Let's Go bulldogs!

Dear Mexico 59 Parents and Community: 

Your support and patience during the COVID-19 closure is greatly appreciated. We are all experiencing an unprecedented time in history and certainly not the way we would choose to end the school year. While our buildings on campus are on modified work schedules at this time, all of our employees continue to work hard to provide support for our students. If you need to reach an employee, you can view the staff list here; all emails are staff first initial and last name with @mexico.k12.mo.us. Or you may call Central Office at 573-581-3773.

We will continue to provide updates throughout the summer. Our Mexico 59 educators continue to value teaching, learning, and caring - our #MEX59TLC. And as citizens and neighbors in our community, we can support one another through this time and grow together. As always, if you need to reach your school or teacher, please let us know so we can work to support you, your family, and our community.

SIGN UP FOR A CURBSIDE MEAL HERE if you are a parent or guardian who will pick up a curbside meal without a child present. 

The child must be present to receive meals OR the parent or legal guardian may pick up meals without the child present, only if they sign up online at least by the day before pickup. Those who sign up must pick up meals at Mexico Middle and Mexico High as your reservation will be scheduled at these locations; you will give your name at the curbside pick up. Families will only need to sign up once, and you will stay on the list until you let us know otherwise.
