    Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,
    I hope you are enjoying your Summer of 2020!  The MLK Staff wishes all of our students and their families a safe and wonderful summer.  Be sure to spend a lot of time playing outside and enjoying the sunshine.  Also, be sure to take some time each day and read.  Read a book, a newspaper, a cereal box, or anything else you see with print on it. 
    We look forward to seeing you when we return to school on September 8th.  Keep a lookout for a mailing at the end of August with important information about an Orientation Event, school supplies and more.
    The 2019-2020 school year ended abruptly due to COVID-19 and we are eagerly awaiting to hear about plans for returning in September.   As soon as information is released, I will be sure to share it with parents.  If you move or change your phone number, be sure to contact the school so we have your updated information for phone calls and mailings. 
    See you soon and HAPPY SUMMER!
