For the first quarter of the school year, MMSD is expanding its mask requirement in elementary (grades 4K - 5) and middle school (grades 6-8) communities to now include masking outdoors as well as indoors and on buses.

Dear MMSD Families, 

School begins next week, and I hope you and your child are excited about the new school year. Earlier this summer, we announced our plans for students to begin the school year learning in person, five days per week. Today, I am writing to provide an important update for our 4K-5th grade families who have been asking about virtual learning options for students.
