Coronavirus update 4/2/2020

Hello Maritime Families, We hope you are all staying home and healthy during this time. We want to remind you that grades are closing and all work needs to be submitted. If your child has not contacted their teachers, they need to do this as soon as possible, class work is not optional during this time. As of now, both buildings are closed and locked. If you have a true emergency and need to enter the high school only, you will need to reach out to the Commandant via the school website and her email link. Parents and students can be using both the parent and student portals to monitor classwork assignments and grades. We also post updates on Facebook and our school website for your convenience. Please, if youare experiencing technical difficulties, you need to contact a teacher or administrator immediately to get a resolution in place. Again, submitting classwork is not optional. We all miss our students very much. Thank you and stay safe and healthy.
