No School ~ November 25th thru the 27th

There will be no school for the Thanksgiving break.

Important Information


All students should be aware that MVHS and TSD are actively monitoring the use of district-issued technology, software, and programs. Students may face disciplinary consequences as a result of their inappropriate use of technology hardware and software. This includes use both on school grounds as well as use off of school grounds.


For appropriate health and safety protocols and for contact tracing, students must choose a location for lunch and once selected, they are expected to stay at that location throughout lunch. For example, if a student is staying in the cafeteria, they must select a seat and remain there until the end of lunch. If a student elects to eat outdoors or off-campus, they will not be allowed back into the building until lunchtime is complete. All students must complete either a QR code tracking for outside/off-site lunch OR have contact tracing completed by a staff member in the cafeteria/cafeteria hallway. NO students may be permitted to eat in the classroom or FTLA areas of the building at this time.


Due to having three different attendance scenarios each week for each student, this brings challenges in understanding how attendance is taken and recorded. This information is meant to clarify how attendance is being taken, and as always teachers mark this attendance each day; therefore, all questions about attendance marking and what work students need to complete to be considered "present" should be directed to the classroom teacher first.

For In-Person A or B days

If a student is NOT in class, they are marked absent. If a student is absent due to quarantine as deemed appropriate by school officials, the classroom teacher may mark them present/remote if they attend class remotely or complete classwork.

For Asynchronous A or B days

Students are required to complete the "must-do" work in order to be marked present; failure to complete "must-do" work, as assigned by the teacher, will result in the student being marked 'absent - unexcused' for that class period. Teachers have one week to change this attendance marking as they complete grading tasks. It is not intended that a student has one week to do this work; instead, the "must-do" work is due ON the asynchronous day.

For Synchronous Wednesdays

Students are required to log onto the class for full 30-45 minutes as required by the teacher, and they must participate fully in the class discussion or activities. If an absence is necessary on Wednesday, the student will be marked 'absent' and will then work directly with their teacher to complete any missing work from this class period to be marked "present remote" within one week of the absence.

Please be sure to direct all questions about this to the individual teacher prior to contacting the attendance office or your assistant principal.
