Dear Citizens,
 
We have now finished our 3rd nine weeks, and we are starting the last nine weeks of the 2017-18 school year.  This week we will not have school on Thursday, March 29th, Friday, March 30th, and Monday, April 2nd for the Easter Break. I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Easter Break.  When we return from break, our testing season will start.  Listed below will be the dates of our end of year testing for each grade and subject area.  Please make sure your son/daughter is here at school on the testing dates, and make sure they eat a good breakfast and get plenty of rest the night before the test.  
 
Mississinawa Valley School District had their 5th calamity day last week. Hopefully, we are finished with the bad weather season. If we should miss our 6th day, reminder that students in grades K-12 will have to complete their E-Day Assignments or Blizzard bags for the younger students for days #6, #7 and #8.  If we should happen to miss more than 8 days, we will make those days up in accordance to our make-up days on the school calendar.

School Closings and Delays Mississinawa Valley has implemented the Instant Connect Voice Dial System which is a great asset for parents and staff. Parents and students are also encouraged to listen to the radio or TV stations for the latest school delays, early release or closing information. A decision to delay or close school is usually made by 6:15 a.m. Parents should make pre-arranged plans for unscheduled emergencies.
