Back to School Night 2020-21

"Majors achieve and thrive together with purpose and pride."

Welcome to Back to School Night for the 2020-21 school year! Although we are “socially” distancing ourselves, we are excited and eager to begin this school year with you.

This page has been designed to provide you with the opportunity to hear and see from our teachers, our administrative team, our school board members and much more!

For the best experience, we recommend you have a copy of your child’s schedule or access to your SIS ParentVue account. With this information, you will be able to easily navigate and find your desired destination.

To serve as a model for what your child will experience during distance learning, our Back to School Night has been designed as an asynchronous activity. This type of activity provides you with the flexibility to work at your own pace, in your own space and within your schedule. This page will remain active for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year should you have a need to return later.

We hope the resources we have compiled are informative and provide perspective for our instructional goals for the 2020 – 21 school year. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding content shared, please take a moment to share your thoughts using our MVHS BTSN Comment Form. For specific class questions or concerns, access our Staff Directory and email your child’s teacher directly.

We are committed to providing the best instructional support during the 2020 – 21 school year. We are MVHS and we are Major Strong!
