Message From Mr. Unrein
Hello Smith Community:
As we wait to see what our educational plan will look like, based on state and federal mandates, I wanted to reach out and let you know that all our staff is now working from home. I have asked each teacher to reach out and let their students know that they are available via email right now. Their working hours are from 8:15 – 4:15, Monday through Friday. We are currently programing a system that allows them to make phone calls from their computers. Please stay tuned for more information once it becomes available.
I understand that the closure of Arizona schools may leave some students without services, and we are working to fill these voids. Please remember that all Mesa elementary schools are serving pick up lunches between 11:00 am to 1:00 pm to students under the age of 18; these lunches also come with a breakfast for the next day.
If your student needs to talk to a counselor or if you need any information regarding mental health or counseling in general, please reach out to schedule an appointment for a phone call with one of our counselors:
Jodi Kelly <email@example.com
For the quickest and most comprehensive news regarding school closures at MPS, please regularly visit http://www.mpsaz.org/beprepared/
Our staff misses students already and we are eager to see what instruction will look like based on forthcoming decisions from the Arizona Department of Education. I will be in touch soon with what all education at Smith will look like.
