School Entry/Arrival Reminders
SMCS has hired a COVID-19 screener. This person will be the main contact for SMCS parents to report symptoms and act as liaison with the City of Menasha and Winnebago County Health Departments to report and track cases. They will work closely with administrative assistants and principals to accurately record attendance, tracking of cases, and return to school for students.
Please continue to call your school office with any absences. Please call 920-716-7139 or email email@example.com to report symptoms, concerns, positive cases, exposures, etc.
