Monday Make-Up

Maple Mountain High School News - Tue, 10/10/2017 - 8:47am

Dear Students and Parents,

This Monday, October 16 will be our first Monday Make-up Day. We will have one per term. We will shorten the school day and excuse students at 1:10 pm. Teachers will be in their rooms from 1:10-2:30pm helping students. Buses will still run as usual on Mondays at 1:45pm. Parents can visit with teachers on Monday also. We are anticipating that it will be pretty hectic in the classrooms for the first 60 minutes, but it will hopefully calm down the last 20 minutes or so if you want to drop by then you are welcome or you may email the teachers.

Monday is also Mega Detention. If your student has any NCs this term or from previous terms they will want to sign-up for detention. To sign-up students pay $5 in the finance office to be added to the detention list. Students will serve 3 hours in the detention lab (from 2pm-5pm) and receive 5 hours of credit.

Last, I want you to know how much I love working at MMHS and spending time with students—your children. Please follow me on Instagram @principal_nielsen. I post “what’s happening” at school. And please like us on FACEBOOK!  https://www.facebook.com/maplemountainhighschool/

Thanks for your support and GO EAGLES!!
