STUDENT EXPECTATIONS FOR AMI INSTRUCTION: We understand that many families may experience challenges in scheduling. The most important expectation is completing and submitting assignments as close as possible to when they are due. Teachers will offer digital face to face lessons with students 2-4 days per week. Students should make an effort to attend live instruction. Sessions will be recorded.

In light of new information that has been received, the MHS 2020 Prom is going to be postponed at this time rather than cancelled. Please keep in mind that it may have to be cancelled so if you purchase attire, you will want to make sure you can return it. Sorry for the confusion. We hope this has not caused any inconvenience and we do hope that we can continue to have the prom this year.
We regret that the 2020 Maumelle High School prom has been cancelled due to the effects of COVID-19. We have been following the news carefully and feel that this is what is best for the health and safety of our students. It was not an easy choice to make, but because of the uncertainties surrounding the spread of the virus and the fact that Prom is in just one month, we had to come to this decision at this time.
We know AMI days can be difficult. How's the homework coming along? How are you staying entertained? From homework to box forts, let us know and we'll share your pictures! You can tag us in a post or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. #pcssdproud #equityandexcellence
