NON STUDENT DAYS AND PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES
Please know that the parent-teacher conferences that were originally scheduled on November 5 and 6 will no longer be taking place. We know that many parents have been receiving an increased amount of communication in the distance learning format and may not need the parent-teacher conference time. We recommend that you maintain communication with your child’s teacher and if you would like to request a parent-teacher conference, please let them know.

The latest email from Superintendent Dr. Kedziora
Getting tested is a critical step to early intervention that slows the spread to others. PCR swab tests for active infections slows the spread of the disease by identifying infected individuals who can then be isolated as well as their close contacts. This process disrupts the virus and slows its spread.
Testing is free at a county- or state-run site and available for anyone. There are 12 testing sites spread throughout Riverside County, both walk-in and drive-up services. To find county and state-run locations and make an appointment, go online to gettested.ruhealth.org. For a list of other COVID-19 test sites in your area, click https://covid19.ca.gov/get-tested/.
We can all do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We care about you and our students, so please take all precautionary measures seriously. As a reminder, here are some flyers on how to properly wear a face covering, how to remove it and how to wash your hands.
I hope you have a good weekend. Stay safe.
Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

The Mission and Vision Statements of any organization are the driving force behind everything they do!
A mission statement: A formal summary of the aims and values of a company, organization, or individual.
A vision statement: A vision statement is a document that states the current and future objectives of an organization. The vision statement is intended as a guide to help the organization make decisions that align with its philosophy and declared set of goals.
Take a moment to review and select the potential mission and vision statement for MVUSD. Thank you for all your hard work and collaboration in this planning!
