Dear MCS Families and Staff,

We have almost made it to our next scheduled break! We wanted to take the opportunity to remind everyone of the COVID-19 travel guidance issued from the State of New Hampshire. We have been so fortunate to remain at school in person and full time, and we want to do everything that we can to be sure that we can come back and stay here.

Travel & Quarantine Guidance:

• NH Department of Public Health Services continues to recommend against any non-essential personal or business travel, and people should avoid gathering with others who are not part of a person’s immediate household.

• People traveling outside the six New England States (NH, ME, VT, MA, CT, RI) need to self quarantine for 10 days from their last day of travel outside New England.

• Travelers now have the option to shorten their travel-related quarantine if all the following apply: the person gets a molecular-based test (an antigen is not acceptable) on day 7 (or later) of their quarantine, the person tests negative, and they remain asymptomatic.

*This 7-day “test out” of travel quarantine option applies ONLY to travel-related quarantine and NOT quarantine due to other types of exposure.*

Please contact Jackie Gilmour, School Nurse and COVID-19 Coordinator, at (603) 638-2800 ex. 47 if you are traveling outside of the exempt states or have visitors traveling in from outside that area. If you have further questions or need clarification, please contact us and we will direct you to the appropriate information.

Thank you for your continued diligence and support in keeping our community safe and healthy. We are all doing a great job with constant communication and the following of protocols.

Leah Holz, District Administrator
