The administration continues to hear complaints about parents choosing to avoid the designated drop off lanes and dropping their children off in the parking lot or on Woodford Road, where it's unsafe.  This is a reminder to please follow the drop off and pick up procedures that are in place at MRHS.  These procedures are in place to ensure the safety of our students, parents, and staff members.  We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in keeping students, parents and staff safe.

 

 

 

Crisis Text Line 741-741

As parents, we want to be there for our children. Sometimes we can’t or they just don’t want us to be. Sometimes it's our friends. Sometimes it's us. Share this resource. Have your child add it to their contacts. You’ll know there is a place they can turn to for help.

Crisis Text Line serves anyone, in any type of crisis- bullying, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and more- providing access to free, 24/7 support and information via the medium they already use and trust: text. A live, trained Crisis Counselor receives the text and responds quickly to help you move from a hot moment to a cool moment and to stay safe and healthy.
