COVID-19

The 2021-22 school year begins August 16th.

Thank you for your patience, support, and kind words over the past year.  After much discussion and a great deal of research, we are using the terminology as of right now (aka AORN).  These unprecedented circumstances have been a challenge, but they have also pushed us in new directions.  MSP will resume, continuing with some modified classroom set-ups, mask-wearing, and other precautions.

We are closely follow CDC guidelines, as well as Escambia County Health Department, and Department of Children & Families.  Click here for the Coronavirus section of the CDC website.

Stay safe.
