We hope you are having a safe, warm, and fun few days off. We have received a few questions about how the unplanned time off will affect the rest of the school year.
Snow Days: Every year we build 6 snow days into the school calendar. This means that we can have 6 weather-related closures without having to make any days up.
Lower School Academics: When we return, lower school classes will pick up where they left off.
Upper School Academics: There may be an increased number of assessments next week as students will be completing tests/quizzes that were scheduled for this week. Many teachers will be utilizing open-book evaluations to maintain pacing and save students time that would have been spent preparing/studying at home.
Remember that dual enrollment classes have continued, and are unaffected by days off at MCS. If you have any questions about assessments upon our return, please reach out to Mrs. Wallace.
Next Week: While tomorrow (Friday) is still up in the air, it looks like we will be back to normal next week. Here are a few important dates to keep in mind.
