We are going to have Upper School building orientation sessions for all students prior to the start of school so we can discuss the health and safety protocols that will be in place for this school year.
Students will be provided a snack by Taher during each of the orientation sessions so they can practice going through the Servery for meals.
The orientation sessions will meet in the Hognander Chapel at the Upper School and students will need to wear masks while in the building. See the schedule for the days below:
Monday, August 24
- 9:00 – 10:30: Orientation for all 10th grade students.
- 10:30 – 12:00: Orientation for all 11th grade students.
- 12:00 – 1:30: Orientation for all 12th grade students.
Tuesday, August 25
- 9:00 – 1:00: Orientation for all 9th grade students.
All 9th grade students will have a half-day orientation, beginning in the Hognander Chapel. A snack and lunch will be provided. Students will meet their advisors and counselors, receive Student Planners and Handbooks, find their classrooms, learn about the Upper School’s Cultural Field Experience program, and meet current Minnehaha Academy students and teachers.
NOTE: NEW students should attend the orientation specific to their grade. Special activities for new students will be included in their grade-specific orientation.
