Important Message about Social Media Challenge

Here Comes the Bus

Here Comes The Bus (HCTB) is a helpful new app that MGSD is using to help all bus-riding families get more information on their child's transportation to and from school. HCTB will help parents to:

  • See the location of your child’s bus both before and after school

  • Confirm that your child’s bus has arrived at the bus stop, at school or both;

  • Get information on substitute buses, or when we have important information to relay;

  • Allow for MMS to communicate any delays or changes to your child's middle school bus routes during the day;

  • Receive email notifications OR push notifications to iPhone / Android devices.

MMS is looking for ALL bus-riding families to sign up for and use HCTB before October 1st. Please use this document for account set-up assistance, or email Mr. Kosal or Ms. McGrath at MMS to get more information.

Quarantine Content Support Schedule

Mooresville Middle School has created a Quarantine Content Support Schedule to assist students who have been quarantined for an extended period of time. You can view the schedule here. Our teachers are offering 1-3 sessions of virtual tutoring each week to help your students stay on top of their work. If you have any questions, please feel to reach out to the school or your child’s teachers. Thanks!

Mooresville Public Library

Fall is upon us and there is plenty going on at the Mooresville Public Library. The teen department has re-opened its in-person volunteer program, Teens Give Back. We will continue to offer virtual volunteer hours as well. Further information for teens interested in volunteering for the library can be found on our teen page Here.
