Starting Saturday, October 16, students at Highland Elementary, Ord Terrace Elementary, Seaside Middle School and Monterey High School will be able to make up for lost learning time due to an absence. MPUSD expects to add more schools as staffing becomes available.
We want to make you aware that California state law, the California Healthy Youth Act, (CHYA), requires that comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education be provided to students at least once in middle school or junior high school and once in high school, starting in grade 7. Students in 9th grade will be receiving instruction (Health Smart curriculum from ETR publication) as one part of their semester-long Freshman Seminar: Health and Wellness course (depending on your child’s schedule, they may be offered this in the current fall 2021 semester or the spring 2022 semester).
MPUSD held a districtwide Town Hall on September 16 with an update on the school year, including COVID-19 protocols, process and communication. The PowerPoint presentation and video archive is available.
Mark your calendars! Parent engagement is critical and we invite your participation and feedback at our 2021-2022 District Advisory Committee and District English Learner Advisory Committee meetings. Our District English Learner Advisory Committee serves in an advisory capacity on English learner programs and services.
Message from the Superintendent on Health and Safety at our Schools: As we close the second full week of instruction, I wanted to express how excited we are to return to in person instruction and how proud I am of our school community's efforts to return to school safely. Your child's health and well being is our top priority, and I want to update you on our current health mitigation efforts, as well as increased support we are working to provide in the coming weeks.
The school year is off to a great start and it has been wonderful to see students and staff back on campuses across the district. As we continue transitioning into our new normal, we are also mindful that COVID-19 is still in our community and that communities are seeing a rise in the Delta variant. Please find information related to COVID-19 protocols while in MPUSD schools and departments.
Assembly Bill 104 includes provisions in the area of student retention, pass/no pass grades, and local graduation requirements exemption. If students and their families are interested in any of these three options, please contact the Education Services Department at 831-645-1200.
MPUSD welcomes students and staff back to school in person, five days a week on Wednesday, August 4. The district hosts a virtual Town Hall on Wednesday, July 28 in English (5 p.m.) and Spanish (6 p.m.) to learn more.
