Principal’s Update

May 20, 2022

Dear Mead High School Community,

With the last days of school upon us, we still have a lot going on. This week we honored many of our 9th, 10th, and 11th graders at our academic awards night. We also hosted many students from our feeder system as well as the Mobile Innovation Lab as a part of our Design Guild STEM Challenge. The Class of 2022 had their last day of school on Thursday. Our graduates have a big week coming up with graduation rehearsal, graduation walk, senior night, and then graduation on Saturday. Finally, we have many athletes competing at the CHSAA State Track Meet this weekend and Timbre Shehee will represent us a the girls golf regionals this week. Best of luck as we finish another successful athletics season.

As you know school safety is a top priority of ours. To that end we were directed to go into a “Secure” status by local authorities after a suspicious report came to the police department. When in a “Secure” situation, our students continue business as usual inside the building, but we lock the door until the outside situation is handled. This can sometimes be confused with a “Lockdown” which is used in more threatening and dangerous situations. I am really proud of the way our students and staff responded, just like we have practiced. It is a testament that our safety and security measures are working as they should. For more information on our safety practices you can visit the Standard Response Protocol website.

Next week is the last week of school. That means our students will be working on final exams and projects. These activities should be a culmination of all that they have learned this semester. Please make sure your students are studying and preparing this weekend so they can complete these activities prior to the summer. As a reminder any student who does not pass a core class will be required to participate in summer school. Please connect with your children’s teachers if you have any questions.

Thank you again for your support. #WeAreMead

Sincerely,

Brian Young
