Ident-A-Kid

 

MMS wanted to remind visitors to our schools that this year, for the safety of our students and staff, the Ident-A-Kid software at each of our MGSD schools will require visitors to present and scan a valid form of ID (e.g. driver's license/state ID) each and every time you visit a school. In the past, the ID was stored in the system for the entire school year, but this new safety measure is now in place at all of our campuses this year. Thank you for your understanding regarding this new practice and for your continued support in keeping our campuses safe and secure for everyone in MGSD!

Please reach out to our Central Office or your child's school if you have questions. Thank you!

The 2019 football jamboree will be held at Mooresville Middle School on Wednesday, August 14th starting at 6:00 PM.
