We are excited to welcome all families to the new school year. We are ready to provide a safe and nurturing environment to our students. Our main priority, as educators and schools staff, is the safety and social well-being of our students.
During the first week of school and throughout the year, teachers and school staff will be developing trusting relationship with their students and families. We will be alert and vigilant about our students’ attendance and overall engagement. MPS staff will practice cultural humility and focus on learning from students and families about their interests and immediate needs. 
Please be assured that MPS and our school does not collect or keep citizenship and immigration status information or enforce immigration laws, so we cannot and will not provide information to any government agencies. The U.S. Supreme Court has established that public schools must be accessible to all children regardless of immigration status. We want and welcome all our students. Please contact the school principal, Ellen Shulman, if you have any questions.
