Hybrid students check in at 2:35

The Kansas State Department of Education requirement is to have a once a day check in on any day students are learning from home. (This does not include "C" day.)

Example: I come to school on Monday and Tuesday but I am learning from home on Thursday and Friday so on Thursday and Friday I need to Zoom with my 8th hour teacher at 2:35. We offer this opportunity for your student to have face to face contact each day with a teacher. On their at home learning day this is done via Zoom. A student can Zoom in from their MacBook or from a cell phone. If your student does not show up they are marked absent in Skyward.

From MTMS PTA

For several years our PTA sold cookie dough as a fundraiser. Last year the decision was made to have a direct donation fundraiser where 100% of donated money goes to our school. The money donated helps pays for field trips, 8th grade Worlds of Fun trip, items for the Wolf Track Cart, Teacher Appreciation Week and teacher grants. Please consider donating to our "Just Give It" fund.
