  • Inter-District and Inter-Zone Transfers

    If your child is enrolled at MTS as a transfer from another school or district, this is a reminder that the transfer needs to be renewed each year. Please make sure that your form for the 2017-18 school year is on file with Tami Collins (709-7007) at the District Office. This will ensure that your child is on the waiting list for the next school year. Forms are available at our school office or at the District Office. The District Office will begin accepting these forms on MARCH 1, 2017.
