Parent Resources

Make sure to review the Parent FAQ document frequently where you will find answers to the most commonly asked questions during this time. Updates will be highlighted in blue throughout the upcoming weeks. Along with the Parent FAQ document, our student services staff have created a presentation to provide resources on how to help your children cope with mental health. You will find fact sheets as well as age specific information in the presentation.

Message to MV Families

We have noticed that social media and the news are filled with heartfelt stories about school parades and deliveries of surprises from teachers to student homes. We want to share a special note so that families understand why Mill Valley teachers have not yet done this for our school community. We have fielded many inquiries from our teachers and staff asking to do these very things to show their support to our families. These are very hard questions for us to answer because we would love to say, “Yes! That would be amazing!” It is important for you to know that we have consistently been asking our staff to refrain from visiting students’ homes or organizing a community parade that might result in potential crowding or travel that is not essential. Please know that we truly miss everyone so much. When the timing is right, we will be present and ready to celebrate our togetherness in a way that computer screens simply cannot replicate. We cannot wait for that day to come!


Sincerely,

Robin & Allyce
