As both educators and parents, we recognize and value the importance of timely information from the school. In an effort to better communicate school news and updates with parents we have signed up with Remind 101. This free service allows educators to send text "blast" to all subscribers. Simply follow the directions below and you will automatically receive any messages we send to the MCHS School community. This is a closed system. We will not have access to each other's cell phone numbers and you will not be able to text back. Our hope is to utilize this service to provide updates and reminders regarding important information and events for senior students. It is our sincere desire to assist you in keeping connected and up to date and with the guidance department.

Best regards,

MCHS Guidance Counselors
