Principal's Weekly Message

Good afternoon Middle Creek High School families, 


I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and that December is off to a great start.

Below are some updates and reminders that I hope will be helpful in keeping you informed.  


Information & Reminders:

Early Release Monday, Dec. 5th

Monday, December 5th is an early release day.  Students will be dismissed 2 hours early so that teachers may participate in staff development.  Students will still attend all 4 classes on Friday, on a modified schedule.  Dismissal for the early release will be at 12:18.  Students will be provided a bag lunch as they leave for the day, so it may be helpful to send snacks for them throughout the day.  Breakfast will still be provided as normal. A period-by-period bell schedule can be referenced below:
