Do not hesitate to reach out to our academic team regarding any questions or concerns you may have. While remote instruction continues to be the most popular choice for instruction at MIC, we have been able to welcome a limited number of students into our campuses for in-person instruction this fall.

 

MIC is strongly committed to implementing and enforcing procedures which are designed to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe while receiving in-person instruction at our campuses. Please review some key procedures outlined below. You can also watch a short video about what to expect at MIC upon arrival to our campuses and visit our COVID FAQ.

What should I do if my child or I have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19?

MIC staff will immediately notify every visitor who might have come in close contact with the person testing positive.

If a temperature is above 100.4 degrees and/or you answer affirmatively to any screening question, you will not be permitted to enter the building. You will need to reschedule your lesson with your teacher in accordance with the make-up lesson policy. It is preferable to stay home and reschedule in advance, as mentioned above.

Do MIC staff members have the authority to refuse entry to students and other visitors?
Yes. Strict protocols are being observed in the best interests of everyone.
