The MJHS Announcement Email is delivered every Monday, or the first school day of every week. This email is delivered as a courtesy to our parents and may not always be all-inclusive of announcements and schedules. Because I cannot know everything that is going on in every department at all schools, I depend on others to provide me with much of the information that needs to be posted. The deadline for submitting an announcement is the Friday prior to the Monday newsletter, and only information that is related to school or educational events will be included. Unfortunately, announcements that do not make this deadline will no longer be delivered. If you feel there is something that should be included that has not been, please contact the sponsor or coach of that event and ask them to send me the invitation so that it may be included. Requests for announcements may not be submitted by parents, but only by school personnel. Questions regarding announcements should be directed to the contact person given or to the appropriate department.
All registration forms should have been completed at the end of last school year. If you have any address or telephone changes, please notify the front office in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org throughout the year.
Tardies & Check-Ins
If a student arrives late to school, a parent or guardian must come in and sign the student in.
Anybody checking out a student must be on the student’s pre-approved checkout list (provided on the registration forms completed at the end of last year). The only way to change this list is for a parent/guardian to submit a request in writing. We cannot accept verbal permission for this. Any person checking out a student must have a photo I.D.—even if we know you.
