Machetanz is participating in PLC Mondays. School will start one hour later on Mondays. Buses will arrive to pick up students on hour later than their Tuesday - Friday schedule.
Students should should not be left at the school unsupervised by a parent or guardian prior to 10am as our doors will not open prior to 10am. This is for your students safety as all staff will be in PLC meetings.

Machetanz Parents/Guardians Only Car Pool Facebook Group
Are you looking for a ride for your student or can help another family? A private facebook group has been created for Machetanz Families only. To help vet who is allowed in the group, there are three questions that must be answered.
School Dismissal Procedures
At this time, School Dismissal Manager is not working properly. Once it is, you should receive and email from School Dismissal Manager on how to create your account, check your students default pick up routine, and be able to make any changes needed on a daily basis. You will also be able to check in from the Pick Up line once the program is working correctly. We will send an email to parents once the program is working as it should be and will adjust our pick up procedures to the outdoor pick up line when all is ready. We had originally anticipated this change to take place for tomorrow, August 22nd but we are not confident that will happen. A text and email will go out when the system is ready. Until then please pick up in the classroom.
