If Marquette High needs to cancel classes and/or co-curricular activities or announce an early dismissal due to inclement weather, procedures posted on the Parent portal will be followed. Since students come from many areas of southeastern Wisconsin and weather conditions can vary greatly, parents are reminded that they make the final decision as to whether it is safe for their sons to travel to school when weather is a factor.
All students who drive to school are strongly encouraged to park their cars in one of the two student parking lots rather than the street when space is available. If students do park on the street, they must be aware of the winter parking regulations that went into effect Dec. 1. Signs are posted that restrict parking on some streets during winter months. Click here for detailed information: City of Milwaukee Parking Regulations. If students have any questions they can speak to a guard at the Security Desk. Students will be ticketed by the City of Milwaukee if they are in violation.

On Sept. 5 the Attorney General announced the repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in the coming months. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Jesuit Order have long supported DACA youth (or Dreamers), believing that DACA is a way to carry out Catholic social teaching to protect the life and dignity of all people, particularly the most vulnerable.
At a recent neighborhood meeting hosted by MUHS, concerns were expressed by area homeowners regarding MUHS students rolling through stop signs and exceeding speed limits on streets near the high school. Stop signs at 34th and Clybourn and 39th and Michigan are specific problem intersections, as well as excessive speed on Michigan Street between 35nd and 39th Streets. Students should obey all traffic laws for their safety and the safety of our community. Neighbors and our security guards will report offenders (by license plate number or car description) to Security Director Dubis and Mr. Taylor for follow up. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe.
