Just a reminder - Effective immediately because of construction, our drop off/pick up locations for students at both MMS and MHS have changed. All car riders should be dropped off at the MHS entrance. With the drive being closed near the baseball diamond, all cars should enter and exit on the north drive by the softball field. Buses will be dropping off/picking up out front of the MMS building using the circle drive. Cars SHOULD NOT enter that area until after 8:00 a.m. If you will be picking up your child before 2:00 p.m., you can do so at the MMS entrance. Otherwise, you will need to pick up at the MHS doors. If your child is going home from school sick, we will still utilize door #2 near the nurse's office/Unit office. Thank you in advance for helping with this!
1st quarter midterm reports were sent home with students earning at least one D or F in a Core subject. These reports need to be signed and returned to the appropriate grade level teacher. In addition, all returning students received their 21/22 IAR reports.
