Student & Family Update

8/18/2021

Dear Students and Families,

We are counting down the days until we get to welcome you back for the 2021-2022 school year! Below is information for upcoming events and other information you will need prior to the start of school.

Welcome/Registration Days

MTRS will be hosting two welcome/registration days: Wednesday, August 25 from 7am-10am and Thursday, August 26 from 3:30pm-7:00pm. Please see below for activities that will happen during these days (masks are required):


  • Students in grades 8-12 will be able to pick up their Chromebooks (Grade 7 will receive them when they start school)

  • Caregivers will be able to secure access to Aspen which is how you can access a student’s schedule and grades

  • Guidance counselors will be on hand to support student schedules

  • Caregivers can update contact information and complete the beginning of the year paperwork for the main office and health office

  • Athletics information will be available

  • Tours of the building


*7th Grade Families*
Mrs. Woof has teamed up with our Athletic Director (and some amazing parent volunteers) to offer a few fun activities JUST for our incoming Class of 2027! Get a chance to get to know your classmates before the start of the school year (think relay races; a scavenger hunt, and more!). This 7th grade connection event will be held during the THURSDAY (8/26) welcome and registration night from 5:30-7PM. Stop by to complete your paperwork, get a tour of the building, ask questions, and have a little fun!


We hope to see you there! If you have any questions specific to the 7th grade event, contact Mrs. Woof at awoofenden@mtrsd.org or Ms. Ruggeri (truggeri@mtrsd.org).
