This Week's ASB Announcements
An Important Reminder for ALL Students: Bring a Charged Chromebook to School Every Day
During the past week (since last Friday), MVHS had 3 new cases of COVID-19 among students/staff members.
School community members can also follow up-to-the-minute data on our District's COVID-19 Dashboard.
What Happens if My Student is Sent Home to Quarantine?
Students on quarantine should check their Canvas tiles daily for key information and assignments for each course. Additionally, a staff member will check in with all students at noon daily to ensure they have access to what they need. In some cases, students will be invited to work on coursework (namely math, English, and social studies) during the check-in sessions.
Students who have specific questions are encouraged to contact teachers directly. All students on quarantine are entitled to an opportunity to make up any work missed.
