Mill Valley Weekly

Thursday, January 14, 2021

Hello Mill Valley Families,

As we turn the pages of the new year, we wanted to remind you of some upcoming dates. On Friday, January 22nd, our teachers will engage in Universal Screening meetings to discuss the results of the recent STAR test. These meetings help us determine next steps that need to be taken in your child's education. Students will enjoy that day off. Monday, January 25th, is a BLUE DAY for students. Teachers will be communicating plans for virtual learning on that day.


Sincerely,


Robin Schrot, Principal

Allyce Harris, Associate Principal
