MSA Parent Update

May 15, 2018

Congratulations to the Class of 2018

On Monday, everyone at MSA bid farewell to the class of 2018. The night was filled with smiles, cheers and tears, as our students begin to spread their wings and reach out to new adventures in their lives. From college to the military, work to fun, the class of 2018 will achieve great things. We are so proud of them!!


The class of 2018 is also MSA's largest graduating class, with well over half of them being ORIGINALS or students who started at MSA as 6th grade students and made it through to graduation.


No matter where the road leads them, where their future takes them, we are confident that they have the skills and knowledge to be all they can be. With every graduating class, everyone at MSA has mixed emotions. These students have been a part of our lives for so long. We are glad to see them go and take on the world, but sad to see them leave at the same time.


Good luck, class of 2018!! You will always be a part of our MSA Family.

Last Day of School - May 29, 2018

It has been a year of exciting events, amazing performances both on the stage and in the classroom, and great representations in local, statewide and national competitions. We are so proud of the work our students have done this year, and we look forward to next year!!


May 29th will be an early release day at MSA. We will be dismissing all students at 2:30.


An important note, backpacks are not allowed on the last day of school. Please do not send your child to school with a backpack on May 29th. Backpacks brought to school will be confiscated in the morning and returned after school if a student brings a backpack to school.


MSA dismisses early ONLY on the last day of school.


Please contact us if you have any questions... thanks!!

Mark Your Calendars - August 2018

The 2018-2019 school year starts on August 13, 2018. Please mark your calendars and make sure your child is ready for the upcoming school year!!

PARENT PICK UP REMINDERS

It is important to note that the proper pick-up procedure at the end of the day is through the parent pick-up circle at the front of the school property. Picking up your children off of school property is not safe, and it violates our neighbors' private property areas.


The entrance of Riviera Dunes, the bank, rehab center, the furniture store or the Courtney are not places that students may be picked up at the end of the day.


We have great relationships with our neighbors and we can't interfere with their businesses or the daily function of their clients. All surrounding businesses have been advised to call local law enforcement if they continue to have problems with parents picking up on their property.


Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Uniforms

Every year students outgrow uniforms, or move up to high school uniforms. We have a great need at MSA for used uniforms. Please consider donating uniforms you don't need any longer to the school so we can help families in need.


Whether you outgrew your uniform shirts or bottoms, or you have graduated or moved from Middle School to High School, we appreciate any uniforms that are donated to the school. Your generosity assists others greatly.

Attention 6th Grade Students - Shot Updates Required BEFORE starting 7th Grade

All 6th Grade Students must get more shots before 7th Grade.


The State of Florida requires proof of immunization for all students entering 7th grade each year. This proof must be on the official State of Florida Immunization Form (DH680... the Blue Card) which is obtained from your doctor's office or the Health Department. The following immunizations must be documented on this form:


* Tetanus, Diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Tdap) - This is the update shot that you need for 7th Grade.

* Hepatitis B vaccine series

* Varicella vaccine or the year of disease

* Two doses of MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella)


Please see your doctor or the Health Department for more information and to assure that your child has met these requirements. This documentation must be submitted to the school before the first day of school next year (August 10). Students will not be allowed to come to school until these shot requirements are met. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
