NEW! Masks Continue at School

Parents, as you are likely aware, the CDC on May 13th updated its guidelines regarding the use of face coverings for individuals fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

As of today, state and county health and education officials have not issued any directions or updated guidelines as it applies to schools in response to this change by the CDC.

Masks will continue to be required in all PUSD settings for all employees, students, and families. If and/or when this changes, we will be sure to communicate with everyone, to ensure that there is no confusion.

NEW! 8th Grade Promotion and End of Year Events

We are continuing to plan for our 8th grade promotion for the morning of June 18. It will be on the field as in past years. Because guidelines around events may change very quickly, we are still working on details. Please hold the morning of June 18 for this traditional event.

There are also plans in place for an on-campus fun day for ALL 8th graders during the last week of school. We will send an email directly to all 8th grade families next week with specifics. We are committed to wrapping up our 8th graders last year at MVMS in a fun and special way.
