Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is my pleasure to share the following “Mustang Nation” information with
you:
UPCOMING EVENTS:
4-01-14 – Juniors take the state science test in the am
-- Afterschool Intervention School Begins
4-02-14 – Sophomores on college trip all day
4-03-14 – Advisory Day
4-04-14 – Early Release Day
4-09-14 – NJROTC Annual Inspection
4-17-14 – College Fair at TA
4-18-14 – No school
5-03-14 – SAT for ALL Juniors/3rd year students
- SRTC parents & guardians please don’t forget that to meet state
attendance and funding regulations, SRTC is in session on the RSU 57
Early Release Day afternoons. This does create a transportation issue
for some students since the normal bus schedule cannot be followed.
Parents may provide transportation for their son or daughter, to and
from SRTC. Students may also provide, if able, their own
transportation to and from SRTC, but will ONLY be able to drive
themselves not other classmates. Students choosing this option will
need to fill out the Permission to Drive to SRTC paperwork in
advance and may only transport themselves. If a student cannot attend
SRTC on early release days due to lack of transportation, they will
receive an excused absence. This will not affect their grade, but will
reduce the time they have in class to complete expected work.
CONGRATULATIONS go to:
- The MHS Students who participated in the following special project.

received or should be receiving their SAT admission tickets in the
