SNOW DAY MAKE-UP INFORMATIONAs you are aware school cancellations require us to adjust instructional minutes to meet the number of instructional minutes that are required for the year by the Department of Public Instruction.We have come up with a solution to make up the time by modifying our schedule. Starting on April 25, 2019 MHS will reduce the lunch periods by five minutes and run on the schedule listed below (pending any additional snow days.)
We intend to move forward with the following changes (listed in reverse chronological order):
- Friday, June 7th will be a full-day with students and the last day of school for 2018-19
- Thursday, June 6th will be a full-day with students
- Both early dismissal days in April will be changed to full-days with students (April 5th & 19th)
- Lunch periods at the high school will be shortened by 5 minutes per day starting on February 25th
- We will add 10 minutes to the end of the school day starting April 15th for the remainder of the school year to make up the February 25th snow day.
Based on these adjustments, and if we have no additional closures, we will have met the required instructional minutes with Friday, June 7th serving as the last day of school for 2018-19.
