Opportunities to pick-up and drop-off school and personal items will happen on a staggered basis for families. We ask that you come to school on the day of the week designated based on the first letter of a child's last name.
News & Announcements
I am sure many of you join us in feeling the incredible disappointment of not being able to finish the school year together in our buildings, rather at home through remote learning instead. News that our buildings would be closed to students for the remainder of the school year naturally brings a lot of questions. Please know that while we do not know all of the answers just yet, I can assure you, our team continues to work diligently every day on planning.
Please view this video update from Superintendent Mr. Porter regarding the latest information surrounding the COVID-19 school buildings closure, an update to the remote learning plan and more.
We miss having our students in school so much! Here's a video we'd like to share capturing some happy moments of remote learning so far in Mentor Schools!
There is a form that must be completed if your student is to be picked up or dropped off at a location other than his/her home. Public Daycare pick-up/drop-off locations must be on our approved child care facilities list. The pick-up and/or drop-off locations will be the same for every day of the week. In an effort to accommodate childcare needs, a parent may request an alternate bus stop for his/her child(ren) within the schools' attendance area. In order to honor first day of school requests, the request must be submitted by July 15 to the Transportation Dept.

For the last five years, the district has used BrightBytes (a trusted, secure, anonymous, 15 minute-or-less survey tool) to gather feedback around our district's technology initiatives. Because of remote learning, BrightBytes has adjusted the survey to provide information to help districts respond to the current needs of students, families, and staff members.
