March 2nd ACT DAY INFORMATION

Maryville High School will administer the ACT on Tuesday, March 2nd. This is an online administration and all juniors are required to test. Seniors who have not yet met the HOPE scholarship requirement of a composite score of 21, or for whom any subtest is below the college readiness benchmark (English 18; reading 22; math 22; science 23), may opt into this test administration. To opt in, seniors must sign their intention to test on the ACT roster in guidance.

Especially for seniors: MHS is preparing to offer a two day cram course (Saturday, February 20th and Saturday, February 27th from 9:00-1:00 each day). To do so, we must have a minimum of 15 seniors commit to attend. These sessions will be individualized to each student’s goals for score attainment of the above indicated benchmarks. Lunch will be provided and each attendee earns the chance to win gift cards and other incentives. Indicate your desire to attend when you sign the roster in guidance.

Is your student interested in a Dual Enrollment Course?

Dual Enrollment or Early College Experience is the opportunity for students to earn not only high school credit but also college credit hours for college classes taken during their junior and senior years of high school. Students must qualify by having a 3.0 unweighted GPA, and they must have minimum subscores of 19 on the ACT. Likewise, the state of Tennessee provides the Dual Enrollment Grant to students to assist in paying for college tuition. The information for Dual Enrollment can be found at maryville-schools.org, Maryville High School, Classrooms, Dual Enrollment.


If your child is interested in taking DE classes, please complete the Application and Release forms that are below. Please see Mrs. Burchfield if you need additional information.

Clarifying Required Quarantine Times

As you know, the CDC and Tennessee Department of Health have recently made changes to quarantine time frames. Our Health Department has clarified the policies and procedures we are expected to follow. Here are the details you need to know for next semester:



  1. Close contact quarantine is now only 10 days, not 14.
  2. The 10 day quarantine requirement can be shortened with the following stipulations:
  • A student must receive a negative result from a PCR test, not a rapid test.
  • The test must be taken on Day 6 of the quarantine time frame or later.
  • The negative test allows a student to return to school on Day 8 of the quarantine time. Basically, a negative test will allow a student back two days sooner, depending on the length of time it takes to receive the test results.
  • Documentation of the negative test results will be required to re-enter school early and should be provided to the school nurse before a student attends classes.



We know that asking a student to quarantine impacts extracurricular obligations, work obligations, and family plans. Thank you for your continued support as we follow the TDOH guidelines this upcoming semester.

Athletic Events Attendance Update

Governor Lee has lifted restrictions on high school sporting events, and provided local districts the opportunity to determine which restrictions are necessary in their community.


We are excited to welcome the student section and cheerleaders back to our basketball sideline starting February 2nd with our home game vs. Hardin Valley. Not all districts are admitting students, so please make sure you know the policy at the other school before attempting to attend an away game.


MHS will be returning to our policies prior to the Governor's Executive Orders. We will be selling a limited number of tickets through GoFan for each home game.


All guests are expected to wear a face covering and social distance between households.
