Good Afternoon MHS Families,


I wanted to provide more information about our return to the Connected Model, which starts on Monday, November 16. Students' morning classes will begin at 7:30, and their last class of the day ends at 2:30.

During the Connected model, the High School will follow our A/B block schedule. Please see the calendar for the rest of November and December.

We have enjoyed having students in the building during our Blended model, and our goals during Connected remain the same. We want to support our students and provide the best experience possible during this time. The revised Connected schedule has a large amount of time dedicated to student intervention. We will be offering opportunities for daily student intervention, both in person and virtually. A student will have access to their teachers during Intervention time through Google Meet and can also schedule in person appointments. Transportation will be available for students who need it. Teachers, counselors, and administrators will be contacting families to set up appointments while we are in the Connected model, as well.


We have seen an improvement in overall student engagement and grades in the recent weeks and hope to build on that momentum as we move to the Connected model. Please continue to encourage your students to stay motivated during this time and attend class regularly. Whether they are a senior approaching graduation or a freshman trying to build a strong foundation for their high school experience, this year is important. The classes, grades, and credits from this semester are needed to help your student have a successful high school experience.
