Weekly Spotlight On MPHS!

Mr. Forrest's Weekly Update: 5/25/18

MPHS Families:


The busiest and most exciting season of school continues with school activities, senior events, and end of year testing. Please remind your students, especially underclassmen, of the importance of finishing the year strong!


Underclassmen will take their SOLs starting June 4. Please see the SOL schedule and make sure your child is reviewing with their teachers, getting plenty of rest, eating a good breakfast, and arriving to school on time. Attendance is key; we have three weeks of school left! Please avoid any appointments that require your student to arrive late or leave early on testing days.


In addition, it is important for students to bring their devices to school and especially during testing. If there are any issues with a student device, please encourage your student to submit a Help Desk ticket so it can be fixed!


We are confident that all our students will do their very best on SOLs and demonstrate what they've learned this semester.

SOL tests will be administered per your student's schedule. The block your child has an SOL class will determine the day of testing.

All SOL tests will be administered in the morning from 7:25 until completed.


June 4 - 4th block classes take SOL Test

June 5 - 3rd block classes take SOL/W!SE Test

June 6 - 2nd block classes take SOL/W!SE Test
