A Message from Dr. Mays - Fall, 2020

I feel very confident in saying that we are all in an unfamiliar situation.  In over two decades in education, I have personally never experienced what we are currently living through in our society.  There are more questions than answers and we all seem to be facing new guidelines and regulations that change as fast as the Texas weather.  Through all of this uncertainty, here are the things we know for sure: we are going to do the very best that we can to provide a safe environment here on campus at Mount, we are going to work hard to educate your student to the best of our ability, and we will do our very best to keep our students as the focus of all of our educational endeavors.  With this being said, it must be recognized that the current context of COVID-19 has created a need to utilize technology more than we ever have before at Mount.  I am thrilled to announce that we are now a 1 to 1 campus (meaning every student on campus has access to a digital device).  We will utilize technology to further enhance the educational opportunities and experiences of our students.  We ask for your support, patience, and understanding as we undertake this monumental endeavor.

The motto for this year is It Starts With ME.  And we believe that in all aspects of school, whether it be safety, academia, athletics, FFA and Ag, Fine Arts, or any other realm of school, It Starts With ME.  We look forward to another great school year, and as always, we welcome your communication and would love to work with you to enhance the education of your student!
