Mandatory masking to continue through June 3

Dear Parents and Staff,

Thank you for hanging in there with masking in the last couple of weeks. Since we reinstituted masking on April 26, we have not seen community spread within a classroom as we did when we were unmasked. I know that we all wanted to be "done" with masks, but we just aren't there yet. Based on the data (see below), mandatory indoor masking for all students and staff members will continue through the end of the school year.Outdoor masking will continue to be optional. Additionally, we encourage school classes and programs to be outside when possible, to further limit transmission.

Date Student cases Staff cases Combined cases
Tues, 4/26 19 2 21
Tues, 5/3 27 6 33
Tues, 5/10 28 7 35

Dr. Sarah Cody reported at the County's press conference this week that they're seeing a county-wide uptick. COVID transmission rates are around what they were in Feb. The countywide 7-day rolling average of reported COVID-19 cases almost tripled in a month; from 193 on April 3 to 589 on May 3.

The good news is that since masking is an effective means of preventing the transmission of COVID, in addition to our other mitigation strategies, we can keep more staff members and students well and in the classroom. If more of us are well, we can continue to gather and take part in the end-of-the-year activities that we've all been looking forward to; picnics, awards programs, performing arts events, field trips, and promotion ceremonies.

Please stay safe and well, and enjoy the last few days of this school year.

- Dr. Ayindé Rudolph

Starting May 18: View and comment on MVWSD’s Local Control Accountability Plan draft 

LCAP graphicThe District is finalizing its draft of the LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan). This is the District’s three-year plan that  corresponds with the first three years of the District’s new Strategic Plan 2027. These documents are the blueprints that guide all of the District’s work for the benefit of our students.

Beginning May 18, stakeholders are welcome to comment on the draft LCAP plan. Next week, you may read the presentation and supporting materials at mvwsd.org/lcap and make comments. The comments form closes on May 25. Stakeholders may also attend the public hearing during the Board of Trustees meeting on Thursday, June 2 at 6 p.m. on Zoom (the link is: mvwsd.org/trustees).

High Fives: PTA Council Award, Imai fundraiser and Preschool grant

The LAMV PTA Council recognizes extraordinary individuals or organizations that have gone above and beyond in our communities to serve children and youth. Congratulations, Dr. Crates!
