Dear MLP Students and Families,

We are excited to have our PPCD, RISE, PreK, Kinder, and 1st Grade students on campus tomorrow. Our campus is ready and our faculty and staff are beyond thrilled to be welcoming students in person. It is going to be a great week!

As a reminder for all other students who selected the in person option will return to campus during the following weeks. 2nd and 3rd grade students will start on Tuesday, October 13th and 4th and 5th grade students will start on Monday, October 19th.

Be sure to wear your uniform, wear a mask, and bring a refillable water bottle if you are starting in person. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you as you continue your virtual learning.

Thank you again to our amazing MLP Families & Students. Our faculty and staff have been overwhelmed by your encouragement, grace, and understanding as we have navigated the start of this school year. We are so grateful to serve a community that is filled with families that are so kind and supportive. While we all wish circumstances were different in terms of the health and safety of Covid, we are thankful to be in this with all of you as we partnerin the best interest of students.

We will see you tomorrow- in person or online!
