While meals will be provided at no charge for all students this school year, families whose students would be eligible for meal support in a typical year should complete the free/reduced-price meal application as soon as possible. A new application must be completed each school year.
Confirmed eligibility for free/reduced-price meals ensures access to many benefits beyond school meals.
Benefits include, but are not limited to the following:
- Free SAT/ACT
- Free college applications
- Free/reduced internet additional technology for schools
- Training/resources for parents to use at home
Welcome to our virtual Curriculum night. This is a special edition of The Pulse Post where you will find video presentations from your students’ administrative team, counselors, parent coordinator, and teachers. To navigate the virtual curriculum night, you will need to obtain a copy of your student’s class schedule via StudentVUE, ParentVue, or the parent portal. We strongly encourage all families to frequently check our website, the GCPS website, and follow both on Instagram. We are excited to have your children back in the building and look forward to another successful school year. Health and Happiness – Mrs. Mosley

In late July, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), updated its guidance for schools, recommending that children, teachers, and others in K-12 schools across the nation wear masks this school year, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status. This recommendation is in line with those of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Based on this guidance and for the safety of our students, staff, and visitors, Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) requires the wearing of masks or cloth face coverings in our schools and facilities and on school buses, regardless of vaccination status.
The CDC indicates correct and consistent mask use is a critical step everyone can take to prevent getting and spreading COVID-19. Masks work best when everyone wears them, but not all masks provide the same protection. With that in mind, Gwinnett County Public Schools requires masks to:
- Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin.
- Fit securely against both sides of the face.
Masks that have an exhalation valve or vent and masks made from mesh fabrics are not recommended by the CDC as they allow virus particles to escape and spread. As a result, these types of masks do not meet GCPS’ mask requirement.
Gwinnett County Public Schools is using the most recent CDC guidance and information about transmission and case rates within our community as part of its decision-making process regarding mitigation efforts. The district will continue to monitor current conditions and updates to guidance, using this information to make changes to its mask requirement and other mitigation strategies during the 2021–22 school year as needed.
School Messenger is a rapid notification system used to contact families in Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) via telephone, text message, and email message. This district uses the system to communicate information related to districtwide events, including safety alerts and school closing due to inclement weather. Schools also use the system to communicate general/non-emergency information related to school events and attendance messages via email. MHSHS will send home a weekly newsletter through School Messenger called The Pulse Post where families can be informed about what is happening at MHSHS.
