    Dear Parents,

    Just a reminder that on Friday afternoon, Florida Commissioner of Education Richard Corcoran, instructed all Florida public school districts to extend their spring breaks by an extra week – MMS will follow suit. That being the case, MMS will be closed from March 16th – 27th.

    Currently the plan is to reopen schools on March 30th.

    We recognize the difficulty this will create for families, but based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, this step is needed to help safeguard the health and well-being of students, staff and the community. Thank you for your support! Please keep an eye out for updates via email.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to email at any time – we will be monitoring emails daily. If your child has anything at the school that needs to be picked up, you can stop by tomorrow between 10:00-1:00.
