Updates on district plans and the Coronavirus


Updated: 5/16/20


  • All of our buildings will be closed for the remainder of the school year. This is a mandatory closing period directed by the Governor for all districts in the state to be closed.
  • We will continue to educate our students via remote learning through our website and class pages.

There will be no school events, sports practices or contests during this time period.   While the track is open to the public, we ask that students work out in no more than pairs, and maintain distance if more than a few students are there.  All fields and playgrounds are closed, including the batting cages.

Students should visit building and teacher pages for online assignments.  It is important that parents encourage their children to stay active and participate in these lessons and activities.

- Nolley resources have been posted on the Nolley page.

- Instructions for lessons and videos for students have been posted on MMS and MHS pages.


Please reach out to your local providers if you do not have internet access at home, as many companies are offering free connection during this time.


If you need assistance, please call the central office at 330-882-6926, or send an email to your building administrator.
