Maconaquah Parents and Students,
Maconaquah School Corporation will be canceling school on Tuesday, November 19, 2019. This cancelation is due to a majority of the Corporation’s teachers requesting leave to participate in Red for Ed Action day at the Statehouse. Teachers will be attending a rally in support of the education system and to advocate to our Indiana legislators for our students, school, and for their future.
Because the corporation will be understaffed, Maconaquah administrators and School Board members have decided that it is in the best interest of students to cancel this school day as there will not be proper safety and adequate instruction for learning.
Under Indiana State code, this canceled day is required to be made up, but at this time a make-up date has not been decided. School Board members will vote on a revision to the calendar at the upcoming board meeting on November 26th. Parents and students will be promptly notified of any makeup day once decided.
Administrators and School Board members hope to see something positive come from Red for Ed Action Day, and plan to continue to support their staff and students in whatever way they can.
