National Poetry Month

Launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month reminds the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K–12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, families, and, of course, poets, marking poetry's important place in our lives. In 2021, the Academy of American Poets looks forward to celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of this annual celebration!

MCS teachers and staff who are ages 50 and older will be eligible to go to any Stanislaus County clinic for vaccination.

COVID-19 Shot

In early February, the National Education Association (NEA) surveyed its members and found that only 1 in 5 (19 percent) had been vaccinated, and only 17 percent had scheduled an appointment to receive one.

One month later, a new NEA survey shows the pace of educator vaccinations is accelerating.

The poll of 3,000 members found that nearly half (49 percent) have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, a huge increase over the 19 percent reported in February. An additional 36 percent have scheduled, or intend to schedule, their vaccination. According to the poll, 87 percent are willing to work in-person if they are fully vaccinated (read more).
