On Friday 4/27/18 the Mechanicville Junior/Senior High students were dropped off or as they were getting off the bus, they were greeted with a smile and a fully decorated sidewalk with inspiring notes. As every student in the Junior High School walked to their locker, they found an inspirational note to start their day. Our Kindness Counts Contest was in full swing and everyone was trying their hardest to share as many compliments as they could. The Mechanicville Junior High School students shared over 800 compliments with one another throughout this week. That is simply amazing! Some of our students took part in group discussions and participated in activities to build upon their teamwork skills and connect with their peers. Together, they united. Together they realized the kind of future they wanted for their school community and today they took a big step to build on that dream. Amazing job to everyone who participated in this phenomenal day!
Please be advised that the Mechanicville Jr./Sr. High School conducted a Lockdown Drill at 10:00am this morning (Monday, April 23). The buildings was re-opened upon completion of this drill. If there are any questions, please contact the school office. Thank you.
At MCSD we continually review lockdown procedures with our students throughout the year - Similar to years past, the State Education Department has mandated four (4) Lockdown Drills be held in each school across the State. Those familiar with our District are most likely aware that we have conducted these drills in the past. However, some drills will be scheduled to be conducted in the near future and we thought it best to advise you now to prevent any unnecessary issue or concern for student safety. When the announced Lockdown Drills do occur, there is a notification sent via the student information system notifying parents of the drill. Be it known, however, that some Lockdown Drills are unannounced which will mean no advanced notice for the Jr. Sr. High School.
The Jr./Sr. High School Building will be closed and not accessible to students or staff as a result of continuing work towards our capital project throughout the duration of the Spring Break Recess. Parent and Student SchoolTool Portals will also not be accessible from Friday – Wednesday (March 29-April 4).
