Parents

Parents are an integral part of the MKA community, and their involvement is welcomed throughout the school. Working in partnership with the administration, parents have a special opportunity for participation in school life through PAMKA, the school's exceptionally active parents' association. Hundreds of parent volunteers run events and programs devoted to fundraising, serving the local community, supporting the faculty and bringing together families for social and educational events. From being involved with organizing the largest school Book Fair in the country, to helping chaperone a class trip, there is something for every parent to help with in enriching the MKA educational experience.

Snow Closing

In the event of bad weather, school may be cancelled, implement a virtual learning day (V-Day) or have a 90-minute delayed opening. A decision for either will be made by 5:30 a.m. and posted on the MKA website and delivered via an Instant Alert message shortly thereafter. Please remember to check your Honeywell Instant Alert account (located in the Parent Portal) to update phone numbers, email addresses, etc. that you would like these alerts delivered to.

IF THERE IS A DELAYED OPENING:

Classes and/or school activities will begin at 9:30 a.m. and conclude at the regularly scheduled time for each campus.

Students may arrive at school between 8:45 and 9:30 a.m. Please do not bring your child to school before 8:45 a.m. because buildings may not be open and ready, and driveways and walkways may not be plowed. Faculty, administration and staff will not be available to supervise students before 8:45 a.m.

For those families using Station Wagon Services, a parent or guardian should remain at home until their child has been picked up. It is possible that the bus driver will arrange a different pick-up location that may be a street or a block away from the home location.
