Principal News & Notes

an e-newsletter from Principal Bruggers

March 27, 2020

I hope this email finds you and your family doing well. Following an Executive Order issued by Governor Walz, schools are closed until Monday, May 4. During this closure, MVHS will provide instruction to students via Google Classroom. All students should use their school-issued Chromebook to access course material beginning Monday, March 30.

Our mission statement is to “build an inclusive community of responsible, respectful, and resourceful citizens who value learning”. Now, more than ever, we have an opportunity to come together as a school and community to fulfill our mission by keeping each other safe, healthy and engaged in a positive learning experience. I look forward to embarking on this new experience with all of our students, staff and families.

I believe whole-heartedly in our teachers. They have been planning diligently for the past week to make this process as smooth and productive as possible for students. We will be here to guide, support, and celebrate your success along the way. Please be flexible and patient and don’t hesitate to ask questions as distance learning becomes our new norm until May 4. We are all in this together.

Student Expectations

Spring Sports and Activities/Extracurricular Events
