Our Giving Feast Was a Huge Success

Students collected 858 jars of peanut butter for families in need this year. Wow!! Your amazing support for this project helped provide the Red Barn with a much needed food staple for their Christmas baskets. A huge "Thanks" goes out to Mrs. Hall and her 4th graders for organizing, collecting, and counting all of the jars. Be on the lookout for the reward dance off between Mr. Spahr and Ms. Irvin's class.

Winter Weather Conditions

Weather decisions are made by a district team who monitor conditions closely both through technology as well as by driving actual roads throughout the district.


When determining a delay, early dismissal, or cancellation of school, countywide weather conditions are reviewed. In addition, we utilize the National Weather Service website @ www.nws.noaa.gov/om/cold/wind_chill.shtml as well as a private product called Weather Sentry.

1.Staff/ parents will be notified through an all-call using School Messenger. (Telephone numbers are generated from our Skyward database. At your convenience, please check Skyward to ensure your telephone # is up-to-date for this academic year.)


2.Communication will be added to the district's website (msdofmartinsville.org) and social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, (MSD Martinsville)
