Parent Laptop Informational Meeting The annual parent laptop meeting is Thursday, August 26 at 7:00 pm via ZOOM. Please plan to attend if you have a child entering the middle school or are new to the middle school. Meeting link: https://networkmaine.zoom.us/j/83961654945 Additional information is also available on the MCMS Parent Technology Website: https://sites.google.com/maranacook.com/mcmsparent-tech/home
On Thursday, June 10, the middle school is collecting laptops from all students. It is imperative that devices, carrying bag, device covers, and chargers are all returned on that day. Anything not turned in will result in a phone call to a parent to have it returned to school that day, and if the item is lost, you will be getting a bill from RSU 38. Please start to make a plan so that we can have a seamless technology collection on June 10!

Dear MCMS Students and Families This letter is to follow up on the notification Superintendent Charette sent today. A middle school student has tested positive for COVID-19. All students and staff who were considered a primary contact of this student have been contacted. As always, please monitor yourself/your student for signs and symptoms. Call a health care provider if symptoms start. It is important that you call a healthcare facility before you show up in person. Stay home if you are sick.

The school will be providing breakfast and lunch for anyone in need, available for pick up on Tuesdays and Fridays, 2-3pm outside of the high school. This is available for every student. If you will need this everyday, please email either Jen Hall: email@example.com or myself: firstname.lastname@example.org An email was sent to families with the schedule we will be following for Remote Learning.

Important Message From LifeTouch (publishers of the MCMS Yearbook): Dear Families, Yearbooks are a tradition for schools throughout the US and Canada. At Lifetouch, we are humbled to be a part of providing that tradition. We know how important yearbooks are - especially in times like these. We want to take a moment to acknowledge this year’s delayed yearbook delivery is not what you, as our customers expect, nor deserve, from Lifetouch. We want you to be aware that our primary yearbook production facilities are located in some of the states that are being hardest hit by the pandemic. We have prioritized the safety of our employees; and we are following all state and local health guidelines to create a safe working environment. Social distancing requirements mean that there are fewer people available to work at any given time. These changes have impacted our production schedule in meaningful ways. We realize this has created a lot of frustration since we are currently unable to provide an estimated delivery time frame for your school’s yearbook. Please know our teams are doing everything possible to get your yearbook to you. Shipping is monitored daily. As soon as your yearbook ships, your school will receive tracking information so they can arrange to distribute the yearbooks to the students and families in a manner that is best suited for everyone’s safety. As we navigate COVID-19, our intent is to provide you with a yearbook that your student will treasure for a lifetime. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time together. Sincerely, Lifetouch
Everyone who ordered a yearbook will be receiving it. Unfortunately, Lifetouch is behind in their printing due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. We apologize wholeheartedly for the delay. Hopefully, we will be in touch soon!
