MHS CODE OF DISCIPLINE

            Since no student has the right to interfere with another student’s right to learn, each student will be expected to observe a code of personal conduct which will in no way interfere with the educational opportunities for other students. The administration and faculty will make and enforce such rules as are necessary for the efficient operation of the school.
