To Learn. To Lead. To Make a Difference.


MHS Technology

We are constantly asking ourselves, "What can we do with these devices that would be impossible to do without them?" Second, third, fourth, and fifth grade students have access to their own Chromebooks during the school day. Kindergarten and first grade students have access to iPads during the school day in a ratio of around 2:1.

For Parents

• Students in 2nd through 5th grades have a school Google account. Gmail access only allows students to email their teachers. Students do have access to Google Drive. Students are encouraged to use their school Google accounts for school purposes only. Students should not use their school Google account to sign up for other services like Instagram. If a student is using YouTube outside of school, they must make sure they are signed out of their school Google account. Students in Kindergarten and 1st grades use iPads.
• Students are welcome to bring a mouse to use with their Chromebooks. An inexpensive, corded mouse is best.
• Students have access to digital tools such as, Envision Math, Words Their Way, Science Fusion, Tumblebooks, TrueFlix, and BrainPop. Students' homeroom teachers can provide log in information for these digital tools.

For Students

• Be Technology Safe! Never share personal information online. Never share your passwords (except with parents and teachers). When you are online make sure you treat people the way you want to be treated. If anything online makes you uncomfortable tell a parent, teacher, or trusted adult immediately. Check out SafeKids.Com
