District Announcements

  • MMCSD Approves Athletics
    Remains Focused on Providing Opportunities for Students
     
    I am pleased to report that the Mount Markham Central School District has approved the abbreviated sports schedule established in accordance to the criteria set by Herkimer County for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. The schedule is outlined below: 

    Winter Season- 3/1/21 to 4/10/21 (Varsity and JV Basketball)

    Fall 2 Season- 4/5/21 to 5/8/21 (Varsity Football and Varsity & JV Volleyball) 

    Spring Season- 4/26/21 to 6/11/21 (All traditional spring sports, all levels) 

    Rationale: It is very frustrating that New York State has prioritized athletics over academics and the reopening of our schools; however, if the Governor is going to provide opportunity, we want to take advantage of it for the benefit of our students.  We recognize that there is an incredible amount of hypocrisy and absence of logic in the “rule book” that has been dictated to schools.  For example, the Governor’s regulations state that it is okay to play sports, but it’s not okay to have our students closer than 12-feet apart during regular PE class.  Kids can play football, but they can’t sit closer than 6-feet apart during a social studies class.  Regardless of the double standard, approving athletics will provide our students with something they desperately need right now… hope.  So much has been taken away from our students this year, they need to have this opportunity.

  • Travelers Health Form 

    Winter break is right around the corner! We wanted to inform you that the NYS Traveler Health Form is available here and under our Health and Wellness website. If your child travels outside of New York to a non-bordering state, we ask that you please complete the Traveler Health Form and follow all guidelines for the child to return to school on 2/22/2021.  The district did not create these rules but asked to implement them.  We would greatly appreciate your assistance in doing so. Thank you!

    As per NYS, please utilize the new physical form. It will be the only physical form we can now accept starting 2/1/2021. We have faxed this form out to several pediatricians in our area. Please print and bring it with you to your child's Well Child Checkup/physicals.

    We thank you in advance for your assistance!

  • Free Meals for K-12 Students!

    Exciting News!

    We’re happy to share that the USDA and New York State Education Department have approved free breakfast/lunch meals for students 18 and under, through the end of June 2021. Specific to Mount Markham, the Food Service Department will be working with the High School, to accommodate students needing ‘To-Go’ bags on their virtual learning days.

    Please note that we’ll still be asking families to fill out the Free/Reduced application. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
