During the e-learning period teachers will be available between the hours of 8:10 AM and 2:50 PM to answer questions regarding assignments. Students will be able to pick up Chromebooks, internet devices, and other items needed for the e-learning week during the food distribution time on Monday, January 18 at the school. The time for that distribution will be from 11 AM until 12:00 PM. Food will be distributed at the Mecca School on Monday, January 18 from 11:30 AM until 12:00 PM. Five meals will be provided during the Monday distribution at Montezuma and Mecca. If you need meals, please complete the survey on the Food Service site or call your school to let them know. At the time of this message, the quarantine does not appear to impact the 6th grade girls basketball program, so games and practices will continue unless you are notified otherwise by the coach or the school. Thank you for your patience and understanding with us as we navigate this season of illness.

From the Corporation Nurse: Parents/guardians and students: I hope you all have a Happy and Healthy Holiday break! If you student becomes ill and is tested for Covid over break, please send me an email to let me know. Even though we will not be in session, I will still be in contact with our local health department and will still be tracking any Covid cases we may have in our corporation. Please send me an email with the date your student first started having symptoms, what day they were tested, and then results once you get those back. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you have received a letter from me regarding your student needing immunizations, please try to get those completed during the break. The State of Indiana still requires that our students meet immunization requirements or they can be excluded from school. We have had enough student absences so I would like to avoid anyone having to be missing school because of immunizations. If you don’t remember what your student might need, please email me and I will let you know. This includes all Virtual students. Thank you for your help! Nurse Marla
