RETURN TO IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION FOR 2020-2021
We are excited to kick off the 2020-2021 school year with in-person instruction and see this as the best option for high-quality elementary education. This comes with the understanding that not everyone is comfortable with this option. For that reason, we are looking at possibilities of offering an online option for families who are not yet ready to have their students return to the in-person classroom environment. We will continue to communicate with families as we explore these opportunities in what we are able to offer.
In the event that Michigan is placed back in Phase 3 of the reopening plan, MCS will delay the start of the school year up to two weeks in order to make adjustments and that time may be added to the end of the school year.
PowerSchool is a private and secure parents’ portal that allows parents to view information specific to their children while protecting their children’s information from others.

SCRIP (T.R.I.P.) PROGRAM
SCRIP (T.R.I.P.) is a volunteer-run program that helps you pay down your tuition while you shop! There are over 500 local & national retailers that participate. Those retailers sell gift cards to MCS at a reduced rate, we sell them to you, and you redeem them, at full face value. The difference between the MCS purchased price and the face value is then credited to your tuition account.
There are many ways you can volunteer at MCS, including:
- PPO Committee
- Large-scale mailings
- Special events including the Auction and Golf Outing
- Friday Prayers and Projects Crew
- DIBS! On Resale
- All the profits from DIBS! On Resale go to support the 4 WMC Schools- Muskegon Christian, Western Michigan Christian, Grand Haven Christian, and New Era Christian. They would love for you to volunteer! More information is available on the DIBS! Facebook page, their website or by calling (231) 798-2252.
Your service makes a huge difference in our school! All MCS families are asked to volunteer 20 hours of their time (10 hours if they have students at WMC or single parent families) at MCS. Volunteering at DIBS! On Resale qualifies for these hours. Please call the Muskegon Christian School office at 231-773-3221 or email us for more information on volunteering.
