Principal’s Message

Mariner Parents and Community,

We are well into the 4th quarter and home stretch of the school year. Our seniors have about 25 school days left and the rest of the students have about 30! There is still plenty of time for engagement and learning to take place. Please continue to monitor your student’s academic progress in Qmlativ. Teachers update their grades at least twice a month. If you have any questions about grades that your student cannot answer, please contact the teacher directly. Please note that we will be on a Spring Testing Schedule coming up on May 24-26. There are more details about this schedule below in the newsletter. I’d also like to remind you that Summer School registration is taking place right now. Summer school is free and it’s a great way for students to get ahead or make up credits. If your student is interested in Summer School, please have them contact their counselor to register. We have a motto at Mariner during the 4th quarter called “Finish Strong”. We have high expectations of our students and staff, and we want them to give it their best until the very end. Thanks for your partnership in your child’s education. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Go Marauders!

Nate DuChesne - Principal

Stay Connected!

Information and news about Mariner High School are available in a variety of formats. This year, you will receive a phone message and email from the district if we close or delay school. This helps ensure we reach everyone, including those without an email address on file, before students stand outside at a bus stop, and before parents leave for work. If you added a text message number in the Blackboard portal you would also receive a text message. As usual, school delays or closures will be posted on the district website and posted through FlashAlert, which also feeds into mainstream local news feeds.
