Just a reminder that hallways here at MMS are always Red Zones during the school day.  For safety reasons, iPads, cell phones, earbuds, headphones, etc. are not be used while walking in the halls.

Students being dropped off prior to the start of school will need to wait in either the Main Office lobby or M Lobby until 7:50 am.  Once the bell rings at 7:50 am students can proceed to 1st period class.

If you have an iPad issue or need something from the office, please make sure that you check in with your teacher before leaving the room. Please do not try to stop by to do this in between classes without checking in with your next period teacher.

Breakfast is available at MMS before school every day.  Breakfast is set up in PrideHallway, between the two gyms and works using the same payment system as lunch.  Items are available on a “grab and go” basis and taken to 1st period class, as long as students make it to 1st period by 8:00 am.   Students can come and pick up breakfast as soon as they get off the bus and can use the entrance doors in Pride Hallway from the playground area.

If you have a note to ride a different bus home, please turn it in to the main office by 8:00 in the morning, no later!!

If you have forgotten your iPad or your parent is dropping off money for anyreason, please come down and check in the office between class periods. We will not be interrupting class to call students down to pick up these items. Also, if you are expecting something to be dropped off, please come and check the office if you are not called down.
