Dear MHMS Families,
I want to thank all of you for your patience and flexibility as we continue to adjust to our Continuity of Learning plan. I realize that there is a lot of communication, from many different sources being sent to you on nearly a daily basis, and I understand that at times it may be overwhelming. I want to remind you that the MHMS staff is here to help and support your student and your family in any way that we can. Please do not hesitate to reach out to administration, school counselors, case managers, and teachers, if you need help in navigating this shift to Continuity of Learning.
With that in mind, please take a moment to carefully read this week’s newsletter, as the intention is to help our families gain a better understanding of some of the components of the Continuity of Learning plan, and offer ways to engage in order to be successful for the remainder of the fourth quarter.
Quarter 4 Grading:
Read Write is a Chrome add-on. If your child is logged into Chrome, you should see the symbol in the upper right-hand corner. It is very small and looks like a purple puzzle piece. If the tools are not appearing and you have the purple puzzle piece, click on the puzzle piece.If you have a school-issued computer, Read Write should already be accessible. If not, you will probably have to download it. Here are the directions. Make sure you are in the browser Chrome.Click on this site to download the application, and the directions should be self-explanatory https://www.texthelp.com/en-us/products/read-write/read-write-for-education/ If Read Write still is not appearing, make sure that Chrome sync is turned on if you are on a home computer. That is found in the preferences of Chrome. You can search for sync and make sure that it is turned on. Once that is turned on then the extensions should come over.
The MHMS staff is here to help and support our school community, please do not hesitate to reach out to administration, school counselors, teachers and support staff if you are in need of any assistance.
