WHEN WILL MY 2020-2021 SCHEDULE BE AVAILABLE AND WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS?
The ClassLink portal or Launchpad is going to be a one-stop shop for many of the applications and resources students will need to be successful at MHS. This page will automatically appear when students log in to their chromebook, but students can also click the link below to go there directly from any computer. Once on the login page, your student will simply use their district Username (Student ID Number) and Password (first initial of first name + first initial of last name + 6-digit birthdate + hashtag)
Final 2020-2021 schedules will be available on Infinite Campus to all students the morning of August 10th. The counselors will only be making schedule changes for the following reasons:
1. Student has not met the pre-requisite to take the course.
2. Student needs another ACADEMIC (english, math, science, and/or social studies) course to graduate, which is not currently in their schedule.
3. Student has already passed the course currently in their schedule.
**Schedules will not be changed because students do not like an elective, teacher, class, lunch period, or want to come out of Academy classes. The deadline has passed to request any Academy changes and/or any changes to the MHS schedule.
Any student/parent who has concerns about his/her schedule can submit a schedule change request to his/her counselor for review. The link to the electronic schedule change form is https://schoolwires.henry.k12.ga.us/Page/65436. The schedule change request link will become live on Monday, August 10; and it will be posted on the MHS main website. The deadline to make any schedule change requests is Monday, August 17. Please keep the reasons above in mind BEFORE you make a schedule change request. If a student/parent has a question about the schedule, he/she may e-mail the assigned counselor.
