MISD is implementing a remote conferencing environment to address your child’s academic needs when they are required to quarantine due to being diagnosed with a communicable disease.  Remote conferencing began on September 7, 2021, during the evening hours only and is facilitated largely by MISD staff. If your child is out for a medical condition or quarantine, you will receive information on how your child will receive remote conferencing support.
