Holiday Shoppe is BACK!!!
Mark your calendars as our Mt. Diablo PFC Holiday Shop is right around the corner. This year’s Holiday Shop will be going on from December 13th through December 16th. This is a super fun event for students to shop for family & friends this season while helping to support our PFC. Parents and guardians, the PFC will be looking for Holiday Helpers to staff this year’s event. Look for more details in next week’s Monday mail and on Konstella for shopping details and volunteer sign-ups.
If you have any questions about the Holiday Shop feel free to email Desiree Zee at email@example.com .
Free At-Home Covid Tests for the Return to School
The California Department of Education secured millions of at-home, rapid response COVID test kits, and MDUSD has received 22,000 kits for staff and MDUSD students. Each school has been sent kits to be distributed on a first-come, first served basis.
Kits contain two tests and are to be used at home prior to returning from Winter vacation to provide parents, staff and students with the peace of mind to know they have not tested positive for COVID. They are intended to be used one and three days before school resumes:
Test #1 - Sunday, January 2, 2022
Test #2 - Tuesday, January 4, 2022
School Resumes - Wednesday, January 5, 2022
These iHealth tests include instructions and QR codes, as well as reporting information. Please note:
These one-time, at-home tests do not excuse any symptoms students may have.
Tests cannot be used to shorten any quarantine or other timelines that are part of the MDUSD COVID protocol.
Any positive test results must be reported to the school office as soon as possible.
If you are interested in a kit for your MDUSD student, please fill the google form below or call the office. You may choose to pick up the kit (starting on Monday) or have it sent home in your child's backpack.
