Mascoutah CUSD 19 will not hold classes either in person or remote tomorrow, Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Road conditions, very low wind chill temperatures, as well as more snow in the forecast are the main factors in making this decision. A snow day means that there are no lunches again tomorrow. The last day of school is now scheduled for Tuesday, May 25.
Due to the inclement weather conditions, school will be cancelled tomorrow, Tuesday, February 16, 2021. We will use a snow day; there will be no in-person or remote instruction. We will make up the day at the end of the school year. Monday, May 24, 2021, will now be the last day of attendance.

MMS Parents/Guardians, Please remember to send your student to school on their correct day (A-L today and Thurs; K-Z Weds and Fri) and at the right time time (doors open at 7:25am and classes start at 7:45am). Each day students come to school they need these three things: 1. Chromebook - fully charged 2. Face mask / PPE 3. Lanyard signifying certification Please sign up for our Zoom Parent/Teacher Conferences (link is in the email and in out News section of the website). Please be patient on the night of the conferences. Teachers will have you in a Zoom "waiting room" until they are ready to let you "in." This is a new process that is all about safety. Zooms with students still begin at the start of each hour but teachers are not confined to the earlier 17 minutes but can take Zooms longer as necessary for instruction. Lunch at no cost has been extended through the end of the school year. Here is the information for remote lunch ordering. Lastly, as you know, there were some technological issues last week and the District techs are working very hard to get all systems back up and running. Thank you for your patience. Respectfully, Principal Dulcamara
MMS wants to thank our custodians for everything they do for us every day! Happy Custodians Day!
