Network Issues

MCS Community,
At the beginning of Christmas break, the computer network for Middlebury Community Schools experienced a virus outbreak.  In response to this, the technology department took the network down as quickly as it could in order to stop the spread of the virus.  MCS also contacted and began working with two different entities that specialize in situations such as this.  It was determined that our data was not compromised and is safe.  The school system has backups of data and the technology department has been working to bring systems back online in an orderly manner to ensure that the network is protected and safe.  In response to this, all students and staff will be asked to reset their login password upon returning to school.  All students with a school-issued Windows laptop will also need to turn it in so that the proper new protections can be put in place on each device.  Chromebooks and personal devices are not affected by this issue.  It will take some time for systems to return to normal.  We thank you for your understanding and apologize for inconveniences that this will cause.  Please rest assured that Middlebury Community Schools takes the safety of students and staff seriously and are working to continue to provide a quality and digitally-enhanced learning environment for all of our students.

Cross Cultural Opportunity: Host a Foreign Exchange Student!

We are looking for a loving family to host a girl from Vietnam who is very excited to attend Northridge High School starting in August 2020. We need to find a placement for her before her visa can be processed.

The host family receives a 500$ monthly stipend, and should provide three meals a day, a bedroom, and a place to study. The student will come with their own health insurance as well as spending money. 

It is a wonderful way to bring a great cultural exchange into your own family.  Please contact Sarah Lavy, the local coordinator, if you are interested. She can be reached at 574-822 5321 and by email at For more information, visit the website below:

Bus transportation will still be available to every student but if your student is a junior or senior, and you wish to take advantage of this, you will need to fill out, date, sign and return this form as soon as possible.
