Student Work Pickup/Dropoff
Manchester High School will have student work packets ready for pick-up on Monday, March 30, 2020. Pick will be available from 10am until 2 pm and from 4pm until 6pm. This is the ONLY time work may be picked up. Please follow the procedures below for everyone’s health and safety:
1. Students will enter at the front door of MHS. They should not be anywhere else on campus.
2. Cars should come thru the main driveway.
3. Students should remain in the car until directed to enter the building.
4. It is recommended that each student pickup their own work. If this is not possible, the person picking up the work MUST know the student’s class and teacher name for each course. There will not be anyone available to assist with this process. For example, you would need to know the class -Algebra 2 and the teacher – Mr Brown.
5. Work should be quickly collected for the classes in which the student is enrolled and the student should follow the sign to exit the hallway and quickly return to their vehicle so the line can move smoothly.
6. Drop off boxes for completed work for each course will be located at the entrance. Please bring completed work and place in the boxes. Make sure your name, teacher’s name, and block is on it your work.
7. It is important that assignments completed are returned. A second return date will be announced later. This work impacts your class grade. Work completed can also be scanned and emailed directly to your teachers.
The decision was made by the Meriwether County School Superintendent, Dr. Robert Griffin, and the MHS Administration to cancel the 2020 Prom. This decision was based on the current regulations imposed by our state government. We will issue refunds to the students by April 24th. We will provide specifics on when refunds will be mailed as soon as they are processed.

Interested in pursuing a career in the field of landscape architecture?
The UGA College of Environment and Design is hosting a Pre-Collegiate Summer Design Camp, a program for rising high school seniors interested in the fields of landscape architecture, environmental design and planning, and historic preservation.
The week-long residential summer program will accept 15-20 students, providing a fun and interactive introduction to design of the built environment. Applications are now open, and due by April 1, 2020. Camp spots are competitive, and applications will be evaluated based on essay question response and academic record. All accepted students will have expenses paid for through a grant from the UGA Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
Please note that as of now, we are still planning for this event, but are closely monitoring the developments of COVID-19. Should it need to be canceled or postponed due to public health concerns, we will notify applicants of that decision.
