Pass/Fail Option Agreement Forms Available

Any Junior or Senior may take up to a total of one elective class per semester OR one elective double period class for one semester as PASS/FAIL per year with stipulations that are designated on the pass/fail option agreement form.

  1. Courses designated as required for graduation, or courses designated by any department are not available for the PASS/FAIL option may not be taken as such.
  2. Any student taking a course PASS/FAIL must have first completed the graduation requirements for courses in that department or be concurrently enrolled in a required class.
  3. Credit only will be awarded for a pass in this course.  There will be no grade calculated in the student’s grade point average (GPA) for this course.  If a student takes a class Pass/Fail, and earns a D- or better, a “P”(PASS) goes on the transcript.  The “P” does not affect the student’s GPA in any way. If a student takes a class Pass/Fail and earns an F, a “NC”(no credit) goes on the transcript.  This NC does not affect the student’s GPA in any way.
  4. The student is required to complete all papers/projects/tests/quizzes for this course.

Any student wishing to take a course PASS/FAIL must turn in the form to the Guidance Office.  This form must be turned in to the Guidance Office no later than Wednesday, January 8th before 3:30 pm.

This must be done with the formal agreement signed by student, parent and a guidance counselor. The grade will not be changed to Pass/Fail until after the end of the grading period. This will enable the parents to see the actual grade earned. Forms are available by clicking on the link and are located in the Guidance Office.  2019-2020 Pass/Fail Option Agreement Form

Student Safety – Madison Street One Way Traffic

Student safety is our top priority at MTHS.  Keeping that in mind, a change we are going to make for the ’19-20 school year is making Madison Street one way for traffic at the front entrance (south) of the building between 7:45am and 8:15am.  This will mean that all traffic will be going from east to west so all students will be exiting on the sidewalk side of Madison Street. This will prevent cross traffic between students being dropped off and bus traffic.  Primary drop off for students is still in the west parking lot.  There will be a sign and temporary barricades on the corner of Hanover and Madison Street.  As a reminder, when a bus stop arm is out and lights are flashing, you are not able to pass the bus even if there is room on the road and the students are entering or exiting the bus on the opposite side of the road.  Thanks for keeping student safety in mind as we get ready to start a new school year.
