We are going to have school tomorrow at our regular starting time of 8:00am. (Unless, of course, the weather turns wicked with snow!) Tuesday, December 10th will be a Gold Day. Tonight we are still hosting the boy's basketball games that have been scheduled against Bellingham High School. The C and JV games start at 5:40 and the varsity game starts at 7:15. We are still hosting the scheduled chess tournament this evening at MHS.
We have had professional cleaners on site since Saturday evening. There has been great progress in the affected classrooms. We have seven classrooms affected. Those teachers have been moved to other locations around campus so they may continue to serve our students. We will post those locations around school. Our whole staff has been absolutely amazing today as they have pitched in to help make the temporary areas more than functional. We will have an all school assembly at 8:00am tomorrow morning to share details with our student body. We will be meeting in the North gym and then getting into our regular schedule shortly thereafter.
If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to call the MHS office. Our number is 398-8111.

Unfortunately, a pipe burst in the education building late this afternoon and several classrooms were affected. We are now assessing the water damage and cleaning the building. We are canceling school for MHS students on Monday, December 9th. However, those students who are enrolled in Academy classes will still meet at their regularly scheduled times because they meet in our CTE building. Again, there is no school for MHS students attending MHS classes on Monday, December 9th. I will have updated information on the principal's page of our website by 1:00pm Monday. If you have any questions we may be reached at the high school phone number beginning at 8:00am Monday morning, which is 398-8111.

Northwest Career & Technical Academy
We host two satellite programs with the Northwest Career & Technical Academy: Construction Careers Academy and Engineering Academy. These are outstanding opportunities to get real, practical training in these two fields. Junior and senior students from Whatcom and Skagit counties are eligible to attend every day from 7:00-9:30 and pick up 3 high school credits and numerous college credits - and it's FREE! These two programs meet on our campus.
We have open enrollment - it's not too late. Email me for information, firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, contact Lynette Brower, Dean of Students, at email@example.com, 360-848-0706, ext. 4005.
Meridian is a great place to be!
