Hello Islander Parents:
Getting started before Labor Day seems like a long time ago. Our students are beginning to settle into their classes and the new routines of being back in school.
Islander Parents: MIHS teachers are using Schoology as a digital classroom organization and communication system. To stay informed about what’s happening in your student’s classes, login to your parent account by following the instructions found at mercerislandschools.org/lms. Information will also be available during the Marketplace event (5:15-7:00pm in the MIHS Commons) prior to Curriculum Night on September 28th.
On late-start Wednesday at MIHS, classes begin at 8:45 a.m. Transportation will be provided on district yellow buses only on the same Metro routes as usual. Please be at your bus stop at 8:15 a.m., approximately 45 minutes later than usual. Late Start Wednesday bus schedules are available HERE. Most buses will arrive between 8:15 and 8:35 a.m. For more information contact the Transportation department at 206-236-3335.
