School News & Reminders

First Marking Period - Interim Reports & End of Marking Period

Interim Reports will be issued on October 13th for students. This will mark the halfway point of marking period. Students need to make sure they are regularly checking Genesis to ensure that they have handed in all of their assignments and made up any tests or quizzes from when they have been absent. In general, pupils will be allowed 1 day to make up missed work for each one day of absence. The first marking period will conclude on November 9th.

Lateness to School/Lateness to Class

We all run late sometimes. Sometimes a child will feel sick or tired some mornings, or other situations will prevent them from being on time. And as you've likely experienced by now, the older children get, the less likely they are to leap out of bed on their own at a reasonable hour.

But chronic lateness eventually takes its toll on your child's overall educational experience. When students come to class late, not only does it mean they've missed important instruction, it can disrupt the flow of a lecture or discussion, distract other students, impede learning, and generally erode class morale. It forces the teacher to catch each student up as they enter the class which then interferes with the amount of time the teacher has for the day's lesson.

You can track your child's daily attendance as well as their class attendance in the parent portal. If you click on the drop down menu on the left, then click on attendance and if you further click on daily attendance in the left hand corner, you will see a drop down menu that allows you to see their individual class attendance. Students who are chronically late to school receive detention which can also be seen in the parent portal.

Student Safety During Drop and Pick Up

The health, safety, and security of our students remain a top priority for our district. We want to share again our student drop off procedures for Middlesex High School. In order to reduce some traffic congestion, we recommend that students in grades 9 and 10 enter through the front entrance of the school at Door #1 while students in grades 11 and 12 enter through the rear of the school at Door #14. Door #14 is at the back of the school off Second Street. Parents should form a one way loop using the road closest to the pool (Milton Place) to come in and drop off at the back door and leave out the road second closest to Route 28 (Pearl Place). The road closest to Route 28 has a sign that reads "This is not an exit".

If parents wish to drop their child off and then access Bound Brook Road eastbound (towards Dunellen), the safest way to do that would be by traveling behind the school and accessing any of the side streets (Second, First, High, Main or North Lincoln) to access Bound Brook Road. This would alleviate further congestion and backups on Van Ness Drive and be safer for all motorists in the area.

Students walking to school and wising to cross Bound Brook Road shall obey all traffic signals and shall do so only at the pedestrian signal located at Bound Brook Road and John F. Kennedy Drive, manned by a crossing guard 7:30-8:30am and 2:30-3:30pm on school days.

Please try to plan accordingly based on traffic at that time of day. Our school is open for students starting at 7:20am. School starts promptly at 8am. Thank you!

Leaving School Early

While we would prefer that parents schedule appointments for their children for afterschool hours, we understand that it is sometimes not possible. If your child needs to leave school early, please provide us with a note in advance letting us know what time your child needs to leave, whether they will be returning, and who will be picking them up. Please note that students need to be in school for 4 hours for the day to count for attendance. Students under 18 cannot sign themselves out.

If your child is not feeling well after arriving at school, they need to go to the nurses office to be evaluated before they can be released from school.

MHS Digital Announcement Board

In order to keep everyone informed of all of the various events and initiatives at the high school - whether in school or virtual - we have created the MHS Digital Announcement Board which can be accessed from the high school website. Please refer often to it for the latest announcements!
