Freshmen Orientation & Schedule Pick Up

Orientation & Schedule Pick Up
Posted on 07/27/2017

Welcome Back Menomonie High School students and parents!  I'm excited to start the 2017-2018 school year by making sure we provide schedules, take ID pictures, and start the transition to the school year for all students, especially our freshmen, new students, transfers, and international students.  MHS Orientation and Schedule Pick-Up will be detailed below for August 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

I strongly encourage students and families to follow the assigned pick-up schedule to pay fees, resolve any schedule questions with counselors, to have their school picture taken, and to electronically sign the required permission form including field trip permission, handbook verification agreement, Chromebook consent form, etc.  This required permission form can only be done through Family Access.  Online forms will be available starting Tuesday, August 1st.  We will have computers available for those that haven’t completed the online forms process.   Incoming 9th graders have already signed up for an orientation day either August 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.  If an incoming 9th grade family misplaced the information or never received it, please contact Linda
Jolicoeur in the High School Guidance Office at 715-232-2992 or email her at linda_jolicoeur@msd.k12.wi.us and she will provide you with a date and time that works with your schedule.


The School District of the Menomonie Area will be providing Chromebook computers for all high school students to be used at school and home during the 2017-2018 school year as part of a 1:1 computer program called the 1:1 M-Powered Learning Initiative.  New Chromebook computers will be distributed to students for use at home and at school on 
Thursday, August 17th for 11th and 12th graders and Monday, August 21st for 9th and 10th graders.  Chromebook parent-student user agreements and optional insurance will be available to sign online through Family Access and payment during the August 1-3 Freshmen Orientation and Schedule Pickup.  For more information, see the Chromebook Parent Letter for more information and pick up dates.

Schedules and Fee Payments:  All fees must be paid before picking up schedules.  Fees can be paid online through Family Access or during the following dates:

Orientation and Schedule Pick-Up will be at the Menomonie High School.  Any request for schedule changes must be completed before the start of school.  Guidance counselors will assist with any schedule changes during the schedule pick-up times.  More information is available in the August Newsletter.  Students will also have their pictures taken during these times.  Seniors will need to have their picture taken for student IDs and it will not be in the yearbook.  Pictures can be ordered online prior to picture day at http://my.lifetouch.com/mylifetouch/pictureDayId/MI427108Y0
