Good morning MCHS students and families. This morning, student learned about our plan for Knight Way time for the remainder of the semester. If you are not aware, this semester ends on January 22nd. Including today, there are only 13 days remaining in the semester. Teachers posted grades yesterday. You can now login to parent portal to view your students most up to date grades. https://kyede8.infinitecampus.org/campus/portal/marion.jsp If you, or your student, are NOT failing any courses, they will not need to Zoom during Knight Way for the remainder of the semester. They are still responsible for logging into their Knight Way google classroom and completing the posted assignment. They just won't need to Zoom. If you, or your student, IS failing one or more classes, they will need to Zoom with the teacher(s) of the course(s) they are failing, during Knight Way time, on a set schedule. Below is a link to the video we shared with students this morning to better explain the plan. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rCCkjZv4OoaoBon_z62CzSrhOeYczyLr/view If a student is failing one or more courses, Zooming with those teachers during Knight Way is a requirement. Teachers will be documenting the students who do not attend and we will handle those situation accordingly. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out to us at school and/or email the teachers of the courses your student is failing. Any staff member can be reached through email using firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, and let us know what we can do to support you as we wrap up the semester.
Attention Class of 2021: Cap and gown orders are due by February 15th. It’s very important that you order before the deadline due to COVID processing and shipping delays! The link to order is on the MCHS homepage!
MCHS Students and Families, Happy New Year 2021 !!! Welcome back.Tomorrow is our first back on Distance Learning. We will finish this week on distance learning. Friday, Jan. 8 will be an NTI day. Superintendent Schlosser will make a decision on returning to In-Person Learning by Jan 7 for the following week of Jan.11. Your schedule will be the same as it was before Christmas Break. Distance Learning Schedule Schedule Time Block 8:15-8:45 Knight Way 8:55-10:15 Block 1 10:20-11:40 Block 2 11:45-12:15 Lunch/Movement Break 12:20-1:40 Block 3 1:45-3:05 Block 4 We wanted to make everyone aware that we are currently still in the first semester. It will end on January 22nd. Typically, the first semester ends at Christmas break, but because of our late start this year, everything has been pushed back. This means that, after today, there are 13 school days remaining in the semester! WOW !! We realize that this semester has been difficult. We have all worked together to make virtual learning more manageable and meaningful. While we all want things to get back to “normal,” virtual learning is our current reality. The courses students are taking now, and the grades they are earning, are the grades that will post to their transcript after January 22nd. This means that if you are not satisfied with your current grades, you have 13 more school days to work with your teachers to improve them. Students, if you are failing a course, it is so important that you are communicating with your teachers to determine what work you are missing, and work with them to make it up. You have access to your teachers in so many ways (classroom, remind, etc.), but remember, you can always reach any teacher by emailing them at email@example.com. We also have opportunities for in-person, small-group tutoring and intervention. If this is something you are interested in, please use the link below to sign up with Mr. Hicks. https://calendly.com/mr-hicks-tutoring/in-person-tutoring-1 It is so important that students address their failing grades immediately. If a student ends the semester with a failing grade, their schedule may be re-worked and elective courses removed, in order to re-take failed courses. We don’t want this to happen, but we also have to ensure students earn the credits needed in order to graduate. Please take this seriously. Students will take final exams on the last days of the semester. Per SBDM policy, final exams are 20% of final grades. We will post the Finals schedule soon for the first semester. We want ALL students to be successful virtual learners. Please let us know how we can support you!
