    COVID Data

    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 at your school site. Should your child be identified as a close contact, you will receive additional information. Identifying information about COVID cases is confidential.

Remote Independent Study


    Remote Indepentendt Study (RIS) is available to students from kindergarten through eighth grade for the 2021-22 school year only. RIS is designed to respond to the student's specific educational needs, interests, aptitudes, and abilities within the confines of school board policy.

    At Menlo Park City School District, we believe that in-person instruction is the best approach to learning. However, we understand that students may have needs that make in-person attendance not possible.


    A request for RIS went out to all families on August 10 with a deadline of August 13. If and your family would like to request RIS after August 13, please reach out to the assistant principal at your school site. 


    Once a request for RIS takes place, your site team members will set up a "Pupil-Parent-Educator" meeting to discuss the remote independent study plan. At that meeting parents we be asked to review and sign a RIS Master Written Agreement to the terms of the independent study plan. 


    For additional questions related to Remote Independent Study, please reach out to your child's assistant principal for assistance.
