District Technology After Hours Updated
The latest email from Superintendent Dr. Kedziora
On behalf of the board of education, I hope you had a good week and have a relaxing weekend.
Recently, I wrote an article for the Association of California School Administrators’ magazine Leadership. In it, I discuss the many ways our district is working to improve our graduation rate. Our district’s ultimate goal is for parents to join in fulfilling its mission to ensure all students graduate high school prepared to successfully enter into higher education and/or pursue a viable career path. I hope you will read the article, which outlines many of the efforts we have been taking to support our students and families.
As a reminder, next week is a shortened week with schools and offices closed on Wednesday in observance of Veterans Day. We will not be serving grab and go lunches on Wednesday so please plan accordingly.
I want to also mention something that is very important for you to remember when you come to our campus or when you are out in the community. Many of you are caregivers to loved ones such as your parents, grandparents and your own families. I want to remind you that we must take care of ourselves during this pandemic, but we also need to be considerate of the people around us.
If you are feeling sick, please stay home until you feel better. Get tested if you can. There are resources on the Riverside County Public Health website to get tested.
These are things that we all need to take seriously because one decision you make can affect other people’s lives. Please remember to wear your mask and wash your hands, but most importantly, please maintain at least six feet away from others at all times.
Let’s do our part in preventing the spread of COVID-19.
I hope you have a good weekend.
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!
