Emergency Power Announce Test:
Wed, Nov 18, the school will be testing our Power Announce system. Expect to receive a test message at your email, phone and text (if you have designated texting). There is no need to respond to the message or alert liaisons.
This is our procedure for letting everyone know when School Closure happens or emergencies. We call school for the following reasons:
- Roads are closed
- No electricity at MMS Lower Campus
- Emergency services have designated hazardous road conditions and it is deemed dangerous for students and buses to drive to MMS
Three highly-qualified new teachers, Parunee Kaosayapandhu, Oscar Perez and Sandy Shaw, have joined the faculty at Mount Madonna School (MMS).
Communication of Change in Transportation:
If you are changing your child’s transportation arrangements, please call our school office the day of the change and inform the receptionist or you can email . They, in turn, with notify the teacher and write a note for the bus monitor, so all are aware of the change.
