Sometimes school is cancelled due to South Dakota's weather. These cancellations can take the form of closing school entirely for the day, starting later than usual, or ending the school day earlier than usual. In all three cases, we announce changes in the school day of KORN, KQRN, KMIT, KOOL 98 and the KELOLAND closeline. We also send out announcements on the Mitchell School District app, which you may wish to download on your phone. We try to make all these announcements as early as possible. If school is called off during the day, your MHS student will be dismissed in the usual manner, we will not notify you by phone. If you desire that your child remain at school, you will need to notify the MHS office. If you as the parent believe that it is unsafe for your child to go to school because of weather conditions, a note or call to the school office will excuse the student's absence that day.
