Student Bulletin Thursday, March 25 Day 1
CHANGE FOR PROM – Because of COVID contact tracing guidelines from Jones County Health, ALL JUNIORS AND SENIORS ATTENDING PROM MUST SIGN UP IN THE OFFICE. IF YOU ARE BRINGING A GUEST, YOU MUST SIGN UP YOUR GUEST IN THE OFFICE EVEN IF YOUR GUEST IS A MHS STUDENT. You can do this at the counter in the office. ALL GUESTS THAT DO NOT ATTEND MHS MUST COMPLETE THE DANCE GUEST REGISTRATION FORM. This includes MHS alumni, those students attending other high schools, and those that are out of school. This is an important change from previous years as we must have phone numbers to use if the need arises for contact tracing. Forms are due to the High School Office by 12:00 noon on Friday, April 16th. The registration forms are available at the drive up window.
Post Prom t-shirt order and sign up due date has been extended to tomorrow, this Friday, March 26. The t-shirt is your ticket in to post prom. $10 per attendee with a family donation of $25 if able. Thanks for your support for this fun night!
Juniors and Seniors — If you are 17 or older and haven’t registered to vote now is your chance! Stop into Mr. Gilkerson’s Room between now and March 30th and register to vote. All you need to bring with you is your Driver’s License or know the last 4 digits of your social security number. Mr. G. will turn in your registration form for you!
