3/20 Health-Related Closure Update

Updates for MO families on the fifth day of the COVID-19 health-related closure:
  • Please go to tinyurl.com/MOhealthplan and view the Health-Related Closure Plan that contains vital information about home instruction assignments, WiFi access, free and reduced meal pick-up, and continuity of District operations. 
  • We are working very closely with Mayor Greenbaum, MO Township Administrator Tatarenko, and the MO Health Department to ensure our MOTSD families are as healthy and safe as possible. Contact the MO Department of Health COVID-19 hotline at (862) 419-4300 with any suspected cases. In an effort to respond to the many questions and concerns raised by our residents, the Township has established a COVID-19 email address  for general questions regarding the virus, Township preparation and response: COVID-19@mtolivetwp.org  
  • With the exception of MOMS, all MOTSD buildings, fields, and grounds are closed to all staff, students, and community members. 
  • All registered MOTSD students who qualify for free and/or reduced lunch can pick up boxed breakfasts and lunches Monday-Friday during the health-related closure at Mount Olive Middle School from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
  • The PowerSchool parent portal has been disabled. The portal has been temporarily closed in order to allow time for the administration and faculty to navigate assignments, assessments, and grading in a new remote learning format. No new grades are being entered into Powerschool by teachers at this time. Parents in grades 6-12 should refer to Google Classroom for student assignments. See: Parents Guide to Google Classroom
