Happy Thanksgiving! It is hard to believe we are at Thanksgiving Break. As a reminder, there is no school Wednesday, November 25 – Friday, November 27. We are planning to be back on campus Monday, November 30th.

While we had one staff member and one student test positive for COVID this past weekend, there was not a widespread impact (all those who had close contact with the individuals were notified). When we return to school on Monday, November 30, we will be in Phase 3. As stated last week, our desire is to remain on campus. However, if there is an increase in COVID or quarantine cases, those plans could change. As always, we will keep you posted.

Reminder: If your student is exposed to someone outside your home with COVID, they are required to quarantine for 14 days from their last contact with the individual who tested positive.

COVID-19 Questions: If you have COVID-related questions or updates over Thanksgiving Break, please email us at CovidInfo@mcstn.org.

School Spirit Store: Our school spirit store will be open for a few more days. You have until 11:59 on Sunday, November 29th to place your order. The Spirit store is a good opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts and support the ministry of MCS at the same time. You can access the store HERE.

Outdoor Christmas Market: Our PTO is hosting a Christmas market this year for our community.  It will take place on December 5 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Come out and enjoy some hot chocolate and Christmas shopping!

Spring Play: The following is a message from our Drama Department for students in grades 3-12:

            “Come Be our Guest….Again!  It’s time for Take Two of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast!”

            We are hopeful that those who participated in the production last year will join us again this year.  If so, there will be no participation fee and you do not need to audition unless you want to pursue one of the four open spots.  This year, we are ONLY auditioning for the following roles:  Beast, Maurice, Gaston, and Belle.  Those who were not cast in last year’s production will need to audition and you will be charged a participation fee of $150.

            IMPORTANT:  Anyone wishing to participate in this year’s production will need to complete the Google Form Beauty and the Beast 2021 by Monday, December 7.

Have a great Thanksgiving Break!

We are wrapping up another week of on-campus instruction. Thankfully, we have not heard of any new COVID cases among our faculty, staff, or students. In fact, many students who were in quarantine last week were able to make their way back to campus this week.

As I stated last week, we know things can change in a moment’s notice, but we are thankful for the opportunity to be on campus. Continue praying for the health of our faculty, staff, students, and families.

Thanksgiving Break: Due to Thanksgiving Break, school will be closed Wednesday, November 25th – Friday, November 27th. We are planning to be back on campus Monday, November 30th.

Reminder: If your student is exposed to someone with COVID outside your home, they are required to quarantine for 14 days from their last contact with the individual who tested positive.

COVID-19 Questions: If you have COVID-related questions, please email us at CovidInfo@mcstn.org.

Athletics: In order for our school to be able to participate in athletics this winter (basketball & cheerleading), there are some adjustments we are having to make.        

  • Temperatures will be taken at the door.
  • Masks will be required.
  • We will bring in additional bleachers for High School games in order to provide more room for social distancing.
  • Concessions will only sell pre-packaged food.
     

School Spirit Store: Our school spirit store up and running. This online store will be open until 11:59 on Sunday, November 29th. Be sure to place your orders before the deadline. The Spirit store is a good opportunity to purchase Christmas gifts and support the ministry of MCS at the same time. You can access the store HERE.

Bridge to the Future: Be on the lookout for our Bridge to the Future annual fund letter. Be praying about how you can contribute to the ministry of MCS and help us continue our pursuit of academic excellence.

Have a great weekend!

We are thankful for a successful first week back on campus. Thankfully, we have not heard of any new COVID cases in our student body this week. We still have a number of students who have been finishing their time in quarantine; however, we expect many of them to start making their way back to campus over the course of the next week.

We know things can change in a moment’s notice, but we are thankful for the opportunity to be back on campus. 

Reminder:  Please do not send your student(s) to school if they have symptoms of COVID as described by the CDC.

Temperature Checks: The CDC has updated their recommendations for schools and no longer recommends daily temperature checks for students. You can read their full explanation HERE. As a result, we will discontinue daily temperature checks for students starting on Monday. 

- We will still conduct temperature checks for all those who check in at the main office. 

- We will still conduct temperature checks at athletic practices and events (per the TSSAA).

COVID-19 Questions: If you have COVID-related questions, please email us at CovidInfo@mcstn.org.

School Spirit Store: We are excited to have our school spirit store up and running. This online store will be open until 11:59 on Sunday, November 29th.
