This app maintained by the district also has scheduling information for athletics and fine arts events.

the q

Where can parents drop off their students in the morning?

the a

Parents can drop off and pick up their student's on the north side of the building. The south side of the building is reserved for staff parking and bus traffic only.

the q

Can a student's class schedule be changed?

the q

The master schedule of classes at MNHS is based on specific course requests by students and parents made during the spring semester. It is important that students discuss course choices with their parents, teachers, and counselor because teachers are hired and assigned so that students have the opportunity to take the courses they request. Every attempt will be made to schedule students into the courses they choose. † Once the school year begins, schedule changes will not be made unless an error was made in the selection of courses that will affect the student's graduation plan.

The following criteria will result in schedule changes:

  • The student is a senior and is not scheduled in a course required for graduation
  • The student is misplaced in a course (no prerequisites, previously earned credit, etc.)
  • Student schedules may need to be changed in order to balance class sizes or to accommodate teacher workloads

† Please refer to the AP/PreAP contract for details about the AP-PreAP Exit Process.

How do I check out my child if they need to leave school during school hours?

Once proper identification has been presented the campus receptionist will notify the appropriate House office and the student will be sent to the main entrance to leave with their guardian.

the q

How does the "House" concept work?

The House concept is based on providing students with one administrative office to provide administrative support, guidance counseling, and other basic school business.

the q

How do I know which House to contact?

House offices are based on the first letter of the student's last name. Ex. John Doe would be in Alpha House because Alpha House serves students with last names beginning with letters A-E.

the q

How do I report my student's absence?

the a

Guardians are encouraged contact their student's House office to notify them of the absence. When students return to school there must be a note turned in to their House office within three days of their return.

It is critical that notes be turned in to a student's House office in a timely manner to ensure that the absences are not considered unexcused. Notes from parents (containing dates, times, reasons for absences, and parent's daytime phone numbers) or medical notes (containing the office phone number and the date and time of treatment) are due the day a student returns to school, but may be accepted up to three days after an absence.

Without a valid note within three days, an absence will remain unexcused. If a student leaves early for any reason, they must still bring a note to get the absence excused; even if the parent checked them out in the front office or the nurse sent them home. More details about attendance regulations can be found here.
