MONDAY MAKE-UP DAYS (Bell schedule listed below)
We will hold four Monday Make-up Days this school year: October 21, December 16, March 2, and
May 4. On these days students will be released at 1:10pm to go to their classes and visit with
teachers regarding missing assignments, grades, etc. Releasing students at this time should also
allow our bus students an opportunity to meet with teachers before catching their buses. Buses
will run on their regular Monday schedule. If parents would like to meet with teachers we
encourage they visit after 2:10pm, allowing students to be helped first. Teachers will be available
until 2:45pm. If you have questions regarding Monday Make-up Days, please contact the school at
ACT TEST FOR JUNIOR STUDENTS
On Tuesday, March 10th the ACT will be administered to all Junior students at MMHS. Sophomore and
Senior students will not need to attend on this day. For students who eat school breakfast and/or lunch,
breakfast only will be served. Buses will run for bus students and pick-up will be around 12:15-12:30pm.
Juniors will need to bring with them a no.2 pencil and an approved calculator if they wish to use one for
the math portion of the test. All of the problems on the math test can be solved without the use of a calculator.
This year’s test does not include the writing section.
Most students will be using chrome books for testing. The school has a limited number of computer
mice available so if you would like to have a mouse to use with the chrome book you may bring one with you.
Testing will begin promptly at 7:50 so please be on time. A list of room assignments will be posted by
the Counseling Office and Library. Testing will take approximately four hours and buses will arrive to pick up
students at 12:30.

The March Driver Education class will start on Monday, March 9th at 6:00 AM in room E-202. Class will be
held every school day from Monday, March 9th until Tuesday, March 31st from 6:00 – 7:30 AM in room E-
202. Usually, our first class is the parent meeting. However, in order to more easily accommodate the Zero
Fatalities presentation, the parent meeting will not be held until Thursday, April 2nd at 7:00 PM in the MMHS
auditorium. Students will still be required to attend the parent meeting as it is their last class and are
encouraged to bring at least one parent. The meeting will last until about 8:00 PM. For those enrolled in the
class, we will start each morning at 6:00 AM. Don’t be late. Bring your permit and something to write with on
Monday, the 9th. Enter through the doors to the right of the flag pole, (by the cafeteria), go down the “E”
hallway, and up the stairs to room E-202.
The Zero Fatalities group from Salt Lake City will be here for their monthly presentation to the driver
education students and parents. This presentation is required for students, but is open to the general
public. Anyone is welcome to attend. It is a great presentation that all adults and teens can benefit
from. It will be held on Thursday, April 2nd in the MMHS Auditorium. It begins at 7:00 PM and will end
about 8:00 PM.
DRILL TEAM TRY-OUTS
There will be a meeting for all girls interested in trying out for the 2020-21 Ellevés Drill Team on

NEBO SCHOOL DISTRICT 2020-2021 FEE SCHEDULE
The Nebo School District 2020-2021 school fee schedule will be reviewed in the February 12 and March 11
school board meetings in preparation for approval in the March 11 board meeting. If you would like to
provide input, you can attend one of the board meetings or send your comments via the following link. Just
copy and paste this link in your browser.
Parents: If you leave a message to excuse your student on our attendance voicemail
system, be sure to check your student’s SIS account 24 hours after your call to ensure the
absence has been excused. (It takes 24 hours for SIS to reflect absences that have been
excused.) Sometimes voicemail messages are unclear or not audible, resulting in the
student’s absence not being excused. That is why it is so important for parents and
students to be proactive in checking SIS to confirm absences have been taken care of.
Please contact our attendance office if you have questions or concerns regarding this
process. Thank you!
SHETECH EXPLORER DAY

CAREER DAY -- CALLING PRESENTERS!
We are excited to announce that we will be having our school-wide Career Day on Wednesday, April 1, 2020.
We will be on assembly schedule that day and our Career Day will go from approximately 9:00-10:00 a.m. The
presentations will be in the classrooms and will last 25 minutes. Students will have the opportunity to choose
two speakers from the list provided to them that day. We will have a wide variety of careers and hope that your
student will take advantage of this opportunity to listen to these professionals. Our presenters are volunteering
their time and we appreciate their efforts.
Speaking of presenters, we are in need of more speakers! If you would be willing to speak to our students
about your career during our Career Day, we would love to invite parents to participate. In keeping with the
Utah State Board of Education's "Step Up to Higher Education" program, we are looking for careers that
require “1, 2, 4 or more” years of training, certification or formal education after high school. For more
information, please contact Robyn Dunn at [email protected]
We will also have a mini-career fair during lunch with approximately 20 vendors available for students to visit
with. Vendors will include cosmetology schools, military recruiters, MATC, ALC, and local companies who will
be hiring students for summer work. If your company would like to set up a booth to recruit for summer
employment, please let Mrs. Dunn know. There is no booth rental fee.
MORP 2020 will be Friday, March 27th from 7:30-10:30pm here at MMHS. This dance is girls’ choice. The
