Here is this week’s MCS update.
This has been a little bit of a hectic start to the second semester; however, we are thankful to be on campus for in-person learning. Here are a few things you need to know.
Elementary Student Absences: As a reminder, if your elementary student is out sick for multiple days, you are able to pick up student work to take home at the end of the school day. During the day, our teachers are focused on the students in their classrooms and their normal duties and responsibilities.
2022-2023 Academic Calendar: We have completed and released next year’s school calendar. You can view it HERE.
Mission Trips: We are excited about our plans for this year’s mission trips. Our sophomores will be headed to Big Creek Missions in Kentucky on February 21-25. Our seniors will be going to The Dominican Republic on May 17-24. Please be praying for these trips.
STEM Building: The construction of our STEM building is continuing. You will hear much more about this soon. Be on the lookout for a video update, opportunities to help, as well as how we plan to use this new building.
Have a great weekend!

Happy New Year! I hope you were able to enjoy your Christmas break. As we launch into the new year and into the second semester, here are a few things you need to know.
New Faculty and Staff: We are excited to welcome two new employees to MCS. Matt Fishbaugh has joined our team as a part-time Web and Social Media Director. Barbara Roark has joined our faculty as a part-time math teacher. We are excited to have both on our team.
Inclement Weather Decisions: This time of year there is always the possibility of inclement weather. While we try to avoid delaying, dismissing early, or canceling school, there are times when that decision needs to be made. Please understand that due to the high number of student drivers, we try to err on the side of caution. This means that there may be times that we delay, dismiss early, or cancel due to the forecast of snow or ice and the forecast ends up being wrong. Sometimes this is simply unavoidable. We appreciate you understanding this reality.
If there is a need to delay or cancel school due to weather, we will work to announce that decision in plenty of time for your family to make necessary arrangements. Announcements will be sent out via email, our text alert system, posted on social media, and on local news stations.
Open Position at MCS: We are in the process of looking for a full-time custodian. If you are interested, you can learn more about the position on the Employment section of our website.
COVID Policy Adjustments: Based on new information from the CDC and the state of Tennessee, we are making some adjustments to our COVID policy. We will send that information out on Friday. As always, if you have any COVID related questions, you can email us at COVIDinfo@mcstn.org.
Have a great week!
