Middle College returns to in-person classes

As virtual learning comes to a close, the Middle College is welcoming students back to campus for a normal school year.

The first day back was Sept. 7. All students were on campus for in-person classes.

Previously, MCMC was offering blended and online options. 

“Very motivating and definitely a sense of renewal,” said Robert Krueger, MCMC principal, regarding having students back on campus. Krueger has been principal since the school’s first year in 2009. 

With the return of in person learning, students can look forward to in-person events. The dates have already been set for homecoming and graduation. 

Fifth year Alarrah Martin experienced the shift from in-person classes to fully remote classes. She expressed relief about being able to attend in-person classes again.

“It’s like a breath of fresh air,” Martin said about the return to campus. 

MCMC is now entering their fourth week of classes. 

“I hope that they can get settled into a routine and feel like they’re part of the school again,” said Krueger.
