Family Update from Guest Principal Lori Hoover
Dear MRCS families,

At this time, by order of the governor, all school buildings are closed until May 1. Beginning March 30, lessons will be distance delivered by MRCS staff. You have received the first week's packet and parents will be contacting families during the week of March 30.

Try setting up a ‘school schedule’ that fits your family. For example: School time is 9am – 12:00 every day. There are numerous ways to set your schedule; reach out to your classroom teacher if you need other ideas or work. Please do not hesitate to contact us after spring break if you have question regarding the work. We want students to continue learning and reduce the stress for families!

We will be updating parents through email, Class Dojo, on the MRCS Facebook page as well as the school website as we learn new information.

Thank you for being supportive of the staff and students at MRCS! Stay healthy and wash your hands.

Food Distribution Information
PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE FOR DISTRIBUTION SITES.
This is due to preparing a higher volume of meals and the need for adequate time to do that prior to distribution.

For families who use school food services, the Juneau School District is providing free food every day. Food is available for any child 18 or younger (including siblings) through a partnership between the Juneau School District, NANA Management Services, and First Student.

First Student buses will set up in parking lots of designated schools. First Student staff will greet students and provide pre-packaged breakfast and lunch meals. Small groups will maintain social distancing as students receive their take-home meals.

Beginning March 23rd, meals will be available at the following distribution sites:
**Please note the updated service time**
Gastineau Elementary School 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.
Cedar Park Apartments 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Harborview Elementary 9 a.m. - 12 pm
Glacier Valley Elementary School 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Riverbend Elementary School 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Dzantik’i Heeni Middle School 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Floyd Dryden Middle School 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

We are so grateful for the opportunity to help in this way.
MRCS Routine and Schedule Information
• Recess: All K-5 students have recess three times a day during the school day for 15 minutes each.

• Specials: “Specials” refers to a time every day that students go to library, counseling, music, and physical education class. Each class has one special for 45 minutes Monday-Thursday.

• Morning Routine: Prior to school starting, students either go into the gym for breakfast (starting at 7:30) or to the playground to play outside (at 7:40). Once the bell rings at 7:55, students walk to class. If students arrive after 8am they should stop by the office for a tardy slip before going to class.

• After School Routine: At the end of the day students are walked to the buses, RALLY, or the parent pick up zone.

• Unity Assemblies: Unity Assemblies are school-wide assemblies that take place in the gym every Friday at 8am. During Unity Assemblies we sing, celebrate, and build community. Parents are invited to attend!
  • Need to get a message to your student?
    Please call with any after school instructions or messages for students before 1:30 pm to ensure we can deliver them before the end of the school day. Thank you!
  • Keep your information updated!
    If any of your phone numbers or emergency contact numbers change, please let the school office know as soon as possible.
  • If you receive a call from the school…
    If you receive a call from anywhere in the building, the phone number that appears on your phone will be the main line. Please take a moment to check for messages before calling back. Unfortunately we do not have a way to know who called you and would like to connect you to the correct person!
