Hello MGSD families!

Yesterday was officially the last day of the 2019 - 2020 school year and what a year it was!  We know it did not end in the way any of us expected, but our staff, students, and parents took a bad situation, worked together, and made it all so much better.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Remote Learning Plan Survey

In a Blackboard Connect email that you will receive this evening, there will be links to surveys asking for feedback on what you feel we did well and where we need to improve should remote/virtual learning be necessary in the future.  This feedback will help us as we work on the Remote Learning Plan that we have to submit to the state in July.  Please take the applicable survey specific to your child's school level. If you have students at multiple school levels, we would greatly appreciate you taking the time to submit for each school level as appropriate.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

School Nutrition Information

We are excited to announce that we will continue to serve meals to students for pickup at Park View and South Elementary Schools through the summer!  Please note we will not be able to deliver meals via busses this summer but are working with a local group to see if they will provide in the neighborhoods.  Next week we will be on the same schedule with meals available at both PVES and SES, as well as the designated bus stops on Tuesday and Thursday.  Then, on Tuesday, June 2, we will begin our hot meal pickup service at PVES and SES.  This service will be available Monday through Thursday from 11:00am until 1:00pm.  As we have done since the COVID-19 closure, these meals will be available to all students ages 0 to 18.  As we learn of other opportunities and summer feeding programs throughout Mooresville, we will share that information.

MGSD Technology Update

Our Technology Department will be starting summer hours next week.  They will be available from 8am until 3pm on Monday through Thursday.  If you need to return a device and accessories, please bring them to the Technology Department at 574 W. McLelland Avenue (NF Woods Campus).  Please pull into the lower circle drive and call 704.658.2526 when you arrive to let us know you are there to return your equipment.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding technology, please reach out the Technology Department at 704-658-2526.

2020 - 2021 Revised School Calendar

We hope everyone received the Bb Connect message with the survey regarding the two options for a revised 2020 - 2021 school calendar.  That survey will accept responses through this evening.  We will use the results of the survey to submit a calendar to our Board of Education for approval.  Once approved, we will send out the new revised 2020 - 2021 calendar.
