MHPS CLASSIFIED STAFF HIGHLIGHT: Mr. Thomas Merry Prior to joining MHPS, I worked at The University of Notre Dame as the Purchasing Manager for the concessions and catering for all sports. Ordering and dispersing the food for all of the sporting events gave me the opportunity to be on-hand for all the games. Soon I realized I wanted to be more involved in the menu planning, so I accepted the Concessions Manager position. Some people may think having your office in a 90,000-seat football facility would be the best part of the job; however, for me it was the creativity in creating menus that was the allure. During this time I bought a bakery that featured an Amish soft pretzel hand-twisted by one of our pretzel artisans. It didn't take long to realize I was a cook not a baker. I have worked many concerts, collegiate sporting events, and fed some famous people. However the most interesting was making Mitt Romney a pretzel when he was running for President. He was in shock when we rang it up and charged him full price for it. The best part of working here at MHPS is trying to make lunch a positive time for the students. Our dedicated staff truly cares about cooking food that these kids will enjoy and doing it within the strict guidelines of the government.

Bomber families, At my house this afternoon we’re watching every weather report we can find, and I imagine many of you are as well. There are no roads to drive or parking lots to scrape right now. We’re just in a holding pattern at the moment. I know that’s not a great answer for any of you, but that is where we are. I want you to know that — as it is on any regularly-scheduled school day — our goal is to be in session tomorrow. However, the reality is that we may need to cancel. If we do, I plan to let you know by 5 in the morning. At this time, our families are in a position where we have to hope for the best but prepare for the worst by making alternate plans for childcare, etc. if school is cancelled. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Mrs. Dewey
