Covid-19 Health Safety Update:

MPCG in accordance with CDC guidelines strongly encourages students and staff to begin masking in all indoor spaces. This is not a mask mandate, however we need to slow the spread of illness within our school and remember we are still in a world pandemic.  We also believe that the following guidelines can also help us from making a mask mandate.

Mask, Test or Go Home/Stay Home Guidelines 

* Guidelines for students who show any signs of illness

  • Masks will be kept in all classrooms (students may bring a mask of their own to keep in case)

  • If a student shows any symptoms, they will be asked to put on a mask and will wear it the rest  of the day and for as long as they come to school with any symptoms. (Staff will communicate with the office if they give a sick student a mask.)

  • If the student showing symptoms chooses not to mask, they will either go home or have the option to take a covid test with the School Nurse WITH PARENTAL CONSENT.

  • Parents may bring a doctor’s note if needed to communicate the student's symptoms as an illness related to allergies or other non contagious illnesses.

  • Students can return to school once symptoms resolve or have proof of a negative covid test or may continue to come to school wearing a mask until symptoms resolve.

  • Covid positive students must stay home and follow their isolation guidelines as directed by Traill County Health.

Thank you for helping to keep us in school!!!!! 

The next meeting of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is this Sunday at 4:00 starting at the Portland Softball complex.  Please sign up in the office.
