Warrior News

A Weekly Newsletter for Warrior Families and Students

January 22, 2021

Greetings Warrior Families and Friends,

Congratulations on an outstanding first semester! We can’t say enough how proud we are of our Warrior students for how they have risen to every challenge of this unique year. Reflecting upon the academic, athletic, and all of the co-curricular experiences our students were able to engage in throughout this semester, how could you be anything but proud of our Warriors!


Now, as we look ahead to the second semester, take some time as a family to set some new goals. Think about a barrier or obstacle that was overcome during this stretch. How has it helped you to grow? How can you use this new found strength or skill to do even better in an area this next semester? Additionally, how might this goal impact your course selections for next year? How might your goal impact future career ideas and aspirations? Be sure to purposefully plan and set goals at each step of the journey because the four years of high school go by incredibly fast.


As always, please remember that we are here to help! If you have any questions, concerns, or would like some additional support, reach out to any administrator or school counselor.


Have an awesome day and GO WARRIORS!

Principal

Todd Irvine

When and How to Notify MNS About COVID-19

PLEASE NOTIFY MNS IF ANY STUDENT OR STAFF MEMBER EXPERIENCES THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS OR STATUS USING THIS FORM.

COVID-19 Symptom or Status Notification

Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests

Our schools continue to be open and our curricular co-curricular activities are operational under our local health department guidelines. However, it is important to draw our families' attention to an overriding principle. Although we love to see our whole community at each of our district's events; during this unprecedented time, we are asking our families to operate under a singular school community and singular family mindset when attending events. Essentially, keeping each school's events to just that school's clientele and only the families with active participants or performers in the event.

Update: Classic 8 Winter Home and Away Sport Contests

Beginning January 7, 2021, the Classic 8 has issued a revision to the Winter Sport Spectator Guidelines.

Home spectators remain at 4 immediate family members per participating athlete. NEW: Visiting spectators are limited to 2 immediate family members per visiting participating athlete.

Still in effect:

Admission to all Classic 8 contests are not open to the general public, students, and staff.

An appropriate mask/face covering, as directed by Gov. Evers, must be worn at all times.


For away contests, please consult our Activities website, 1Warrior.org, or the opponent's home website for streaming links.

We recognize that many of our students' support systems are their family members and it means a great deal to our students to have their closest advocates in attendance supporting their athletic, musical, and leadership endeavors. We are excited to see our students in their winter season performances, competitions, and school community-building events!
