Parent Communication is key to success!

We hope that your family has had an enjoyable summer. The start of the 2018-19 school year is just a few short weeks away!

One of our goals at Mariner is to improve communication with our parents and community to enhance the educational experience for all students. It’s well-documented that students will do better in school if their parents/guardians are involved in their education. We want to open more doors for you to get involved. This year we will continue our monthly MHS newsletters to provide important information to our families. For the 2018-19 school year we are adding two additional ways to communicate: Twitter and “Coffee with the Principal”. If you use Twitter, you can follow us @MHSeverett for one-way communication highlighting important events and celebrating our school and student successes. Also starting this fall we will host a “Coffee with the Principal” event in our library each quarter. These informal meetings will give families and community members an opportunity to learn more about Mariner and ask any questions you may have. Also new this year is our transition to a new student information system this year called Qmlativ. Sometime in the next few months, you will be able to access your student’s updated grades and information by way of the Family Access Portal. More information will be communicated as we get closer to the launch date.  

Our traditional means of communicating are still in effect – our website and list serve. Make sure you check our Mariner website ( for important information and calendar dates throughout the year. And we will continue to send out important information via our listserv. Not on our listserv but want to be? Go to online and select Mariner High School. Enter your name and email and click Subscribe! Its that easy!
