IDPH and IHSA are now allowing spectator capacity to increase to 20% venue capacity for outdoor sports only. Please continue to be patient as MHS determines what this will look like for our sports.
MJHS Picture Day will be Friday, March 12th. All students should have received an order form in the mail from Persona. If you did not, please call the office and we will give one to your student. Only those students wishing to have their pictures taken will do so. Remote students that wish to have their pictures taken can do so between 7:15 AM and 7:45 AM.

As our winter seasons are winding down and football and volleyball are beginning there have been questions about adjusting the limits on fans at contests. Here was the latest update from IHSA: "Many questions have come to our office regarding the spectator limit. We have received communication from our IDPH contact that IDPH is in review of recommendations for changes to the spectator limit. There are no changes at this time, though when we have any approved modifications, we will communicate that out to all of you." Currently the limit of 50 people in attendance applies to both indoor and outdoor events. If any limit changes occur we will let everyone know.
Please see the attached flyer if you are interested in donating blood March 8 & 9.
