Dear Parents, Students, and Family Members,
We have had a great start to the school year and would like to recognize the hard work and effort of our students, teachers, and support staff. We have established high expectations for our students both in the classroom and throughout the school, and they have responded in a positive manner. We will continue to emphasize the importance of meeting those expectations because they are directly related to academic achievement and student growth.
The first academic checkpoint of the year has passed. Parents should check grades, attendance and all discipline on Skyward. Skyward allows parents to receive up-to-date real-time grades and attendance reports. Parents may opt into receiving grade and attendance alerts as well through Skyward. If you have any concerns, please contact your child’s teacher or counselor so that questions and issues can be addressed.
PARENT PICK-UP/DROP OFF
If you would like to pick up your student after school, please enter the West parking lot off Broadway and pick students up from Door Q. Students may be dropped off in the morning at Door A (Main Building) or Door L (Freshman Center). Please do not drop students off in the street in front of or alongside of the buildings. Students wanting breakfast may report to either the main or freshman cafeteria. Students then need to move directly to their first period class by 7:45.
Parent communication is important to us at MHS. In order to keep you informed, we have updated our website and also utilize Facebook (@merrillvillepirates) and Twitter (MerrillvilleMHS) to keep parents in touch with what is happening at the school.
If you have any concerns, please contact your child’s teacher, counselor, or grade level administrator so that questions and issues can be addressed. It is essential that we support each other as we strive to increase student achievement at all levels.
