    Mr. Jason J. Slater
    Manhattan High School Principal

    Welcome to the start of the 2021-22 school year. I am excited for school to begin and for our students and staff to bring the campus back to life. Every school year is unique and presents us all with challenges. Together we will adapt and overcome these challenges. Following is some general information regarding the start of the school year. The School Board approved our Safe Return to In-person Instruction/Continuity of Services plan on August 17th. Please take time to review the plan on our website at www.rolltigers.org. Here are some highlights:
    ● In-Person Instruction - MHS is back to full in-person instruction and will not be providing a remote learning option this fall.
    ● Masks - Masks are optional this year at Manhattan Public Schools. Students are expected to respect the choice of others to wear or not wear masks at school or on campus. Masks are currently required on school buses.

    The District Open House will be held on August 24th from 3:00 - 5:00 PM. The first day of school is August 25th. Classes will run from 8:25 AM - 3:24 PM, Monday - Thursday and 8:25 AM - 2:42 PM on Friday. Students report to their first period class on day one. School Pictures are Friday, August 27th. All states, communities, and schools have cultural items that are unique. The following are some basics for Manhattan High School.
    ● We take off our hats in the building during the school day.
    ● We say the Pledge at the beginning of each week.
    ● We ask students to dress like they are going to school and not the beach. Error on the side of modesty and you’ll be covered. Specifics are in the Student Handbook. Being respectful, responsible, and ready will help set your student up for success this school year, and will take care of most of our school’s rules.

    If you or your student drive, drive safely. Students are permitted to park in the high school parking lot from the tennis courts to the main (5-12) entrance. For safe traffic flow, we ask that students NOT exit the parking lot by the tennis courts. 

    Manhattan High School has a closed campus, including lunch. Students may bring a cold lunch from home or eat hot lunch provided by the school. Students eat in the commons, activities room, in a supervised classroom, or outside. Following lunch, students are encouraged to go outside and socialize in the courtyards around the high school.

    I am excited for the school year to begin and honored to serve the Manhattan community. The high school staff and I are committed to providing all of our students a great high school experience. If you have any questions please contact myself or the high school secretary, Mrs. Hayley Moon at 284-3341.

    Take care,
    Mr. Jason J. Slater
