Student Safety Reminders

Safety and Security of Our Scholars: Signing In/Out When Leaving Campus is MANDATORY!!!

Parents, please discuss the importance of your child signing in/out when leaving the campus. We have seen an increase in students getting picked up by other individuals who are Non-MSHS scholars. The safety and security of your child matter to us. Individuals picking up your student not on the list to pick them up as identified in Skyward will receive a citation for trespassing/criminal trespassing warning.

Student Drivers/Student Passengers

Reminder to parents about student drivers:

Parents, please talk to your child about safe driving. Recently there has been reckless driving in our campus parking lot in which accidents have occurred. Non-licensed/Non-insured students are not permitted to drive to campus, nor should they have passengers in a vehicle with them.

Any student that is driving on campus, you will need to purchase a parking permit. Please come to the front office to pick up a form to complete.

College, Career, Military Ready

SAT Registration Dates and Deadlines are attached. To obtain a SAT Fee Waiver, all seniors are to use the following process:

The process for a senior (preference over juniors) to obtain a SAT fee waiver to use to register for an upcoming SAT is the following:

1. Email Senia Deshay (senia.deshay@manorisd.net) and copy Patricia Reyes (patricia.reyes@manorisd.net) and Melanie Henson (melanie.henson@manorisd.net) and ask if you are eligible to receive a SAT fee waiver and to request a SAT fee waiver if you are.

2. Ms. Deshay will verify if you qualify for a fee waiver in Skyward. If you are eligible, Ms. Deshay will assign a fee waiver code to you and email it to you.

3. You will use the fee waiver code to register for the appropriate SAT.

4. You can use the same SAT fee waiver code twice - you can retake the SAT one more time at no cost. You can only get one fee waiver your junior/senior year. You do not get one your junior year to test twice and one your senior year to test twice. You get one SAT fee waiver and can use it to test twice.

5. The student may not give the fee waiver code to anyone else.

Please contact Dr. Melanie Henson, CCMR Advisor/Coordinator at melanie.henson@manorisd.net if you have any questions.


SAT Registration Dates and Deadlines: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jjT_o-DzrJ6130shVx8Hvcvm_h2xOFpM4yx7OgoS_-8/edit?usp=sharing


Seniors need to email Dr. Henson at melanie.henson@manorisd.net and set an appointment to discuss their senior and CCMR requirements for graduation. Whether the senior is interested in college, career, or the military, every senior will do at least one application, apply for scholarships and for financial aid.


Contact Dr. Henson at melanie.henson@manorisd.net or text 254.913.2853 to begin senior requirements for graduation.
