School Hours & Schedules

  • Below is the weekly schedule and times during Distance Learning for All, and will continue in a similar manner for those students who are in the Distance Learning by Choice gourp, aka the Virtual Academy. Once in-person, those students who selected the Hybrid/Blended model will move to the Hybrid/Blended learning schedule (to be published a later date).

     

    All students will be divided into two groups, the BLUE group and the GOLD groups, which will determine the cadence of their A and B weeks. 

     
    For parents with siblings at an MPCSD elementary school:
    - BLUE group will be attending school during the same week as all “In-Person A” students district-wide.
    - GOLD group will be attending school during the same week as all "In-Person B" students district-wide.
