January 14-27 Online Learning


Key Points Regarding Online Learning

  • All classes will move to online learning as of Friday, January 14, 2022
  • Students and staff will follow our regular daily school schedule 
  • Students will be expected to attend each class every hour starting with Advisory.
  • Classes are live synchronously. Students will log onto each scheduled Google Meet through Google Classroom
  • Families are strongly encouraged to keep their students home during online learning. 
    • Families have the option to have their student come to their school to participate in online learning.
    • Families do not need to formally notify their school whether they will learn online at home or school. However, so that MPS can plan for staffing coverage, we are asking families to fill out a survey by Sunday, Jan. 16, indicating whether you intend to send your child(ren) to school for in-person or online learning.
    • If your child is attending online learning in-person at school, be sure they bring a pair of headphones/earphones to use so they can participate online while on Google meets. 
  • All school staff will be working in the school building, unless on approved leave, isolation, quarantine or have other leave approved.
