Teachers reviewed the Dress Code Expectations (click here) with students on Friday, August 20th. Faculty will begin enforcing Dress Code on Monday, August 23rd. Students in violation of dress code will be expected to correct their attire immediately – using a change of clothes provide by the school or parent/guardian. Dress code infractions do accumulate and can result in disciplinary action.
Students are responsible for taking care of the Chromebook that has been assigned to them. McMillen High School will not exchange Chromebooks for broken cases or hardware, cracked screens, spillage or water damage of any kind. Students should report to the front office with a parent/guardian to pay for the damaged Chromebook in order to receive a replacement device.

Dropping-Off Items to Students:
Please leave all items for students in the cubbies in the foyer (to your left when entering). All items should be labeled with the student name and ID number.

If your student needs to be dismissed early for appointments, instruct them to report to the front office to pick up a pass; this allows them to be in the office when you arrive. Before you arrive – please complete the MHS Check-Out Information by clicking here. At the time of their appointment, please have your driver’s license/ some form of identification ready for the front office staff. Students will only be released to individuals listed on their Emergency Contact Card in ParentPortal.
