Rougher Roundup Parent Edition

3 Houses - 1 Rougher Family (February 2021 Edition)

8 powerful quotes to celebrate Black History Month

Note from the Principal

Dear Rougher families,


2021 is underway and we are excited for all that lies ahead. The staff at MHS is here to help students in any way possible and it seems that life is throwing the kitchen sink at our students these days. We are aware of the many challenges they face at school, at home, at work and around town. Sometimes, that special teacher, counselor or other staff member is the one person a student feels comfortable with and will work hard to succeed just for them or confide a troubling situation with them. We want to be here for the students and we want our students here so we can serve them. Attendance is an early indicator of successes or struggles later in life. In a time when absences may seem to be easy and unimportant to some, I want to stress the need for our students to attend school daily, if they are able to do so.


The importance of attending school regularly, whether in person or virtually, cannot be over emphasized. State law requires students to be in regular attendance at school and charges parents with assuring such attendance by students until graduation or age eighteen (18). MHS will work in conjunction with parents to know the whereabouts of each student, both for assurance of a quality education and for the safety of each student. Absences in excess of 9 days per semester will result in parent notification by the House office. Excessive absences generally have a negative impact on the academic success of our students.


MHS staff wants to see our students in our halls and classrooms and I want all parents and guardians to know how much we enjoy interacting with your amazing teenagers. They are missed when they are not here so please let us know if we can be of any assistance in ensuring your student's daily attendance.


Have a wonderful day and remember that it is always a great day to be a Rougher!
