Mifflin County Regional Police Department
was notified by Mifflin County School District of a scam involving The Mifflin Juniata County Career and Technology Center. A Parent of a student from Mifflin County Jr High School received a call from a subject identifying himself as teacher James Brenner, from the CTC. The subject talked to the parent about entrance exam scores and how
well her student scored. The subject then stated her son would need to purchase a pack of 5 CD’s for school. The subject asked for credit card information. This subject was very convincing as he had personal information about the student. Mifflin County School District and The Mifflin Juniata Career and Technology Center are not collecting money for any school tuition programs. If you receive a call asking for money or your credit card info, write down the phone number the call is coming from and contact Mifflin County Regional Police at
717-248-5059. Never give your name or other vital information.
Senior Portrait Notice
Senior Portraits will be taken in the MCHS auditorium beginning at 9 am on Monday, July 22 and continuing through Friday, July 26, 2013. Seniors received appointment cards in May at school. If a student has misplaced his or her appointment card, one of the following options is available to him or her to confirm his or her appointment time: call Lifetouch's customer service at 814-749-8785 ext 300 or email
email@example.com or stop in at the school office to check the master appointment schedule list. Lifetouch will also be doing phone call reminders to students closer to the time of their appointments.
If a student is unable to make his or her appointment this week, make ups will be done in the fall at the school.
The formal yearbook pose will be taken at the portrait session. The school district dress code must be followed when choosing the senior portrait that will be in the yearbook. Failure to do so will result in your photo not being published in the senior section.
The required yearbook pose is a vertical head and shoulder pose (shoulders may not be exposed), just above the waist, with a blue background. A pose with hands, hats, close-ups or unusual attire is not acceptable as a formal yearbook portrait.

Recently, there was an error made when you were informed that sophomore class dues were $5, they are actually $10 dollars. These dues should be paid by May 24, 2013. To pay them, place your $10 cash or check in an envelope with your name on it, the words Sophomore Class Dues written on it and your first period teacher’s name on it. This should be turned in to the secretaries at the main office who will give it to Mrs. Shearer. Those of you who paid $5 will only need to pay the additional $5 by the May 24 deadline.
