Hello Mustangs! As the start of the school year approaches, we have news to share with you from our Food Service Department. Please see the information below.
With the end of the 2021-2022 school year, also brought the end of the free meals for all students. Congress did not renew this program, meaning we are returning to the free and reduced lunch program. All students will still get a free breakfast, but not lunches. We are asking all families to fill out a free and reduced lunch application whether you think you qualify or not. The portal for doing all things food service is now https://meridian.familyportal.cloud
. Parents will register for an account and be able to fill out the free/reduced application, see what students are purchasing for lunch, add funds to lunch accounts (no longer on e-funds) and more. Any questions can be sent to the food service department at firstname.lastname@example.org
or 989-687-3212. Thank you. #ReachHigher

Dear Meridian Families, Students, and Staff,
This is a quick update to make everyone aware that the CDC updated their mask guidance and requirements last Friday, February 25th. After confirming with the Midland County Department of Public Health, Meridian Public Schools will be recommending masking on school buses, but not requiring them, effective immediately. We will still have masks available for students who request them for the remainder of the school year.
Good Afternoon Mustangs,
This is a reminder about the school calendar changes that were made back in January for students in order to provide the staff with some very important training during the second half of the school year. Students will not report on February 25th and March 18th. April 14th and May 26th will now be half days for students. Staff will utilize this time to engage in additional training time to ensure that all team members receive critical updates on how to respond during a threatening situation from our school resource officer; as well as, a refresher on our Smart Boot Door Security System.
A copy of the updated school calendar can be found by going to www.merps.org/calendar
Meridian Public Schools will be closed today due to Snow
