Reopening Plan

Start of Year and Calendar

We want to fully support your son as he adjusts to our hybrid model. While MUHS teachers have participated in professional development and planning throughout the summer, we will continue to make adjustments to support and care for your son as he returns to school in a safe manner. We appreciate your continued understanding as we make adjustments to address the many needs of our current situation.

  • We will commence the school year with a gradual return.
  • The registration and welcome back process for sophomores, juniors, and seniors will be streamlined and is optional for in-person participation on Wednesday, Aug. 19.
  • Freshman registration, orientation, and the first days of classes will occur on Thursday, Aug. 20, and Friday, Aug. 21, starting at 8 a.m.
  • The first day of in-person classes for Team Blue is Monday, Aug. 24. (Team Gold will not report virtually on this day).
  • The first day of in-person classes for Team Gold is Tuesday, Aug. 25. (Team Blue will not report virtually on this day.).
  • The first day of classes for those participating as full-time Hilltoppers@Home students is Wednesday, Aug. 26. These are students whose families have completed the opt-in form. (Students who attended on Monday or Tuesday will not report virtually on Wednesday.).
  • On Thursday, Aug. 27, Team Blue will attend classes at MUHS; Team Gold and Hilltoppers@Home will attend virtually.
  • Please see the first quarter calendar of classes.


Bell Schedule -- Scenario B

Classes are being offered in-person and online due to restrictions to room occupancy at 50% in order to apply social distancing requirements. Students have been assigned a cohort (Blue or Gold) and report to school two or three days a week. The cohort not in the building on a given day will learn and engage in classes from home.

  • Class transition time is 6 minutes (instead of 4 minutes) to accommodate adjusted traffic patterns and social distancing norms.
  • Homerooms will meet three times per week to provide student activities and socialization during the day.
  • Dedicated Advising time will be provided to address the socio-emotional well being of students.
  • Late start will be offered every Wednesday (instead of Thursday) with a Liturgy period for worship and faith formation.

Purchasing Textbooks

Two methods to purchase textbooks are available. Information about the Used Books Sale sponsored by Mothers Guild and our online bookstore eCampus can be found on the MUHS Bookstore webpage:

Textbooks should be purchased by the first day of school. We advise students to purchase all other school supplies after the first day of classes when teachers will distribute course syllabi stating required course materials.
