Tech support is available for MPS staff and for MPS families during the extended school shutdown.

Ready4k Available for Free for the rest of the School Year!

Dear Friends,

In response to the unprecedented number of schools, preschools, and child care providers that have closed due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19),we are making Ready4K, our virtual parenting curriculum and family engagement tool, free for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year.

Visit https://ready4k.parentpowered.com/covid.html for details.

Ready4K is an evidence-based whole child curriculum that offers fun facts and at-home learning activity ideas for children ages 0-9, all delivered via text message. Implementation is quick and easy, so all of your families can start getting activities within a week.

Effective immediately we are implementing several changes to Ready4K to better serve families and partners during this difficult time.

Additional support messages focused on COVID-19 topics, like hygiene, dealing with pandemic anxiety, and social connection in a virtual world

Providing a communications system for sharing vital information with your families, including a dedicated messaging number and unlimited messaging through the end of the school year

Enhanced support for families with more than one child with activities for each child based on age or grade level

To get the Ready4K Core program for free for the remainder of the school year, download the application or contact us at info@ready4k.com.

We’re thankful to be able to offer virtual, evidence-based supports to families during the COVID-19 pandemic and look forward to working with you.

Wishing you and your families all the best during this challenging time,

Do You or Someone You Know Need Additional Support During This Time? 

Midland Public Schools is a member of the Midland County COVID-19 Coalition, a team of community organizations united in identifying and resourcing community needs.

This support can be food beyond the school provided meals, home supplies, personal hygiene items, school supplies, or other necessities.  Please don’t hesitate to fill out the survey to let us know how our community may be of assistance during these tough, unprecedented times.  Link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/J8R9MVV
