Here are some instructions on how to use the new calendar system.
From the Principal
All MN student athletes must have a current sports physical on file with the school to participate in extra curricular sporting activities. These physicals must be less than 3 years old. Typically, a student gets one at the beginning of their 7th and 10th grade years. If you are unsure if you student needs one, contact the school at 218-773-2405. Numerous clinics are being offered in the GF/EGF area this summer. Check the link below for Altru's clinic hours and download the sports physical form to take with to the clinic
New Naviance Web Site
The Counseling Office is pleased to introduce Family Connection from Naviance, a Web-based service designed especially for students and parents. Family Connection is a comprehensive website that you can use to help in making decisions about courses, colleges, and careers. Family Connection is linked with Counselor’s Office, a service that we use in our office to track and analyze data about college and career plans, so it provides up-to-date information that’s specific to our school.
