The latest email from Dr. Kediziora, Superintendent MVUSD

Getting tested is a critical step to early intervention that slows the spread to others. PCR swab tests for active infections slows the spread of the disease by identifying infected individuals who can then be isolated as well as their close contacts. This process disrupts the virus and slows its spread.

Testing is free at a county- or state-run site and available for anyone. There are 12 testing sites spread throughout Riverside County, both walk-in and drive-up services. To find county and state-run locations and make an appointment, go online to gettested.ruhealth.org. For a list of other COVID-19 test sites in your area, click https://covid19.ca.gov/get-tested/.

We can all do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We care about you and our students, so please take all precautionary measures seriously. As a reminder, here are some flyers on how to properly wear a face covering, how to remove it and how to wash your hands.

I hope you have a good weekend. Stay safe.

Sincerely,

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

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.
