Winter Recess and Winter Weather School Closure Information
We would like to remind you that during the cold winter months the students will continue to go outside for recess if the temperature is above 28 degrees (factoring in the wind chill). Remember to send warm coats, snow pants, boots, gloves and hats so they can enjoy the fresh air!

Due to the fact that we coordinate
with so many transportation systems, it is unlikely that MRCS
will ever call for a two hour delay. In the event that
your school district has a two hour delay and MRCS is in session,
then you may either drive your child to school or send your child
on the delayed bus. This will be considered an excused tardy.
Please also be aware that when MRCS remains in session and:
Your home district has announced a closing due to a snow day: If your child receives bus transportation
from their home district and that district has announced a snow day closing, bus transportation will not
be provided by your home district. We strongly encourage you to arrange alternate transportation to and
from school that day. If this is not possible, the absence is considered a snow day for your child.
Your home district is closed due to a scheduled break: If your home school district is closed due to a scheduled break, bus transportation will be provided by your home district.
