MHS CONFERENCES February  23rd and 24th

Thursday • 3:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Friday • 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 Noon

Moline High School will hold second semester parent/teacher conferences on February 23rd and February 24th.  The format for conferences allows parents to meet directly with their son or daughter’s teachers.  We strongly encourage your student to attend the conference with you, as this provides students an opportunity to share in the responsibility for their education.  Conferences should be seen as an opportunity for students, parents/guardians, and teachers to work together to improve the student’s educational outcomes.  


In order to facilitate your schedule, you are encouraged, but not required to reserve a ten-minute conference slot in advance with the teachers of your choice.  You may also sign-up on the sheet next to the teacher’s door to reserve a time slot the day of conferences.  This will allow you to schedule appointments and reduce the amount of wait time.  Due to time constraints, we must limit conferences to ten minutes.  If you need to meet with a teacher for a longer amount of time, please contact the teacher and set up an alternative day and time for a conference.  Teacher contact information will be available at conferences, or you can click on the staff directory on the right side of this web page.



This year's Sadie Hawkins Dance is February 25th, at 7-10 PM. It will be held at the Quad City Botanical Gardens in Rock Island.

Tickets are on sale now at the Moline High School Bookstore. The cost is $10/ticket until Wednesday, February 22nd then

the price is $15/ticket on Thursday & Friday. Tickets can still be purchased at the door for $20/ticket.

School Safety

Moline High School is pleased to announce that for the 2016-2017 school year we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System to build on campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students safe is knowing who is in our building at all times. The Raptor System will better allow us to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our school.


Upon entering Moline High School, all visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, which will be scanned into the system. The Raptor system will check the national database to identify dangerous or wanted individuals and sex offenders. It is important to note the Raptor system only scans the visitor’s name, date of birth and photo for comparison with the national data base. Student safety is our highest priority and the Raptor Visitor Management System provides a consistent way to deter people who may present a danger to our students. Therefore, all visitors to the school must be scanned into the system and obtain a visitor badge. Thank you in advance for your understanding and support of enhancing school safety protocols at MHS.
