A Message from the Administrator

Greeting MCS Families,

I have some exciting news about curriculum changes for our K-5 math and ELA (English and Language Arts) curriculum. Our K-5 teachers have spent many hours researching curriculum that would be best for our students in the next school year. A clear choice for these grades was the Envision Math and MyView for ELA.

Our curriculum committee met throughout the Spring reviewing materials and attending webinars. They felt that this curriculum will best meet our students' needs at all levels. In addition, grades 3-5 purchased the Elevate Science curriculum, which provides lessons and experiments that are in alignment with our new science standards.

I appreciate all of the hard work and research of our K-5 teachers to provide the best curriculum to give our students a new and exciting way to learn. I appreciate all of our students, families, and staff more than you know.

Mask Update

Greetings MCS Families,

Governor Little, in his return to Idaho, announced this morning that he removed the Executive Order placed by Lt. Governor McGeachin. In this latest news we will continue along with the other public schools in Moscow, our protocol of mandating wearing of masks throughout the rest of the school year.

Here is the link for his whole statement:


I appreciate your support throughout this everchanging year. Our students, teachers, and families have shown patience and understanding that as your administrator, I am grateful for. I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!!!

Lunch Program Update for the 21-22 School Year

Lunch for 2021-2022

In an attempt to soften the impact for all the students in our community, during the 2021-2022 school year the MCS lunch program will continue to be run by the MSD under the SSO program.

What this means for our students is that free lunch will be available to all students daily, in the same capacity it has been this year. Qualifying for the free and reduced lunch program will have no bearing on the cost of your meal. The free meals will be available Sept - June to all students in attendance at our school.

We are happy to be able to continue to provide our students with these meals as we know this pandemic has affected all the members of our community in some way. This decision has a pretty decent financial impact to the school as we do not have a way to generate revenue for the program to help offset the costs associated with running the program like we do when we are able to run our own program. As a result we are reaching out to see if there are any parents who might be interested in volunteering their time to help serve lunch to our students during our lunch time which would be approximately 1.25-1.5 hrs a day. If you are interested or have any questions regarding our need, please reach out to our business manager Lashelle Wilson- lwilson@moscowcharterschool.org. We are looking for 2 parents a day but if we had multiple parents who wanted to help out we could set up a rotation so that you wouldn't have to serve everyday.
