Red Hawk Update

Manchester High School: Wednesday, January 12, 2022

From The Principal

Dear MHS Red Hawk Community,


Please know that our staff is ready to support your student and family as we all continue to adjust to quickly changing circumstances. Despite the challenges, we are working to keep students focused on important aspects of their lives


  • staying healthy, safe and caring for their families and friends
  • having a strong academic finish to semester 1 which ends on January 21
  • reflecting on their growth and their college and career plan as grade 9 students begin the process of choosing the best academy for them, grade 10 students participate in reverse job shadows, grade 11 students prepare for a mock job interview, and grade 12 students focus on graduation and finalizing their post-secondary plan
  • getting involved in school and community activities


Please reach out to your child's teacher, school counselor, assistant principal or me with any questions or concerns.




-- Katelyn Miner
