Announcements for the week of August 8, 2022 include:
Thank you for another great week. I hope you enjoyed the rain.
It was an eventful week, our counseling department ran our first T-bird class meetings. I was able to attend two of them. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the junior and senior meetings this time around, but I look forward to the next ones.
Procedures for upcoming events were reviewed. The first is Spirit Days. Our first spirit day is coming Thursday August 11. This date is also OPEN HOUSE. The day will begin with students showing their student spirit and pride in all things T-bird. Service shirts, Club shirts, college shirts, class shirts, and team shirts are allowed. Spirit days are awarded by administration, and governed by the student council. Please make sure you are wearing your uniforms Monday thru Thursday. Spirit days and spirit shirts will be scheduled for Thursdays.
Open House is August 11th. Parents/guardians come meet the teachers, we will also host a variety of resources and support booths. Open House begins at 4:30pm - 6:30 pm. We are looking forward to meeting each of you.
Following Open House staff, students, and their families are invited to the football field at 6:30pm until sunset at our T-bird Kickoff. Students will be treated to a barbecue, games on the field, board games off the field, and a traditional sunset appreciation. For more information, see the flier on MHS’s webpage and/or our social media page.
Parents/guardians thank you so much for your patience during student drop off in the mornings. We have been watching the clock, and we want to do better. We are going to start a two-by-two drop off. In order for this to work, we will also direct you to one of our two exits. The first is HWY 95, please stay alert as some of our student drivers come in through the front gate.
Line two will be directed toward our south exit. Please watch for students crossing. When you pass through the exit you have two options, take a right toward Train Road, and then to Hancock. OR you may take a left toward Marina. We are hoping to cut your wait times.
Again we appreciate you for not using handicap parking spaces as U Turns. We have students that are being dropped off and escorted to classes, the need to use those spaces safely.
Student & Staff drivers parking pass applications are available. Bring with you a copy of your registration, and your drivers’ license. Parent/Guardian signatures are required: You must obey the parking lot speed limits…SLOW DOWN! When you exit your cars, get to a sidewalk quickly. Please be safe.
September 9th is being changed to a flex Friday and the Staff training day is being moved to September 16th. Students please remind your parents/guardians of the calendar change.
Breakfast & Lunch is available in the cafeteria to all students, although lunch is not free to all students this year, unless they qualify. Students are able to pre-pay for their lunch by adding money to their student account in the lunchroom. All parents/guardians are encouraged to fill out the Free and reduced lunch forms and return them with your students before the end of August.
MHS is a Nut-Free campus. Please remind your student not to bring any peanuts, peanut butter sandwiches, or anything with nuts to school. Visit our webpage for more information.
