Announcements August 21, 2020

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We are thrilled to finally be back on campus and ready to welcome students next week. 

School starts Monday for EVERYONE!
If you are in Hybrid Cohort A or Fully In-Person, we will see you at school Monday morning. Please arrive early to find a parking spot and get to your class on time. Our staff will be in the hallways ready to assist you if you have any questions.

If you are in Hybrid Cohort B, you will have E-Learning assignments to complete on Monday. Please check your email and Google Classroom. Let us know if you are not able to login.

If you are a Fully Virtual student, be sure you have connected to Mrs. Goldin’s Google Classroom and signed up for your weekly check-in. If you missed Orientation last week, we have scheduled a makeup session for Tuesday, August 25 at 4:00pm. Please be there!

New Students: If you have not received your schedule, then we are waiting on records from your previous school. Please be on the lookout for an email containing instructions for the first day of school.

Testing Forms
Most of our students are eligible to take either the SAT or the ACT for free this year. Eligibility is based on how many years you have been in high school. Please choose the letter that applies to you, and return this to the school. If you came to Open House/Orientation, you may have already done this.

PowerSchool
Parents, communication with you will be more important this year than it ever has been. We strongly urge you to access your PowerSchool account and install the app on your phone so you receive instant updates regarding your child’s attendance and grades. Please contact us if you need your login information or have any questions.

Chromebooks & Internet Access
Students will pick up their chromebook from their Advisor each morning and return it to their Advisor at the end of the day. These devices should NOT be taken home. If you do not have a device to access E-Learning at home, please talk to Mrs. G about getting a second chromebook for home use.

Students who wish to bring their own devices to school may do so, and we will help them connect to the internet here.

If you do not have reliable internet access at home, please talk to Mrs. G about assistance with obtaining this access. We will have help available!

Parking
Midlands Tech students also start class next week, so our students will likely not be able to find a space in the lot right behind our building. There is plenty of parking in the Granby lot as well as parallel parking along Kentucky Avenue. All students must have a parking decal – see Mr. Whatley to get yours!

Pictures/Student IDs
If you did not have your picture taken at Open House/Orientation, please let us know during the first week of school. These photos will be used to create your MMC Student ID.

Dual Enrollment
Fall has barely started and we are already making plans for dual-enrollment courses in the Spring. If you are interested in taking college classes next semester, please talk to Mr. Whatley about taking the Accuplacer placement test in September. Be on the lookout for more details, including paperwork and enrollment deadlines, which will be coming soon!
