Attention MES Students and Staff: Due to some air conditioning problems, the School District of DeSoto will not reopen for students until Wednesday, September 20, 2017. All district facilities have electrical power. With the exception of Memorial Elementary School, all district facilities have air conditioning at this time. We are working to have the air conditioning restored quickly at Memorial Elementary School.


The district is implementing the following reopening schedule:


• All district and school offices will reopen on Monday, September 18, 2017. All school and district level administrators, school and district office staff personnel, custodians, and maintenance workers should report on September 18, 2017, in order to complete final work for the student reopening.


• All remaining employees should report to work on September 19, 2017, to prepare for the reopening on September 20, 2017.

• Students should report on September 20, 2017.

• At this time, we will only have to temporarily relocate five bus stops. This will be updated on September 19, 2017.

•This information will also be distributed through a district Robo call. In addition, a posting will appear on the district website and the DeSoto Emergency Operations’ Center Facebook site. Updates will be distributed as necessary.

Employees that cannot follow this schedule must communicate with their supervisors. Students that do not report to school on September 20, 2017, and until further notice are to receive an excused absence.
