Please check in with your students to see if they are completing their daily work.

MUSD Updates

Please check your Parent Square notifications as well as the MUSD website for notifications when the school buildings need to be closed due to poor air quality.

The school board met last week regarding reopening of MUSD. We are now in phase 2 and bringing in some small groups of students to Mammoth Elementary School. For any questions regarding reopening, please visit and click the School Reopening tab.

Free school lunches are available from MUSD for all families regardless of income qualification. Pick up is between 12:00-1:00pm at Mammoth High School and from 11:30-12:30 at Crowley Lake Community Center.
