Order Uniforms Online

Due to supply and vendor changes, MESA has switched to an online service that will allow parents to order uniform polos online. We will not sell them at the school anymore.

This year, ALL grade levels will wear the sky blue polos. However, if your scholar has an older green polo that fits, they can wear it.

Last day to order is July 31st, 2022 to get them by the first day of school.

INTRODUCING TEACH FROM HOME

To support the hundreds of millions of students and educators currently facing school closures, we’re introducing Teach from Home—a hub providing information, tips, training and tools to help remote teaching and learning.
Recent weeks have been especially challenging for teachers, students, and families as schools close and normal routines are disrupted. This transition is all the more daunting for educators who aren’t yet comfortable using technology, let alone our tools, so we want to make it easier to get started. To help with that, we’ve developed Teach from Home, a temporary hub of information and tools to help teachers during this crisis. You’ll find resources to enable remote instruction, student engagement, collaboration with peers, and more.
