We are excited to announce that Assistant Principal Terri Thornton will now be known as Principal Thornton! She will take over in the 2017-2018 school year for Dr. D'Amico, who is retiring June 30th.
After June 15th, kits may be purchased online through EduKit’s Last Chance program until July 11th. Last Chance kits will be delivered to your home shortly before school begins. There is an additional fee for Last Chance kits.
MCS is excited to announce that we are approaching the end of our first 1:M Initiative, and over the past three years, the program has changed the way our teachers teach and our students learn. For the 17-18 school year, all high school staff and students will receive a new MacBook Air. We will begin collecting existing MacBooks in May and the deployment of new Macbooks will begin in the summer. Additional information will be provided by your child's school prior to the pick-up process.
There has been great dialogue about allowing the Class of 2017 the opportunity to purchase a MacBook if desired. After extensive review of the legislation regulations that allow public institutions to resale devices to students, it would not be fiscally responsible for us to sell a device to seniors at this time and impossible to sell to general public. We are working with legislators to change the law that would allow this for the future.
