We still have a few pages to fill and would LOVE photos of you during this time at home (remote learning, washing your hands, rocking a face mask, participating in a google hang-out session, etc.)

We are experiencing a very unique situation, and may as well capture it. For years to come, you can be reminded of your strength and adaptability during this challenging time as a high school student. Send photos to Ms. Weiss or Ms. Strout.

Remote Learning Materials Distribution

All Manchester School District students can access physical remote learning materials and food by meeting the bus at their regular stop, or the stop nearest their home if they are not a bus rider. Families have been or will be contacted by their schools or teachers to provide information and support as we initiate remote learning. This contact may be in the form of a phone call, e-mail, Google Classroom or other electronic format. In the case of a phone call you may see a blocked caller ID. Please answer blocked caller IDs in case it is your child’s teacher calling. This family contact is one way we are recording student attendance. It is important to remember school is not cancelled, these are not “snow days.”

To determine where and at what time the bus will be in your area please Click here to go to www.mansd.org for the Bus Route Schedules. (**Bus routes have changed! Please click the link to see the new schedule.) Please be patient and allow for buses to be late as we expect the addition of the material delivery to extend our route stop timing.

Please use this link to access the Elementary Remote Learning Materials Online.

Parents, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the school with any questions about assignments. If you need technical support from the school district, you can call our Help Desk at 413-3420.
