Balloons at School

Every now and then, a student may have balloons delivered to the school for a birthday or a celebration. If that occurs, the student will be able to have the balloons with them at lunch and then pick them up to go home at the end of the day. We are not able to have the balloons in classes or on the bus.

A few reminders for families

  • If your student has medication needs during the school day, an adult is required to bring in the medication in the original container. Students may not transport medication themselves.
  • Bus riders, please be outside and ready for the bus ten minutes prior to pick up time. Delays in arrival home should be expected for the first few weeks.
  • If your student plans to ride home on a different bus, please send a note with your student. The note must be turned in at the front office for approval at the beginning of the day.
  • Please make sure your student has money deposited in their lunch account. Free and reduced applications are available online or in our office. Breakfast is free for all students.
  • Students are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottle to school each day.
  • School supplies will be provided to students the first week of school.

Mark your calendars

Our 6th grade students will be attending Outdoor School this fall at Camp Namanu from October 30th - November 4th.

MESD is holding a Family Open House on Sunday, September 25. Although our students are attending Camp Namanu, it is not available for the Open House. Our sixth grade families are encouraged to attend the Open House held at Camp Collins (3001 SE Oxbow Parkway, Gresham, OR). Families also have the option to attend a virtual Open House.
