Principal’s Message:


It's been a wonderful year here at MHS! We would like to congratulate all seniors and wish them the best in all their future endeavours. This broadcast is to inform you of upcoming important dates and information on Chromebooks during the summer. I hope everyone has a relaxing, fun, and safe summer and we look forward to seeing you in September!


Summer Information on Chromebooks


MHS administration and staff believe that students should have the opportunity to continuing learning and sharpening their skills over the summer months. Therefore, all current 9th-11th grade students will hold onto their Chromebook provided by the Middlesex School District during the summer months.


Students will continue to be responsible for their Chromebooks and are required to ensure that they are working properly. Should any student need technical assistance during the summer months, they may bring the Chromebook in on Tuesday mornings from 9:00-11:30 AM from July 9th through August 6th. Please enter through the High School's Main Visitor Entrance.


Prior to September 1, 2019, you must review the 1:1 Initiative Handbook, and submit payment for the 2019-2020 school year protection plan. Payments can be made via MySchoolBucks after July 9th and prior to September 1st or by check on Tuesday mornings from 9:00-11:30 AM from July 9th through August 6th. No cash will be accepted. Protection plan cost is $20.00 or $10.00 for thise who receive Free/Reduced Lunch.


Thank you for your support of our students and program. We are looking forward to the new school year and providing our students with the tools to become creative, problem-solving leaders.
