The following is the rationale and the considerations behind the decision on whether or not to delay or close school due to inclement weather. We know these decisions impact families throughout the District who may need to find alternative care for their children. The over-riding consideration in making these decisions is the safety of our students, staff and others in the community. Beyond that, the process becomes more complicated.
Welcome to McLoughlin High School, home of the Pioneers. I am the principal, Mario Uribe Saldaña. I would like to begin by welcoming you to a great school year. We have excellent opportunities at Mac-Hi in our education, sports, clubs, and programs.
Our Pioneer students can take Dual Credit courses to earn up to an Associate of Arts (AA) Degree. Courses are offered in person and online thru our Milton-Freewater Virtual Learning Academy (MFVLA) program and Blue Mountain Community College (BMCC).
We offer multiple Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways: Industrial Engineering Pathway, Manufacturing and Technology Pathway with Pioneer Lumber services to the community (one pathway), Agricultural Pathway with the FFA club, Design and Media Arts Pathway, Culinary Arts Pathway, and the Business Management and Administration Pathway.
Students are always encouraged to stay active in our programs and clubs which include: Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), Future Farmers of America (FFA), Heritage Club, Key Club, National Honor Society (NHS), Ski Club, Varsity Club, Game Club, Speech and Debate Club, and Trap Shooting.
Our athletics department offers great opportunities with sports offered each season. Fall sports include: soccer, volleyball, cross country, and cheer. Winter sports include: basketball, wrestling, and cheer. Spring sports include: baseball, softball, tennis, track and field, golf, and cheer.
I encourage all Pioneer parents to visit our campus and take a tour to learn about all the great things going on at Mac-Hi.
