MHS Starts Hybrid Schedule on January 25, 2021

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On Tuesday night, the District 120 Board of Education set a date for the beginning of hybrid learning.  Families who have chosen hybrid learning for their student will begin attending class in-person the week of January 25.  Therefore, MHS will transition to the hybrid schedule beginning on Monday, January 25.  Below, the January calendar shows the change from the remote schedule to the hybrid schedule.  Under the hybrid schedule, MHS will continue with Red/Gray days where hybrid students will attend in-person instruction and Yellow days where all students and staff are conducting class remotely.

All students and staff returning to the building are required to:

  • Wear a mask at all times

  • Maintain a 6 foot distance from others

  • Wash hands regularly during the day

  • Use blue card (students) to be allowed into the building

  • Stay home when not feeling well

Hybrid Schedule Student Group Assignments

For the families who chose the hybrid schedule, students are divided into two groups, Group 1 & Group 2.  Group 1 students will come to the building on Monday and Tuesday.  Group 2 students will come to the building on Thursday and Friday.

For the families who chose to continue with remote learning, students will continue to learn as they have been this year.  MHS teachers will be teaching concurrently the students attending in-person and remotely.

Current Freshman (Class of 2024) & New Student Orientation

Dear Parents/Guardians of the Class of 2024 and Transfer Students,

At the D120 Board of Education this week, a date of Monday, January 25 was set for the start of the hybrid schedule and in-person instruction.  Since our freshmen class and transfer students have never had the opportunity to be in the building this school year, MHS is offering a shortened Freshman and New Student Orientation on Friday, January 22.

All freshmen and new students are invited to attend this event regardless if they are scheduled to come to the building during the hybrid schedule or continue learning remotely for the semester.  

This event is scheduled for 1 hour and will include a welcome, presentation on supports and expectations and a building tour to locate student classrooms.  There are multiple 1 hours sessions during the day to choose.

Students who wish to attend this event must register.  Registration opens at noon on Saturday, January 16.  Click HERE to register!  Students will be asked to select a particular time and group.  Groups are filled on a “first come, first served” basis.

When arriving at the building, students will be temperature checked and answer the COVID19 health questions.  Students must wear a mask and maintain a 6 ft social distance the entire time they are in the building.

It is my hope this event will jumpstart friendships, create new interests and excitement and start the second semester off in a positive direction.  Please encourage your student to register for this event.
