Wolf Pack Weekly
October 16th, 2020
"Classic" Classes to Resume Tuesday, October 20th.
Please see this general FAQ about what the reopening of in-person learning will look like at MVHS.
Note: Over the past two weeks, there has been much speculation, rumor, and sometimes even misinformation making its way throughout the learning community about what the Classic Learning experience will be like for students. Our goal is to provide meaningful and engaging learning opportunities for students while mimicking the "traditional" in-person learning experience to the extent possible. Many safety measures and protocols will be in place, and students will be required to wear masks, but we are very much looking forward to having students back on campus.
Model Change Requests
Our District has indicated that families will have an opportunity to request a model change again for the Spring term, which begins in January.

Campus Hours and Drop-Off Map for Classic Students
Campus Opens for Students at 7:30am.: Students are encouraged to begin arriving to campus no earlier than 7:30am.
Campus Closes for Students at 3:15pm: The final class period of the day ends at 2:30, and optional office hours are available until 3:00pm. Campus will close for students at 3:15pm. Students are expected to be off-campus by that time.
Loitering in the parking lot before or after school will not be permitted.
Drop-off and Pick-up
Drop Off: Please see the drop-off map below. Students may be dropped off at any location that is along the yellow line. Students who drive to campus will be directed to one of two crosswalks (Theater and Counseling) to enter campus from the parking lot.
Pick-up: Dismissal begins at 2:30pm each day, and students will exit campus through one of several exit gates. Parents picking up students in the afternoon will be asked to park in our lot (not in any area labeled as a fire lane) and wait for their student. Students walking off campus will need to use designated crosswalks, which will be staffed by campus supervisors.
Opportunity for On-Campus Freshman Orientation
Freshmen students in the "Classic" model who submitted an RSVP to participate in Monday's Orientation will receive details over the weekend about the event. We are looking forward to the chance to meet our newest Timberwolves (in person) and show them around.
Students will be excused from their classes on Monday; they will, however, need to make up any work that is missed.
