Healthy Kids Survey
Mt. Shasta High School will be closed for school in honor of Presidents' Day on Monday, February 20th. School resumes on Tuesday with a Block 5-8 class schedule.
All 10th graders will take the PSAT on Wednesday, February 22nd. 10th graders will start the day in the gym at 8:00 and should be finished with the exam by 11:30 or 12:00.
On Friday, January 20th there was so much snow that we canceled school for the day. As a result, we will need to use our “snow day” on Monday, April 17th as a regular school day instead. The state requires schools to be open for a minimum of 180 days so that is how we will meet our minimum.

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!

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 and other subjects will be held on Tuesday for one hour in Mrs. Greenspan's room (room 9) through October 4th. Beginning October 10th, tutoring will move to Mondays and the Tuesday after-school tutoring will no longer be offered.
