Martin County West parents were asked at the end of July to complete an online survey to assist with school planning for this fall. The questions on the survey focused on returning to school; health and safety procedures; transportation; food service; technology; and communication.

At this time, about 80 percent of MCW families are planning to send their children back to school in the fall.

If you have not completed the survey and would like to do so, you may find the link on the school district webpage and school Facebook pages. They welcome input from all MCW families.

A group of teachers, administrators, and school staff have been meeting and will continue to meet throughout August to finalize the MCW return-to-school plans.
