Reopening Update

We are in the planning stages of reopening which is dependent upon the COVID case rates in Mono County. Once cases are below 25/100,000 for two consecutive reporting periods, we will move forward with the hybrid reopening of Mammoth Elementary School. More specific information will be provided this week via Parent Square once the state confirms our case rate.

This school year has presented itself with success stories, challenges & obstacles, and stories of perseverance. Our staff and students have adapted to distance teaching and learning conditions with great bravery.

This form can also be found on our MES main website with a link on the home page. As always, we appreciate you input and feedback.
