News You Can Use
Next week is our district-wide Performance Task. Last year was the first year that we gave the Performance Task as a local assessment of how our students are doing with literacy. This year we will give the Day 1 Activity in social studies classes on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Performance Task is on Thursday. It takes about two and a half hours to do the entire Performance Task, however it is not timed so you can have more time to finish if you need it.
Things you need to know:
1) Bring a fully charged laptop
2) Earn a score of 3 or 4 on the performance task this year
3) Do better than you did last year on the performance task

Mount Shasta High School Peer Tutoring Program
Mount Shasta High School now has a peer tutoring program in place for all subject areas. If you would like your student to work with a tutor, we will match the student with a tutor who has the skills and schedule that will work for your family. Please indicate the subject areas for which you are seeking tutoring. In order to sign up, contact me by email or phone at: Randi Greenspan firstname.lastname@example.org School phone: (530) 926-2614.
This program will run for the full school year. In addition, after-school tutoring for math will be held on Mondays for one hour in Mrs. Greenspan's room (room 9). The Tuesday after-school tutoring will no longer be offered

"Mt. Shasta High School Emergency Notification Page"
This page is to inform parents and students of late starts, early releases or school closures due to weather or other emergencies.
Winter Weather School Closure and Late Start Information
As we head into the winter months we'd like to remind you about our processes for school closures or late school starts. We do our best to contact parents when we know a school start is delayed due to weather as well as when we must close school early due to weather or power outages.
Our first choice is to use our updated Parent Connect autodialer. It allows us to make automated calls and automated emails to your primary phone listed in the school database and the email that is on record. We also post information on the high school web page, send a message via our Mt. Shasta High School Emergency Notification Facebook page, and notify local radio stations. Sometimes we are limited due to our own technology and power issues so we get information out as many ways as possible.
If for some reason we need to close school once school has already begun, we will make every attempt to let the public know in advance. School closures are coordinated through the district office and transportation staff; if it starts to look dangerous for bus transportation or if electricity is off for an extended period of time we officially close school.
We all know that the roads can be icy, snowy, and often dangerous during our winter season. Please take your time and get your children to school safely, you are important to all of us!
