Career Center Workshops on Thursdays
Seniors: Fill out the FAFSA or Dream Act Application!
All seniors are encouraged to do this, regardless of family income status. All too often, students hesitate to apply for college because they think it is cost-prohibitive, and on the flip side, some students think their family makes "too much" to qualify for any financial aid. Frequently, this is not the case. MVHS encourages ALL seniors to fill out the FAFSA or DreamAct application to find out what financial aid for college exists for them.
Weekly COVID Cases on Campus
During the past week (since last Friday), MVHS had 0 new cases of COVID-19 among students/staff.
School community members can also follow up-to-the-minute data on our District's COVID-19 Dashboard.
