When will seniors be able to return things to MASH and pick up personal items?
As we get into the month of May we will develop and publicize a plan that is consistent with the parameters in place by the PA Department of Health and PA Department of Education. The plan will include opportunities to return school materials (textbooks, uniforms, etc.) as well as to secure things from your locker, gym locker, and other locations.
Will we be having a Commencement Ceremony?
When will we receive our Caps and Gowns?
Typically we hand these out a few days prior to the Commencement Ceremony. We anticipate it will likely be the week after Memorial Day, but we cannot say for sure. We will develop a pick up procedure that is in accordance with PDE and the PA Dept of Health guidelines at that time.
Will there be Senior Awards?
Will senior recognition occur for student musicians as happens at our spring concerts?
Yes. The music department is working through some different ideas and will be reaching out to senior music students in early May to collect necessary information. The format of distribution of these senior recognitions will be publicized via this weekly communication, the district website, and high school social media.
Will senior recognition occur for spring student-athletes?
How will graduation status be determined for seniors for June of 2020?
Will my 3rd Marking Period be my final report grade?
What if I have just a semester 2 course?
What is the purpose of my work in the 4th Marking Period?
The number one reason we are “continuing with education” is for the continued development of your understandings and skills. Hopefully learning is never just about a grade. That being said, we do recognize that a return for an investment of time and energy is practical. Your teachers will be able to review your final grade in late May and make additional judgments in your favor via the final course grade based upon your participation in the 4th grading period.
When does the school year end for seniors?
What if I am not able to access teacher materials via technology or have another hardship at this time?
