Dear MMI Families,

The MMI Faculty and Staff are diligently working this week on the path forward for the remainder of the school year.   We plan to unveil what online learning will look like later in the week. Rest assured we will move to online platforms so that we can continue to connect with all our students and parents. Your health and safety are first and foremost in our minds, so we want to try to create the same supportive environment we have on campus in the virtual world.  The process will take time but we will be clear and transparent with communication and expectations.  We want our students to know we are there for them and committed to their learning. Please look for an email from Justin Vincent, Academic Dean, later in the week outlining the online learning process.

We know that emotional support will be important at this time as well. Cheryl Bayo, our School Counselor, and Lisa Ferry, Dean of Students, will be available through Google Hangout Meetings to connect with students. We will be in contact with times and availability as well.   

In the meantime, if your student needs to gather materials from lockers, please come to campus this week (see schedule below).  We will also have loaner laptops available for students who do not have a computer at home.  

Tuesday, March 17 from 2 pm-7 pm for Middle School students
Wednesday, March, 18 from 2 pm-7 pm for Upper School students

The safety and health of all MMI families is our top priority. The decision to migrate online has been made in preparation for long-term disruption and out of an abundance of caution.  We deeply appreciate your partnership

Sincerely,
Justin Kleinheider
Head of School

Dear MMI Families,

I appreciate everyone’s understanding as we navigate through the COVID-19 outbreak.  First and foremost, stay vigilant and safe during the extended break until classes resume on campus March 30 by following CDC guidelines to prevent illness. Our school community’s safety is always our top priority.

All school activities, practices, and events scheduled for the next two weeks are canceled until March 30.   We will be in contact about rescheduled events, like Open House, Honor Society Inductions, and more.   We are working through the potential for internet-based learning to help facilitate the education process and contingencies for a longer break should circumstances dictate the need. 

The MMI Main Office will be open during the week from 9 am to 2 pm, so please call if you have questions or concerns but families should stay home at this point. Our goal is to stay connected with you and act as a resource in these challenging times.  We are happy to help and partner with you as always. 


Sincerely, 
Justin Kleinheider
Head of School

MMI Preparatory School will extend spring break and classes will resume on campus on Monday, March 30, 2020.  Please continue to check email for important updates and information.

Thursday, March 12, 2020

Dear MMI Families,

The global situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve rapidly. During spring break we have monitored the situation with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. We are taking the utmost precautions with the sanitization of the campus in preparing for students to return. 

Spring break will be extended for students by two days (Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17) with plans to resume classes on Wednesday, March 18.  We will use the time to work on extra cleaning and sanitization before the start of school as well as prepare for continuity with online learning if the need should arise in the near future. All school activities, events, and practices are canceled for March 16 and March 17. The Honor Society Inductions scheduled for March 19 are postponed for a date TBD. Families who have traveled internationally over spring break were asked to keep their students home for at least 5 school days from the date of their return to the United States.

We encourage families to review and practice CDC precautions to prevent illness at home in an effort to remain vigilant in staying healthy.  Remember, when school is back in session, if your son or daughter has a fever or signs of being ill, please have them see a doctor to be evaluated and cleared for return to school. Medical clearances should also be sent to the Main Office. 

As precautions and guidelines evolve, so will our plan for the school year. Please remember to check email and read all information coming from the School.  I appreciate your patience and understanding as we set the best course for the remaining months of the school year. Our partnership protects our community.

COVID-19 Student Travel Protocol - Monday, March 2, 2020

Families should follow the safe travel precautions as well as the guidelines to avoid nonessential travel to countries listed on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website.

Effective immediately and until further notice, if you plan on traveling internationally, please email the Dean of Students, Mrs. Lisa Ferry (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to let us know your destination and travel dates. While we do not want to intrude on family travel plans, gathering this information will help us to understand potential risks and to take steps to protect the health and welfare of everyone at MMI. 

Where we reasonably determine that circumstances may present undue risk, MMI may require up to a 14-day quarantine off campus before a student returns to school.

Sincerely,

Justin Kleinheider
Head of School
