Reopening Updates / Reminders:
As you know, we’ve extended our hybrid schedule through the weeks of 10/26, 11/2 and 11/9 to make sure the County actually stays 'Orange'...unfortunately, it’s looking like Placer County could get placed back into ‘Red’ next week. If this happens, we may have to adjust (yet again) our upcoming calendar. Placer County levels can be tracked at this website: https://www.placer.ca.gov/DocumentCenter/View/46267/dashboard?bidId=#cases
Please continue completing our DAILY symptom check before bringing your child to school. This is available here: https://c42096c6-2e4d-493d-bdff-126f872232dd.filesusr.com/ugd/4b8266_fb4006e5756b486680d8819f0d09d41f.pdf
Compared to other schools within the county, we haven’t had to deal with any COVID cases on campus for staff or students. While I recognize that probability says we will at some point and as our published plans show, we’re prepared to deal with it if we have to, things as simple as our DAILY symptom check help reduce the odds of this occurring.
The USDA announced recently that free meals have been extended through the school year (June 2021). MMCA will only receive reimbursement for meals served, so please pick up your orders (or don’t order them if you know you won’t be able to pick them up). Also, remember to fill out the free or reduced price application form (even the income portion). The application can be found here: https://c42096c6-2e4d-493d-bdff-126f872232dd.filesusr.com/ugd/4b8266_991b84cfd9474bd5aced4f09bb25a53c.pdf
If you’re new to Boonli (our lunch ordering system), instructions for setting up an account can be found on our website under the hot lunch link https://www.mmcharter.org/hot-lunch. After you set up your child’s account you will need to email Denise at firstname.lastname@example.org to change the status from paid to free.
Lunch Recess / ASC Staff
Assuming we’re allowed to open up to “5 days a week” again, with our extra lunch periods as a part of our COVID mitigation plan, we’re looking for more PT staff to help us out. If this is something you may be interested in, please contact Mr. Baldonade at email@example.com.
We are doing much better with Emergency Card collection. For clarification we needed parents to do both the Data Confirmation in Aeries (https://aeriesportal.placercoe.k12.ca.us/Parent/MMCA/LoginParent.aspx) AND print and sign the Emergency Card. We need it signed so we know that a parent reviewed the contact and medical information If your child’s is still outstanding, please sign the copy we sent home last week and return it to the office or your child’s teacher.
Virtual Pumpkin Decorating Contest!
In lieu of the Harvest Festival, our PTA is hosting a virtual pumpkin decorating contest. There will be classroom themes and a prize for the winner of each grade level! Please see the flyer below for more information.
