Detailed information, including student orientation schedules, course selection updates, and more will be emailed to families separately in August.

Opening Days Schedule | Aug. 25 - Sept. 10

The schedule below serves as an outline for opening days and includes drop-off and pick-up times for day students. Returning students and families should refer to the Student Orientation Schedule (emailed to families in early August) for detailed information about where to be when. Throughout the weekend all boarding students have additional required programming that is detailed in the full Student Orientation Schedule. Day Students are expected to attend all required events, and are welcome to be on campus more. It is most important that students and families communicate with each other about drop off and pick up times.

Website Information

The only areas needed for sign-in are for My BackPack (important school forms, tuition payments, and debit account set-up) and Magnus Health (health forms for your MHS student). Parents should have received instructions about signing in to both of these sites via email.

If you have questions about signing into My BackPack, call (413) 395-7292 or email technology@misshalls.org.

If you have questions about signing into Magnus Health, call (413) 395-7074 or email cpuz@misshalls.org.
