Stay safe and healthy this Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving BannerHappy Thanksgiving to all our students, staff, and families! MPS wishes all of you a peaceful and relaxing Thanksgiving break.

After the many challenging months we have all faced, we hope everyone finds ways to celebrate their blessings safely. As COVID-19 continues to spike, we encourage everyone to limit gatherings, communicate with loved ones via phone and online meetings, and try new activities for remote fun.

The nonprofit website Parents Together is filled with tips for parents and families. Read their list of fun virtual activities for holiday ideas including games, friendly competitions, story time, and more.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers many tips to take part in the holiday weekend safely. Read the CDC recommendations before you host or attend a gathering.

We look forward to welcoming everyone back to virtual classes on Monday, November 30.
