FIRST WEEK SUCCESS!

We have survived the first week of school during Covid-19! It was great to see all the students back on campus where they belong.


That isn't to say that there weren't bumps along the way and there may be more as we navigate through all the changes, but overall, it went well. Attitudes have been positive and gracious from everyone.


As always, we are in this TOGETHER!

PAPERWORK DUE BY SEPTEMBER 4

Students were given a packet of paperwork this week. It is due no later than Friday, September 4.


**The COPPA/FERPA form has to be submitted in order for students to be given their Chromebook and their password.

**Make sure the handbook form indicating participation in the drug test is on file in either the MMS Office for MMS students or the MHS Office for MHS students. Failure to comply with the drug test will exempt students from participating in athletics, band, on-campus clubs, Prom, Colors Day, etc.

RECYCLING UPDATE

Big picture

As you may recall, we started looking at ways to reduce operating expenses mid-year 18-19. By using data to monitor trash levels and our need for dumpsters, bidding service contracts, and recycling, and seeking ways to reduce waste, our teams have reduced waste costs substantially.


Results:

  • Waste costs were reduced in 18-19 by 20% from the previous year, saving $6,852.
  • Waste costs were reduced In 19-20 by 47% from the previous year, saving $13,033.
  • Total waste cost saving so far equals $19,885.


Abilities Unlimited is resuming their weekly cardboard pick up in the community. Please break down corrugated cardboard and place it in the totes NEXT TO THE RECYCLE BINS for their pick up. They bundle and sell the cardboard, generating income and jobs for those with disabilities. We LOVE our community partnerships!


This also reduces our recycling costs. Other ways you can help with recycling:

Remind students that paper, cardboard, tin and aluminum cans, and empty bottles recycle.


These items DO NOT RECYCLE:

  • Tissues
  • Items with food residue
  • Waxey coated milk cartons
  • Plastic bags and plastic wrappers
  • Glass
  • Styrofoam
  • Hard plastics other than #1 and #2 plastics
