We are looking forward to a wonderful spirit week next week filled with fun dress up days and a hot chocolate social.

Some important items:

  • Freshmen will have a change to their schedule next semester. School will end at 2:45 on Monday, at 3:20 on Wednesday, and 3:00 on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday
  • Sophomores will have a monetary cost for their Chemistry textbook next semester, please let us know if that will cause a financial hardship for you.

The MUSD technology office is working hard on upgrading our WiFi, work should be complete by this weekend.

Have a wonderful rest of your week and weekend!
