Can students come to campus to pick up books?

The campus will be open to students on Monday, March 16 ONLY for the purpose of retrieving items from lockers that will be needed for remote learning. Students should access the building through the front doors by the Main Office and retrieve items from their lockers as quickly as possible.


Who do students contact if they have technical issues? 

We’ve set up a new email: Messages sent here are forwarded to Dr. Nielsen and Ms. Glass. One of them will respond to try to solve the problem.


What about sports practices? 

The spring sports season has been postponed until April 27 and the MPA has asked us to treat this time similarly to the hands-off time between seasons and during the two-week period in early August. There should not be any organized team activity between now and the start of the spring season. Any workouts should be done individually in an effort to enforce the recommended social distancing.
