A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students
January 15, 2021
Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,
Can you believe the end of first semester is right around the corner? It sure seems like it flew by. Let’s make sure to finish strong and use this weekend to get prepared to do your best on the final exams next week. The schedule for the week can be found here. Remember, MHS is an open campus during our final exams. If your student does not have an exam, they may leave MHS. If you do not want them to leave, their scheduled class will be open for a quiet study area.
In addition to wrapping up the semester, we are also amidst the time of year to register for courses for the 2021/22 school year. All registration information has been shared with our students and families via Infinite Campus. It can also be found on our website by clicking on the Course Registration link. Please take some time to talk with your student about the courses they are interested in taking next year. Course selection is an important part of the Academic and Career Planning process and these decisions can be very impactful in helping students find their path for life after high school. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to your school counselor or an administrator.
Thank you for your continued partnership and support.
Have an awesome weekend and GO WARRIORS!

Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests
Our schools continue to be open and our curricular co-curricular activities are operational under our local health department guidelines. However, it is important to draw our families' attention to an overriding principle. Although we love to see our whole community at each of our district's events; during this unprecedented time, we are asking our families to operate under a singular school community and singular family mindset when attending events. Essentially, keeping each school's events to just that school's clientele and only the families with active participants or performers in the event.
Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests
Beginning January 7, 2021, the Classic 8 has issued a revision to the Winter Sport Spectator Guidelines.
Home spectators remain at 4 immediate family members per participating athlete. NEW: Visiting spectators are limited to 2 immediate family members per visiting participating athlete.
Still in effect:
Admission to all Classic 8 contests are not open to the general public, students, and staff.
An appropriate mask/face covering, as directed by Gov. Evers, must be worn at all times.
For away contests, please consult our Activities website, 1Warrior.org, or the opponent's home website for streaming links.
We recognize that many of our students' support systems are their family members and it means a great deal to our students to have their closest advocates in attendance supporting their athletic, musical, and leadership endeavors. We are excited to see our students in their winter season performances, competitions, and school community-building events!
