MVWSD seeks parents, staff and community members for new Task Force groups

Task Force members lend perspective and expertise to important district work that benefits our students. Please consider serving on one of these groups, and let us know by Aug. 30 by completing an application here.

MVWSD is seeking parents from all schools. Spanish interpretation will be provided, if needed.

These committees will begin meeting in the coming weeks.

Solar eclipse on Monday

On August 21, there will be a 75-percent (or partial) solar eclipse visible in Mountain View at approximately 10:15 am.

This is an educational event that doesn’t happen very often, and we’re planning to stay safe while having fun experiencing the eclipse. Google has generously donated eclipse viewing glasses for our student and staff use. They meet the requirements for ISO 12312-2:2015. See Dr. Rudolph try his on here.

Your school will communicate more with you about site-specific happenings. To learn more about the eclipse, so that you may talk with your student, here are some resources:

MVWSD Seamless Summer program serves 60,000 kids’ meals

We're so proud of the MVWSD Food and Nutrition Services and other staff who worked to feed more than 60,000 meals to kids this summer. To learn more, listen here.

 

New District website is live

Over the summer, the District launched its revamped www.mvwsd.org. New are quick links to your favorite pages, user-focused content, research-based navigation and a mobile friendly platform - and of course, our new logo. Check it out!

 

Mark your calendars: Stevenson School groundbreaking Aug. 23.

Stevenson officially will break ground for its new school on Wednesday, Aug. 23 before Back to School Night. Join us at 5:30 outside the District board room, near the Stevenson garden to mark this important moment!
