Dear Manhattan students, parents, guardians and community members:
Please be advised that Governor Bullock has directed the closure of Public K-12 schools for two weeks - March 16th - March 27th. At Manhattan Public Schools this will include all school activities and any activities that may have been approved through the school’s Facility Use Agreement.
The Administrative Team has been working on contingency plans for this closure. These plans may include providing healthy meals for some of our students, online instruction for high school and middle school students and exploration of an online platform for elementary students. The team will keep you informed as we solidify these plans and learn more from the Office of Public Instruction, the Gallatin County Health Department and the Governor’s Office.
The Manhattan Community has a strong reputation for overcoming adversity. There is no doubt the school closure will be a burden to many. However, together we will get through this and be stronger because of it.
