Please find information about the MVTHS reopening plan for this fall. The plan in its current form is a framework that will provide an overview of the school year. In the coming weeks, we will build upon this plan to provide more details on the daily procedures and operations. As always, we thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we prepare for the upcoming year.
After reviewing your schedule in Skyward, if you wish to request a correction, please use the link to complete the request. Please be sure to complete the online registration first. Please know that we will do our best to accommodate every request. We will make changes if you are in a course you’ve already earned credit for or if you are scheduled for the same course twice on your schedule. We will do our best to make elective change requests, but please understand that changes are dictated by availability and seat capacity.
Schedule Correction Policy in Handbook:
Students will have the first 3 days of each semester to make a schedule correction. Students will have 5 additional school days to change a class to a Study Hall. Changes in course requests will not be made for the following reasons: to change teachers, to change lunch or study halls, to be with friends, etc. No schedule corrections will be made after the deadlines, other than those that are administrative in nature. An automatic failing grade will be issued if a course is dropped after day 9 of the semester.

MVTHS is pleased to announce that registration for the 2020-2021 school year will be completed online through Skyward Family Access. Online registration will take you approximately 10-15 minutes. Online registration will open on Wednesday, July 15th. Parents/guardians were mailed a registration letter from the Student Services Office on Wednesday, July 15th. This mailing includes Skyward Login ID & Password information for each parent/guardian to utilize Skyward Family Access. All Skyward Family Access logins are reset each school year.
If you do not receive a paper mailing by Friday, July 17th with registration information please contact Christine Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 246-1730.
Please note you are not required to register in person if you complete online registration at home. Your student will just need to turn in any medical forms on the first day of school.
Onsite Registration Option
If you prefer to fully (doing the online portion on site) register during the on-site registration days you can do so according to the following schedule:
Location: Main Gym Entrance (north side of building)
Wednesday, July 29th: 8:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.
Thursday, July 30th: 12:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M.
Please be advised that all registration will be completed online. If you attend the on-site registration, you will have access to a computer to complete your online registration. It is strongly encouraged that you register online at home in order to save you time. Also, the first hour of registration typically has an overwhelming number of parents/students who arrive to register. It is recommended that you arrive later to avoid long lines.
If you register online prior to attending the on-site registration, you will be able to join a "fast track" to go directly to a counselor or fee payment, etc., and skip all other areas if needed.
In addition to registering online, you will have the option of paying registration and other fees online via credit or debit card. This process will also be available during the school year to make food service payments for school breakfasts and lunches. If you decide not to use the online payment system, you can submit payment for your child on the registration dates of July 29th or 30th. You can see a schedule of fees for the 2020-2021 school year below.
This year due to COVID-19 guidelines we are limiting the number of people in the building to 50 at a time. To assist with less traffic, we are making student schedules viewable on Skyward on Friday, July 17th. Please review your schedule with your student and if there are any schedule corrections needed please fill out the Student Correction Request form at https://forms.gle/pW3ASTcbrip6KmnUA. This form will also be emailed out to all parents and students on Friday, July 17th. The Student Correction Request form should be completed no later than Friday, July 24th. This will give counselors time to review the forms before registration. If your counselor is not able to make the correction you will be notified or contacted for an appointment at registration if necessary. Any needed schedule corrections after July 24th will be made the first week of school.
If you have a child that is brand new to the district (has never attended a MVTHS feeder school before), your child will not have a record in Skyward, so you will not be able to complete registration online. Please call or visit the Student Services Office prior to on-site registration (618-246-1730). We will need to contact the student's previous school for records. This process can take a few days depending on the availability of personnel at the previous school.
In addition to the steps in Skyward Family Access, you must read the following information. You should read the entirety of this article, as there are important disclosures that you will be required to acknowledge, as well as some documents that you might need to fill out in paper format.
Please read each section carefully and print any necessary forms to be filled out and returned to the appropriate office.

Technology Use Information
The Internet Safety & Acceptable Use Policy provides guidance on appropriate use of school district technology resources and actions to be taken in the event of policy violation. It also explains the measures the school district has taken to comply with the Federal Children's Internet Protection Act. Please read the policy carefully because you will be asked whether you grant permission for your student to use district technology resources as a part of the online registration process.
