Student Schedule Information - Update 9/8/2020

posted Sep 8, 2020, 2:12 PM by Richard Barden   [ updated Sep 8, 2020, 2:13 PM ]

Good Afternoon Methuen High School Students, Families, Faculty, and Staff: 


On Friday, September 4, 2020, student schedules and cohort information were made available in Infinite Campus (IC). When viewing your student’s schedule in IC, you will notice that there are three columns: AA, BB, and CC. Please note the following: 


  • AA is Monday/Thursday - blocks 1, 2, 3, and 4 (80 minute blocks)

  • BB is Tuesday/Friday - Student Support block followed by blocks 5, 6, and 7 (80 minute blocks)

  • CC is Wednesday - all blocks (1-7) meet in chronological order (45 minute blocks)


Depending on how you are viewing your student’s schedule, the arrangement of blocks on CC day may appear out of order. If you are using the IC app (on a phone/iPad) to view your student’s schedule, it should read correctly with blocks 1-7 in order. If you are viewing your student’s schedule through a web browser or printed on paper, the blocks are not listed in the correct order. Regardless of how you are viewing your student’s schedule, the times listed for each block are correct. When viewing your student’s schedule on CC day (Wednesday), please view the times indicated for each block to be certain you are following blocks 1 through 7 in the correct order. We are working with IC to correct this issue. 


As noted in the Weekly Message on Friday, the MHS remote and hybrid schedule can be found on the bottom left side of the MHS website under MHS LINKS. The Student Support block is scheduled to run from 7:30 to 8:50 a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays. This time can be used for the following: 


  • Student extra help/reinforcement of a topic/lesson 

  • IEP and 504 meetings

  • Student progress meetings (virtual or in person) with teachers and families 

  • Teacher communications (email or phone call) with families

  • Student meetings with school counselors

  • Work completion with teacher assistance


Students are strongly encouraged to use the Student Support block to connect with counselors and teachers for support. Faculty and staff are also available daily before school (7:00 - 7:30 a.m.) and after dismissal/last block (1:40 - 2:00 p.m.). Students are encouraged to communicate with teachers and counselors to schedule a meeting time. 


Please do not hesitate to contact your student’s counselor, teachers, or the Main Office at (978) 722-6040 with questions or concerns.   


Thank you, 



Richard Barden

Principal

Si está utilizando la aplicación IC (en un teléfono / iPad) para ver el horario de su estudiante, debe leerse correctamente con los bloques 1-7 en orden. Si está viendo el horario de su estudiante a través de un navegador web o impreso en papel, los bloques no están listados en el orden correcto. Independientemente de cómo esté viendo el horario de su estudiante, los tiempos enumerados para cada bloque son correctos. Cuando vea el horario de su estudiante el día CC (miércoles), vea los tiempos indicados para cada bloque para asegurarse de que está siguiendo los bloques del 1 al 7 en el orden correcto. Estamos trabajando con IC para corregir este problema.
