Dear Cougar Families,
The MPCS Instructional Team and building Administrators worked closely with the Virginia Department of Education, to bring you the MPCS Continuous Learning Plan. Read the plan here.
This plan will help guide school instruction through the end of the school year. It is intended to communicate our approach to providing ongoing high-quality academic, social-emotional, and wellness supports for students and families.
MPCS remains committed to creating learning environments that foster creative thinking, a culture of caring, and personal connections. Our educators are well trained in techniques and strategies to connect remotely with students to both maintain and strengthen relationships and to address the academic needs of individual learners, just as they would in face-to-face classroom environments.
Our teachers will continue to provide students with diverse learning experiences that prepare them for academic success while creatively challenging and inspiring students with engaging and meaningful learning activities.
As we have developed our Continuous Learning Plan, we acknowledge that distance learning cannot substitute for daily in-person instructional programs and requires adjustments to the scope and sequence of our curriculum. However, these modifications will not compromise our standards. Our students will continuously develop and apply Portrait of a Graduate skills as communicators, collaborators, ethical and global citizens, creative and critical thinkers, and goal-oriented and resilient individuals.
Please take time to familiarize yourself with the MPCS Continuous Learning Plan and discuss any concerns or questions with your child’s teacher. Watch the division website and Facebook page for newsletter updates from the schools, and check email for school educational updates.
Thank you for your support and continued commitment.
Dr. C. Bruce McDade
