Make Up Picture Day
RP Studios will have one more make-up picture day at Mammoth HIGH School this coming Wednesday, December 1 in the MPR. He will be there from 8:30am - 10:00am. Click here to order online. All students (in person or MILES) who missed picture day are welcome to attend.
Safety at School
The teachers and staff at Mammoth Elementary School always prioritize safety for your children while at school. Please remind your child of safety regarding coming to and from school, such as:
- If walking, walk in groups.
- Never approach a car or talk with a stranger, even if they are calling for you, or asking for your help. Adults should go to other adults for help, not to children.
- If in trouble, run to the closest house or business.
- Report any unusual incident to your parent.
- Develop a plan for pick up and drop off and stick with it.
School Site Council Voting
Please help us fill the existing vacancies on our MES School Site Council by voting on the following link.
Thank you to all of our families for ensuring a safe and efficient drop off. As a reminder, please pull all the day to top of the driveway for drop offs. There is absolutely no parking in the drop off lane. Children must exit on the passenger's side, and adults may not exit vehicles. If you need to get out of the car, please use our visitor parking lot. Also, there are handicap accessible parking spots in both the parent and visitor parking areas. Please do not use these spaces as a drop off, as they are available for our handicapped staff and visitors.
Lost & Found
The lost and found is piling up quickly. Please check the lost and found to look for misplaced items. Unclaimed items will be donated after school Friday, December 3.
Ski and Snowboard Information
Mammoth Mountain Ski & Snowboard Teams
MMSST has begun their weekday training. To ensure a safe and orderly pick up at MES, we're asking all families to arrive at 12:30 to check out their students. We cannot accommodate early/late pick ups without disrupting classes. If all students can be checked out at a similar time, it makes for a more seamless transition for our students and teachers. Please come to the office to sign out your child. If carpooling, please ensure the adult is on your child's emergency list.
Also, please remember that students must remain academically eligible to participate. Please speak with your child's teacher to create a plan for lost instruction.
MUSD Illness Protocols and Attendance
Please remember that if your child is ill, they should remain home from school. Please do not send your student to school if they have symptoms. Once your student has had no fever in the last 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications, there are three options to return to school. Your student may get a medical note clearing him/her to return safely to school. OR You can provide documentation of a negative COVID test OR, lastly, your student may remain out of school for 10 days since symptom onset.
Mono County Public Health weekly Covid-19 testing from 1:45-3:45 at MHS is available every Tuesday 1:45-3:45 at MHS.
*COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Testing for MUSD at Mammoth Hospital*
You can take your students who may be having Covid-19 like symptoms to get a free rapid test BEFORE bringing them to school.
Testing will be offered Monday-Friday from 7:00am-9:00am. Testing will be closed on holidays and weekends. Rapid tests are for symptomatic people only.
Instructions for rapid testing:
Students will present to the laboratory swabbing area that will be outside in the parking lot. Follow the pre-procedure signage to the Scheduled School Testing Parking spots.
Students will stay in their vehicle and call the phone number on the signage for the Lab swabbing room to alert Lab staff to presence.
Once the result has been determined as negative, a pass will be issued to the student to return to school.
If the result comes back positive, the student will be told to return home and they will be contacted by Mono County Public Health.
