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
With support from the United States Department of Agriculture and Michigan Department of Education, Manistee Area Public Schools is grateful to be able to extend free meals for all children 18 and younger, and students with disabilities up to 26 years of age, in our Manistee community through the summer of 2021. Once funding is no longer available, our Food Service Department will return to the National School Lunch Program parameters for public school food service.
MAPS will be serving all in-person learners free breakfast and lunch every school day at each building in the district. We will also be offering free Grab & Go meals Mondays and Thursdays at Manistee Middle High School at MMHS at 525 Twelfth Street from 9 am to 10 am. This food service program is available to all MAPS online learners in addition to any Manistee community families with children 18 & younger and students with disabilities up to 26 years of age.

Summer School Students
We will be serving meals to all students attending summer school within the building. Only summer school students can be served indoors at this time. The district will reevaluate early July, whether we can open to the public for daily service inside.
Students attending summer school can also request meals to be taken home for the weekends. Please make your request with one of our Nutrition Services team members or send an email to email@example.com to place an order for a Thursday meal pick-up after class.
We are grateful for the ability to continue providing this important service for the children of our community through the funding support of Federal and State agencies.
