Dear MHS Students and Families,
I want to thank you all for your patience and flexibility this opening week! We've launched remote learning for our Hybrid students, welcomed our Daily students back into the building, and oriented our Virtual Remote students to the Edgenuity platform.
Textbook and supply distribution will take place next week. Please see below for further instructions. Pick-up time slots will be sent to students and parents directly via email shortly.
In addition, please mark your calendars for virtual Curriculum Night this coming Thursday, September 24th starting at 6:15PM. We are currently finalizing the details, and will send more information early next week.
I want to thank the Mansfield High School staff for all of their efforts over the past few weeks to prepare for the start of school. We all agree that it has been wonderful to see and reconnect with our MHS Hornets once again!
We will be distributing textbooks, student planners, and other class-specific materials during the week of September 21st-24th. Please read the following instructions carefully, as they are in place to ensure the safety of both students and staff.
**Please note that for our Virtual Remote students, all textbooks/materials are not yet available- at a minimum, VRC students will receive their student planner and any required materials for their MHS teacher-taught class.**
*IMPORTANT* You will need a copy of your schedule in order to receive your materials.
Please bring a backpack or other large bag when you come to the school. You will be receiving materials for all or most of your classes at this time and it will be difficult to carry.
Either you or your parent/guardian must come to school to pick up your materials. Please be prompt in arriving during your designated time slot (will be sent in an email).
Grade 9- September 21st
Grade 10- September 22nd
Grade 11- September 23rd
Grade 12- September 24th
What will you be picking up?

Instructions for Pick Up

Stop at the first station. Pick up a student planner.
Each department will have a station set up with a stacks of books/materials. Stop at each station and tell them which classes you have for each department (i.e.- English 9H, World History CP, etc.).
The staff member will hand you the books/materials you need for that course.
Exit out of Door 25 and return to your car.
The system is designed so that everyone can keep a safe distance at all times.
