Summer School Announcement
Friday, February 22, 2019 12:45 PM

MPS has just released details for summer school registration.  View the full details here.

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are gearing up for summer session!

This year we are asking parents and guardians to complete a fillable PDF application to register their child for summer school. Why is it preferred that you complete a fillable PDF? Because the data is easily exported to a master spreadsheet. This spreadsheet is what will contain pertinent information for transportation, principals, nurses, etc and helps us to manage the student's data more effectively.

If you do not have a computer, please see the front office at your child's school for a paper copy to complete. This paper copy is to be returned to the front office.
