Fall 2021 Q&A with Superintendent Burmeister
Curious what the fall might look like in MPCSD? Hybrid, fully in-person, will there be a virtual option? As the district engages in planning for its Fall 2021 reopening scenarios, Superintendent Burmeister will host an open Q&A for parents to have their questions addressed. The pandemic and our county guidelines will continue to guide our planning, but we will share what we know, and appreciate your input. Please join us! Tuesday, March 2 at 6:00 p.m. Zoom link here.
COVID Testing with Curative
MPCSD has learned that the Curative kiosk at Ravenswood/Middlefield closes occasionally due to inclement weather. When it is stormy, please check the Curative website, search for the Menlo Park Kiosk, and see if there are appointments available. Their temporary closures during rainy and severely windy weather are to protect their staff and customers. We apologize for any inconvenience. Additional COVID testing resources are listed at our FAQ page.
The California Safe Schools for All Plan
In response to the Governor's Safe Schools for All Plan, MPCSD has provided all required and additional supporting documentation for application for supplemental funds under this new plan. Having been open to in-person instruction since September 8, 2020, MPCSD has shown that rigorous health and safety precautions can well mitigate the risk of COVID-19 at our schools and we continue to provide our in-person program to all grades Preschool-8th while maintaining low rates of infection.
