Greeting MSAD 53 Family,
Thiis message is to inform you that we will be making a change to our breakfast/lunch delivery program.
Meals will continue to be delivered, but beginning March 31st these deliveries will happen on Tuesday and Thursday of each week for families who have signed up. Please note that only three buses will be used, so you need to watch for the bus between 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM. Times have become more consistent as we are more familiar with our delivery route.
Also keep in mind we are delivering 300 + meals at this point. If you would like to be added to the delivery list please call Vickery at 487-5575 or Warsaw at 487-5145 and leave a message with your student name(s), address, and the number of children 18 and under who need meals. Office staff will be adding students to the breakfast/lunch delivery list each Tuesday and Thursday, so please understand that you may not be added for the next delivery day. We need your support to make the process run smoothly.
We ask that you meet us at your bus stop/driveway so that we are not walking up every driveway. We have been overjoyed to see parents/guardians and students with each delivery - we miss you all.

Good afternoon, this message is to inform you that all schools in MSAD 53, including MCI, will remain closed until at least April 27th, 2020.
Meals will continue to be delivered on Monday and Thursday next week to families who signed up. Please note that only three buses will be used, so you need to watch for the bus between 8:00 and 10:00 am. Times should become more consistent as these bus deliveries continue. We are not able to add names to Monday’s list at this time but if you would like to be added to the Thursday delivery list, please call Vickery at 487-5575 or Warsaw at 487-5145 and leave a message with your student names, address, and the number of children 18 and under who need meals. New information will come at the end of next week with regards to future distribution of enrichment packets and meal delivery days. These are unprecedented and challenging times. We are all doing our very best. Take care of each other and stay safe.
Drop Off and Pick Up Reminder for Traffic Flow
The loop in front of Warsaw is one-way in the morning for drop off. Please enter from Somerset Avenue. We will continue to have a crossing guard at the location between Vickery and Warsaw. Families who have children in both buildings can make one drop in the morning. Busses enter from Hartland Avenue and drop students off at Warsaw first and then Vickery. If you enter from Hartland Avenue, please remember to only drop at the crosswalks. Also, the back parking lot at Warsaw is not a drop-off / turn around spot. This creates a very dangerous situation.
During afternoon pick-up we will continue to close the front loop at Warsaw to traffic. Students exiting the buildings to board busses makes this necessary. If you are parked in front of Warsaw during afternoon dismissal, we kindly ask for you to remain parked until all students have exited the building and the busses have left for the day. The gym parking lot at Warsaw will continue to be a pick-up area, along with Vickery’s visitor parking spaces.
Monday morning at MCI an announcement of the first 3 winners of the Champions for Education Awards were announced. The celebration will be on June 19th at MCI. More information about the celebration dinner will be shared as we have all the details.
It is with GREAT PLEASURE that we announce the very first award winner for MSAD #53...
Marilyn Graham!!!!!! Join us in congratulating her. We love you Marilyn!
