Under this program, free meals are provided to all eligible children ages 1 to 18 as well as people with disabilities, regardless of age, who participate in a special education program.

Due to the cancellation of classes on January 30 and 31 because of dangerous wind chill temperatures, the last day for students will now be on Tuesday, May 28. Please make a note on your calendars!

(Monday, May 27, is Memorial Day, so there will be no classes that day.)

These are the second and third make-up days added to the year due to weather-related closures. (MCS was closed on Nov. 15, 3018, due to icy roads.) Any more cancellations will result in more days being added to the end of the school year. We will continue to advise families if more make-up days are needed.
