Announcements

  • A message from MDHS Principal, Dr. Rhonda Boone...

    Welcome to Cane Country! Whether you are a new student to Mount Dora High School (MDHS) or a returning student, we look forward to you joining our Hurricane Family.  I hope that you had a great summer and the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends. As we begin the school year, I would like to share some important news and changes you will see.

    Excitement is brewing here at Mount Dora High School as we begin the 2016-2017 school year! We are proud to announce our partnership with Lake Sumter State College (LSSC) that will allow us to offer college classes right on our campus with our very own teachers that have been selected as the Adjuncts. As you arrive on campus you will see a new face in our administration, Ms. Kim Walker-Updike, Assistant Principal.  We are very fortunate the rest of our Administrative team remains the same with Mr. Herman Durias and Ms. Marlene Straughan as your Assistant Principals. Officer Smith of the Mount Dora Police Department has been reappointed as our School Resource Officer again this year. As you see new faces, whether they be students, faculty or staff, please welcome and show them our Hurricane Pride. Please take note of the revised bell schedule (listed below). The first bell will ring at 7:15 a.m. and school will end at 2:20 p.m. (early release Wednesdays at 1:20 p.m.).

    Canes start this year with determination to do your best! We all look forward to working with our students and their parents to see that each student is provided the opportunity to be successful at MDHS. We encourage you to become involved in the various activities, clubs and sports offered at MDHS. Parents, please take an active role in your student’s education. Lake County has an online program in Skyward that you can monitor your student’s progress and success throughout the school year. If you are not familiar with this online program, please contact the guidance office and they will be happy to walk you through the set up process.

    As Principal of Mount Dora High School, my sincerest thanks goes to our students, parents, faculty, staff and the community of Mount Dora for the continued support I receive from each of you. The administrators, faculty and staff have worked hard over the summer getting ready for the 2016-2017 school year.   We look forward to your return to Cane Country and having a great year!

     

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Boone
