Spring Break will conclude on Friday, March 27th. Instruction will resume on Monday, March 30th. Free school lunch will be offered every weekday in the MHS front parking lot through the end of April.

Letter from Administration dated: Monday, March 16th
Manti High School Families & Students,
Thank you for your patience as we move into a new phase of instruction. We met this morning with our District leaders and we have also collaborated with our awesome faculty to determine the best way forward. While we know our current circumstances are far from ideal, we are confident we can continue to provide effective instruction.
If necessary, students may come to the school for a few minutes over the coming days to get supplies out of their lockers and/or classrooms. While we have been instructed to not have large groups of people in the building, we understand that this dismissal happened quickly and some students may need to get supplies or personal belongings out of the school.
There will be no instruction delivered until Wednesday, March 18th. Beginning on that day, online instruction will continue until the current school dismissal is reversed. As of now, the dismissal will last at least until Friday, March 27th. Please remember that spring break is scheduled for the week of Monday, March 23rd - Friday, March 27th. There will be school services offered during spring break.
Going forward, each teacher will use Canvas as their main mode of instructional delivery. We have been directed to simplify our curriculum and focus on the most important aspects of the State Core during this time. Our teachers will be in the building and will be able to provide support and help via email and canvas. Please communicate any questions or concerns to them in a prompt manner. Teachers will reach out to each student to ensure they have access to instruction and assignments. If your student has any questions regarding how to access or use Canvas, please call the school and we will address these concerns. You may also contact us if your student has any issues with their iPad over the coming weeks. Please call the school with any technology questions between 9:00 A.M. and 3:00 P.M., Monday- Friday and our fine technology team will assist you. District tech. support will also be available during this time.
While our mode of learning will now be via the internet, we know that some of our families do not have online access. The school district will take measures to increase the power of our wifi in our parking lot so students may access the internet there if necessary. We also have been told that local companies and organizations will increase the flow of wifi at current public use areas such as parks, libraries, etc. Lastly, if you currently do not have internet access in your home, Centracom has announced they will install their services in your home for free until the end of the school year. If this is a resource that would be beneficial for you, please contact Centracom for more information. We feel strongly that with these resources, students will be able to access our online curriculum.
Free school lunch will be served daily, Monday - Friday (with the exception of spring break) starting this Wednesday. Lunch will be served in the school’s front parking lot from 11:30 -12:30. During this time, school lunch will function similarly to the summer lunch program. All children age eighteen and under are welcome to pick up lunch. Vehicles without students will not be allowed to pick up lunches. Each vehicle will only be permitted to pick up lunches for the children in their individual car. If students decide to walk to the school to get lunch, they will be allowed to pick one up but will be asked to take it home.
As this situation continues to evolve, we will keep you as updated as possible. Please make it a regular habit to check your email over the coming weeks. We urge all of you to follow good hygiene practices to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are thankful for your support and understanding during this time. Finally, please reach out to the school with any questions or concerns. We are here to help. Thank you.
Karen Soper, Principal
Josh Palmer, Assistant Principal
