October 9, 2020: Students at MMS are preparing for tomorrow's pep and Veterans Day assembly. Each year, students at MMS honor veterans by inviting them on campus and making special recognitions. Due to COVID, we will not have veterans on campus for the safety and wellbeing of everyone. However, students did not want to miss the opportunity to honor veterans by sharing a positive message. We have outstanding students at Monett R-1!
Safety Update - MIS and MMS had a building lockdown as the Monett Police Department were conducting an operation close to the campus. The operation ended quickly without incident. Our students and staff responded appropriately and were safe during the short lockdown. We want to thank our Monett Police Department for partnering with the district and maintaining school safety during their operations.
Just a reminder that MMS after school programs and athletic practices have been canceled today (November 3, 2020). Students will need to either ride the bus home, be a car rider, or walk home. Thanks for your understanding!
