Dear Parents, Guardians, & Students of MHS,

I want to emphasize that our staff stands committed to provide support, instruction, and ongoing communication so that students continue to receive and outstanding educational experience.

The administrative team has been busy hiring new faculty/staff, enrolling new students, reorganizing facilities, and making final Covid preparations to ensure a smooth and safe first day of school.

As we begin the new school year, we want to be transparent with all of our stakeholders concerning the implementation of our Covid safety measures. Please remember that the safety and security of all of students and staff will remain our top priority. We will start the year highly recommending that masks will be worn throughout the school building.

As like last school year, sanitizing stations will be in place around our campus and plastic dividers will be placed on all the cafeteria tables to minimize the potential spread of germs. PPE supplies will also be available in all classrooms for cleaning between class periods.Please be mindful that any changes to safety protocols will be made in alignment with the recommendations from the CDC and our local and state health departments.

As we start the year, please stress the importance of regular daily attendance; wearing ID’s, appropriate student dress, taking an active role in their learning and appropriate school behavior. These are essential components for student success. Parental input and collaboration is also something we strongly value and encourage in our school community. It takes a team approach to provide a safe and structured learning environment for all of our

Enjoy the remainder of you summer, and we are looking forward to a successful start to the 2021-2022 school year!

Most Sincerely,

Mike Krutz
