Reminder! Testing day is Friday, April 12. Students need to be sure to have a fully charged chromebook for their tests. No cell phones or smart watches will be allowed into testing rooms (so plan to lock those up in your lockers when you arrive). Missed tests will be made up after-school the following Monday. All freshmen, sophomores and juniors are required to test. Juniors must be in their testing rooms at 7:40 a.m. in order to begin their test at 7:50 a.m. This ensures adequate time for testing prior to our 11:30 a.m. dismissal for all students. Seniors do not report to school on Friday, April 12.

A Joint Message from MPCUSD #23 and the Mt. Pulaski Police Department It's that time of year! High School Seniors will likely be chasing each other around local towns with water guns. The "Senior Assassin" game is here this year. In case you are out of the loop, the game involves high school seniors "stalking" and "shooting" each other with water guns in an attempt to be the last Senior standing. Think of "Hide & Seek" with water guns. Because the game involves a certain degree of hiding & sneaking around to surprise other players, there will likely be calls to the police, 911, and/or the school, reporting suspicious subjects that turn out to be students playing the game. For the students, the safest thing is not to play. We know it's “just a game,” but the reality is that it may not appear that way to the public. If a student plays anyway, here are a couple of reminders: 1 - School property is completely off limits as policy prohibits weapons (including toy/fake weapons) on school property. If played on school property, disciplinary consequences will occur. This includes both school properties, school parking lots and exteriors, and Veterans Park. 2 - Don't trespass onto or into other people's property while playing (especially at night) and, if you're asked to leave, do so. 3 - Use water pistols that are brightly colored, large and are clearly toys. Hiding in dark places and carrying anything that can be mistaken for a firearm is a recipe for disaster. Countless tragedies have occurred in our nation where someone with a realistic looking (but fake) weapon presents it and a police officer or citizen shoots them in defense. 4 - The same goes for wearing masks, camouflage, etc. - Don’t do it! Keep your everyday clothing on. 5 - If you see the police coming, don't run or hide. Instead, explain to the Officers what you are doing and cooperate if they ask you to stop. The MP Police Department and MPCUSD #23 do not condone the game. This is a notice to keep the public informed. If you see something or someone suspicious, please don't confront anyone yourself. Call 911!

REDUCE RISKY BEHAVIORS
The local health collaborative asks us to annually survey our students in grades 10 and 12 regarding specific issues facing teens today. This survey is called the Illinois Youth Survey. Information about the survey can be found at: https://iys.cprd.illinois.edu/ The survey will be conducted at MPHS on a school day between May 1 and May 17 this school year. If you choose to opt your son/daughter out of the survey, you may do so by returning the Opt-Out form completed and signed to the school office. The Opt-Out form was emailed to parents of 10th and 12th graders today via TeacherEase. There are also paper copies available in the high school office. If you would like to see the questions that are asked on the survey, a copy of the questions was emailed to parents today via TeacherEase. The questions can also be found on the aforementioned website.
