MPA Spirit Week—March 13-17, 2017!


Winter is Here!! Closings and Delays!!

For MPA students who ride Statewide buses, there is at times confusion as to what happens if one district is delayed and another one isn’t. Is MPA delayed? Is the bus delayed?

FIRST THING: Know your child’s Statewide Bus Route! Click below to download a copy of the morning and afternoon routes:

Statewide Busing Morning Routes.

SECOND: Check this web site, the MPA Facebook Page, local TV stations (Channel 12, 10, 6 or Fox-64) or local radio stations to see if MPA is open. You can also check Operation Snowball

 

THIRD: Download and save the MPA Winter Weather policy (below), so you know how to handle delays, early dismissals, and closings due to weather


Field Trip to LAUNCH!!

NEW FIELD TRIP DESTINATION! Because we can no longer visit SkyZone for our semi-annual trampoline-park field trip (due to changes in their hours), we will be visiting LAUNCH! (in Warwick) next month.

Visiting a new park means that we need all parents and guardians to complete NEW Waiver Forms specific to LAUNCH! Please click on the Launch Waiver Form below to download a PDF (there are also instructions as to how to complete it). Paper copies of the forms will also be sent home soon if you choose to complete them that way.

Once completed they must be returned to us no later than Friday, May 6. Learn more about LAUNCH! by visiting LAUNCH! (Click here)
