We are excited to welcome students to school on August 12, 2021, for the first day of school! Although the transmission of COVID-19 in our community is very low, we are required to update and share our MISD Return to School plan. The plan is designed to explain the prevention and mitigation strategies that may continue into the 2021-2022 school year. As it stands, MISD does have a mask mandate for all individuals. We all understand how uncomfortable masks can be, but we also recognize their importance in a multi-layered approach to reducing the spread of viruses. Our plan anticipates a worst-case scenario and outlines how we will respond in the event that we experience elevated community transmission of COVID-19. Our MISD Return to School plan is comprehensive, systematic, and multi-faceted.  We hope this document helpful as you make plans for your student to return to school for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. With this plan in place, our objective is to ensure a healthy and safe learning environment for our students and staff. As our students and staff have shown, by implementing prevention techniques we can make a difference and reduce/eliminate the spread of COVID-19 in our schools.      Finally, we encourage all staff, families, and students who are eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccination in preparation for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. By working together, we can ensure a safe haven for our students and staff during the next school year. Student and staff health and safety is addressed in the section of the document entitled Layers of Safety: Mitigation Strategies. The academic and social-emotional needs of students are addressed in the final two sections. We are looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year and thank you for your continued support.
