Mustang News - October 1st, 2021

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall." - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Fall, harvest, autumn... words that describe a fresh start of a new, golden season.The Mustangs are settling into the school year as we head into October. Parent/Teacher conferences are on the horizon, and we encourage families to connect with staff members. This is a perfect check in time for parents and guardians to gain perspective on their students classes, accomplishments, and challenges. We appreciate the opportunity to create relationships with the MSHS community. Conferences will be held on October 21st & 22nd with more information coming soon. Happy fall! 🍂

For the safety of our students and staff, please keep the following protocols in mind in the MSHS parking lot -

Please use the left lane of travel for student drop off/pick up. Pull as far down the lane as possible allowing others to utilize the space behind you.

Please DO NOT drop off in the right lane. It is for through traffic only.

Please be aware of students crossing in the parking lot.

Please be on the lookout for student drivers backing out of and pulling into spaces.

We appreciate your efforts in helping us with parking lot safety and awareness.
