Hello Parents and Guardians,

 

Since each student in the district has been placed on Home Instruction due to COVID-19, I will be posting the instruction and instructional activities on my Google Classroom for each day that school is not physically in session.  I will also be online and available by email at avento@mtps.org from  9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday to answer any and all questions you may have.  Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns you have. Please send any building level questions to either our principal or vice-principal(s).  We will all be here to support your children and our community during these difficult times.  

Sincerely,

Alexandra Vento
