After-School Math Tutoring

Mackinaw Trail is offering a free, after-school Math tutoring program starting Monday, November 6th, through March 22nd, Monday – Thursday from 2:30 – 3:30 PM. Math only is offered this year. Free transportation is available via the Wexford Transit Authority (CWTA) for a maximum of 12 students each day for those students who request that option and live within the drop off boundaries.  If the student is using the CWTA, additional paperwork needs to be completed and signed by the parent/guardian PRIOR to the student staying after school. Forms are available in the office, on the rack outside of the office and can be downloaded from the MTMS website, located under the information section.

 

Students will need to sign up in the office no later than noon on the day they will be staying for tutoring.  Students MUST sign up EACH time they will be staying.  If you are picking your child up after tutoring, please be at MTMS no later than 3:30 pm.

NEW PICK-UP PROCESS
This year we will try a new pick-up process for Activity Night. The 5th grade students should be picked up in the back of the building by the playground, where the office is.  6th grade students should be picked up in the bus loop out front.  This is the same location for 6th grade as last year.  If you have a student in each grade, please pick them up in the 6th grades area.  We hope that this will increase safety, keep cars off Mackinaw Trail Road and speed up pick-up time.  Please be patient as we continue to refine this process and increase efficiencies. 

Activity Night Dates

MTMS Verified Entry System

With the goal of increased security, Cadillac Area Public Schools will institute a verified entry system at all K-8 CAPS school buildings during school hours.  Beginning on Monday, February 2, 2015, visitors to Cadillac Area Public School Buildings will be asked to "request entry" through a "security buzzer" entry system.  Similar to a doorbell, the buzzer is located at the main entrance of each building and visitors will be asked to verify their identity and purpose of their visit prior to being admitted to the building.  Here at MTMS, you will find the button to request entry to the right of the main entry doors.  Please press the button and wait a moment.  If we have not responded in 2 minutes, please press the button again as our Administrative Assistants may have missed your call.

 

After entering the building, you will be required to sign in at the office and wear a visitors badge while on the premises.  You are asked to sign out prior to leaving the building.  The purpose of the verified entry system is to better monitor visitors in our buildings during school hours at Cadillac Area Public Schools.  Thank you for your cooperation as we all become familiar with the new entry procedure.  Patience and feedback is requested as we institute this safety measure.  It is a program that has been successfully used in schools across the country and one additional step to monitoring guests in our buildings as a safety measure for our staff and students.  Your child's safe learning environment is one of our highest priorities.  Thank you for your support and understanding. 

Attendance Line

If your child is absent from school please call our attendance line 231-876-5603 as soon as possible on the day of the absence.  You can call the attendance line at anytime.  For preplanned absences please send a note to school.

School Closing and Delays

You can find out school closings and delays by checking the calendar or going to the vikingnet.org homepage.  You can also receive an e-mail or text as soon as we have school closing or school delay information.  Visit the following link:  www.cadillacnews.com   Look for the snowflake to sign up for this service.More
