Summer Programs

MCI continues to closely monitor modifications and recommendations as outlined by the Maine Center for Disease Control and the Maine Department of Education in regard to the COVID19 pandemic. To date, MCI continues to plan for revised summer programming opportunities for students. Our school nurse and administrators are taking all necessary precautions to ensure that safe summer experiences are possible for students. Should a safe experience not be possible, we will update the public as soon as possible.
