Meskwaki Settlement School

Starting Thursday, March 19th the Meskwaki Settlement School, including offices, will be closed.   However, the elementary and middle/high schools will be open this Wednesday, March 18th from 2-6pm to allow students to retrieve essential items (like medication, laptops, etc.).  If you need to get your child’s medication, an authorized adult MUST sign for it.  It cannot be given to children.  We are in the process of sanitizing our buildings, so access should be quick and targeted to retrieve only the items you need.  Communication regarding academic support will be sent home from the school later today.  Families may utilize the email directory located on the school’s webpage to connect with staff during the closing.
