The need to support one another doesn't take a summer break. We're excited to empower our MMSD community with tools, resources and information for summer enrichment.

Stay in touch. During summer break, you can still reach your school with questions or concerns. The best way to do this is by using the Let's Talk feature on your school's website (look for the red "Contact Us" box in the bottom-right corner).

If you need to reach the school district office, use Let'sTalk
