Updated guidelines for MC sporting events
Hello Raiders, I'm happy to be almost to the end of January and just now communicating about the weather. As you're aware, winter weather will soon be upon us. Several people have asked about whether a snow day will be used as a remote learning day. Should we need to cancel school for weather, Midwest Central plans to use a snow day just as we have in the past. We will not have any remote learning on those days. We will simply add them to the end of the year as we've done traditionally. I hope this clears up any confusion. Best, Dr. Todd Hellrigel
