminding him/her to wear it while indoors.
If your child is going to be absent from school for any reason, please contact the front office at 685-2195. If your child is ill, please also fill out the health form on the District webpage.
As always, thank you for sharing your children with us. Have a great weekend!

The Return of Walking School Bus
Walking School Bus this morning was an INCREDIBLE success! We had more students there than I've ever seen in my five years here! The kiddos also LOVED the pancakes. A big "thank you" to Paula Faucette, Nutrition Services Director, for making that happen for our kiddos today.
