MHS Weekly Update

November 11, 2022

Hurricane Nicole

We hope that all of our MHS Pirate Families safely weathered Hurricane Nicole. If your family has any needs after the storm, please do not hesitate to reach out to an administrator or guidance here at Matanzas HS and we will connect you with resources.


The school district will communicate at a later date any changes to the academic calendar or make-up days as a result of school being cancelled on Thursday, November 10th.

Thank you Flagler County!

Just a quick note to thank the voters of Flagler County for renewing the half-cent sales tax to support our schools. It is very gratifying to know that you support the future of education in Flagler County. We also appreciate everyone who helped us spread the word about why it was needed and how it will be spent.
