Hi All,


Here are the key updates for the week:



  • Instructions for Senior "Locker Clean Out" pick up/drop off will be sent shortly to all seniors and their parents/guardians. Please look for it and give it a close read.


  • Instructions for "Locker Clean Out" for all other students will be forthcoming in the next week or so, and pickup/drop off will take place in June. Please begin pulling together all text books, uniforms, and other items that are school property in anticipation of the return.


  • Progress reports for all underclass students will be made available via the Aspen/X2 portal on May 27th. We will send out instructions for access prior to release; please remember that grading for Q4 is on a Pass/Fail basis (check out the MHS Remote Learning Plan grading system on the MPS COVID-19 website).


  • Many thanks to the Boosters and especially to Roberta Sullivan for the beautiful banner installed at MHS today- #apartwearetogether- (see below).


  • Students, be sure to vote for your Class Officers! See below for details.


  • Check out our MHS Art Show 2020 below.


Please continue to look for regular communication from me on Fridays. I will archive all communication on the MPS COVID-19 website (click on “School Resources” side tab, and then on “Mansfield High School”) so that you can locate it easily.


Best regards,



Mary Watkins
