A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

This week we celebrated Millennium High School students and their accomplishments during our annual MHS Awards Ceremony. Members of the community presented scholarship awards to many of our senior class recipients. Other awards included athletes of the year, aspire/advance/achieve academic awards and falcon of the year awards in electives. Special recognition was given to senior Nate Washington for his accomplishment in achieving the Navy Reserve Officers Training Corps BOOST Scholarship. Congratulations to all who were recognized and to the entire senior class for all of your hard work and dedication. I am so very PROUD of all of you!!!!

FAST TRACK 2022 – Monday, May 23rd to Friday, June 24th

 

FAST TRACK is a MANDATORY program for all high school students which gives them the opportunity to take ten credits of a course to remediate or accelerate, and/or to take a college course. During FAST TRACK, students take a full year (two semesters) of a course for 4.25 hours a day (includes a fifteen minute break) for five weeks beginning Monday, May 23rd to Friday, June 24th. The day begins at 8:30AM and ends at 12:45PM.

 

 

ATTENDANCE: Attendance during FAST TRACK is different from the school year in that students are only allowed to miss 8 hours of time during the entire FAST TRACK. Tardies count as one hour and a day is four hours. Any combination above 8 hours results in a need to withdraw and an F grade for the affected semester. There are no excused absences during FAST TRACK. This is necessary in order to meet the state requirement for issuing credit for a year’s worth of a course. Students may not miss more than two days (8 total hours). Four tardies are the equivalent of one day of school, therefore; two days absent and one tardy will result in a failing grade.

Letters have been mailed home including additional details as well as your child’s FAST TRACK class.

Case counts by school

PCS: 1

DCS: 3

MHS: 2

In terms of exposures, the CDPH guidelines for K-12 schools, most recently updated on April 6, 2022, now state the following:

Schools may consider permitting asymptomatic exposed students, regardless of their COVID-19 vaccination status or location of exposure, to continue to take part in all aspects of K-12 schooling, including sports and extracurricular activities, unless they develop symptoms or test positive for COVID-19. It is strongly recommended that exposed students wear a well-fitting mask indoors around others for at least 10 days following the date of last exposure, if not already doing so.

 

As always, a letter will be sent home or emailed if someone in your child’s class tests positive. To read the guidelines in their entirety, refer to the following link:

Did you know that one of our graduation requirements at Millennium High School is a yearlong course called CAREER EDUCATION. This class is a Career and College Exploration course. All 11th grade students take this class in which there is also a six week business and etiquette series to help prepare students for mock interviews and a senior internship experience.

The Juniors had a chance to connect with local business partners throughout the community to learn about potential internship opportunities for next year and apply their newfound skills to the world of work. They did an amazing job!

If you have a business or non-profit interested in providing opportunities for our students, please contact Mrs. Schaffran at tschaffran@tracylc.net

You must choose/type in your specific school (Millennium High School) and you will need your student school I.D. number.

You can drop off payment in the lunch dropbox that is located in the main office. We are still in the process of adding new students to our mealtime system and hope to have it completed next week.

Lunch is ordered the day before it is delivered to class. All students should order their lunch during 4th period/HUB time. The Google Classroom code is SEUNSOU. Applications for Free & Reduced meals must be completed and turned in every year. You can apply on the school’s website.

SPED SPOTLIGHT:

Planning for life after high school can bring mixed emotions. Parents and students may feel excited, but worried at the same time. For students with disabilities the decisions that need to be made can be especially difficult. The best way to tackle these decisions is to inform yourselves of your rights and possible supports early on in the process. Students who were previously on a 504 plan or an IEP have protections after high school both in educational settings and in the workplace.

Check out this informational website about educational opportunities after high school:

https://www.parentingspecialneeds.org/article/educational-options-after-high-school-for-students-with-special-needs/

The California Career Center has also compiled several resources for students after high school:

A Message from our CEO, Carolyn Woods

Dear parents, families, and guardians,

With most COVID-related restrictions being lifted, we are now able to prepare to welcome back visitors and volunteers to campus! Our EL team is bringing back the Parent Cafe this month. Parents will gather on campus in the EL room to learn about tips on helping their students succeed in school. Scroll down for more information, including the date and time. The Parent Cafe is open to all parents.

We are in the process of implementing a new system for parent volunteers. All volunteers will be required to complete a new application, provide a current TB test, and complete a Live Scan. If you anticipate becoming a volunteer on a future field trip, volunteering in a classroom, or as a driver for an athletic event and would like to begin the process, you may ask the front office for an application.

We hope you are as anxious to return to on-campus events as we are to welcome you back!

PLEASE NOTE: All Delta College classes will be online in Summer 2022. These courses will require a high level of independence, as the courses are accelerated (only 6-8 weeks long) and asynchronous, meaning that there are no required Zoom class meetings with your instructor. Students will have to manage themselves to meet deadlines – completing readings, assignments, projects and tests, and reach out to their instructor and/or Delta College staff for help when needed. Online summer college classes require a lot of responsibility and determination. Here are our recommended classes for this semester: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LlFxGJQMg1_wYAVtc1QsHvLgEdgydGMbeUN3-26-CvM/edit?usp=sharing

If your student missed a step or needs help, please see our website https://millenniumcounseling.weebly.com/college-early-start.html and feel free to email MHS Counselor Ms. Moore at LMoore@tracylc.net.

 

Please reach out to the MHS Counselors ASAP! The March 16th deadline is fast approaching!

LUNCH: Ordering lunch is slightly different this year. All students should have a lunch account to pay for lunches. To register, go to https://www.mymealtime.com/ and create an account. You must choose/type in your specific school (Millennium High School) and you will need your student school I.D. number. If you have any difficulties creating an account online, money can still be added to your account by either cash, check, or debit card. You can drop off payment in the lunch dropbox that is located in the main office. We are still in the process of adding new students to our mealtime system and hope to have it completed next week.

Lunch is ordered the day before it is delivered to class. All students should order their lunch during 4th period/HUB time. The Google Classroom code is SEUNSOU. Applications for Free & Reduced meals must be completed and turned in every year. You can apply on the school’s website.
