MPUSD Staff, Parents and Guardians: MPUSD will host attendance boundary Town Halls in October. A school attendance boundary is a geographic area from which students are eligible to attend a local school. Typically, a local school district determines the school attendance boundaries for schools within its district. MPUSD is evaluating and redrawing its school attendance boundaries for the 2022-2023 school year. We welcome stakeholder participation in this process. Join us for one of four in-person meetings at either the Dual Language Academy of the Monterey Peninsula, Foothill Elementary, Highland Elementary, or Monte Vista Elementary. We will also host a virtual meeting. Click here for meeting dates, times, and locations.
MPUSD Staff, Parents and Guardians: Every 10 years after the U.S. Census is complete, school district trustee areas must be reviewed to determine any necessary changes to existing boundaries. MPUSD is collaborating with the Monterey County Office of Education on the process of evaluating trustee areas ahead of the statewide deadline on March 1, 2022. MCOE has hired professional demographers to draft and revise maps. Those maps will be presented to the public and trustees for review over the next few months. Click here for more information Get Involved! MPUSD is looking for volunteers to serve on a redistricting commission. Final commission members will be determined by the Board of Education. Commission members will help receive feedback from the community on proposed changes to trustee area maps, review draft maps and attend future public hearings (other requirements may be added).
Beginning Tuesday, September 21, 2021, the following changes will be implemented: Staff Rapid Testing: Available Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Student and Staff Rapid Testing: Available Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Pre-registration is encouraged to save time when you arrive at the site.

Transcript: I’m Anna Bautista, Activities Director, Math 1, and Link Crew teacher at Marina High and this is your MPUSD Minute. Parents, students, and staff came together to paint a new Sand Dunes Mural at Marina Vista Elementary Arts Academy. This mural is a beautiful addition to the already colorful Marina Vista site. Students at Marina Vista’s music program led by Mr. Todd Clickard, continue to make great progress. Musical notes coming from students’ trumpets and clarinets can be heard each day. MPUSD Classified leaders had the opportunity to participate in a leadership academy. MPUSD is focused on building skills and capacity among leaders to develop their leadership skills. Marina High School held its homecoming parade! Each grade level decorated signs and posters to display at the parade. Students, teachers, and staff proudly walked through Marina streets.

MPUSD Community, The Monterey Peninsula Unified School District proudly offers rapid Covid testing for students and staff. Initially we rolled out several options for our community; however, moving forward we are scaling back the days offered and expanding the hours on the days offered. Beginning Monday, September 6, 2021, the following changes will be implemented: Staff Rapid Testing : MPUSD staff rapid testing will no longer be offered on Mondays and Wednesdays Student and Staff Rapid Testing : Rapid testing for MPUSD students and staff will be offered most Tuesdays and Thursdays through September. See attached flyers for dates. Expanded Hours : Tuesday and Thursday hours will be from 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. and open through lunch Closed September 9 and Election Day : Due to Election Day and polling at the testing site on September 14, the rapid testing site will be closed on this date. We will also be closed on September 9 due to lack of staffing on that date. We will evaluate the testing process in September and communicate out the plans for October toward the end of this month. Thank you for your patience as we continue to navigate and adjust to the fast paced and ever changing landscape. Pre-registration : In an effort to expedite your time the day of rapid COVID testing, please complete the online registration in advance to process your test(s). This is not required in advance, but will help speed up the process the day you go to test.
Parents and Guardians: We want to make you aware that according to California law, medical exemptions for immunizations have been revoked if they were issued prior to January 1, 2020 by any physician who has had disciplinary action taken by the Medical Board of California or Osteopathic Medical Board of California. (Health & Safety Code, §120372(d)(4)). Currently, MPUSD is reviewing any medical exemptions on file to determine if the following two conditions have been met: The medical exemption was issued before January 1, 2020; and The physician who issued the medical exemption has had a disciplinary action taken in any year by the Medical Board of California or Osteopathic Medical Board of California. To find out if a physician has been disciplined, you can look up an issuing physician’s name or medical license number on the list of disciplined physicians or the Department of Consumer Affairs license search website . If your child’s exemption falls under the conditions above, it will no longer be valid beginning this school year. If you believe your child’s medical exemption does not meet both conditions, you appeal within 30 days of notification of the revocation using the instructions and appeal form ( Spanish form ). Children whose medical exemptions are revoked for the reasons above must provide updated documentation to their school or child care immediately. Acceptable documentation includes record of receiving required immunizations or a medical exemption issued through the California Immunization Registry – Medical Exemption web site . You may also refer to MPUSD’s administrative regulation or board policy. MPUSD Administrative Regulation MPUSD Board Policy
