Dear Parents/Guardians: 8/17/2022
I hope this letter finds you rested, refreshed and ready for our plan to return to Manasquan High School. I am looking forward to working closely with our students, their families, and the school community as we get ready for the 2022-2023 school year. We, as the faculty of Manasquan High School, are committed to making this year an outstanding academic and social experience. The student schedules are now available through Parent Portal. Schedules contain the periods, course title, teacher, and room number for each course. The high school will return to our daily Drop & Rotate schedule, inclusive of the very popular Unit Lunch. Grade 12 students will be allowed to leave campus for lunch, provided they adhere to strict exit and return protocols and must complete a school form through administration. If a student has questions or concerns regarding a course schedule, please complete a request form for an appointment with their counselor. All students will report directly to their Period 1 on the first day of school Wednesday September 7, 2022. We will follow an “E” ½-day schedule, so students may meet their teachers and classmates for each of their courses on the first day of school. Teachers will participate in a professional ½ day session in the afternoon. Student schedules will be available in the portal Friday, August 19th at 3PM.
State law requires completion of the registration and emergency procedure information. Please update your emergency information through Parent Portal. Also, please be advised that all students must be up-to-date with their vaccines. Students who do not have appropriate documentation will not be permitted on school grounds until vaccination updates are submitted to the nurse. Every student will be issued a Manasquan High School student ID. The staff and student ID badge must be worn at all times during the school day. Identification badges for staff and students are highly recommended by law enforcement as a critical safety measure for our school.
All students will have access to a Student Handbook and a School Calendar on the school website. It is imperative that students and parents review all items carefully. Every student is responsible for knowing the contents of the handbook. These documents are also an excellent resource for parents to find information on the attendance policy, counseling services, and important dates of major school events. All students should read the policies on attendance, code of conduct and the co-curricular policy on student participation in activities. Parents should review the student handbook with their child to review school rules and policies. Any student that surpasses the threshold for attendance will lose credit for that course. In addition, a determination has been made that cell phone use during school hours has adversely affected the learning environment at our school.
Administrators and teachers will be strictly enforcing the code of conduct related to electronic devices used in the classroom, as outlined in the student handbook. The administrative team and teaching staff reserve the right to confiscate cell phones, headphones or other non-school issued technology and require parents to meet with building administration.
Any student who is dropped off at MHS in the morning, may not enter the building before 7:00 A.M., unless previously arranged with the building administration. Parents may drop their students at the front entrance to the building (Broad Street) allowing students to enter at the main entrance. The drop off area is very congested in the morning. Parents should allow enough time, so students can be in their classes at the 7:34 AM bell. Early arriving students will report to MHS Cafeteria or Media Center. Manasquan HS will end their day at 2:24 PM for SY 2022-23. Please find attached the SY 2022-23 Bell Schedules.
Parents and students should review the newly updated Student Handbook for SY 2022-23. Significant changes have been made to ensure student and staff safety. Please review the updated code of conduct, especially how it relates to school discipline and attendance in participating in athletics and co-curricular activities. Students must wear their school issued ID. Back packs are not permitted to be used in between arrival and dismissal from school. Students may use their school issued lockers before school, during passing time between classes and school dismissal.
Please be advised that the federal program that provided free lunch for all students has expired. Students who are eligible for free lunch benefits must fill out the application available in the “Forms,” tab of the student and parent portals. The form is available now and should be filled out at your earliest convenience to ensure benefits are available at the start of the school year.
Our school community continues to engage in the updated school re-opening plan. Administration and staff worked diligently over the summer to organize a successful opening on September 7, 2022. Our shared vision, at Manasquan High School, is that our students will receive the finest preeminent education possible. As we strive to achieve this vision, we should remember that the successful education of our young people depends on an organized effort with parents, teachers, and community members. I invite you to be an active part of the MHS Learning Community. I look forward to working closely with you and wish you all the best for the coming school year.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact me at (732) 528-8820, extension # 1000 or email@example.com.
