MPTS Critical Needs Fund
Please join us in helping our families in need!
Myers Park Traditional School’s Leadership Team and PTA have launched the MPTS Critical Needs Fund to support our students and hourly staff to address the adversity many will face during this challenging time. The Fund will provide immediate needs for members of our school community including food, toiletries, funds for necessary medications and will help cover expenses due to loss of employment.
If you would like to help, our MPTS Critical Needs Fund is up and running. Please click below to make a tax-deductible donation. Gifts of all sizes are welcome and appreciated as we come together to address the needs of our school family!
Below is the current information regarding COVID-19 updates at Myers Park Traditional school. We will be posting updates as they come in to help keep our families informed.
SCHOOL CLOSED UNTIL MAY 15
On March 23 Govenor Roy Cooper announced that all public schools in North Carolina will remain closed for in-person instruction until May 15. The decision was made amid the rapidly evolving COVID-19 crisis.
The focus remains on remote learning and meal preparation and distribution, and the Department of Public Instruction already has teams planning for schools and legislative requests that will be required as students remain out of school. DPI is working with the governor's team, State Board of Education and the General Assembly.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will provide grab and go meals while schools are closed. Lunch (and breakfast for the next day) will be served in participating school’s parking lots. Meals are free for anyone 18-years old and under. Children must be present to receive meals.
