COVID-19 Information for STudents and parents
All Mountain Education Charter High School locations will remain closed until further notice due to the impact of COVID-19 in our communities. Because national and state information about the coronavirus changes daily, we are unable to make decisions about when school will resume. Online learning will continue Monday through Thursday from 4-9 pm. We have had great success with virtual learning thus far with over 850 students actively engaged. Please remember only current students may access the online learning platform. We appreciate your patience as we work to continue to serve all students. We encourage you to make safe and healthy choices.
