Happy Friday everyone! We are sending this out a little early this week in the desire to get some information to you ASAP. We hope you all had a great week and have a wonderful, safe weekend! Please read below for more information about school reopening in the Fall and please find the Parent Survey to provide your input.

Parent Reopening Survey

Since each of our students' needs are unique, we are asking that you please fill out one survey for EACH of your Mt. Diablo Unified students. The information collected will be used to help us plan for the fall reopening of school. Thank you for your support and assistance. *Please click the button above to complete the survey*

MDUSD Update

Below is the message posted on our district website concerning return in the Fall. For more information please click here.

The 2020-21 school year will begin on August 13th, and we look forward to reopening, with safety, community, equity, and quality instruction at the forefront of our collective minds. This web page will be our communication and participation platform for staff, students, and our community to keep up-to-date on the progress we are making in our Roadmap to Reopen. You will find that our Roadmap to Reopen is a structured timeline that revolves around our three task force groups:

1) Health and Safety Task Force
2) School Operations Task Force
3) Technology, Teaching, and Learning Task Force

The purpose of our Task Forces is to provide input to the Board of Education on multiple school reopening scenarios that comply with applicable public health orders. The Board of Education will have the final responsibility to decide how Mt. Diablo Unified Schools will reopen. Going forward, you can expect that we will continue with our Friday Letters, that we will regularly update our Roadmap to Reopen, and that we will utilize a variety of communication methods to keep you informed.
