MHMS March 1st Reminders

Fri, 02/26/2021 - 8:07pm

Dear MHMS Families,

As you may know, HCPSS will begin its transition to a hybrid model on Monday, March 1. We are excited to begin welcoming back students in person and look forward to seeing other students virtually. Please know that we will continue to work toward the best interests of every student, no matter whether they are participating in person or virtually.

Families are reminded that all student schedules will change on Monday, for both students returning in-person and those remaining virtual. All school start times will be adjusted to begin 20 minutes later than pre-COVID start times. Students will not change courses/subjects, however class times and lengths will change.  You can find the MHMS updated schedule on our website

All families should note that effective March 1, there will be new procedures for student meals. Meals for seven days per week will continue to be provided at no cost to students; however, the days and times meals will be provided will change. Students returning in person may choose to receive meals any day they are in school. For all other families, meals will be available for pickup from 7:45-8:45 a.m. at elementary school locations and 9-10 a.m. at middle and high school locations on the following (Please note that the MHMS meal site will discontinue starting on March 1st.  Gorman Crossing will service our entire campus from 7:45-8:45.  Please feel free to go there or to an HCPSS school location that is convenient for you).:

  • Mondays – Students in Group V and/or non-HCPSS students age 18 and under
  • Wednesdays – Students in Groups E, A or B
  • Thursdays – Students in Group V and/or non-HCPSS students age 18 and under

  • Families of students in Group E (5 days) should have received an email on Wednesday with information regarding returing to the building for in-person instruction on Monday, March 1st.  If you, believe you should have received this email, and did not, please contact the school at 410-880-5897.
