Principal's Weekly Message

Good afternoon Middle Creek High School families, 

 

I hope that all our families have enjoyed a wonderful Winter break and an amazing start to 2022! I hope that these two weeks have given all of our students and families the time to rest, re-charge, and get ready to finish this first semester strong. We have one more instructional week to go, and then a week of exams to finish our first semester.  Below are some reminders and calendars items to prepare you for what is upcoming.  

 

Information & Reminders: 

Health and Safety Reminders:

As students prepare for school tomorrow, please help us by reminding them the importance of appropriate mask wearing and frequent hand washing or sanitizing throughout the school day. We appreciate everyone’s adherence to the safety and health guidance and your support in trying to keep all our students and staff healthy and on-campus! 

Also, please continue to monitor your student’s health and symptoms and PLEASE keep students home if they are not feeling well or exhibit any symptoms. 

Starting this week, should you have to report a positive case of covid-19 for your student, please email Ms. Megronigle at lmegronigle@wcpss.net, or call the main office number and you will be directed to the correct voicemail. 

 

Final Exam Information:

Final exams for first semester classes will be held on-campus the week of January 10th-14th.  Students will be taking either teacher-made exams or a state exam (CTE or EOC courses).  Reminder, that final exam participation is required unless you have are a 12th grader that has earned exemption status for a particular course.  Final exams will count for 20% of the final course grade. 

The schedule for final exams is provided below and will be reviewed with students in their homeroom this week. Each day students will have one exam, time for lunch, and then have scheduled time to review for an upcoming exam or complete other work. Bus transportation will run as normal. 

Most students will not report to campus on Friday, unless they have to make-up an exam missed earlier in the week.

If a student would like to be dismissed and picked up prior to the study hall, parents may approve that option.  Below is the permission form that must completed and signed in order for a student to be dismissed after their exam period (11:30).  Students will need to turn this permission form in to their teacher on the day of each exam. Students who are planning to take advantage of early dismissal must leave campus at the end of the exam period and may not come back to campus unless they have an athletic practice or extracurricular activity.
