Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:

We are excited to offer the ACT (American College Test) on Wednesday, February 20th at Medical Lake High School. This is a great opportunity to take an important assessment in a convenient and familiar environment. The ACT can be used for a variety of things including college admission decisions for four-year universities, English and math placement at some local community colleges, and can even help meet graduation requirements for state testing.

Students will need to check in to the small gym no later than 7:55 a.m. on the morning of February 20th and should expect to be there until approximately 11:30-12:00 p.m.

In order to “sign up,” please pay $50.50 to Ms. Patty in the main office no later than Friday, January 4. You can also pay online using the InTouch payment system.

Per the ACT rules, only 10th, 11th and 12th graders are eligible to take the test. Please bring a calculator and let us know if you have questions. We strongly encourage you to take some free practice tests at:

MLHS Security Fence

Dear ML Parents and Guardians,

We are writing to share some important information in regards to a safety improvement that was recently installed at Medical Lake High School. Some of you may already know or have noticed the installation of an additional fence on campus. This fence was installed to heighten building security and to address two specific and ongoing challenges at MLHS.

Challenge # 1

One of the challenges we have encountered is necessary student travel between the two main buildings that house student classrooms during the school day. Locking the doors between those buildings has caused a significant disruption for years. When students encounter locked doors, they tend to bang on that locked door until someone comes and opens it.

•The creation of a secured courtyard via the installation of this fence will allow students to travel between the two main buildings on campus during school hours without disruption.

Challenge #2:

Inability to create a secure campus which prevents unauthorized travelers passing through campus at any time throughout the day at their leisure without necessary credentials to be on campus.

•The installation of a fence will detour unauthorized people from walking through campus throughout the day.

We are confident that this safety upgrade, in addition to the new, main door single-entry system, will provide another layer of security to keep students safe at school.

Some important things to know:

•Gates are only locked from the outside
•Students may exit gates to leave campus at all times
•Gates will be open for students to access school from 6:50 AM - 7:55 AM
•Gates will be locked at 7:55 AM
•Gates will re-open at lunch from 12:00-12:25
•Gates will be locked at 12:25 and not open again until the following day at 6:50 AM

Students who arrive to school beyond 7:55, regardless of the reason, will use the main doors to access school.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to discuss further.


Mr. Spring

After years of conversation and collaboration Medical Lake High School has made the decision to open our campus during lunch break to all grade levels on a one year trial basis. At the point we will make a final decision to continue with the open campus concept, or possibly move to a closed campus for all grade levels.
Please see complete letter to parents from MLHS Principal Mr. Chris Spring attached below.
