MOUNTAIN ISLAND CHARTER SCHOOL IS COMMITTED TO HELP REDUCE THE SPREAD OF COVID-19

MICS is committed to protect our students, faculty and staff. Please review the updated COVID-19 health and safety protocols HERE, which include the following procedures:  
  • Face coverings/masks are required for all individuals when indoors.
  • Prior to arrival, monitor for symptoms at home and stay home if sick. 
  • Report any positive cases and exposures to Christine Hancock (chancock@micharter.org).
  • Monitoring at home includes that staff and students must disclose (within the last 10 – 14 day period): 
    • Have you tested positive for COVID-19? 
    • Have you been in close contact with someone who tested positive? 
    • Have you developed symptoms?
If someone answers yes to any of these questions, they must contact the school and remain at home until they meet criteria for return.
