The ECC pumpkin patch activities scheduled for Veterans Park on Thursday, October 29th have been moved indoors to the Elementary Gym and Elementary Saferoom. The District has taken the changing weather into consideration, we feel that our community partners and students will enjoy the Candy Walk and Pumpkin Patch if they are held inside. The Candy Walk will be set up in the newly remodeled Elementary Gym. Our community partners will pass out candy and enjoy the costume parade in the Gym. Our Pumpkin Patch activities will be held in the safe room. We feel this will still accommodate the appropriate amount of social distancing for both our Community Partners who are passing out candy and for our students and staff. Any community partner who has not submitted their Candy Walk participation form, can still do so through the McLoud Chamber to the Office Manager firstname.lastname@example.org or ECC Principal Sally Thomason email@example.com by Tuesday, October 27th.

Good morning MHS students and parents! As we start our second week of distance learning I want to commend those of you who have jumped in and are completing your work! Well done! Often times it is easy to focus on the negative when there is a lot of positive! With that being said, we also had a lot of students disappear last week. Please remember, your attendance is recorded by you completing 50% of the work assigned for the week! Distance learning is not easy and students must be disciplined. I encourage you to set aside time each day to do your school work just as if you were at school. It doesn't have to be for seven hours, but it does need to happen to be successful! I feel that many students put it off thinking they will do it later, and then it piles up and becomes overwhelming! Parents, please encourage your student to log-in! Have a great week, stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you on the 2nd!
This week at the Intermediate. This is a busy week with lots of excitement as we kick off Red Ribbon Week.
The Intermediate is decorated and ready to kick off Red Ribbon Week on Monday. Students, teachers, and staff enjoyed decorating their doors.
The Intermediate is very excited to share with you our Red Ribbon Week Activities. Distance Learners you may log into Mrs. Murdocks google classroom for videos and activities. We can't wait! We are ready to work together to make healthy choices and be drug free!
Today will be the final scheduled Virtual Friday. The school board approved to cancel the Virtual Friday scheduled for November 6th. McLoud meets state guidelines without going on that day.
Good morning and happy Friday MHS students and parents! Please remember that today is a virtual Friday and you will have assignments to complete in all your classes to be counted present for the day. Also, it was board approved yesterday that today will be the last virtual Friday for the year! I want to encourage you again to turn your assignments in! These assignments are how you get credit for being in attendance for the day/week! Reminder: If you are a Gordon Cooper student and you are not quarantined, you should be going to class at Gordon Cooper. The bus to Gordon Cooper is running as normal. Have a great weekend!

HS parents and students! Good morning to all of you! I want to reiterate to you how important it is for you to stay caught up on your classwork during this time out of class. Many students did not log in yesterday which is very concerning to us! Attendance for the time we are out of school will be determined by the work completed, just like it is for our distance learners. If a student completes 50% of the work assigned, that student will be considered present. If not, the student will receive an absence. Please remember that teachers are still working a normal work day from 7:30-4:10 and are available to answer email's and phone calls. Many of our teachers have also provided links to Google Meet sessions or have sent invitations to Google Meet for students to ask questions. Have a great day, take care of your health and wellness, and we look forward to seeing you back in class as soon as possible!
