The MCHS staff is back on campus and making final preparations for the new school year. The custodial staff has been working extremely hard to make sure the building is ready for students. We are so fortunate to have dedicated custodians who take pride in how the building looks.

As we continue with the construction transition, it is important for all of us to remain patient, flexible, and understanding. If adjustments or improvements need to be made, we will do so in a timely manner. Hopefully, the construction on Highway 122 will be completed soon and the new entrance/exit opened. As everyone (parents and students) will be entering and leaving the campus off Illinois Street, please remind our student drivers to be cautious and safe. Parents may drop off MCHS
students either in front of the John Adams building using the front drive (please stay in the right hand lane) or in front of MCHS. We hope this will help reduce some of the traffic in front of MCHS.
First day for new students to the district and freshmen is Wednesday, August 29th. The day will start at 8:45 A.M. in the gym, and end at 3:30 P.M.
The first day of school for all students is Thursday, August 30th. School will start at 8:45 A.M. and end at 3:30 P.M.
Picture make-ups for any student who did not get his/her picture taken at registration are from 8:00 to 12:45 on Friday, August 31st. Students will need to do this before school, during study halls, or during lunch.
There is no school for students and staff on Monday, September 3rd in observance of Labor day.
Back-to-School Night is on Tuesday, September 4th from 6:30 to 8:30 P.M. Teachers will be in their classrooms. We will not run a formal program but will allow parents to walk their child’s schedule.
We are excited to start the new school with all the upgrades that have taken place.
