The fight against winter viruses; Free COVID tests

Viruses are on the rise. As the weather gets colder and we spend more time indoors, we need to keep up our guard against germs. MVWSD is sending home free COVID tests for every student and staff member before winter break so that you can test before returning to school in January and then again before returning after Martin Luther King Jr holiday weekend. Your school will be sending home the details. Stay well!

School Information Nights are coming up Jan. 11 and 12
school registration

In January, the Mountain View Whisman School District will be opening student enrollment for next fall starting January 24 through February 10. Parents of new and currently enrolled students are asked to register their students for next fall during this period.

To help new families learn more about school options for elementary school students, virtual school information nights will be held on Jan. 11 (neighborhood schools) and Jan. 12 (choice schools). For families with students ages 3- young 5, preschool and transitional kindergarten meetings are on Jan. 19.
