School Closure & Continuity of Learning and Connection

On March 31, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond stated, "Due to the current safety concerns and needs for ongoing social distancing, it currently appears that our students will not be able to return to school campuses before the end of the school year."

In response, MCOE provided a county update [Español] with the following statement:

With this new information and an abundance of caution MCOE, school district superintendents, and the charter school directors are taking a safety first approach and immediate action to extend the school facility closures through the end of the school year. To be clear, the 2019-20 school year is not over, it has just transitioned from classroom instruction into distance learning.

ISM will remain closed through Friday, June 5. To ensure ongoing high-quality learning opportunities for students as well as virtual interaction among students that keeps them connected with school and each other, ISM has launched a new Distance Learning Plan that will continue through the end of the year.
