It is the final week of the 2022-23 school year and there are a few updates to prepare parents and students for the end of the school year. This newsletter serves as the updates that you will need. Please review it carefully.
As this is the final week of the school year, we will be conducting final exams for the third trimester. The final exam schedule can be found here: https://www.mccschools.org/o/mcc-high-school/article/1139937
The last day of school is Friday, June 9th and it is a half-day of school with students being dismissed at 11:30am. Lunches will be available as students leave the building. Please remember that there is no eating on buses but students may transfer the lunches home with them.
Monday, June 5th is the last day of CTE classes. Students who are bus riders may be in school at MCC but must remain in the cafeteria or in the library with permission until they are to go to MCC classes for the rest of the day. If a CTE student drives to school they may arrive at the time that their MCC classes begin.
Grade reductions are being figured by office staff. Students are allowed to have five absences but on the sixth and beyond they get a ½ grade reduction for every absence past the 5th absence. Doctor notes, funerals, school-related absences, and pre-arranged absences do not count toward this total.
Students will take their school-issued Chromebooks home with them for the summer and are responsible for them and bringing them back ready to use for the next school year. Broken Chromebooks or missing chargers must be paid for by the student.

The grave restoration group recently visited two cemeteries and has now cleaned the headstones of veterans. This group has been together for over two years and has cleaned well over 1000 gravestones. The group is led by Mr. Richert.
It has been a pleasure to be with the students of MCC once again and we look forward to a new school year in the fall of 2023!
Stay safe over the summer, Spartans!
