Coffee with the Counselors

This is a brand new offering from the MSD of Martinsville counselors!

Notes From the Office

Only adults listed on a student's emergency contacts will be able to check out a student from school. In addition, anyone picking up a child, will need identification to be able to check a student out of school.

We have a limited number of extra winter supplies in the clinic. Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather because classes participate in outside recess even in cooler temperatures. If you need assistance in obtaining a coat, hat, or gloves for your child [children] please let us know.

Any changes to your child's dismissal procedure need to be sent to Mrs. McCartney before 3:00.

All volunteers must have a limited criminal history and sex offender background check performed by the school every year. This includes anyone interested in helping out with classroom parties. This process can take some time, so please contact the office well in advance of the school or classroom event.

What is Real Time Learning?

If it is known IN ADVANCE that school will be closed for a day or multiple days, families will be notified in advance and students will learn from home. Real Time Learning involves lessons being presented live to students via Zoom. After the lesson, teachers will be available to help students through their work while also answering questions. There will be two sessions: a morning Zoom for reading and an afternoon Zoom for math and other subjects.

These days will count as a full day of learning with the state and do not need to be made up. The following schedule will be used during REAL Time Learning:
