Even though this winter has been mild so far, I am wishing for an early Spring. Which do you hope for?

Updated guidelines for MC sporting events
Hello Raiders, I'm happy to be almost to the end of January and just now communicating about the weather. As you're aware, winter weather will soon be upon us. Several people have asked about whether a snow day will be used as a remote learning day. Should we need to cancel school for weather, Midwest Central plans to use a snow day just as we have in the past. We will not have any remote learning on those days. We will simply add them to the end of the year as we've done traditionally. I hope this clears up any confusion. Best, Dr. Todd Hellrigel

The mobile dental clinic, Miles of Smiles, will be holding a dental clinic at the Primary School on February 19th. They provide exams and preventative services (cleaning and sealants) for students in Early Childhood through 5th grade; plus 6th, 8th, and 9th grades to fulfill dental services required by the state for school attendance. They will accept private and Medicaid/All Kids insurances. Forms went home with students this week. You must provide the billing information that is located on the form. Please be sure to complete all areas, sign, and date at the bottom of the form. Contact the school nurse if you need another form. The exam provided meets the State of Illinois school dental requirements due by May 15th. Remote learners can participate. Parents are responsible for transportation. Please be aware that there are no appointment times. Contact the school nurse with any questions.
There is no school today in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. We look forward to seeing students back on Tuesday, January 19th.
Reminder - Today (1/15/21) is a 1/2 day for students. Also, there will be no school on Monday for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Good news... the phones are back up! Thank you for your patience.
Dear Raider students and families, While this school year has not been what anyone would wish for, I hope each of you can find gratitude and something you are thankful for this holiday season. My mom had a Thanksgiving tradition that may be especially important this year. Before we could eat our Thanksgiving meal she asked everyone to go around and say one thing they were thankful for. You may consider trying that this year with your family. I know I am personally thankful for the support of my family, our teachers and support staff, who have adapted to incredibly difficult circumstances, our bus drivers, who have gone the extra mile for our students, our parents, who have altered their work schedules, our custodial staff, who have kept our buildings clean and sanitized, our cafeteria workers who have prepared meals, and our principals who have provided their leadership. Mostly, I have gratitude for our students who have demonstrated tremendous patience and understanding as they navigate new learning models through this pandemic. At the end of the day, each of us are trying to do the best we can under incredibly difficult circumstances. It hasn’t always gone smoothly, but I believe we have learned a lot since the first day of school that will make us more prepared and stronger for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year and beyond. Our Thanksgiving break will begin today and students will return Monday, November 30th to in-person learning. We will continue to be vigilant in monitoring all student and staff health. Our current plan is to only close grade levels or buildings as necessary. As of today, our plan does not include a district-wide shut down. I hope to continue to be able to say that after Thanksgiving break. It’s been a challenging year, but we will continue to get through this together. Please be safe this holiday season and have a Happy Thanksgiving. Sincerely, Dr. Todd Hellrigel
Happy Thanksgiving Raiders
