MHS Thirty-ninth Friday 6-8-18

Good afternoon!

I’ve been as busy as a bee this week, getting ready for exams, getting Chromebook collection in order, closing books for the school year and even attending a retirement party (or two).  The exam schedule for next week is below.  The schedule is the same as semester exams.  The first dismissal time listed is for students who finish exams early.  If a student doesn’t finish early, s/he has until the time of final dismissal for that hour to complete the exam.  Students are not required to attend Open Study on Wednesday and Thursday, but the cafeteria and media center (as well as some classrooms) are available for students who wish to study.  If you have any questions about the exam schedule, please feel free to contact me.  

Parents of Graduates,  there is a link on the MPS website labeled “Senior-Off-Boarding”.  It has important information regarding email accounts, file management and device and student ID instructions.  This is very important information as they leave Midland High School.  Please visit the attached link.  https://new.midlandps.org/wp-content/uploads/Senior-Off-Boarding-1.pdf

AND don’t forget that Schaffert Studio took a picture of each graduate in their cap & gown as they accepted their diploma.  You can order your child’s picture online at www.SchaffertStudio.com

Report cards are scheduled to be published to Home Access Center on June 22nd.  If your student’s report card indicates grades are on “HOLD”, this means that the student did not turn all textbooks, library books, athletic uniforms, music uniforms or other items belonging to the school.  Please contact MHS to find out what the missing item is.

Midland Public Schools has a new Secondary Attendance Policy.  The current version in the Chemic Handbook and will soon be updated on the MHS website.  This new policy went into effect on Wednesday, February 7th when it was presented to students.  I have attached it here:  Attendance Policy 2-6-18.pdf   If you have questions regarding this policy, please contact Assistant Principals Matt Wenzell or Bob Scurfield for clarification..

Parents/Guardians!  Please check Home Access and make sure your students contacts, address and phone numbers are up-to-date.  It is required that schools have “proof of residency” on each student every time they move.  A copy of a bill with the parent/guardian name and address on it would serve as the proof.  It is very important that this information is kept up to date so you don’t miss any correspondence from the school or we need to contact in case of emergency.  If you have any questions please call Cheryl Gardner, Registrar, at 923-5188.

With Chemic Pride,
Lori Kennemer
