Welcome to Manistee Middle/High School!
Please Note: The indoor walking track is closed at this time. The outdoor track may be used for recreational walking after school hours.
By making positive choices, striving toward personal goals, and supporting each other, we all make a difference in the world around us. We inspire each other to dream more, learn more and do more.
We are equipped with the knowledge and values necessary to become productive and successful citizens of our world. With respect, dedication, and integrity, we work as a community to reach our highest potential.
In an effort to keep our MAPS community informed, below we are providing notification regarding any COVID-19 concerns related to our District.
Food Service Program
2021/22 School Year
MAPS will following the USDA National School Lunch Seamless Summer Option, which allows us to offer all students free breakfast and lunch for the entire school year..
Our Grab & Go program has been changed under the USDA Seamless Summer Option, as of the first day of school (Aug. 31st) This means:
- All students attending school, within our buildings, who are offered meals at school CANNOT have families pick up meals through the Grab & Go line. Those students will all be fed at school. Any student following required quarantine protocols can use the Grab & Go service.
- If students are virtual learners, home schoolers, or any other children within the Manistee community not attending school they are still eligible to participate in the Grab & Go program.
- We will offer pick up of a 5-day breakfast & lunch pack on Mondays between 9am-10am at MMHS in the drop-off lane.
- Grab & Go meals are no longer able to be offered for weekends or holidays. They can only be provided for those days that school is in session.
- Accountability is required, student names will be recorded when families are picking up Grab & Go meals to verify those students are not in attendance at our buildings.
- If a holiday, snow day or school day scheduled to be off occurs on a Monday, the meal pick up will be Tuesday.
We ask that all families complete the free/reduced applications for this school year even though we are feeding all children for free, link below. This will allow for student meal accounting for the program. This information will be used by the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services for future PEBT distributions and to account for student benefits for the 22/23 school year. Student benefits will follow them for the first 30 days of the next school year (22/23), to allow families time to complete another free/reduced application without loss of benefits.
Today Manistee EMT responded to a student in distress at the building. The student is in good condition and in the care of a parent. We continue to appreciate the professionalism, support, and quick reaction of our local responders.
