The PTO has heard concerns from many families about how we can help keep our students, teachers, and staff safe, and we share your concerns. After consulting with MIMS administrators, we’ve decided to purchase air purifiers with HEPA filtration for every one of our classrooms, and the cafeteria.
As you can imagine, this is a huge undertaking. Some classes have already purchased air purifiers for their rooms, so our goal is to be able to purchase 53 more, plus replacement filters. We are consulting with multiple companies to find the best quality and price, but this will still cost tens of thousands of dollars.
When we have more details about units, pricing, and timeline, we will be sure to share those details. In the meantime, we wanted to open up our donation link to everyone. We can only accomplish this if we all work together, so please give if you are able. MIMS PTO is a 501c3, and can provide tax receipts upon request.
We’ve also gotten questions from families about purchasing plexiglass dividers for the classrooms, and cleaning supplies for their teachers. At this time, all teachers have declined offers of plexiglass, and MIMS is fully stocked with cleaning supplies. We hope you will consider directing your energies towards this project!
