Attendance Updates (repeat)

If you will be leaving class early for an appointment, please make sure that your parent/guardian calls the early release line so we are able to get you a pass to release you from class.

If you are present in a class but get marked absent, please go to Student Relations to get an attendance correction form and have your teacher fill it out. If you have questions, please contact Mrs. Smith, Mr. Davey or Mr. Pratt in the student relations office.

Reminder about School Start Times (repeat)

Reminder: first-hour class begins at 7:45 am on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. First hour begins at 8:25 am on Wednesdays as we have advisory to begin the day.

With all students back in school this year we have found with the increased amount of traffic entering both our student lot and west parking lot, drop off times for students and students that drive is taking longer, please plan accordingly so all students have the opportunity to be present and ready for class at the beginning of first period.

Can I Live Stream Classes When I am Absent? NO!!! (repeat)

If you are absent, gets put into isolation or quarantine, please check Schoology for the most updated assignment/class materials from your classes. MRHS classes are not being live streamed this year so students will need to reach out to their teachers in the event of an absence.

Academic Support (repeat)

  • It is every Wednesday from 7:45 am to 8:20 am. All staff will be available at this time to provide additional support to students. This is a great opportunity for students to ask clarifying questions on assignments, prepare for an upcoming assessment or get caught up on material they missed due to an absence.

  • All staff are assigned to a location for academic support. Click here for staff locations.
