We are Happy to be Back for Face -to-Face (F2F) Learning at MPS!

We are committed to safety and health at MPS this year and are continuing to work with the CDC, local county health officials, and other area schools. Manvel School has put many safety precautions into place in order to keep our students and staff healthy. Please refer to our Health and Safety Plan, found on our school website. Please make sure you are signed up with our school-wide REMIND app for instant text messages when parents need to be updated about COVID related news or shut-downs. The links are attached below for you.


We are also asking all parents to please check your child's temperature and health each morning before sending them to school. Keep your child home if they are not feeling well. (*There will be NO perfect attendance awards this year.) We are encouraging all students to stay home if they don't feel well. Learning can be accessed online with your child's teacher if they stay home and are sick for prolonged days this year.


We are heading into unknown territory. Please give each other grace as we maneuver this school year together. Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Our purpose and mission are still the same as before ~ we will continue to educate your child while doing everything we can to keep them safe and healthy!


Here's to a happy and healthy School Year!

New Math Curriculum at MPS

Manvel Public School has purchased a new math curriculum, called Big Ideas Math. This program will be used from Kindergarten through 8th grade and High School Algebra which is offered for advanced math students at MPS in eight grade. Central High School also uses Big Ideas, so our students will make a smooth transition to High School as well. If you want to learn more about Big Ideas Math, please see the link below or visit with your child's teacher.

Hugo's Helps Campaign

This year we are enrolled in "Hugo's Helps" campaign. For every "Essential Everyday" UPC we collect, we'll get 5 cents each. Every bundle of 500 will earn $25.00 for our Manvel school. This campaign takes over the "Our Family" one. Thanks for saving Boxtops for Education and Essential UPC's!

Students are asked to wear a mask on the bus and when social distancing guidelines cannot be followed, like in a crowded hallway. In the classroom, we have put precautions in place so students may take their masks off for a majority of their day

Thanks to everyone who came to Open House! Special thanks to PTO for purchasing two masks for every child and staff member at MPS!
