Our Big Ideas

Your Choice

As parents/guardians, you have a choice when it comes to your child’s education. You can choose to enroll your child in virtual school or in-person school for 2020-2021 – see more details outlined below.

Team Melissa

We must be partners and work together in order to provide the best possible experience for the students of Melissa Schools, with health and safety being our top priority.


We are living through a pandemic with many unknowns. While we have hope for brighter days ahead, the fact is that we are in a “waiting game” and the situation is changing every day. Let’s offer each other grace as we navigate this together.
