Please note these four announcements for USD 364 students:

  5. Thanks, very much, to all our teachers and students for their hard work this school year. MES teachers and students have not missed a beat this week, and MJSHS teachers have rocked remote instruction and shown great flexibility as they made the difficult transition from one modality of instruction to the other and then back again. Our students are the BEST!!!

The last three months have gone well, and we have three more ahead of us that are likely going to be more of a challenge. We CAN do this! We do ask all patrons to do all they can do in order to help flatten the curve by always wearing a mask in public places and consider if you should attend events in areas of the state where the spread of the coronavirus is high.
