MPCSD COVID Protocols
MPCSD offers on-campus Covid testing to students and staff when they are symptomatic at school. To use on-campus symptomatic testing, students must be registered with Primary Health; register here for students and here for staff. If not registered for on-campus testing, symptomatic students will be sent home for testing, or a parent will be required to come to school to administer a test.
This table tracks reported COVID cases during the regular school year. Data will be shared for the whole district, not broken down by campus. You will always receive an emailed notification of a COVID case in your child's classroom. Identifying information about COVID cases is confidential.
Required State Documentation
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. Read more about MPCSD's Safe Schools for All Plan here. (Please note that this is different from MPCSD's district-specific Safety Plan, which is available at the top of this page.)
